Please refer to the Prospectus for more complete information including investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the investment company. The prospectus contains this and other information about the investment company. Please read it carefully before you invest.

Mutual fund investing involves risk, principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. The risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities.  Investments in Asset Backed and Mortgage Backed Securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of such as credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic development   Investments in bonds of foreign issuers involve greater volatility, political and economic risks, and differences in accounting methods  Investment by the Fund in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities.  Results include the reinvestment of all dividends and capital gains distributions.

Duration: A commonly used measure of the potential volatility of the price of a debt security, or the aggregate market value of a portfolio of debt securities, prior to maturity. Securities with a longer duration generally have more volatile prices than securities of comparable quality with a shorter duration.

Although the makeup of the Bond Fund’s portfolio is constantly changing, as of June 30, 2018, 74.36% of the Fund’s portfolio was invested in corporate bonds. Due to prevailing market conditions, the composition of the Fund’s portfolio as of that date was consistent with the composition of the Fund’s portfolio over the past 5 years.  In addition, as of that date 62.96% of the Fund’s portfolio was invested in securities rated BBB by Standard & Poor’s, while an additional 4.53% of the Fund’s portfolio was rated below investment grade and 17.96% of the Fund’s portfolio was not rated by Standard & Poor’s. For portfolio information current as of the most recent quarter-end, please call 1-800-999-0887 or visit our website at www.thompsonim.com. Compared to a portfolio that is more evenly allocated between government and corporate bonds, a portfolio that is heavily allocated to corporate bonds may provide higher returns, but is also subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk and to greater price fluctuations. A portfolio that is significantly allocated to bonds having lower and below-investment-grade ratings may also be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk and experience greater price fluctuations than a portfolio comprised of higher-rated investment-grade bonds.

While the Fund is no-load, management fees and other expenses will apply. Please refer to the prospectus for additional details.
