Average Annual Total Return

*Inception dates: Driehaus Micro Cap Growth Fund (1/1/2003), Driehaus Small Cap Growth Fund (1/1/2007), Driehaus International Small Cap Growth Fund (8/1/02), Driehaus Frontier Emerging Markets Fund (5/4/15), Driehaus Emerging Markets Growth Fund (12/31/97), Driehaus Emerging Markets Small Cap Growth Fund (12/1/08), Driehaus Multi-Asset Growth Economies Fund (4/10/17), Driehaus Active Income Fund (11/8/05), and the Driehaus Event Driven Fund (8/26/13). For the Driehaus Micro Cap Growth Fund, Driehaus Small Cap Growth Fund, Driehaus International Small Cap Growth Fund and the Driehaus Emerging Markets Small Cap Growth Fund, “since inception” is calculated to include performance from the Fund’s predecessor limited partnership.

**The average annual total returns of the Driehaus Micro Cap Growth Fund, Driehaus Small Cap Growth Fund, Driehaus International Small Cap Growth Fund and Driehaus Emerging Markets Small Cap Growth Fund include the performance of each fund's predecessor limited partnership, which is calculated from January 1, 2003, January 1, 2007, August 1, 2002 and December 1, 2008 respectively, before each fund commenced operations and succeeded to the assets of its predecessor on November 18, 2013, August 21, 2017, September 17, 2007 and August 20, 2011 respectively. The predecessor limited partnerships were not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended ("1940 Act") and thus were not subject to certain investment and operational restrictions that are imposed by the 1940 Act. If the predecessors had been registered under the 1940 Act, their performance may have been adversely affected. Each fund's predecessor's performance has been restated to reflect estimated expenses of the fund. After-tax performance returns are not included for the predecessor limited partnerships. The predecessors were not regulated investment companies and therefore did not distribute current or accumulated earnings.

***Institutional Class performance is that of the Investor Class from December 31, 1997 through the inception of the Institutional Class on July 17, 2017, and actual Institutional Class performance thereafter. Performance has not been adjusted to reflect the expenses of the Institutional Class for the period prior to the Class’s inception, and Institutional Class performance results would differ if such expenses were reflected.

****The inception of the fund predates the inception of the index.
