Cornerstone Capital Access Impact Fund
Institutional Shares – CCIIX
A series of the Capitol Series Trust (the “Trust”)
Supplement to the Summary Prospectus, Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information each dated October 1, 2019, as amended
Based upon a recommendation by Cornerstone Capital, Inc., (the “Adviser”), the Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of the Trust has determined to close and liquidate the Cornerstone Capital Access Impact Fund, (the “Fund”). In connection with this, the Board has adopted a plan of liquidation. Please note that the Fund will be liquidating its assets at the close of business on December 3, 2020. You are welcome, however, to redeem your shares before that date.
Effective immediately, in anticipation of the liquidation, at the close of business on October 27, 2020 the Fund will no longer accept purchases. In addition, as soon as reasonable and practicable, the Adviser will begin an orderly transition of the Fund’s portfolio to cash and cash equivalents and the Fund will thereafter no longer be pursuing its investment objective.
Shareholders of the Fund may redeem their investments as described in the Fund’s Prospectus. Accounts not redeemed by December 2, 2020, will automatically be redeemed on December 3, 2020, and net cash proceeds, less any required withholding, will be sent to the address of record.
If you hold your shares in an individual retirement account (an “IRA”), you have 60 days from the date you receive your proceeds to reinvest or “rollover” your proceeds into another IRA and maintain their tax-deferred status. You must notify the Fund’s transfer agent at 1-800-986-6187 prior to December 3, 2020 of your intent to rollover your IRA account to avoid withholding deductions from your proceeds.
If the Fund has not received your redemption request or other instruction by December 2, 2020, your shares will be redeemed on December 3, 2020, and you will receive your proceeds from the Fund, subject to any required withholding. These proceeds will generally be subject to federal and possibly state and local income taxes if the redeemed shares are held in a taxable account, and the proceeds exceed your adjusted basis in the shares redeemed.
If the redeemed shares are held in a qualified retirement account such as an IRA, the redemption proceeds may not be subject to current income taxation. You should consult with your tax advisor on the consequences of this redemption to you. Checks will be issued to all shareholders of record of the Fund as of the close of business on December 3, 2020.
