Investor Class
The funds offered in this Prospectus (each a “Fund” and collectively the “Funds”) seek calendar month leveraged investment results and are riskier than most mutual funds because the Funds seek 1.75 times the calendar month performance of a respective underlying index. The Funds with “Bull” in their names attempt to provide calendar month investment results that correspond to 1.75 times the calendar month performance of an underlying index and are collectively referred to as the “Bull Funds.” The Funds with “Bear” in their names attempt to provide calendar month investment results that correspond to 1.75 times the inverse (or opposite) of the performance of an underlying index, a result that is the opposite of most mutual funds, and are collectively referred to as the “Bear Funds.”
The Funds are not suitable for all investors. The Funds are designed to be utilized only by sophisticated investors, such as traders and active investors employing dynamic strategies. Investors in the Funds should:
(a)
understand the risks associated with the use of leverage,
(b)
understand the consequences of seeking calendar month leveraged investment results,
(c)
for a Bear Fund, understand the risk of shorting, and
(d)
actively monitor and manage their investments.
Investors who do not understand the Funds or do not intend to actively manage and monitor their investments should not buy the Funds.
There is no assurance that any Fund will achieve its investment objective and an investment in a Fund could lose money. No single Fund is a complete investment program.
An investor who purchases shares on a day other than the last business day of a calendar month will generally receive more, or less, than 175% (for a Bull Fund) or -175% (for a Bear Fund) exposure to the underlying index from that point until the end of the month. The actual exposure is a function of the performance of the underlying index from the end of the prior calendar month to an investor’s purchase date. If a Fund’s shares are held for a period other than a calendar month, the Fund’s performance is likely to deviate from 175% (for a Bull Fund) or -175% (for a Bear Fund) of the underlying index’s performance for the period the Fund is held. This deviation will increase with higher underlying index volatility and longer holding periods.
These securities have not been approved or disapproved by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) or the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), nor have the SEC or CFTC passed upon the adequacy of this Prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

Summary Section
Direxion Monthly S&P 500® Bull 1.75X Fund
Important Information Regarding the Fund
The Direxion Monthly S&P 500® Bull 1.75X Fund (formerly Direxion Monthly S&P 500® Bull 2X Fund) (the “Fund”) seeks calendar month leveraged (1.75X) investment results and is very different from most other mutual funds. As a result, the Fund may be riskier than alternatives that do not use leverage because the Fund’s objective is to magnify the monthly performance of the S&P 500® Index (the "Index"). The return for investors that invest for periods longer or shorter than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, should not be expected to be 175% of the performance of the Index for the period. The return of the Fund for a period longer than a full calendar month will be the result of each full calendar month’s compounded return over the period, which will very likely differ from 175% of the return of the Index for that period. Longer holding periods, higher volatility of the Index and leverage increase the impact of compounding on an investor’s returns. During periods of higher Index volatility, the volatility of the Index may affect the Fund’s return as much as, or more than, the return of the Index.
The Fund is not suitable for all investors. The Fund is designed to be utilized only by knowledgeable investors who understand the potential consequences of seeking calendar month leveraged (1.75X) investment results, understand the risks associated with the use of leverage and are willing to monitor their portfolios frequently. The Fund is not intended to be used by, and is not appropriate for, investors who do not intend to actively monitor and manage their portfolios. For periods longer than a calendar month, the Fund will lose money if the Index’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Fund will lose money even if the Index’s performance increases. An investor could lose the full principal value of his/her investment within a calendar month if the Index loses more than 58% in one month.
Investment Objective
The Fund seeks monthly investment results, before fees and expenses, of 175% of the calendar month performance of the Index. The Fund does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective for a period of time different than a full calendar month.
Fees and Expenses of the Fund
This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold, and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the tables and examples below.

"Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses" include fees and expenses incurred indirectly by the Fund as a result of investments in other investment companies, including investments in money market funds. Because acquired fund fees and expenses are not borne directly by the Fund, they will not be reflected in the expense information in the Fund's financial statements and the information presented in the table will differ from that presented in the Fund's financial highlights included in the Fund's reports to shareholders.
(2)
Rafferty Asset Management, LLC (“Rafferty” or the “Adviser”), has entered into an Operating Expense Limitation Agreement with the Fund. Under the Operating Expense Limitation Agreement, Rafferty has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for Other Expenses through September 1, 2024, to the extent that the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses exceed 1.35% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses).
Any expense waiver or reimbursement is subject to recoupment by the Adviser within the three years after the expense was waived/reimbursed only if overall Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses fall below the lesser of this percentage limitation and any percentage limitation in place at the time the expense was waived/reimbursed. This agreement may be terminated or revised at any time with the consent of the Board of Trustees.
Example - This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio Turnover
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in Annual Fund Operating Expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 0% of the average

value of its portfolio. However, this portfolio turnover is calculated without regard to cash instruments or derivatives. If such instruments were included, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate would be significantly higher.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Index is designed to be comprised of stocks that are the 500 leading, large-cap U.S.-listed issuers. It selects constituents on the basis of market capitalization, financial viability of the company and the public float, liquidity and price of a company’s shares outstanding. The Index is a float-adjusted and market capitalization-weighted index.
As of October 31, 2022, the Index consisted of 503 constituents, which had a median total market capitalization of $28.8 billion, total market capitalizations ranging from $3.4 billion to $2.5 trillion and were concentrated in the information technology and healthcare sectors. The Index is rebalanced quarterly.
The components of the Index and the percentages represented by various sectors in the Index may change over time. The Fund will concentrate its investment in a particular industry or group of industries (i.e., hold 25% or more of its total assets in the stocks of a particular industry or group of industries) to approximately the same extent as the Index is so concentrated.
The Fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in securities of the Index, exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") that track the Index and other financial instruments that provide monthly leveraged exposure to the Index or to ETFs that track the Index, which, in combination, provide returns consistent with the Fund’s investment objective. The financial instruments in which the Fund most commonly invests are swap contracts which are intended to produce economically leveraged investment results.
The Fund may invest in the securities of the Index, an ETF that tracks the Index, or utilize derivatives such as swaps on the Index, swaps on an ETF that tracks the Index or a substantially similar index as the Fund, or futures contracts to obtain leveraged exposure to the securities or a representative sample of the securities in the Index that have aggregate characteristics similar to those of the Index. On a day-to-day basis, the Fund is expected to hold money market funds, deposit accounts with institutions with high quality credit ratings, and/or short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements. The Fund seeks to remain fully invested at all times consistent with its stated investment objective.
Because a significant portion of the assets of the Fund may come from investors using “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies, the Fund may engage in frequent trading.
The Fund is “non-diversified,” meaning that a relatively high percentage of its assets may be invested in a limited number of issuers of securities. Additionally, the Fund’s investment objective is not a fundamental policy and may be changed by the Fund’s Board of Trustees without shareholder approval.
Principal Investment Risks
An investment in the Fund entails risk. The Fund may not achieve its leveraged investment objective and there is a risk that you could lose all of your money invested in the Fund. The Fund is not a complete investment program. In addition, the Fund presents risks not traditionally associated with most mutual funds. It is important that investors closely review all of the risks listed below and understand them before making an investment in the Fund.
Effects of Compounding and Market Volatility Risk - The Fund has a monthly leveraged investment objective and the Fund’s performance for periods greater than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, will be the result of each month's returns compounded over the period, which is very likely to differ from 175% of the Index’s performance, before fees and expenses. Compounding affects all investments, but has a more significant impact on funds that are leveraged and that rebalance monthly and becomes more pronounced as volatility and holding periods increase. The impact of compounding will impact each shareholder differently depending on the period of time an investment in the Fund is held and the volatility of the Index during the shareholder’s holding period of an investment in the Fund.
The chart below provides examples of how Index volatility and its return could affect the Fund’s performance. Fund performance for periods greater than one calendar month can be estimated given any set of assumptions for the following factors: a) Index volatility; b) Index performance; c) period of time; d) financing rates associated with leveraged exposure; e) other Fund expenses; and f) dividends or interest paid with respect to securities of the Index. The chart below illustrates the impact of two principal factors – Index volatility and Index performance – on Fund performance. The chart shows estimated Fund returns for a number of combinations of Index volatility and Index performance over a one-year period. Performance shown in the chart assumes that: (i) no dividends were paid with respect to the securities included in the Index; (ii) there were no Fund expenses; and (iii) borrowing/lending rates of 0%. If Fund expenses and/or actual borrowing/lending rates were reflected, the estimated returns would be different than those shown. Particularly during periods of higher Index volatility, compounding will cause results for periods longer than a full calendar month to vary from 175% of the performance of the Index.
As shown in the chart below, the Fund would be expected to lose 4% if the Index provided no return over a one year period during which the Index experienced annualized volatility of 25%. At higher ranges of volatility, there is a chance of a significant loss of value in the Fund, even if the Index’s return is flat. For instance, if the Index’s annualized volatility is 100%, the Fund would be expected to lose 48.1% of its value, even if the cumulative Index return for the year was 0%. Areas shaded red (or dark gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return less than 175% of the performance of the Index and those shaded green (or light gray) represent those scenarios where

the Fund can be expected to return more than 175% of the performance of the Index. The table below is not a representation of the Fund’s actual returns, which may be significantly better or worse than the returns shown below as a result of any of the factors discussed above or in “Monthly Index Correlation Risk” below. The volatility of exchange traded securities or instruments that reflect the value of the Index may differ from the volatility of the Index.

The Index’s annualized historical volatility rate for the five year period ended September 30, 2022 was 21.29%. The Index’s highest volatility rate for any twelve-month period (October 1 to September 30) was 34.04% and volatility for a shorter period of time may have been substantially higher. The Index’s annualized performance for the five-year period ended September 30, 2022 was 9.23%. Historical Index volatility and performance are not indications of what the Index volatility and performance will be in the future. The volatility of ETFs or instruments that reflect the value of the Index, such as swaps, may differ from the volatility of the Index.
For information regarding the effects of volatility and Index performance on the long-term performance of the Fund, see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Techniques and Policies” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus, and “Negative Implications of Leveraged Monthly Goals In Volatile Markets” in the Fund’s Statement of Additional Information.
Leverage Risk The Fund obtains investment exposure in excess of its net assets by utilizing leverage and may lose more money in market conditions that are adverse to its investment objective than a fund that does not utilize leverage. An investment in the Fund is exposed to the risk that a decline in the monthly performance of the Index will be magnified. This means that an investment in the Fund will be reduced by an amount equal to 1.75% for every 1% monthly decline in the Index, not including the costs of financing leverage and other operating expenses, which would further reduce its value. The Fund could theoretically lose an amount greater than its net assets in the event of an Index decline of more than 58%. This would result in a total loss of a shareholder’s investment in one day even if the Index subsequently moves in the opposite direction and eliminates all or a portion of its earlier daily change. A total
loss may occur in a single day even if the Index does not lose all of its value. Leverage will also have the effect of magnifying any differences in the Fund’s correlation with the Index and may increase the volatility of the Fund.
Due to the limited availability of necessary investments or financial instruments, the Fund could, among other things, as a defensive measure, limit or suspend purchases or redemptions of Fund shares until the Adviser determines that the requisite exposure to the Index is obtainable. The Fund may also change its investment objective by, for example, seeking to track an alternative index, or lowering its leverage multiple or the Fund could close.
Derivatives Risk Derivatives are financial instruments that derive value from the underlying reference asset or assets, such as stocks, bonds, or funds (including ETFs), interest rates or indexes. Investing in derivatives may be considered aggressive and may expose the Fund to greater risks, and may result in larger losses or smaller gains, than investing directly in the reference assets underlying those derivatives, which may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective.
The Fund’s investments in derivatives may pose risks in addition to, and greater than, those associated with directly investing in securities or other investments, including risk related to the market, leverage, imperfect correlations with underlying investments or the Fund’s other portfolio holdings, higher price volatility, lack of availability, counterparty, liquidity, valuation and legal restrictions. The performance of a derivative may not track the performance of its reference asset for various reasons, including due to fees and other costs associated with it. Additionally, a swap on an ETF may not closely track the performance of the Index due to costs associated with trading ETFs, such as an ETF’s premium or discount and the difference between its market price and its net asset value. If the Index has a dramatic intraday increase or decrease that causes a material change in the Fund’s net assets, the terms of a swap agreement between the Fund and its counterparty may permit the counterparty to immediately close the swap agreement with the Fund. In that event, the Fund may not be able to enter into another swap agreement or invest in other derivatives to achieve its investment objective. This may occur even if the Index reverses all or a portion of its intraday movement by the end of the day. Because derivatives often require only a limited initial investment, the use of derivatives may expose the Fund to losses in excess of the amount initially invested. As a result, the value of an investment in the Fund may change quickly and without warning. Additionally, any financing, borrowing or other costs associated with using derivatives may also have the effect of lowering the Fund’s return.
Counterparty Risk A counterparty may be unwilling or unable to make timely payments to meet its contractual obligations or may fail to return holdings that are subject to the agreement with the counterparty. If the counterparty or its affiliate becomes insolvent, bankrupt or defaults on its payment obligations to the Fund, the value of an investment held by the Fund may decline. Additionally, if any collateral posted by the counterparty for the benefit
3
Direxion Funds Prospectus

