Dear Clients and Fellow Shareholders,
We are re-opening the Grandeur Peak Emerging Markets Opportunities Fund, Grandeur Peak Global Opportunities Fund, Grandeur Peak Global Reach Fund, and Grandeur Peak International Opportunities Fund to all shareholders as of Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
We continue to be encouraged by the limited redemptions by our shareholders as we experience increasing volatility in the markets, and believe it is in the best interest of both shareholders and portfolio managers to have the funds open at this time. Opening the Funds to new shareholders may provide an opportunity to make investment decisions in today’s depressed markets that we believe will benefit shareholders for the long term.
Grandeur Peak Emerging Markets Opportunities Fund GPEOX/GPEIX Open
Grandeur Peak Global Contrarian Fund GPGCX Open
Grandeur Peak Global Micro Cap GPMCX Open*
Grandeur Peak Global Opportunities Fund GPGOX/GPGIX Open
Grandeur Peak Global Reach Fund GPROX/GPRIX Open
Grandeur Peak Global Stalwarts Fund GGSOX/GGSXY Open

Grandeur Peak US Stalwarts Fund GUSYX Open
In the event the market has an unexpected rebound or the flows into the funds exceed our target asset levels, we are prepared to return back to a Soft Closed status to maintain a relatively small asset base and preserve the nimbleness for our research team. We will, of course, notify you in advance of any future changes to the funds’ status.
To learn more about any of our funds, call any of us on the client team (contacts below) or our shareholder services team at 855-377-7325. Additional information is also posted on our website: www.grandeurpeakglobal.com.
