Past Performance is no guarantee of future results. Performance information has been rounded to the nearest cent and difference between the performance of share classes may accordingly appear larger or smaller than an investor could expect to be the case over time. Total returns assume reinvestment of all dividends, capital gain and return of capital distributions, if any, and does not include a sales charge or deduction of any taxes. NAV = NAV Per Share, MTD = Month to Date, QTD = Quarter to Date, YTD = Year to Date and ITD = Inception to Date. Annualized Total Return is calculated by taking the cumulative Total Return for the respective period and annualizing, inclusive of compounding. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Annual Expense Ratios: Gross expenses are higher in certain share classes due to low share class assets. Annual Expense Ratios: Gross: Class A shares 6.67% / Class I shares 6.16% / Class L shares 6.69% / Class M shares 6.91% / Class N shares 6.15% / Class U shares 6.87% / Class Y shares 6.41%. Net: Class A shares 6.73% / Class I shares 6.32% / Class L shares 6.81% / Class M shares 6.96% / Class N shares 6.22% / Class U shares 6.88% /  Class Y shares 6.48%.  The Net Annual Expense Ratios exceed the Gross Annual Expense Ratios for certain share classes as a result of recoupment of previously reimbursed expense waivers. The Adviser and the Fund have entered into the Expense Limitation Agreement under which the Adviser has agreed contractually for a one-year period ending April 30, 2024. The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. Current performance and expense ratios may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the fund will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when repurchased, may be worth more or less than the original cost. For performance data current to the most recent month-end, visit www.CarlyleTacticalCredit.com or call 833-677-3646. Class Y, N, M, and Class I shares are not subject to a sales charge. The net expense ratio takes into account contractual fee waivers and/ or reimbursements, without which performance would have been less. These undertakings may not be amended or withdrawn for one year from the date of the current prospectus, unless approved by the Board. Generally, Class A Shares and Class L Shares are offered through Financial Intermediaries on brokerage or transactional platforms. Class Y, M, N Shares and Class I Shares are generally available through fee-based programs, registered investment advisers and other institutional accounts. Generally, Class I shares can only be purchased with a $250,000 initial investment. See prospectus for details. In April 2020, the Fund was required to switch from OFI's valuation policy to Carlyle' valuation methodology ("Bid vs. Mid").