of the Fund is insufficient or there are delays in the Fund’s ability to access such collateral, the Fund may not be able to achieve its leveraged investment objective.
In addition, the Fund may enter into swap agreements with a limited number of counterparties, which may increase the Fund’s exposure to counterparty credit risk. Further, there is a risk that no suitable counterparties will be willing to enter into, or continue to enter into, transactions with the Fund and, as a result, the Fund may not be able to achieve its leveraged investment objective or may decide to change its leveraged investment objective.
Rebalancing Risk If for any reason the Fund is unable to rebalance all or a part of its portfolio, or if all or a portion of the portfolio is rebalanced incorrectly, the Fund’s investment exposure may not be consistent with its investment objective. In these instances, the Fund may have investment exposure to the Index that is significantly greater or significantly less than its stated multiple. The Fund may be more exposed to leverage risk than if it had been properly rebalanced and may not achieve its investment objective, leading to significantly greater losses or reduced gains.
Intra-Calendar Month Investment Risk The Fund seeks calendar month leveraged investment results. The exact exposure of an investment in the Fund intra-month will depend upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor. If the Index gains value, the Fund’s net assets will rise by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Conversely, if the Index loses value, the Fund’s net assets will decline by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Thus, an investor who purchases shares on a day other than the last business day of a calendar month will likely obtain more, or less, than 175% leveraged investment exposure to the Index, depending upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor.
If there is a significant intra-month market event and/or the securities of the Index experience a significant decrease, the Fund may not meet its investment objective or be able to rebalance its portfolio appropriately.
Monthly Index Correlation Risk There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve a high degree of correlation with its monthly leveraged investment objective relative to the Index. A number of factors may adversely affect the Fund’s correlation with the Index, including fees, expenses, transaction costs, financing costs related to the use of derivatives, investments in ETFs, directly or indirectly as a reference asset for derivative instruments, income items, valuation methodology, accounting standards, significant purchase and redemption activity by Fund shareholders and illiquidity in the markets for the securities or derivatives held by the Fund. Market disruptions, regulatory restrictions or extreme volatility will also adversely affect the Fund’s ability to adjust exposure to the required levels.
In order to achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index, the Fund seeks to rebalance its portfolio on a monthly basis to keep exposure consistent with its leveraged investment objective. Being materially over- or under-exposed to the Index may prevent the Fund from achieving a high
degree of correlation with the Index. The target amount of portfolio exposure is impacted by the Index’s movement, thus it is unlikely the Fund will have perfect exposure (175%) to the Index on the rebalance date and the likelihood of the Fund being materially over- or under-exposed is higher on days when the Index experiences volatility near the close of the trading day.
The Fund may not have investment exposure to all securities in the Index, or its weighting of investment exposure to such stocks or industries may be different from that of the Index. In addition, the Fund may invest in, or have exposure to, securities or financial instruments not included in the Index. The Fund may also take or refrain from taking certain positions in order to improve tax efficiency or comply with regulatory restriction, either of which may negatively impact the Fund’s correlation with the Index. The Fund may be subject to large movements of assets into and out of the Fund, potentially resulting in the Fund being over- or under-exposed to the Index. Activities surrounding Index reconstitutions and other Index repositioning events may hinder the Fund’s ability to meet its calendar month leveraged investment objective.
Other Investment Companies (including ETFs) Risk
The Fund may invest in another investment company, including an ETF, to pursue its investment objective. When investing in another investment company, including an ETF, the Fund becomes a shareholder of that investment company and as a result, Fund shareholders indirectly bear the Fund’s proportionate share of the fees and expenses of the other investment company, in addition to the fees and expenses of the Fund’s own operations. The Fund must rely on the other investment company to achieve its investment objective. Accordingly, if the other investment company fails to achieve its investment objective, the Fund’s performance will likely be adversely affected. To the extent that the Fund obtains exposure to another investment company, including an ETF, by entering into a derivative contract whose reference asset is the investment company, the Fund will not be a shareholder of the other investment company but will still be exposed to the risk that it may fail to achieve its investment objective and adversely impact the Fund. In addition, to the extent that the Fund invests in an investment company that is an ETF, it will be exposed to all of the risks associated with the ETF structure. Shares of ETFs are listed and traded on national stock exchanges, their shares may trade at a discount or a premium to an ETF’s net asset value which may result in an ETF’s market price being more or less than the value of the index that the ETF tracks especially during periods of market volatility or disruption. There may also be additional trading costs due to an ETF’s bid-ask spread, which may adversely affect the Fund’s performance.
Market Risk The Fund’s investments are subject to changes in general economic conditions, general market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investment in securities markets. Investment markets can be volatile and prices of investments can change substantially due to various factors including, but not limited to, economic growth or recession, changes in interest rates, changes in the actual or perceived creditworthiness of issuers, general market liquidity, exchange trading suspensions and closures, and public health risks.

The Fund is subject to the risk that geopolitical events will disrupt the securities, swap agreements or futures contract markets and adversely affect global economies, markets and exchanges. Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, natural disasters, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, conflicts and social unrest or other events could have a significant impact on the Fund, its investments, and the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective.
Healthcare Sector Risk The profitability of companies in the healthcare sector may be affected by extensive, costly and uncertain government regulation, restrictions on government reimbursement for medical expenses, rising costs of medical products and services, pricing pressure, changes in the demand for medical products and services, an increased emphasis on outpatient services, limited product lines, industry innovation and/or consolidation, changes in technologies and other market developments. Many healthcare companies are heavily dependent on patent protection, which may be time consuming and costly. The expiration of patents may adversely affect the profitability of these companies. Many healthcare companies are subject to extensive litigation based on product liability and similar claims. Healthcare companies are subject to competitive forces that may make it difficult to raise prices and, in fact, may result in price discounting. Many new products in the healthcare sector require significant research and development and may be subject to regulatory approvals. The process of obtaining such approvals may be long and costly with no guarantee that any product will come to market.
Information Technology Sector Risk The value of stocks of information technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology is particularly vulnerable to rapid changes in technology product cycles, rapid product obsolescence, government regulation, and competition, both domestically and internationally, including competition from competitors with lower production costs. In addition, many information technology companies have limited product lines, markets, financial resources or personnel. The prices of information technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology, especially those of smaller, less-seasoned companies, tend to be more volatile and less liquid than the overall market. Information technology companies are heavily dependent on patent and intellectual property rights, the loss or impairment of which may adversely affect profitability. Additionally, companies in the information technology sector may face dramatic and often unpredictable changes in growth rates and competition for the services of qualified personnel.
Large-Capitalization Company Risk Large-capitalization companies may be less able to adapt to changing market conditions or to respond quickly to competitive challenges or to changes in business, product, financial, or market conditions and may not be able to maintain growth at rates that may be achieved by well-managed smaller and mid-size companies, which may affect the companies’ returns.
Mid-Capitalization Company Risk - Mid-capitalization companies often have narrower markets for their goods and/or services, more limited product lines, services, markets, managerial and financial resources, less stable earnings, or are dependent on a small management group. In addition, because these stocks are not well known to the investing public, do not have significant institutional ownership and are followed by relatively few security analysts, there will normally be less publicly available information concerning these securities compared to what is available for the securities of larger companies. As a result, the price of mid-capitalization companies can be more volatile and they may be less liquid than large-capitalization companies, which could increase the volatility of the Fund’s portfolio.
Early Close/Trading Halt Risk An exchange or market may close or issue trading halts on specific securities of financial instruments or restrict the ability to buy or sell certain portfolio securities or financial instruments, which may result in the Fund being unable to buy or sell certain securities or financial instruments. In such circumstances, the Fund may be unable to accurately price its investments, may incur significant tracking differences with its Index, may incur substantial losses and may limit or stop purchases of the Fund.
Equity Securities Risk Publicly issued equity securities, including common stocks, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time. Fluctuations in the value of equity securities in which the Fund invests, and/or has exposure to, will cause the net asset value of the Fund to fluctuate.
Money Market Instrument Risk The Fund may use a variety of money market instruments for cash management purposes, including money market funds, depositary accounts and repurchase agreements. Money market funds may be subject to credit risk with respect to the debt instruments in which they invest. Depository accounts may be subject to credit risk with respect to the financial institution in which the depository account is held. Repurchase agreements may be subject to market and credit risk related to the collateral securing the repurchase agreement. Money market instruments may lose money.
Market Timing Activity Risk Rafferty expects a significant portion of the assets of the Fund to come from professional money managers and investors who use the Fund as part of “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies. These strategies often call for frequent trading, which may lead to large shareholder transactions into and out of the Fund. These large movements of assets may lead to increased portfolio turnover, higher transaction costs and the possibility of increased net realized capital gains, including net short-term capital gains. Additionally, these large movement of assets may have a negative impact on the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective or maintain a consistent level of operating expenses. In certain circumstances, the Fund’s expense ratio may vary from current estimates or the historical ratio disclosed in this Prospectus.
Non-Diversification Risk The Fund is non-diversified, which means it invests a high percentage of its assets in a limited number of securities. Additionally, the Fund may invest a relatively high percentage of its assets in swap

agreements with a single counterparty or a few counterparties. This may result in the Fund experiencing increased volatility and its net asset value and total return may fluctuate more or fall greater in times of weaker markets than a diversified fund.

Direxion Monthly S&P 500® Bear 1.75X Fund
Important Information Regarding the Fund
The Direxion Monthly S&P 500® Bear 1.75X Fund (formerly Direxion Monthly S&P 500® Bear 2X Fund) (the “Fund”) seeks calendar month inverse leveraged (-1.75X) investment results and is very different from most other mutual funds. As a result, the Fund may be riskier than alternatives that do not use leverage because the Fund’s objective is to magnify the monthly inverse performance of the S&P 500® Index (the "Index"). The return for investors that invest for periods longer or shorter than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, should not be expected to be -175% of the performance of the Index for the period. The return of the Fund for a period longer than a full calendar month will be the result of each full calendar month’s compounded return over the period, which will very likely differ from -175% of the return of the Index for that period. Longer holding periods, higher volatility of the Index and leverage increase the impact of compounding on an investor’s returns. During periods of higher Index volatility, the volatility of the Index may affect the Fund’s return as much as, or more than, the return of the Index.
The Fund is not suitable for all investors. The Fund is designed to be utilized only by knowledgeable investors who understand the potential consequences of seeking calendar month inverse leveraged (-1.75X) investment results, understand the risks associated with the use of leverage and shorting and are willing to monitor their portfolios frequently. The Fund is not intended to be used by, and is not appropriate for, investors who do not intend to actively monitor and manage their portfolios. For periods longer than a calendar month, the Fund will lose money if the Index’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Fund will lose money even if the Index’s performance decreases. An investor could lose the full principal value of his/her investment within a calendar month if the Index gains more than 58% in one month.
Investment Objective
The Fund seeks monthly investment results, before fees and expenses, of 175% of the inverse (or opposite) of the calendar month performance of the Index. The Fund does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective for a period of time different than a full calendar month.
Fees and Expenses of the Fund
This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold, and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the tables and examples below.

"Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses" include fees and expenses incurred indirectly by the Fund as a result of investments in other investment companies, including investments in money market funds. Because acquired fund fees and expenses are not borne directly by the Fund, they will not be reflected in the expense information in the Fund's financial statements and the information presented in the table will differ from that presented in the Fund's financial highlights included in the Fund's reports to shareholders.
(2)
Rafferty Asset Management, LLC (“Rafferty” or the “Adviser”), has entered into an Operating Expense Limitation Agreement with the Fund. Under the Operating Expense Limitation Agreement, Rafferty has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for Other Expenses through September 1, 2024, to the extent that the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses exceed 1.35% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses).
Any expense waiver or reimbursement is subject to recoupment by the Adviser within the three years after the expense was waived/reimbursed only if overall Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses fall below the lesser of this percentage limitation and any percentage limitation in place at the time the expense was waived/reimbursed. This agreement may be terminated or revised at any time with the consent of the Board of Trustees.
Example - This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio Turnover
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in Annual Fund Operating Expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 0% of the average value of its portfolio. However, this portfolio turnover is calculated without regard to cash instruments or derivatives.

