The Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a no-load mutual fund. The Fund seeks above-average, long-term appreciation.

MSCFX (the Fund) is designed for long-term investors. Equity investments are subject to market fluctuations and the Fund’s share price can fall because of weakness in the broad market, a particular industry or specific holdings. Investments in small and mid-cap companies generally are more volatile. International investing risks include among others political, social or economic instability, difficulty in predicting international trade patterns, taxation, and foreign trading practices and greater fluctuations in price than U.S. corporations. The Fund may invest in initial public offerings by small cap companies, which can involve greater risks than investments in companies which are already publicly traded.
Although MSCFX is a no load mutual fund, please note management fees and other expenses will apply. Please refer to the prospectus for further details.
