Before Investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. This and other information is in the summary or statutory prospectus a copy of which may be obtained by calling 1-800-540-6807 or find this information at the following link. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest.

The Fund’s investment focus on environmental factors could cause it to make or avoid investments that could result in the Fund underperforming similar funds that do not have an environmental focus. The Fund may invest in small and medium capitalization companies that may not have the size, resources and other assets of large capitalization companies. The Fund invests in foreign securities, including ADRs, which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. Diversification does not assure a profit, nor does it protect against a loss in a declining market.

All investments involve risk. The value of the investment and the income from it will vary. There is no guarantee that the initial investment will be returned. ESG considerations that are material will vary by investment style, sector/industry, market trends and client objectives. The strategy seeks to identify companies that it believes may have desirable ESG outcomes, but investors may differ in their views of what constitutes positive or negative ESG outcomes. As a result, the strategy may invest in companies that do not reflect the beliefs and values of any particular investor. The strategy may also invest in companies that would otherwise be screened out of other ESG oriented funds. Security selection will be impacted by the combined focus on ESG assessments and forecasts of return and risk. The strategy intends to invest in companies with measurable ESG outcomes, as determined by Brown Advisory, and seeks to screen out particular companies and industries. Brown Advisory relies on third parties to provide data and screening tools. There is no assurance that this information will be accurate or complete or that it will properly exclude all applicable securities. Investments selected using these tools may perform differently than as forecasted due to the factors incorporated into the screening process, changes from historical trends, and issues in the construction and implementation of the screens (including, but not limited to, software issues and other technological issues). There is no guarantee that Brown Advisory’s use of these tools will result in effective investment decisions.

The Brown Advisory Funds are distributed by ALPS Distributors, Inc. which is not affiliated with Brown Advisory LLC.