If such instruments were included, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate would be significantly higher.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Index is designed to be comprised of stocks that are the 500 leading, large-cap U.S.-listed issuers. It selects constituents on the basis of market capitalization, financial viability of the company and the public float, liquidity and price of a company’s shares outstanding. The Index is a float-adjusted and market capitalization-weighted index.
As of October 31, 2022, the Index consisted of 503 constituents, which had a median total market capitalization of $28.8 billion, total market capitalizations ranging from $3.4 billion to $2.5 trillion and were concentrated in the information technology and healthcare sectors. The Index is rebalanced quarterly.
The components of the Index and the percentages represented by various sectors in the Index may change over time. The Fund will concentrate its investment in a particular industry or group of industries (i.e., hold 25% or more of its total assets in investments that provide inverse exposure to a particular industry or group of industries) to approximately the same extent as the Index is so concentrated.
The Fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of the Fund’s net assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in swap agreements, futures contracts, short positions or other financial instruments that provide inverse (opposite) or short calendar month exposure to the Index or to ETFs that track the Index, which, in combination, provider returns consistent with the Fund’s investment objective.
The Fund is designed to lose money when the Index rises, which is a result that is the opposite from traditional index tracking funds. In order to achieve its monthly inverse investment objective, the Fund may invest in a combination of financial instruments, such as swaps that provide short exposure to the Index or to an ETF that tracks the same Index or a substantially similar index, short securities of the Index or short an ETF that tracks the same Index or a substantially similar index, or short futures contracts that provide short exposure to the Index. The Fund may gain inverse leveraged exposure utilizing financial instruments that provide short exposure to a representative sample of the securities in the Index that have aggregate characteristics similar to those of the Index. The Fund invests in derivatives as a substitute for directly shorting securities in order to gain inverse leveraged exposure to the Index or its components. On a day-to-day basis, the Fund is expected to hold money market funds, deposit accounts with institutions with high quality credit ratings, and/or short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements. The Fund seeks to remain fully invested at all times consistent with its stated inverse leveraged investment objective.
Because a significant portion of the assets of the Fund may come from investors using “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies, the Fund may engage in frequent trading.
The Fund is “non-diversified,” meaning that a relatively high percentage of its assets may be invested in a limited number of issuers of securities. Additionally, the Fund’s investment objective is not a fundamental policy and may be changed by the Fund’s Board of Trustees without shareholder approval.
Principal Investment Risks
An investment in the Fund entails risk. The Fund may not achieve its inverse leveraged investment objective and there is a risk that you could lose all of your money invested in the Fund. The Fund is not a complete investment program. In addition, the Fund presents risks not traditionally associated with most mutual funds. It is important that investors closely review all of the risks listed below and understand them before making an investment in the Fund. While the realization of certain of the risks described below may benefit the Fund due to its inverse investment objective, such occurrences may introduce more volatility to the Fund, which could have a significant negative impact on Fund performance.
Effects of Compounding and Market Volatility Risk - The Fund has a monthly leveraged investment objective and the Fund’s performance for periods greater than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, will be the result of each month's returns compounded over the period, which is very likely to differ from -175% of the Index’s performance, before fees and expenses. Compounding affects all investments, but has a more significant impact on funds that are inverse leveraged and that rebalance monthly and becomes more pronounced as volatility and holding periods increase. The impact of compounding will impact each shareholder differently depending on the period of time an investment in the Fund is held and the volatility of the Index during the shareholder’s holding period of an investment in the Fund.
The chart below provides examples of how Index volatility and its return could affect the Fund’s performance. Fund performance for periods greater than one calendar month can be estimated given any set of assumptions for the following factors: a) Index volatility; b) Index performance; c) period of time; d) financing rates associated with inverse leveraged exposure; e) other Fund expenses; and f) dividends or interest paid with respect to securities of the Index. The chart below illustrates the impact of two principal factors – Index volatility and Index performance – on Fund performance. The chart shows estimated Fund returns for a number of combinations of Index volatility and Index performance over a one-year period. Performance shown in the chart assumes that: (i) no dividends were paid with respect to the securities included in the Index; (ii) there were no Fund expenses; and (iii) borrowing/lending rates (to obtain inverse leveraged exposure) of 0%. If Fund expenses and/or actual borrowing/lending rates were reflected, the estimated returns would be different than those shown. Particularly during periods of higher Index volatility, compounding will cause results for periods longer than a full calendar month to vary from -175% of the performance of the Index.

Direxion Funds Prospectus

As shown in the chart below, the Fund would be expected to lose 14% if the Index provided no return over a one year period during which the Index experienced annualized volatility of 25%. At higher ranges of volatility, there is a chance of a significant loss of value in the Fund, even if the Index’s return is flat. For instance, if the Index’s annualized volatility is 100%, the Fund would be expected to lose 91% of its value, even if the cumulative Index return for the year was 0%. Areas shaded red (or dark gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return less than -175% of the performance of the Index and those shaded green (or light gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return more than -175% of the performance of the Index. The table below is not a representation of the Fund’s actual returns, which may be significantly better or worse than the returns shown below as a result of any of the factors discussed above or in “Monthly Inverse Index Correlation Risk” below. The volatility of exchange traded securities or instruments that reflect the value of the Index may differ from the volatility of the Index.

The Index’s annualized historical volatility rate for the five year period ended September 30, 2022 was 21.29%. The Index’s highest volatility rate for any twelve-month period (October 1 to September 30) was 34.04% and volatility for a shorter period of time may have been substantially higher. The Index’s annualized performance for the five-year period ended September 30, 2022 was 9.23%. Historical Index volatility and performance are not indications of what the Index volatility and performance will be in the future. The volatility of ETFs or instruments that reflect the value of the Index, such as swaps, may differ from the volatility of the Index.
For information regarding the effects of volatility and Index performance on the long-term performance of the Fund, see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Techniques and Policies” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus, and “Negative Implications of Leveraged Monthly Goals In Volatile Markets” in the Fund’s Statement of Additional Information.
Leverage Risk The Fund obtains investment exposure in excess of its net assets by utilizing leverage and may lose more money in market conditions that are adverse to its investment objective than a fund that does not utilize
leverage. An investment in the Fund is exposed to the risk that a rise in the monthly performance of the Index will be magnified. This means that an investment in the Fund will be reduced by an amount equal to 1.75% for every 1% monthly rise in the Index, not including the costs of financing leverage and other operating expenses, which would further reduce its value. The Fund could theoretically lose an amount greater than its net assets in the event of an Index rise of more than 58%. This would result in a total loss of a shareholder’s investment in one day even if the Index subsequently moves in the opposite direction and eliminates all or a portion of its earlier daily change. A total loss may occur in a single day even if the Index does not lose all of its value. Leverage will also have the effect of magnifying any differences in the Fund’s correlation with the Index and may increase the volatility of the Fund.
Due to the limited availability of necessary investments or financial instruments, the Fund could, among other things, as a defensive measure, limit or suspend purchases or redemptions of Fund shares until the Adviser determines that the requisite exposure to the Index is obtainable. The Fund may also change its investment objective by, for example, seeking to track an alternative index, or lowering its leverage multiple or the Fund could close.
Derivatives Risk Derivatives are financial instruments that derive value from the underlying reference asset or assets, such as stocks, bonds, or funds (including ETFs), interest rates or indexes. Investing in derivatives may be considered aggressive and may expose the Fund to greater risks, and may result in larger losses or smaller gains, than investing directly in the reference assets underlying those derivatives, which may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective.
The Fund’s investments in derivatives may pose risks in addition to, and greater than, those associated with directly investing in securities or other investments, including risk related to the market, leverage, imperfect correlations with underlying investments or the Fund’s other portfolio holdings, higher price volatility, lack of availability, counterparty, liquidity, valuation and legal restrictions. The performance of a derivative may not track the performance of its reference asset for various reasons, including due to fees and other costs associated with it. Additionally, a swap on an ETF may not closely track the performance of the Index due to costs associated with trading ETFs, such as an ETF’s premium or discount and the difference between its market price and its net asset value. If the Index has a dramatic intraday increase or decrease that causes a material change in the Fund’s net assets, the terms of a swap agreement between the Fund and its counterparty may permit the counterparty to immediately close the swap agreement with the Fund. In that event, the Fund may not be able to enter into another swap agreement or invest in other derivatives to achieve its investment objective. This may occur even if the Index reverses all or a portion of its intraday movement by the end of the day. Because derivatives often require only a limited initial investment, the use of derivatives may expose the Fund to losses in excess of the amount initially invested. As a result, the value of an investment in the Fund may change quickly and without warning. Additionally, any
Direxion Funds Prospectus
10

financing, borrowing or other costs associated with using derivatives may also have the effect of lowering the Fund’s return.
Counterparty Risk A counterparty may be unwilling or unable to make timely payments to meet its contractual obligations or may fail to return holdings that are subject to the agreement with the counterparty. If the counterparty or its affiliate becomes insolvent, bankrupt or defaults on its payment obligations to the Fund, the value of an investment held by the Fund may decline. Additionally, if any collateral posted by the counterparty for the benefit of the Fund is insufficient or there are delays in the Fund’s ability to access such collateral, the Fund may not be able to achieve its inverse leveraged investment objective.
In addition, the Fund may enter into swap agreements with a limited number of counterparties, which may increase the Fund’s exposure to counterparty credit risk. Further, there is a risk that no suitable counterparties will be willing to enter into, or continue to enter into, transactions with the Fund and, as a result, the Fund may not be able to achieve its inverse leveraged investment objective or may decide to change its inverse leveraged investment objective.
Rebalancing Risk If for any reason the Fund is unable to rebalance all or a part of its portfolio, or if all or a portion of the portfolio is rebalanced incorrectly, the Fund’s investment exposure may not be consistent with its investment objective. In these instances, the Fund may have investment exposure to the Index that is significantly greater or significantly less than its stated multiple. The Fund may be more exposed to leverage risk than if it had been properly rebalanced and may not achieve its investment objective, leading to significantly greater losses or reduced gains.
Shorting Risk – A short position is a financial transaction in which an investor sells an asset that the investor does not own. In such a transaction, an investor’s short position appreciates when a reference asset falls in value. By contrast, the short position loses value when the reference asset’s value increases. Because historically most assets have risen in value over the long term, short positions are expected to depreciate in value. Accordingly, short positions may be riskier and more speculative than traditional investments. In addition, any income, dividends or payments by reference assets in which the Fund has a short position will impose expenses on the Fund that reduce returns.
The Fund may obtain short exposure through the use of derivatives, such as swap agreements or futures contracts. To the extent that the Fund obtains short exposure from derivatives, the Fund may be exposed to heightened volatility or limited liquidity related to the reference asset of the underlying short position, which will adversely impact the Fund’s ability to meet its investment objective or adversely impact its performance. If the Fund were to experience this volatility or decreased liquidity, the Fund may be required to obtain short exposure through alternative investment strategies that may be less desirable or more costly to implement. If the reference asset underlying the short position is thinly traded or has a limited market, there may be a lack of available securities or counterparties for the Fund
to enter into a short position or obtain short exposure from a derivative.
Intra-Calendar Month Investment Risk The Fund seeks calendar month inverse leveraged investment results. The exact exposure of an investment in the Fund intra-month will depend upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor. If the Index loses value, the Fund’s net assets will rise by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Conversely, if the Index gains value, the Fund’s net assets will decline by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Thus, an investor who purchases shares on a day other than the last business day of a calendar month will likely obtain more, or less, than -175% leveraged investment exposure to the Index, depending upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor.
If there is a significant intra-month market event and/or the securities of the Index experience a significant decrease, the Fund may not meet its investment objective or be able to rebalance its portfolio appropriately.
Monthly Inverse Index Correlation Risk There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a high degree of monthly inverse leveraged correlation to the Index. A number of factors may adversely affect the Fund’s inverse correlation with the Index, including fees, expenses, transaction costs, financing costs related to the use of derivatives, use of an ETF as a reference asset for derivative instruments, income items, valuation methodology, accounting standards, significant purchase and redemption activity by Fund shareholders and disruptions or illiquidity in the markets for the securities or derivatives held by the Fund.
In order to achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index, the Fund seeks to rebalance its portfolio on a monthly basis to keep exposure consistent with its inverse leveraged investment objective. Being materially over- or under-exposed to the Index may prevent the Fund from achieving a high degree of correlation with the Index. Market disruptions, regulatory restrictions or extreme volatility will also adversely affect the Fund’s ability to adjust exposure to the required levels. The target amount of portfolio exposure is impacted by the Index’s movement, thus it is unlikely the Fund will have perfect exposure (-175%) to the Index on the rebalance date and the likelihood of the Fund being materially over- or under-exposed is higher on days when the Index experiences volatility near the close of the trading day.
The Fund may not have inverse exposure to all securities in the Index, or its weighting of inverse exposure to such stocks or industries may be different from that of the Index. In addition, the Fund may invest in, or have exposure to, financial instruments not included in the Index. The Fund may also take, or refrain from taking, certain positions in order to improve tax efficiency or comply with regulatory restriction, either of which may negatively impact the Fund’s correlation with the Index. The Fund may be subject to large movements of assets into and out of the Fund, potentially resulting in the Fund being over- or under-exposed to the Index. Activities surrounding Index reconstitutions and other Index repositioning events may hinder the Fund’s ability
11
Direxion Funds Prospectus

