Effective as of the close of business on February 18, 2011, the IVA Worldwide Fund and the IVA International Fund will close to new investors. The close is designed to be a "soft close" meaning the Funds will remain open to existing shareholders. Further, where operationally feasible, financial advisers who currently have clients invested in the Funds may continue to buy shares for existing and future clients and participants in retirement plans which utilize the Funds as investment options may continue to direct contributions to the Funds. Additional exceptions may also apply.

Michael Malafronte, Managing Partner at International Value Advisers, LLC and President of IVA Funds, recently remarked, "We have always been open with our financial advisers and shareholders about the fact that we are mindful of the firm's overall capacity constraints. The Board of Trustees, our portfolio managers, Charles de Vaulx and Chuck de Lardemelle, and I believe that this is in the best interest of the Funds' shareholders."

Additional information regarding the close of the Funds will be made available in a supplement to the prospectus. The supplement will set forth the details of the soft close and will be posted on the Funds’ website at www.ivafunds.com.
