Fund Description
Fund Objective
To seek to provide capital appreciation.

Investment Approach
The Fund's manager primarily uses fundamental, bottom-up research while considering a top-down and quantitative analysis. The Fund seeks stocks that the manager believes are undervalued or those trading at a significant discount relative to the intrinsic value of the company as estimated by the manager, and/or are out of favor in the financial markets but have an intermediate to long-term favorable outlook for capital appreciation.

Returns and Expenses

Data quoted is past performance and current performance may be lower or higher. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Performance at NAV does not include the effect of sales charges. Class A shares, including sales charges, reflects the maximum applicable front-end sales load.

Risk Factors: As with any mutual fund, the value of the Fund's shares will change, and you could lose money on your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. These and other risks are more fully described in the fund's prospectus. Not all funds or fund classes may be offered at all broker/ dealers.

Pricing: All prices and year-to-date returns are based on closing quotes unless noted, as supplied to the NASDAQ by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Stylebox: The Morningstar Equity style box reveals a fund's investment strategy by displaying the fund's investment style and the market capitalization of the stocks owned.

Index Description: Russell 2000 Value is an unmanaged index comprised of securities that represent the small cap sector of the stock market. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

The Advantus Venture Fund merged into the Ivy Small Cap Value Fund on Dec. 8, 2003. The performance shown for periods prior to this date is that of the Advantus Venture Fund Class A shares, restated to reflect current sales charges applicable to Ivy Small Cap Value Fund Class A shares. Performance has not been restated to reflect the fees and expenses applicable to the Ivy Small Cap Value Fund. If these expenses were reflected, performance shown would differ.

Performance results for some funds may include the effect of expense reduction arrangements. If those arrangements had not been in place, the performance results would have been lower.

Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement: Through July 31, 2016, Ivy Investment Management Company (IICO), the Fund's investment manager, Ivy Funds Distributor, Inc. (IFDI), the Fund's distributor, and/or Waddell & Reed Services Company, doing business as WI Services Company (WISC), the Fund's transfer agent, have contractually agreed to reimburse sufficient management fees, 12b-1 fees and/or shareholder servicing fees to cap the total annual ordinary operating expenses, excluding acquired fund fees and expenses, for the Fund's Class A shares at 0.49%, Class B shares at 1.40%, Class C shares at 1.29%, Class I shares at 0.16%, Class R shares at 0.72% and Class Y shares at 0.38%. Prior to that date, the expense limitation may not be terminated by IICO, IFDI, WISC or the Board of Trustees.

Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement: Through July 31, 2015, to the extent that the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses of the Class Y shares exceeds the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses of the Class A shares, Ivy Funds Distributor, Inc. (IFDI), the Fund's distributor, and/or Waddell & Reed Services Company, doing business as WI Services Company (WISC), the Fund's transfer agent, have contractually agreed to reimburse sufficient 12b-1 and/or shareholder servicing fees to ensure that the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses of the Class Y shares do not exceed the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses of the Class A shares, as calculated at the end of each month. Prior to that date, the expense limitation may not be terminated by IFDI, WISC or the Board of Trustees.

Morningstar Ratings: For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of all sales charges), placing emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund and rated separately.) A fund's overall rating is derived from a weighted average of the 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) rating metrics. Morningstar Rating is for the share classes specified; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

Information is subject to change and is not intended to represent any past or future investment recommendations.

Please remember that an investment in a mutual fund involves risk. Investment return and principal value of a mutual fund investment will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

YTD Prices can be updated 3 to 4 hours after the Daily Pricing information which can result in mismatching data.