to meet its calendar month inverse leveraged investment objective.
Market Risk The Fund’s investments are subject to changes in general economic conditions, general market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investment in securities markets. Investment markets can be volatile and prices of investments can change substantially due to various factors including, but not limited to, economic growth or recession, changes in interest rates, changes in the actual or perceived creditworthiness of issuers, general market liquidity, exchange trading suspensions and closures, and public health risks. The Fund is subject to the risk that geopolitical events will disrupt the securities, swap agreements or futures contract markets and adversely affect global economies, markets and exchanges. Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, natural disasters, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, conflicts and social unrest or other events could have a significant impact on the Fund, its investments, and the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective.
Healthcare Sector Risk The profitability of companies in the healthcare sector may be affected by extensive, costly and uncertain government regulation, restrictions on government reimbursement for medical expenses, rising costs of medical products and services, pricing pressure, changes in the demand for medical products and services, an increased emphasis on outpatient services, limited product lines, industry innovation and/or consolidation, changes in technologies and other market developments. Many healthcare companies are heavily dependent on patent protection, which may be time consuming and costly. The expiration of patents may adversely affect the profitability of these companies. Many healthcare companies are subject to extensive litigation based on product liability and similar claims. Healthcare companies are subject to competitive forces that may make it difficult to raise prices and, in fact, may result in price discounting. Many new products in the healthcare sector require significant research and development and may be subject to regulatory approvals. The process of obtaining such approvals may be long and costly with no guarantee that any product will come to market.
Information Technology Sector Risk The value of stocks of information technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology is particularly vulnerable to rapid changes in technology product cycles, rapid product obsolescence, government regulation, and competition, both domestically and internationally, including competition from competitors with lower production costs. In addition, many information technology companies have limited product lines, markets, financial resources or personnel. The prices of information technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology, especially those of smaller, less-seasoned companies, tend to be more volatile and less liquid than the overall market. Information technology companies are heavily dependent on patent and intellectual property rights, the loss or impairment of which may adversely affect profitability. Additionally, companies in the information technology sector may face dramatic and often unpredictable
changes in growth rates and competition for the services of qualified personnel.
Large-Capitalization Company Risk Large-capitalization companies may be less able to adapt to changing market conditions or to respond quickly to competitive challenges or to changes in business, product, financial, or market conditions and may not be able to maintain growth at rates that may be achieved by well-managed smaller and mid-size companies, which may affect the companies’ returns.
Mid-Capitalization Company Risk - Mid-capitalization companies often have narrower markets for their goods and/or services, more limited product lines, services, markets, managerial and financial resources, less stable earnings, or are dependent on a small management group. In addition, because these stocks are not well known to the investing public, do not have significant institutional ownership and are followed by relatively few security analysts, there will normally be less publicly available information concerning these securities compared to what is available for the securities of larger companies. As a result, the price of mid-capitalization companies can be more volatile and they may be less liquid than large-capitalization companies, which could increase the volatility of the Fund’s portfolio.
Early Close/Trading Halt Risk An exchange or market may close or issue trading halts on specific securities of financial instruments or restrict the ability to buy or sell certain portfolio securities or financial instruments, which may result in the Fund being unable to buy or sell certain securities or financial instruments. In such circumstances, the Fund may be unable to accurately price its investments, may incur significant tracking differences with its Index, may incur substantial losses and may limit or stop purchases of the Fund.
Equity Securities Risk Publicly issued equity securities, including common stocks, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time. Fluctuations in the value of equity securities in which the Fund invests, and/or has exposure to, will cause the net asset value of the Fund to fluctuate.
Market Timing Activity Risk Rafferty expects a significant portion of the assets of the Fund to come from professional money managers and investors who use the Fund as part of “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies. These strategies often call for frequent trading, which may lead to large shareholder transactions into and out of the Fund. These large movements of assets may lead to increased portfolio turnover, higher transaction costs and the possibility of increased net realized capital gains, including net short-term capital gains. Additionally, these large movement of assets may have a negative impact on the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective or maintain a consistent level of operating expenses. In certain circumstances, the Fund’s expense ratio may vary from current estimates or the historical ratio disclosed in this Prospectus.
Money Market Instrument Risk The Fund may use a variety of money market instruments for cash management purposes, including money market funds, depositary accounts and repurchase agreements. Money market funds may be subject to credit risk with respect to the debt instruments
Direxion Funds Prospectus
12

in which they invest. Depository accounts may be subject to credit risk with respect to the financial institution in which the depository account is held. Repurchase agreements may be subject to market and credit risk related to the collateral securing the repurchase agreement. Money market instruments may lose money.
Non-Diversification Risk The Fund is non-diversified, which means it invests a high percentage of its assets in a limited number of securities. Additionally, the Fund may invest a relatively high percentage of its assets in swap agreements with a single counterparty or a few counterparties. This may result in the Fund experiencing increased volatility and its net asset value and total return may fluctuate more or fall greater in times of weaker markets than a diversified fund.
Fund Performance
The following performance information provides some indication of the risks of investing in the Fund by demonstrating how its returns have varied from calendar year to calendar year. The bar chart shows changes in the Fund’s performance from calendar year to calendar year. The table shows how the Fund’s average annual returns for the one-year, five-year and ten-year periods compare with those of one or more broad-based market indexes for the same periods. The Fund’s past performance, before and after taxes, is not necessarily an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future. Updated performance is available on the Fund’s website at www.direxion.com/mutual-funds?producttab=performance or by calling the Fund toll-free at (800) 851-0511.
The performance noted below, and prior to August 1, 2022, reflects the Fund’s previous monthly inverse leveraged investment objective, before fees and expenses, of -200% of the Index.

After-tax returns are calculated using the historically highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. Actual after-tax returns depend on an investor’s tax situation and may differ from those shown, and after-tax returns are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts. In addition, the "Return After Taxes on Distributions and Sale of Fund Shares" is higher because the calculation recognizes a capital loss upon the redemption of Fund shares and assumes the investor received the benefit of a tax deduction.
Annual returns are required to be shown and should not be interpreted as suggesting that the Fund should or should not be held for long periods of time.

Direxion Monthly NASDAQ-100® Bull 1.75X Fund
Important Information Regarding the Fund
The Direxion Monthly NASDAQ-100® Bull 1.75X Fund (formerly Direxion Monthly NASDAQ-100® Bull 2X Fund) (the “Fund”) seeks calendar month leveraged (1.75X) investment results and is very different from most other mutual funds. As a result, the Fund may be riskier than alternatives that do not use leverage because the Fund’s objective is to magnify the monthly performance of the NASDAQ-100® Index (the "Index"). The return for investors that invest for periods longer or shorter than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, should not be expected to be 175% of the performance of the Index for the period. The return of the Fund for a period longer than a full calendar month will be the result of each full calendar month’s compounded return over the period, which will very likely differ from 175% of the return of the Index for that period. Longer holding periods, higher volatility of the Index and leverage increase the impact of compounding on an investor’s returns. During periods of higher Index volatility, the volatility of the Index may affect the Fund’s return as much as, or more than, the return of the Index.
The Fund is not suitable for all investors. The Fund is designed to be utilized only by knowledgeable investors who understand the potential consequences of seeking calendar month leveraged (1.75X) investment results, understand the risks associated with the use of leverage and are willing to monitor their portfolios frequently. The Fund is not intended to be used by, and is not appropriate for, investors who do not intend to actively monitor and manage their portfolios. For periods longer than a calendar month, the Fund will lose money if the Index’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Fund will lose money even if the Index’s performance increases. An investor could lose the full principal value of his/her investment within a calendar month if the Index loses more than 58% in one month.
Investment Objective
The Fund seeks monthly investment results, before fees and expenses, of 175% of the calendar month performance of the Index. The Fund does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective for a period of time different than a full calendar month.
Fees and Expenses of the Fund
This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold, and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the tables and examples below.

"Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses" include fees and expenses incurred indirectly by the Fund as a result of investments in other investment companies, including investments in money market funds. Because acquired fund fees and expenses are not borne directly by the Fund, they will not be reflected in the expense information in the Fund's financial statements and the information presented in the table will differ from that presented in the Fund's financial highlights included in the Fund's reports to shareholders.
(2)
Rafferty Asset Management, LLC (“Rafferty” or the “Adviser”), has entered into an Operating Expense Limitation Agreement with the Fund. Under the Operating Expense Limitation Agreement, Rafferty has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for Other Expenses through September 1, 2024, to the extent that the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses exceed 1.35% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses).
Any expense waiver or reimbursement is subject to recoupment by the Adviser within the three years after the expense was waived/reimbursed only if overall Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses fall below the lesser of this percentage limitation and any percentage limitation in place at the time the expense was waived/reimbursed. This agreement may be terminated or revised at any time with the consent of the Board of Trustees.
Example - This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio Turnover
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in Annual Fund Operating Expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 0% of the average value of its portfolio. However, this portfolio turnover is calculated without regard to cash instruments or derivatives.
15
Direxion Funds Prospectus

If such instruments were included, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate would be significantly higher.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Index is a modified market capitalization-weighted index and includes 100 of the largest domestic and international non-financial companies listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market® based on market capitalization. The Index reflects companies across major industry groups including computer hardware and software, communication services, retail/wholesale trade and biotechnology. It does not contain securities of financial companies or investment companies. Each security must have been traded for at least three full months and have a minimum three-month average daily trading volume of 200,000 shares. The Index is reviewed on an annual basis in December.
As of October 31, 2022, the Index consisted of 102 securities and had an average market capitalization of $134.5 billion, median market capitalization of $50.4 billion, total market capitalizations ranging from $8.9 billion to $2.4 trillion and were concentrated in the information technology, consumer discretionary, and communication services sectors.
The components of the Index and the percentages represented by various sectors in the Index may change over time. The Fund will concentrate its investment in a particular industry or group of industries (i.e., hold 25% or more of its total assets in the stocks of a particular industry or group of industries) to approximately the same extent as the Index is so concentrated.
The Fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in securities of the Index, exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") that track the Index and other financial instruments that provide monthly leveraged exposure to the Index or to ETFs that track the Index, which, in combination, provide returns consistent with the Fund’s investment objective. The financial instruments in which the Fund most commonly invests are swap contracts which are intended to produce economically leveraged investment results.
The Fund may invest in the securities of the Index, an ETF that tracks the Index, or utilize derivatives such as swaps on the Index, swaps on an ETF that tracks the Index or a substantially similar index as the Fund, or futures contracts to obtain leveraged exposure to the securities or a representative sample of the securities in the Index that have aggregate characteristics similar to those of the Index. On a day-to-day basis, the Fund is expected to hold money market funds, deposit accounts with institutions with high quality credit ratings, and/or short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements. The Fund seeks to remain fully invested at all times consistent with its stated investment objective.
Because a significant portion of the assets of the Fund may come from investors using “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies, the Fund may engage in frequent trading.
The Fund is “non-diversified,” meaning that a relatively high percentage of its assets may be invested in a limited number of issuers of securities. Additionally, the Fund’s investment objective is not a fundamental policy and may be changed by the Fund’s Board of Trustees without shareholder approval.
Principal Investment Risks
An investment in the Fund entails risk. The Fund may not achieve its leveraged investment objective and there is a risk that you could lose all of your money invested in the Fund. The Fund is not a complete investment program. In addition, the Fund presents risks not traditionally associated with most mutual funds. It is important that investors closely review all of the risks listed below and understand them before making an investment in the Fund.
Effects of Compounding and Market Volatility Risk - The Fund has a monthly leveraged investment objective and the Fund’s performance for periods greater than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, will be the result of each month's returns compounded over the period, which is very likely to differ from 175% of the Index’s performance, before fees and expenses. Compounding affects all investments, but has a more significant impact on funds that are leveraged and that rebalance monthly and becomes more pronounced as volatility and holding periods increase. The impact of compounding will impact each shareholder differently depending on the period of time an investment in the Fund is held and the volatility of the Index during the shareholder’s holding period of an investment in the Fund.
The chart below provides examples of how Index volatility and its return could affect the Fund’s performance. Fund performance for periods greater than one calendar month can be estimated given any set of assumptions for the following factors: a) Index volatility; b) Index performance; c) period of time; d) financing rates associated with leveraged exposure; e) other Fund expenses; and f) dividends or interest paid with respect to securities of the Index. The chart below illustrates the impact of two principal factors – Index volatility and Index performance – on Fund performance. The chart shows estimated Fund returns for a number of combinations of Index volatility and Index performance over a one-year period. Performance shown in the chart assumes that: (i) no dividends were paid with respect to the securities included in the Index; (ii) there were no Fund expenses; and (iii) borrowing/lending rates of 0%. If Fund expenses and/or actual borrowing/lending rates were reflected, the estimated returns would be different than those shown. Particularly during periods of higher Index volatility, compounding will cause results for periods longer than a full calendar month to vary from 175% of the performance of the Index.
As shown in the chart below, the Fund would be expected to lose 4% if the Index provided no return over a one year period during which the Index experienced annualized volatility of 25%. At higher ranges of volatility, there is a chance of a significant loss of value in the Fund, even if the Index’s return is flat. For instance, if the Index’s annualized volatility is 100%, the Fund would be expected to lose 48.1%

of its value, even if the cumulative Index return for the year was 0%. Areas shaded red (or dark gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return less than 175% of the performance of the Index and those shaded green (or light gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return more than 175% of the performance of the Index. The table below is not a representation of the Fund’s actual returns, which may be significantly better or worse than the returns shown below as a result of any of the factors discussed above or in “Monthly Index Correlation Risk” below. The volatility of exchange traded securities or instruments that reflect the value of the Index may differ from the volatility of the Index.

