Total returns presented for periods less than one year are cumulative, returns for periods one year and greater are annualized.
Expense Ratio: Institutional: 1.09% gross and 1.00% net, Retail: 1.34% gross and 1.25% net as of the most recent prospectus, dated January 26, 2024 as modified by the supplement thereto. The Gross Expense Ratio reflects actual expenses and the Net Expense Ratio reflects the impact of waivers or recaptures if any.
The performance quoted herein is net of all fees and expenses and represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. High short-term performance of the Fund is unusual and investors should not expect such performance to be repeated. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost, and current performance may be higher or lower than the performance quoted.
The Fund offers two classes of shares. Retail Class shares have a shareholder services fee of up to 0.25% per annum of average daily net assets. Institutional Class shares have no shareholder services fee. For more information, please see the prospectus.
The ten year and inception to date total returns for the Retail Class Shares have been increased by a one-time adjustment as a result of a management change in estimate relating to shareholder servicing and administrative servicing fees. Had this change in estimate not occurred, total return would have been lower.
RiverPark has agreed contractually to waive its fees and reimburse expenses of the Fund, including expenses associated with the Funds shareholder services plan and administrative services plan, to the extent necessary to ensure that operating expenses (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses and extraordinary expenses) do not exceed, on an annual basis, 1.00% for the Institutional Class Shares and 1.25% for the Retail Class Shares. This agreement is in effect until at least January 31, 2025 and, subject to annual approval by the Board of Trustees of RiverPark Funds Trust, this arrangement will remain in effect unless and until the Board of Trustees approves its modification or termination or the Adviser notifies the Fund at least 30 days prior to the annual approval of its determination not to continue the agreement.