The Index’s annualized historical volatility rate for the five year period ended September 30, 2022 was 25.71%. The Index’s highest volatility rate for any twelve-month period (October 1 to September 30) was 35.27% and volatility for a shorter period of time may have been substantially higher. The Index’s annualized performance for the five-year period ended September 30, 2022 was 13.94%. Historical Index volatility and performance are not indications of what the Index volatility and performance will be in the future. The volatility of ETFs or instruments that reflect the value of the Index, such as swaps, may differ from the volatility of the Index.
For information regarding the effects of volatility and Index performance on the long-term performance of the Fund, see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Techniques and Policies” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus, and “Negative Implications of Leveraged Monthly Goals In Volatile Markets” in the Fund’s Statement of Additional Information.
Leverage Risk The Fund obtains investment exposure in excess of its net assets by utilizing leverage and may lose more money in market conditions that are adverse to its investment objective than a fund that does not utilize leverage. An investment in the Fund is exposed to the risk that a decline in the monthly performance of the Index will be magnified. This means that an investment in the Fund will be reduced by an amount equal to 1.75% for every 1% monthly decline in the Index, not including the costs of financing leverage and other operating expenses, which would further reduce its value. The Fund could theoretically
lose an amount greater than its net assets in the event of an Index decline of more than 58%. This would result in a total loss of a shareholder’s investment in one day even if the Index subsequently moves in the opposite direction and eliminates all or a portion of its earlier daily change. A total loss may occur in a single day even if the Index does not lose all of its value. Leverage will also have the effect of magnifying any differences in the Fund’s correlation with the Index and may increase the volatility of the Fund.
Due to the limited availability of necessary investments or financial instruments, the Fund could, among other things, as a defensive measure, limit or suspend purchases or redemptions of Fund shares until the Adviser determines that the requisite exposure to the Index is obtainable. The Fund may also change its investment objective by, for example, seeking to track an alternative index, or lowering its leverage multiple or the Fund could close.
Derivatives Risk Derivatives are financial instruments that derive value from the underlying reference asset or assets, such as stocks, bonds, or funds (including ETFs), interest rates or indexes. Investing in derivatives may be considered aggressive and may expose the Fund to greater risks, and may result in larger losses or smaller gains, than investing directly in the reference assets underlying those derivatives, which may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective.
The Fund’s investments in derivatives may pose risks in addition to, and greater than, those associated with directly investing in securities or other investments, including risk related to the market, leverage, imperfect correlations with underlying investments or the Fund’s other portfolio holdings, higher price volatility, lack of availability, counterparty, liquidity, valuation and legal restrictions. The performance of a derivative may not track the performance of its reference asset for various reasons, including due to fees and other costs associated with it. Additionally, a swap on an ETF may not closely track the performance of the Index due to costs associated with trading ETFs, such as an ETF’s premium or discount and the difference between its market price and its net asset value. If the Index has a dramatic intraday increase or decrease that causes a material change in the Fund’s net assets, the terms of a swap agreement between the Fund and its counterparty may permit the counterparty to immediately close the swap agreement with the Fund. In that event, the Fund may not be able to enter into another swap agreement or invest in other derivatives to achieve its investment objective. This may occur even if the Index reverses all or a portion of its intraday movement by the end of the day. Because derivatives often require only a limited initial investment, the use of derivatives may expose the Fund to losses in excess of the amount initially invested. As a result, the value of an investment in the Fund may change quickly and without warning. Additionally, any financing, borrowing or other costs associated with using derivatives may also have the effect of lowering the Fund’s return.
Counterparty Risk A counterparty may be unwilling or unable to make timely payments to meet its contractual obligations or may fail to return holdings that are subject
17
Direxion Funds Prospectus

to the agreement with the counterparty. If the counterparty or its affiliate becomes insolvent, bankrupt or defaults on its payment obligations to the Fund, the value of an investment held by the Fund may decline. Additionally, if any collateral posted by the counterparty for the benefit of the Fund is insufficient or there are delays in the Fund’s ability to access such collateral, the Fund may not be able to achieve its leveraged investment objective.
In addition, the Fund may enter into swap agreements with a limited number of counterparties, which may increase the Fund’s exposure to counterparty credit risk. Further, there is a risk that no suitable counterparties will be willing to enter into, or continue to enter into, transactions with the Fund and, as a result, the Fund may not be able to achieve its leveraged investment objective or may decide to change its leveraged investment objective.
Rebalancing Risk If for any reason the Fund is unable to rebalance all or a part of its portfolio, or if all or a portion of the portfolio is rebalanced incorrectly, the Fund’s investment exposure may not be consistent with its investment objective. In these instances, the Fund may have investment exposure to the Index that is significantly greater or significantly less than its stated multiple. The Fund may be more exposed to leverage risk than if it had been properly rebalanced and may not achieve its investment objective, leading to significantly greater losses or reduced gains.
Intra-Calendar Month Investment Risk The Fund seeks calendar month leveraged investment results. The exact exposure of an investment in the Fund intra-month will depend upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor. If the Index gains value, the Fund’s net assets will rise by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Conversely, if the Index loses value, the Fund’s net assets will decline by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Thus, an investor who purchases shares on a day other than the last business day of a calendar month will likely obtain more, or less, than 175% leveraged investment exposure to the Index, depending upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor.
If there is a significant intra-month market event and/or the securities of the Index experience a significant decrease, the Fund may not meet its investment objective or be able to rebalance its portfolio appropriately.
Monthly Index Correlation Risk There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve a high degree of correlation with its monthly leveraged investment objective relative to the Index. A number of factors may adversely affect the Fund’s correlation with the Index, including fees, expenses, transaction costs, financing costs related to the use of derivatives, investments in ETFs, directly or indirectly as a reference asset for derivative instruments, income items, valuation methodology, accounting standards, significant purchase and redemption activity by Fund shareholders and illiquidity in the markets for the securities or derivatives held by the Fund. Market disruptions, regulatory restrictions or extreme volatility will also adversely affect the Fund’s ability to adjust exposure to the required levels.
Due to the Index including instruments that trade on a different market than the Fund, the Fund's return may vary from a multiple of the performance of the Index because different markets may close before the New York Stock Exchange opens or may not be open for business on the same calendar days as the Fund. Additionally, due to differences in trading hours, and because the Index may be calculated using prices obtained at times other than the Fund's net asset value calculation time, the Fund's performance may not correlate the Index.
In order to achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index, the Fund seeks to rebalance its portfolio on a monthly basis to keep exposure consistent with its leveraged investment objective. Being materially over- or under-exposed to the Index may prevent the Fund from achieving a high degree of correlation with the Index. The target amount of portfolio exposure is impacted by the Index’s movement, thus it is unlikely the Fund will have perfect exposure (175%) to the Index on the rebalance date and the likelihood of the Fund being materially over- or under-exposed is higher on days when the Index experiences volatility near the close of the trading day.
The Fund may not have investment exposure to all securities in the Index, or its weighting of investment exposure to such stocks or industries may be different from that of the Index. In addition, the Fund may invest in, or have exposure to, securities or financial instruments not included in the Index. The Fund may also take or refrain from taking certain positions in order to improve tax efficiency or comply with regulatory restriction, either of which may negatively impact the Fund’s correlation with the Index. The Fund may be subject to large movements of assets into and out of the Fund, potentially resulting in the Fund being over- or under-exposed to the Index. Activities surrounding Index reconstitutions and other Index repositioning events may hinder the Fund’s ability to meet its calendar month leveraged investment objective.
Other Investment Companies (including ETFs) Risk
The Fund may invest in another investment company, including an ETF, to pursue its investment objective. When investing in another investment company, including an ETF, the Fund becomes a shareholder of that investment company and as a result, Fund shareholders indirectly bear the Fund’s proportionate share of the fees and expenses of the other investment company, in addition to the fees and expenses of the Fund’s own operations. The Fund must rely on the other investment company to achieve its investment objective. Accordingly, if the other investment company fails to achieve its investment objective, the Fund’s performance will likely be adversely affected. To the extent that the Fund obtains exposure to another investment company, including an ETF, by entering into a derivative contract whose reference asset is the investment company, the Fund will not be a shareholder of the other investment company but will still be exposed to the risk that it may fail to achieve its investment objective and adversely impact the Fund. In addition, to the extent that the Fund invests in an investment company that is an ETF, it will be exposed to all of the risks associated with the ETF structure. Shares of ETFs are listed and traded on national stock exchanges, their shares may trade at a discount

or a premium to an ETF’s net asset value which may result in an ETF’s market price being more or less than the value of the index that the ETF tracks especially during periods of market volatility or disruption. There may also be additional trading costs due to an ETF’s bid-ask spread, which may adversely affect the Fund’s performance.
Market Risk The Fund’s investments are subject to changes in general economic conditions, general market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investment in securities markets. Investment markets can be volatile and prices of investments can change substantially due to various factors including, but not limited to, economic growth or recession, changes in interest rates, changes in the actual or perceived creditworthiness of issuers, general market liquidity, exchange trading suspensions and closures, and public health risks. The Fund is subject to the risk that geopolitical events will disrupt the securities, swap agreements or futures contract markets and adversely affect global economies, markets and exchanges. Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, natural disasters, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, conflicts and social unrest or other events could have a significant impact on the Fund, its investments, and the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective.
Liquidity Risk Holdings of the Fund, including derivatives, may be difficult to buy or sell or be illiquid, particularly during times of market turmoil. Illiquid securities may be difficult to value, especially in changing or volatile markets. If the Fund is forced to buy or sell an illiquid security or derivative instrument at an unfavorable time or price, the Fund may be adversely impacted. Certain market conditions or restrictions, such as market rules related to short sales, may prevent the Fund from limiting losses, realizing gains or achieving a high correlation with the index. There is no assurance that a security or derivative instrument that is deemed liquid when purchased will continue to be liquid. Market illiquidity may cause losses for the Fund. To the extent that a Fund's Index decreases, the Fund may be one of many market participants that are attempting to transact in the securities of the Index.
In certain cases, the market for certain securities in the Index and/or Fund may lack sufficient liquidity for all market participants' trades. Therefore, the Fund may have difficulty transacting in it and/or in correlated investments, such as swap contracts. Further, the Fund's transactions could exacerbate illiquidity and volatility in the price of the securities and correlated derivative instruments.
Communication Services Sector Risk The communication services sector may be dominated by a small number of companies which may lead to additional volatility in the sector. Communication services companies are particularly vulnerable to the potential obsolescence of products and services due to technological advances and the innovation of competitors. Communication services companies may also be affected by other competitive pressures, such as pricing competition, as well as research and development costs, substantial capital requirements, and government regulation. Fluctuating domestic and international demand, shifting demographics, and often unpredictable changes in consumer
demand can drastically affect a communication services company’s profitability. Compliance with governmental regulations, delays or failure to receive regulatory approvals, or the enactment of new regulatory requirements may negatively affect the business of telecommunication services companies. Certain companies in the communication services sector may be particular targets of network security breaches, hacking and potential theft of proprietary or consumer information, or disruptions in services, which would have a material adverse effect on their businesses.
Consumer Discretionary Sector Risk Because companies in the consumer discretionary sector manufacture products and provide discretionary services directly to the consumer, the success of these companies is tied closely to the performance of the overall domestic and international economy, including the functioning of the global supply chain, interest rates, competition and consumer confidence. Success depends heavily on disposable household income and consumer spending, and may be strongly affected by social trends and marketing campaigns. Also, companies in the consumer discretionary sector may be subject to severe competition, which may have an adverse impact on a company’s profitability. Changes in demographics and consumer tastes also can affect the demand for, and success of, consumer discretionary products in the marketplace.
Information Technology Sector Risk The value of stocks of information technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology is particularly vulnerable to rapid changes in technology product cycles, rapid product obsolescence, government regulation, and competition, both domestically and internationally, including competition from competitors with lower production costs. In addition, many information technology companies have limited product lines, markets, financial resources or personnel. The prices of information technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology, especially those of smaller, less-seasoned companies, tend to be more volatile and less liquid than the overall market. Information technology companies are heavily dependent on patent and intellectual property rights, the loss or impairment of which may adversely affect profitability. Additionally, companies in the information technology sector may face dramatic and often unpredictable changes in growth rates and competition for the services of qualified personnel.
Large-Capitalization Company Risk Large-capitalization companies may be less able to adapt to changing market conditions or to respond quickly to competitive challenges or to changes in business, product, financial, or market conditions and may not be able to maintain growth at rates that may be achieved by well-managed smaller and mid-size companies, which may affect the companies’ returns.
Depositary Receipt Risk To the extent the Fund invests in, and/or has exposure to, foreign companies, the Fund’s investment may be in the form of depositary receipts or other securities convertible into securities of foreign issuers including American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), European Depositary Receipts (“EDRs”), and Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”). Such investments continue to be subject to most
19
Direxion Funds Prospectus

of the risks associated with investing directly in foreign securities, including political and exchange rate risks.
Foreign Securities Risk Investing in, and/or having exposure to, foreign instruments may involve greater risks than investing in domestic instruments. As a result, the Fund’s returns and net asset value may be affected to a large degree by fluctuations in currency exchange rates, political, diplomatic or economic conditions and regulatory requirements in other countries. The laws and accounting, auditing, and financial reporting standards in foreign countries typically are not as strict as they are in the U.S., and there may be less public information available about foreign companies. Additionally, the Fund may be impacted by a limitation on foreign ownership of securities, the imposition of withholding or other taxes, restrictions on the repatriation of cash or other assets, higher transaction and custody costs, delays in the settlement of securities, difficulties in enforcing contractual obligations and lower levels of regulation in the securities markets.
Early Close/Trading Halt Risk An exchange or market may close or issue trading halts on specific securities of financial instruments or restrict the ability to buy or sell certain portfolio securities or financial instruments, which may result in the Fund being unable to buy or sell certain securities or financial instruments. In such circumstances, the Fund may be unable to accurately price its investments, may incur significant tracking differences with its Index, may incur substantial losses and may limit or stop purchases of the Fund.
Equity Securities Risk Publicly issued equity securities, including common stocks, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time. Fluctuations in the value of equity securities in which the Fund invests, and/or has exposure to, will cause the net asset value of the Fund to fluctuate.
Market Timing Activity Risk Rafferty expects a significant portion of the assets of the Fund to come from professional money managers and investors who use the Fund as part of “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies. These strategies often call for frequent trading, which may lead to large shareholder transactions into and out of the Fund. These large movements of assets may lead to increased portfolio turnover, higher transaction costs and the possibility of increased net realized capital gains, including net short-term capital gains. Additionally, these large movement of assets may have a negative impact on the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective or maintain a consistent level of operating expenses. In certain circumstances, the Fund’s expense ratio may vary from current estimates or the historical ratio disclosed in this Prospectus.
Money Market Instrument Risk The Fund may use a variety of money market instruments for cash management purposes, including money market funds, depositary accounts and repurchase agreements. Money market funds may be subject to credit risk with respect to the debt instruments in which they invest. Depository accounts may be subject to credit risk with respect to the financial institution in which the depository account is held. Repurchase agreements may be subject to market and credit risk related to the collateral
securing the repurchase agreement. Money market instruments may lose money.
Non-Diversification Risk The Fund is non-diversified, which means it invests a high percentage of its assets in a limited number of securities. Additionally, the Fund may invest a relatively high percentage of its assets in swap agreements with a single counterparty or a few counterparties. This may result in the Fund experiencing increased volatility and its net asset value and total return may fluctuate more or fall greater in times of weaker markets than a diversified fund.

Direxion Monthly Small Cap Bull 1.75X Fund
Important Information Regarding the Fund
The Direxion Monthly Small Cap Bull 1.75X Fund (formerly Direxion Monthly Small Cap Bull 2X Fund) (the “Fund”) seeks calendar month leveraged (1.75X) investment results and is very different from most other mutual funds. As a result, the Fund may be riskier than alternatives that do not use leverage because the Fund’s objective is to magnify the monthly performance of the Russell 2000® Index (the "Index"). The return for investors that invest for periods longer or shorter than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, should not be expected to be 175% of the performance of the Index for the period. The return of the Fund for a period longer than a full calendar month will be the result of each full calendar month’s compounded return over the period, which will very likely differ from 175% of the return of the Index for that period. Longer holding periods, higher volatility of the Index and leverage increase the impact of compounding on an investor’s returns. During periods of higher Index volatility, the volatility of the Index may affect the Fund’s return as much as, or more than, the return of the Index.
The Fund is not suitable for all investors. The Fund is designed to be utilized only by knowledgeable investors who understand the potential consequences of seeking calendar month leveraged (1.75X) investment results, understand the risks associated with the use of leverage and are willing to monitor their portfolios frequently. The Fund is not intended to be used by, and is not appropriate for, investors who do not intend to actively monitor and manage their portfolios. For periods longer than a calendar month, the Fund will lose money if the Index’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Fund will lose money even if the Index’s performance increases. An investor could lose the full principal value of his/her investment within a calendar month if the Index loses more than 58% in one month.
Investment Objective
The Fund seeks monthly investment results, before fees and expenses, of 175% of the calendar month performance of the Index. The Fund does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective for a period of time different than a full calendar month.
Fees and Expenses of the Fund
This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold, and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the tables and examples below.

"Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses" include fees and expenses incurred indirectly by the Fund as a result of investments in other investment companies, including investments in money market funds. Because acquired fund fees and expenses are not borne directly by the Fund, they will not be reflected in the expense information in the Fund's financial statements and the information presented in the table will differ from that presented in the Fund's financial highlights included in the Fund's reports to shareholders.
(2)
Rafferty Asset Management, LLC (“Rafferty” or the “Adviser”), has entered into an Operating Expense Limitation Agreement with the Fund. Under the Operating Expense Limitation Agreement, Rafferty has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for Other Expenses through September 1, 2024, to the extent that the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses exceed 1.35% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses).
Any expense waiver or reimbursement is subject to recoupment by the Adviser within the three years after the expense was waived/reimbursed only if overall Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses fall below the lesser of this percentage limitation and any percentage limitation in place at the time the expense was waived/reimbursed. This agreement may be terminated or revised at any time with the consent of the Board of Trustees.
Example - This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio Turnover
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in Annual Fund Operating Expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 33% of the average value of its portfolio. However, this portfolio turnover is calculated without regard to cash instruments or derivatives.
Direxion Funds Prospectus
22

If such instruments were included, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate would be significantly higher.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Index measures the performance of approximately 2,000 small-capitalization companies in the Russell 3000® Index, based on a combination of their market capitalization and current index membership.
As of October 31, 2022, the Index consisted of 1,958 holdings, which had an average market capitalization of $2.8 billion, total market capitalizations ranging from $16.9 million to $13 billion and were concentrated in the healthcare, financials, and industrials sectors.
The components of the Index and the percentages represented by various sectors in the Index may change over time. The Fund will concentrate its investment in a particular industry or group of industries (i.e., hold 25% or more of its total assets in the stocks of a particular industry or group of industries) to approximately the same extent as the Index is so concentrated.
The Fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in securities of the Index, exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") that track the Index and other financial instruments that provide monthly leveraged exposure to the Index or to ETFs that track the Index, which, in combination, provide returns consistent with the Fund’s investment objective. The financial instruments in which the Fund most commonly invests are swap contracts which are intended to produce economically leveraged investment results.
The Fund may invest in the securities of the Index, an ETF that tracks the Index, or utilize derivatives such as swaps on the Index, swaps on an ETF that tracks the Index or a substantially similar index as the Fund, or futures contracts to obtain leveraged exposure to the securities or a representative sample of the securities in the Index that have aggregate characteristics similar to those of the Index. On a day-to-day basis, the Fund is expected to hold money market funds, deposit accounts with institutions with high quality credit ratings, and/or short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements. The Fund seeks to remain fully invested at all times consistent with its stated investment objective.
Because a significant portion of the assets of the Fund may come from investors using “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies, the Fund may engage in frequent trading.
The Fund is “non-diversified,” meaning that a relatively high percentage of its assets may be invested in a limited number of issuers of securities. Additionally, the Fund’s investment objective is not a fundamental policy and may be changed by the Fund’s Board of Trustees without shareholder approval.
Principal Investment Risks
An investment in the Fund entails risk. The Fund may not achieve its leveraged investment objective and there is a risk that you could lose all of your money invested in the
Fund. The Fund is not a complete investment program. In addition, the Fund presents risks not traditionally associated with most mutual funds. It is important that investors closely review all of the risks listed below and understand them before making an investment in the Fund.
Effects of Compounding and Market Volatility Risk - The Fund has a monthly leveraged investment objective and the Fund’s performance for periods greater than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, will be the result of each month's returns compounded over the period, which is very likely to differ from 175% of the Index’s performance, before fees and expenses. Compounding affects all investments, but has a more significant impact on funds that are leveraged and that rebalance monthly and becomes more pronounced as volatility and holding periods increase. The impact of compounding will impact each shareholder differently depending on the period of time an investment in the Fund is held and the volatility of the Index during the shareholder’s holding period of an investment in the Fund.
The chart below provides examples of how Index volatility and its return could affect the Fund’s performance. Fund performance for periods greater than one calendar month can be estimated given any set of assumptions for the following factors: a) Index volatility; b) Index performance; c) period of time; d) financing rates associated with leveraged exposure; e) other Fund expenses; and f) dividends or interest paid with respect to securities of the Index. The chart below illustrates the impact of two principal factors – Index volatility and Index performance – on Fund performance. The chart shows estimated Fund returns for a number of combinations of Index volatility and Index performance over a one-year period. Performance shown in the chart assumes that: (i) no dividends were paid with respect to the securities included in the Index; (ii) there were no Fund expenses; and (iii) borrowing/lending rates of 0%. If Fund expenses and/or actual borrowing/lending rates were reflected, the estimated returns would be different than those shown. Particularly during periods of higher Index volatility, compounding will cause results for periods longer than a full calendar month to vary from 175% of the performance of the Index.
As shown in the chart below, the Fund would be expected to lose 4% if the Index provided no return over a one year period during which the Index experienced annualized volatility of 25%. At higher ranges of volatility, there is a chance of a significant loss of value in the Fund, even if the Index’s return is flat. For instance, if the Index’s annualized volatility is 100%, the Fund would be expected to lose 48.1% of its value, even if the cumulative Index return for the year was 0%. Areas shaded red (or dark gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return less than 175% of the performance of the Index and those shaded green (or light gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return more than 175% of the performance of the Index. The table below is not a representation of the Fund’s actual returns, which may be significantly better or worse than the returns shown below as a result of any of the factors discussed above or in “Monthly

The Index’s annualized historical volatility rate for the five year period ended September 30, 2022 was 26.65%. The Index’s highest volatility rate for any twelve-month period (October 1 to September 30) was 41.99% and volatility for a shorter period of time may have been substantially higher. The Index’s annualized performance for the five-year period ended September 30, 2022 was 3.55%. Historical Index volatility and performance are not indications of what the Index volatility and performance will be in the future. The volatility of ETFs or instruments that reflect the value of the Index, such as swaps, may differ from the volatility of the Index.
For information regarding the effects of volatility and Index performance on the long-term performance of the Fund, see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Techniques and Policies” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus, and “Negative Implications of Leveraged Monthly Goals In Volatile Markets” in the Fund’s Statement of Additional Information.
Leverage Risk The Fund obtains investment exposure in excess of its net assets by utilizing leverage and may lose more money in market conditions that are adverse to its investment objective than a fund that does not utilize leverage. An investment in the Fund is exposed to the risk that a decline in the monthly performance of the Index will be magnified. This means that an investment in the Fund will be reduced by an amount equal to 1.75% for every 1% monthly decline in the Index, not including the costs of financing leverage and other operating expenses, which would further reduce its value. The Fund could theoretically lose an amount greater than its net assets in the event of an Index decline of more than 58%. This would result in a total loss of a shareholder’s investment in one day even if the Index subsequently moves in the opposite direction and eliminates all or a portion of its earlier daily change. A total loss may occur in a single day even if the Index does not lose all of its value. Leverage will also have the effect of magnifying any differences in the Fund’s correlation with the Index and may increase the volatility of the Fund.
Due to the limited availability of necessary investments or financial instruments, the Fund could, among other things, as a defensive measure, limit or suspend purchases or redemptions of Fund shares until the Adviser determines that the requisite exposure to the Index is obtainable. The Fund may also change its investment objective by, for example, seeking to track an alternative index, or lowering its leverage multiple or the Fund could close.
Derivatives Risk Derivatives are financial instruments that derive value from the underlying reference asset or assets, such as stocks, bonds, or funds (including ETFs), interest rates or indexes. Investing in derivatives may be considered aggressive and may expose the Fund to greater risks, and may result in larger losses or smaller gains, than investing directly in the reference assets underlying those derivatives, which may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective.
The Fund’s investments in derivatives may pose risks in addition to, and greater than, those associated with directly investing in securities or other investments, including risk related to the market, leverage, imperfect correlations with underlying investments or the Fund’s other portfolio holdings, higher price volatility, lack of availability, counterparty, liquidity, valuation and legal restrictions. The performance of a derivative may not track the performance of its reference asset for various reasons, including due to fees and other costs associated with it. Additionally, a swap on an ETF may not closely track the performance of the Index due to costs associated with trading ETFs, such as an ETF’s premium or discount and the difference between its market price and its net asset value. If the Index has a dramatic intraday increase or decrease that causes a material change in the Fund’s net assets, the terms of a swap agreement between the Fund and its counterparty may permit the counterparty to immediately close the swap agreement with the Fund. In that event, the Fund may not be able to enter into another swap agreement or invest in other derivatives to achieve its investment objective. This may occur even if the Index reverses all or a portion of its intraday movement by the end of the day. Because derivatives often require only a limited initial investment, the use of derivatives may expose the Fund to losses in excess of the amount initially invested. As a result, the value of an investment in the Fund may change quickly and without warning. Additionally, any financing, borrowing or other costs associated with using derivatives may also have the effect of lowering the Fund’s return.
Counterparty Risk A counterparty may be unwilling or unable to make timely payments to meet its contractual obligations or may fail to return holdings that are subject to the agreement with the counterparty. If the counterparty or its affiliate becomes insolvent, bankrupt or defaults on its payment obligations to the Fund, the value of an investment held by the Fund may decline. Additionally, if any collateral posted by the counterparty for the benefit of the Fund is insufficient or there are delays in the Fund’s ability to access such collateral, the Fund may not be able to achieve its leveraged investment objective.

In addition, the Fund may enter into swap agreements with a limited number of counterparties, which may increase the Fund’s exposure to counterparty credit risk. Further, there is a risk that no suitable counterparties will be willing to enter into, or continue to enter into, transactions with the Fund and, as a result, the Fund may not be able to achieve its leveraged investment objective or may decide to change its leveraged investment objective.
Rebalancing Risk If for any reason the Fund is unable to rebalance all or a part of its portfolio, or if all or a portion of the portfolio is rebalanced incorrectly, the Fund’s investment exposure may not be consistent with its investment objective. In these instances, the Fund may have investment exposure to the Index that is significantly greater or significantly less than its stated multiple. The Fund may be more exposed to leverage risk than if it had been properly rebalanced and may not achieve its investment objective, leading to significantly greater losses or reduced gains.
Intra-Calendar Month Investment Risk The Fund seeks calendar month leveraged investment results. The exact exposure of an investment in the Fund intra-month will depend upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor. If the Index gains value, the Fund’s net assets will rise by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Conversely, if the Index loses value, the Fund’s net assets will decline by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Thus, an investor who purchases shares on a day other than the last business day of a calendar month will likely obtain more, or less, than 175% leveraged investment exposure to the Index, depending upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor.
If there is a significant intra-month market event and/or the securities of the Index experience a significant decrease, the Fund may not meet its investment objective or be able to rebalance its portfolio appropriately.
Monthly Index Correlation Risk There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve a high degree of correlation with its monthly leveraged investment objective relative to the Index. A number of factors may adversely affect the Fund’s correlation with the Index, including fees, expenses, transaction costs, financing costs related to the use of derivatives, investments in ETFs, directly or indirectly as a reference asset for derivative instruments, income items, valuation methodology, accounting standards, significant purchase and redemption activity by Fund shareholders and illiquidity in the markets for the securities or derivatives held by the Fund. Market disruptions, regulatory restrictions or extreme volatility will also adversely affect the Fund’s ability to adjust exposure to the required levels.
In order to achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index, the Fund seeks to rebalance its portfolio on a monthly basis to keep exposure consistent with its leveraged investment objective. Being materially over- or under-exposed to the Index may prevent the Fund from achieving a high degree of correlation with the Index. The target amount of portfolio exposure is impacted by the Index’s movement, thus it is unlikely the Fund will have perfect exposure (175%)
to the Index on the rebalance date and the likelihood of the Fund being materially over- or under-exposed is higher on days when the Index experiences volatility near the close of the trading day.
The Fund may not have investment exposure to all securities in the Index, or its weighting of investment exposure to such stocks or industries may be different from that of the Index. In addition, the Fund may invest in, or have exposure to, securities or financial instruments not included in the Index. The Fund may also take or refrain from taking certain positions in order to improve tax efficiency or comply with regulatory restriction, either of which may negatively impact the Fund’s correlation with the Index. The Fund may be subject to large movements of assets into and out of the Fund, potentially resulting in the Fund being over- or under-exposed to the Index. Activities surrounding Index reconstitutions and other Index repositioning events may hinder the Fund’s ability to meet its calendar month leveraged investment objective.
Other Investment Companies (including ETFs) Risk
The Fund may invest in another investment company, including an ETF, to pursue its investment objective. When investing in another investment company, including an ETF, the Fund becomes a shareholder of that investment company and as a result, Fund shareholders indirectly bear the Fund’s proportionate share of the fees and expenses of the other investment company, in addition to the fees and expenses of the Fund’s own operations. The Fund must rely on the other investment company to achieve its investment objective. Accordingly, if the other investment company fails to achieve its investment objective, the Fund’s performance will likely be adversely affected. To the extent that the Fund obtains exposure to another investment company, including an ETF, by entering into a derivative contract whose reference asset is the investment company, the Fund will not be a shareholder of the other investment company but will still be exposed to the risk that it may fail to achieve its investment objective and adversely impact the Fund. In addition, to the extent that the Fund invests in an investment company that is an ETF, it will be exposed to all of the risks associated with the ETF structure. Shares of ETFs are listed and traded on national stock exchanges, their shares may trade at a discount or a premium to an ETF’s net asset value which may result in an ETF’s market price being more or less than the value of the index that the ETF tracks especially during periods of market volatility or disruption. There may also be additional trading costs due to an ETF’s bid-ask spread, which may adversely affect the Fund’s performance.
Market Risk The Fund’s investments are subject to changes in general economic conditions, general market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investment in securities markets. Investment markets can be volatile and prices of investments can change substantially due to various factors including, but not limited to, economic growth or recession, changes in interest rates, changes in the actual or perceived creditworthiness of issuers, general market liquidity, exchange trading suspensions and closures, and public health risks. The Fund is subject to the risk that geopolitical events will disrupt the securities, swap agreements or futures contract markets and adversely affect global economies, markets
25
Direxion Funds Prospectus

and exchanges. Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, natural disasters, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, conflicts and social unrest or other events could have a significant impact on the Fund, its investments, and the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective.
Financials Sector Risk Performance of companies in the financials sector may be materially impacted by many factors, including but not limited to, government regulations, economic conditions, credit rating downgrades, changes in interest rates and decreased liquidity in credit markets. Profitability of these companies is largely dependent on the availability and cost of capital and can fluctuate significantly when interest rates change. Credit losses resulting from financial difficulties of borrowers also can negatively impact the sector. These companies are also subject to substantial government regulation and intervention, which may adversely impact the scope of their activities, the prices they can charge, the amount of capital they must maintain, and potentially, their size. Government regulation may change frequently and may have significant adverse consequences for financial companies, including effects that are not intended by such regulation. The impact of more stringent capital requirements, or recent or future regulation in various countries on any individual financial company or of the financials sector as a whole, cannot be predicted. The financials sector is also a target for cyber attacks and may experience technology malfunctions and disruptions, which have occurred more frequently in recent years.
Healthcare Sector Risk The profitability of companies in the healthcare sector may be affected by extensive, costly and uncertain government regulation, restrictions on government reimbursement for medical expenses, rising costs of medical products and services, pricing pressure, changes in the demand for medical products and services, an increased emphasis on outpatient services, limited product lines, industry innovation and/or consolidation, changes in technologies and other market developments. Many healthcare companies are heavily dependent on patent protection, which may be time consuming and costly. The expiration of patents may adversely affect the profitability of these companies. Many healthcare companies are subject to extensive litigation based on product liability and similar claims. Healthcare companies are subject to competitive forces that may make it difficult to raise prices and, in fact, may result in price discounting. Many new products in the healthcare sector require significant research and development and may be subject to regulatory approvals. The process of obtaining such approvals may be long and costly with no guarantee that any product will come to market.
Industrials Sector Risk Stock prices of issuers in the industrials sector are affected by supply and demand both for their specific product or service and for industrials sector products in general. Government regulation, world events including trade disputes, exchange rates and economic conditions, technological developments and liabilities for environmental damage and general civil liabilities will also affect the performance of investment in such issuers. Aerospace and defense companies, a component of the
industrials sector, can be significantly affected by government spending policies because companies involved in this industry rely to a significant extent on U.S. and other government demand for their products and services. Thus, the financial condition of, and investor interest in, aerospace and defense companies are heavily influenced by government defense spending policies which are typically under pressure from efforts to control government spending budgets. Transportation companies, another component of the industrials sector, are subject to cyclical performance and therefore investment in such companies may experience occasional sharp price movements which may result from changes in the economy, fuel prices, labor agreements and insurance costs. The industrials sector may also be adversely affected by changes or trends in commodity prices, which may be influenced by unpredictable factors. Issuers with high carbon intensity or high switching costs associated with the transition to low carbon alternatives may be more impacted by climate transition risks.
Micro-Capitalization Company Risk - Micro-capitalization companies often have limited product lines, narrower markets for their goods and/or services and more limited managerial and financial resources than larger, more established companies, including companies which are considered small- or mid-capitalization. As a result, their performance can be more volatile and they face greater risk of business failure, which could increase the volatility of the Fund’s portfolio.
Small- and/or Mid-Capitalization Company Risk
Small- and mid-capitalization companies often have narrower markets for their goods and/or services, less stable earnings, and more limited managerial and financial resources and often have limited product lines, services, markets, financial resources or are dependent on a small management group. Because these stocks are not well-known to the investing public, do not have significant institutional ownership and are followed by relatively few security analysts, there will normally be less publicly available information concerning these securities compared to what is available for the securities of larger companies. Adverse publicity and investor perceptions, whether or not based on fundamental analysis, can decrease the value and liquidity of securities held by the Fund resulting in more volatile performance. These companies may face greater risk of business failure, which could increase the volatility of the Fund’s portfolio.
Early Close/Trading Halt Risk An exchange or market may close or issue trading halts on specific securities of financial instruments or restrict the ability to buy or sell certain portfolio securities or financial instruments, which may result in the Fund being unable to buy or sell certain securities or financial instruments. In such circumstances, the Fund may be unable to accurately price its investments, may incur significant tracking differences with its Index, may incur substantial losses and may limit or stop purchases of the Fund.
Equity Securities Risk Publicly issued equity securities, including common stocks, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time. Fluctuations in the value of equity securities in which the Fund invests, and/or has exposure to, will cause the net asset value of the Fund to fluctuate.
Direxion Funds Prospectus
26

Market Timing Activity Risk Rafferty expects a significant portion of the assets of the Fund to come from professional money managers and investors who use the Fund as part of “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies. These strategies often call for frequent trading, which may lead to large shareholder transactions into and out of the Fund. These large movements of assets may lead to increased portfolio turnover, higher transaction costs and the possibility of increased net realized capital gains, including net short-term capital gains. Additionally, these large movement of assets may have a negative impact on the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective or maintain a consistent level of operating expenses. In certain circumstances, the Fund’s expense ratio may vary from current estimates or the historical ratio disclosed in this Prospectus.
Money Market Instrument Risk The Fund may use a variety of money market instruments for cash management purposes, including money market funds, depositary accounts and repurchase agreements. Money market funds may be subject to credit risk with respect to the debt instruments in which they invest. Depository accounts may be subject to credit risk with respect to the financial institution in which the depository account is held. Repurchase agreements may be subject to market and credit risk related to the collateral securing the repurchase agreement. Money market instruments may lose money.
Non-Diversification Risk The Fund is non-diversified, which means it invests a high percentage of its assets in a limited number of securities. Additionally, the Fund may invest a relatively high percentage of its assets in swap agreements with a single counterparty or a few counterparties. This may result in the Fund experiencing increased volatility and its net asset value and total return may fluctuate more or fall greater in times of weaker markets than a diversified fund.

Direxion Monthly Small Cap Bear 1.75X Fund
Important Information Regarding the Fund
The Direxion Monthly Small Cap Bear 1.75X Fund (formerly Direxion Monthly Small Cap Bear 2X Fund) (the “Fund”) seeks calendar month inverse leveraged (-1.75X) investment results and is very different from most other mutual funds. As a result, the Fund may be riskier than alternatives that do not use leverage because the Fund’s objective is to magnify the monthly inverse performance of the Russell 2000® Index (the "Index"). The return for investors that invest for periods longer or shorter than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, should not be expected to be -175% of the performance of the Index for the period. The return of the Fund for a period longer than a full calendar month will be the result of each full calendar month’s compounded return over the period, which will very likely differ from -175% of the return of the Index for that period. Longer holding periods, higher volatility of the Index and leverage increase the impact of compounding on an investor’s returns. During periods of higher Index volatility, the volatility of the Index may affect the Fund’s return as much as, or more than, the return of the Index.
The Fund is not suitable for all investors. The Fund is designed to be utilized only by knowledgeable investors who understand the potential consequences of seeking calendar month inverse leveraged (-1.75X) investment results, understand the risks associated with the use of leverage and shorting and are willing to monitor their portfolios frequently. The Fund is not intended to be used by, and is not appropriate for, investors who do not intend to actively monitor and manage their portfolios. For periods longer than a calendar month, the Fund will lose money if the Index’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Fund will lose money even if the Index’s performance decreases. An investor could lose the full principal value of his/her investment within a calendar month if the Index gains more than 58% in one month.
Investment Objective
The Fund seeks monthly investment results, before fees and expenses, of 175% of the inverse (or opposite) of the calendar month performance of the Index. The Fund does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective for a period of time different than a full calendar month.
Fees and Expenses of the Fund
This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold, and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the tables and examples below.

"Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses" include fees and expenses incurred indirectly by the Fund as a result of investments in other investment companies, including investments in money market funds. Because acquired fund fees and expenses are not borne directly by the Fund, they will not be reflected in the expense information in the Fund's financial statements and the information presented in the table will differ from that presented in the Fund's financial highlights included in the Fund's reports to shareholders.
(2)
Rafferty Asset Management, LLC (“Rafferty” or the “Adviser”), has entered into an Operating Expense Limitation Agreement with the Fund. Under the Operating Expense Limitation Agreement, Rafferty has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for Other Expenses through September 1, 2024, to the extent that the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses exceed 1.35% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses).
Any expense waiver or reimbursement is subject to recoupment by the Adviser within the three years after the expense was waived/reimbursed only if overall Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses fall below the lesser of this percentage limitation and any percentage limitation in place at the time the expense was waived/reimbursed. This agreement may be terminated or revised at any time with the consent of the Board of Trustees.
Example - This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio Turnover
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in Annual Fund Operating Expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 0% of the average value of its portfolio. However, this portfolio turnover is calculated without regard to cash instruments or derivatives.
29
Direxion Funds Prospectus

If such instruments were included, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate would be significantly higher.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Index measures the performance of approximately 2,000 small-capitalization companies in the Russell 3000® Index, based on a combination of their market capitalization and current index membership.
As of October 31, 2022, the Index consisted of 1,958 holdings, which had an average market capitalization of $2.8 billion, total market capitalizations ranging from $16.9 million to $13 billion and were concentrated in the healthcare, financials, and industrials sectors.
The components of the Index and the percentages represented by various sectors in the Index may change over time. The Fund will concentrate its investment in a particular industry or group of industries (i.e., hold 25% or more of its total assets in investments that provide inverse exposure to a particular industry or group of industries) to approximately the same extent as the Index is so concentrated.
The Fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of the Fund’s net assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in swap agreements, futures contracts, short positions or other financial instruments that provide inverse (opposite) or short calendar month exposure to the Index or to ETFs that track the Index, which, in combination, provider returns consistent with the Fund’s investment objective.
The Fund is designed to lose money when the Index rises, which is a result that is the opposite from traditional index tracking funds. In order to achieve its monthly inverse investment objective, the Fund may invest in a combination of financial instruments, such as swaps that provide short exposure to the Index or to an ETF that tracks the same Index or a substantially similar index, short securities of the Index or short an ETF that tracks the same Index or a substantially similar index, or short futures contracts that provide short exposure to the Index. The Fund may gain inverse leveraged exposure utilizing financial instruments that provide short exposure to a representative sample of the securities in the Index that have aggregate characteristics similar to those of the Index. The Fund invests in derivatives as a substitute for directly shorting securities in order to gain inverse leveraged exposure to the Index or its components. On a day-to-day basis, the Fund is expected to hold money market funds, deposit accounts with institutions with high quality credit ratings, and/or short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements. The Fund seeks to remain fully invested at all times consistent with its stated inverse leveraged investment objective.
Because a significant portion of the assets of the Fund may come from investors using “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies, the Fund may engage in frequent trading.
The Fund is “non-diversified,” meaning that a relatively high percentage of its assets may be invested in a limited number of issuers of securities. Additionally, the Fund’s investment
objective is not a fundamental policy and may be changed by the Fund’s Board of Trustees without shareholder approval.
Principal Investment Risks
An investment in the Fund entails risk. The Fund may not achieve its inverse leveraged investment objective and there is a risk that you could lose all of your money invested in the Fund. The Fund is not a complete investment program. In addition, the Fund presents risks not traditionally associated with most mutual funds. It is important that investors closely review all of the risks listed below and understand them before making an investment in the Fund. While the realization of certain of the risks described below may benefit the Fund due to its inverse investment objective, such occurrences may introduce more volatility to the Fund, which could have a significant negative impact on Fund performance.
Effects of Compounding and Market Volatility Risk - The Fund has a monthly leveraged investment objective and the Fund’s performance for periods greater than a full calendar month, which is defined as the period from the end of the last business day of one calendar month through the close of trading on the last business day of the following calendar month, will be the result of each month's returns compounded over the period, which is very likely to differ from -175% of the Index’s performance, before fees and expenses. Compounding affects all investments, but has a more significant impact on funds that are inverse leveraged and that rebalance monthly and becomes more pronounced as volatility and holding periods increase. The impact of compounding will impact each shareholder differently depending on the period of time an investment in the Fund is held and the volatility of the Index during the shareholder’s holding period of an investment in the Fund.
The chart below provides examples of how Index volatility and its return could affect the Fund’s performance. Fund performance for periods greater than one calendar month can be estimated given any set of assumptions for the following factors: a) Index volatility; b) Index performance; c) period of time; d) financing rates associated with inverse leveraged exposure; e) other Fund expenses; and f) dividends or interest paid with respect to securities of the Index. The chart below illustrates the impact of two principal factors – Index volatility and Index performance – on Fund performance. The chart shows estimated Fund returns for a number of combinations of Index volatility and Index performance over a one-year period. Performance shown in the chart assumes that: (i) no dividends were paid with respect to the securities included in the Index; (ii) there were no Fund expenses; and (iii) borrowing/lending rates (to obtain inverse leveraged exposure) of 0%. If Fund expenses and/or actual borrowing/lending rates were reflected, the estimated returns would be different than those shown. Particularly during periods of higher Index volatility, compounding will cause results for periods longer than a full calendar month to vary from -175% of the performance of the Index.
As shown in the chart below, the Fund would be expected to lose 14% if the Index provided no return over a one year period during which the Index experienced annualized volatility of 25%. At higher ranges of volatility, there is a
Direxion Funds Prospectus
30

chance of a significant loss of value in the Fund, even if the Index’s return is flat. For instance, if the Index’s annualized volatility is 100%, the Fund would be expected to lose 91% of its value, even if the cumulative Index return for the year was 0%. Areas shaded red (or dark gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return less than -175% of the performance of the Index and those shaded green (or light gray) represent those scenarios where the Fund can be expected to return more than -175% of the performance of the Index. The table below is not a representation of the Fund’s actual returns, which may be significantly better or worse than the returns shown below as a result of any of the factors discussed above or in “Monthly Inverse Index Correlation Risk” below. The volatility of exchange traded securities or instruments that reflect the value of the Index may differ from the volatility of the Index.

The Index’s annualized historical volatility rate for the five year period ended September 30, 2022 was 26.65%. The Index’s highest volatility rate for any twelve-month period (October 1 to September 30) was 41.99% and volatility for a shorter period of time may have been substantially higher. The Index’s annualized performance for the five-year period ended September 30, 2022 was 3.55%. Historical Index volatility and performance are not indications of what the Index volatility and performance will be in the future. The volatility of ETFs or instruments that reflect the value of the Index, such as swaps, may differ from the volatility of the Index.
For information regarding the effects of volatility and Index performance on the long-term performance of the Fund, see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Techniques and Policies” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus, and “Negative Implications of Leveraged Monthly Goals In Volatile Markets” in the Fund’s Statement of Additional Information.
Leverage Risk The Fund obtains investment exposure in excess of its net assets by utilizing leverage and may lose more money in market conditions that are adverse to its investment objective than a fund that does not utilize leverage. An investment in the Fund is exposed to the risk that a rise in the monthly performance of the Index will be magnified. This means that an investment in the Fund will be reduced by an amount equal to 1.75% for every
1% monthly rise in the Index, not including the costs of financing leverage and other operating expenses, which would further reduce its value. The Fund could theoretically lose an amount greater than its net assets in the event of an Index rise of more than 58%. This would result in a total loss of a shareholder’s investment in one day even if the Index subsequently moves in the opposite direction and eliminates all or a portion of its earlier daily change. A total loss may occur in a single day even if the Index does not lose all of its value. Leverage will also have the effect of magnifying any differences in the Fund’s correlation with the Index and may increase the volatility of the Fund.
Due to the limited availability of necessary investments or financial instruments, the Fund could, among other things, as a defensive measure, limit or suspend purchases or redemptions of Fund shares until the Adviser determines that the requisite exposure to the Index is obtainable. The Fund may also change its investment objective by, for example, seeking to track an alternative index, or lowering its leverage multiple or the Fund could close.
Derivatives Risk Derivatives are financial instruments that derive value from the underlying reference asset or assets, such as stocks, bonds, or funds (including ETFs), interest rates or indexes. Investing in derivatives may be considered aggressive and may expose the Fund to greater risks, and may result in larger losses or smaller gains, than investing directly in the reference assets underlying those derivatives, which may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective.
The Fund’s investments in derivatives may pose risks in addition to, and greater than, those associated with directly investing in securities or other investments, including risk related to the market, leverage, imperfect correlations with underlying investments or the Fund’s other portfolio holdings, higher price volatility, lack of availability, counterparty, liquidity, valuation and legal restrictions. The performance of a derivative may not track the performance of its reference asset for various reasons, including due to fees and other costs associated with it. Additionally, a swap on an ETF may not closely track the performance of the Index due to costs associated with trading ETFs, such as an ETF’s premium or discount and the difference between its market price and its net asset value. If the Index has a dramatic intraday increase or decrease that causes a material change in the Fund’s net assets, the terms of a swap agreement between the Fund and its counterparty may permit the counterparty to immediately close the swap agreement with the Fund. In that event, the Fund may not be able to enter into another swap agreement or invest in other derivatives to achieve its investment objective. This may occur even if the Index reverses all or a portion of its intraday movement by the end of the day. Because derivatives often require only a limited initial investment, the use of derivatives may expose the Fund to losses in excess of the amount initially invested. As a result, the value of an investment in the Fund may change quickly and without warning. Additionally, any financing, borrowing or other costs associated with using derivatives may also have the effect of lowering the Fund’s return.

Counterparty Risk A counterparty may be unwilling or unable to make timely payments to meet its contractual obligations or may fail to return holdings that are subject to the agreement with the counterparty. If the counterparty or its affiliate becomes insolvent, bankrupt or defaults on its payment obligations to the Fund, the value of an investment held by the Fund may decline. Additionally, if any collateral posted by the counterparty for the benefit of the Fund is insufficient or there are delays in the Fund’s ability to access such collateral, the Fund may not be able to achieve its inverse leveraged investment objective.
In addition, the Fund may enter into swap agreements with a limited number of counterparties, which may increase the Fund’s exposure to counterparty credit risk. Further, there is a risk that no suitable counterparties will be willing to enter into, or continue to enter into, transactions with the Fund and, as a result, the Fund may not be able to achieve its inverse leveraged investment objective or may decide to change its inverse leveraged investment objective.
Rebalancing Risk If for any reason the Fund is unable to rebalance all or a part of its portfolio, or if all or a portion of the portfolio is rebalanced incorrectly, the Fund’s investment exposure may not be consistent with its investment objective. In these instances, the Fund may have investment exposure to the Index that is significantly greater or significantly less than its stated multiple. The Fund may be more exposed to leverage risk than if it had been properly rebalanced and may not achieve its investment objective, leading to significantly greater losses or reduced gains.
Shorting Risk – A short position is a financial transaction in which an investor sells an asset that the investor does not own. In such a transaction, an investor’s short position appreciates when a reference asset falls in value. By contrast, the short position loses value when the reference asset’s value increases. Because historically most assets have risen in value over the long term, short positions are expected to depreciate in value. Accordingly, short positions may be riskier and more speculative than traditional investments. In addition, any income, dividends or payments by reference assets in which the Fund has a short position will impose expenses on the Fund that reduce returns.
The Fund may obtain short exposure through the use of derivatives, such as swap agreements or futures contracts. To the extent that the Fund obtains short exposure from derivatives, the Fund may be exposed to heightened volatility or limited liquidity related to the reference asset of the underlying short position, which will adversely impact the Fund’s ability to meet its investment objective or adversely impact its performance. If the Fund were to experience this volatility or decreased liquidity, the Fund may be required to obtain short exposure through alternative investment strategies that may be less desirable or more costly to implement. If the reference asset underlying the short position is thinly traded or has a limited market, there may be a lack of available securities or counterparties for the Fund to enter into a short position or obtain short exposure from a derivative.
Intra-Calendar Month Investment Risk The Fund seeks calendar month inverse leveraged investment results. The
exact exposure of an investment in the Fund intra-month will depend upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor. If the Index loses value, the Fund’s net assets will rise by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Conversely, if the Index gains value, the Fund’s net assets will decline by the same amount as the Fund’s exposure. Thus, an investor who purchases shares on a day other than the last business day of a calendar month will likely obtain more, or less, than -175% leveraged investment exposure to the Index, depending upon the movement of the Index from the end of the prior calendar month until the time of investment by the investor.
If there is a significant intra-month market event and/or the securities of the Index experience a significant decrease, the Fund may not meet its investment objective or be able to rebalance its portfolio appropriately.
Monthly Inverse Index Correlation Risk There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a high degree of monthly inverse leveraged correlation to the Index. A number of factors may adversely affect the Fund’s inverse correlation with the Index, including fees, expenses, transaction costs, financing costs related to the use of derivatives, use of an ETF as a reference asset for derivative instruments, income items, valuation methodology, accounting standards, significant purchase and redemption activity by Fund shareholders and disruptions or illiquidity in the markets for the securities or derivatives held by the Fund.
In order to achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index, the Fund seeks to rebalance its portfolio on a monthly basis to keep exposure consistent with its inverse leveraged investment objective. Being materially over- or under-exposed to the Index may prevent the Fund from achieving a high degree of correlation with the Index. Market disruptions, regulatory restrictions or extreme volatility will also adversely affect the Fund’s ability to adjust exposure to the required levels. The target amount of portfolio exposure is impacted by the Index’s movement, thus it is unlikely the Fund will have perfect exposure (-175%) to the Index on the rebalance date and the likelihood of the Fund being materially over- or under-exposed is higher on days when the Index experiences volatility near the close of the trading day.
The Fund may not have inverse exposure to all securities in the Index, or its weighting of inverse exposure to such stocks or industries may be different from that of the Index. In addition, the Fund may invest in, or have exposure to, financial instruments not included in the Index. The Fund may also take, or refrain from taking, certain positions in order to improve tax efficiency or comply with regulatory restriction, either of which may negatively impact the Fund’s correlation with the Index. The Fund may be subject to large movements of assets into and out of the Fund, potentially resulting in the Fund being over- or under-exposed to the Index. Activities surrounding Index reconstitutions and other Index repositioning events may hinder the Fund’s ability to meet its calendar month inverse leveraged investment objective.
Market Risk The Fund’s investments are subject to changes in general economic conditions, general market fluctuations

and the risks inherent in investment in securities markets. Investment markets can be volatile and prices of investments can change substantially due to various factors including, but not limited to, economic growth or recession, changes in interest rates, changes in the actual or perceived creditworthiness of issuers, general market liquidity, exchange trading suspensions and closures, and public health risks. The Fund is subject to the risk that geopolitical events will disrupt the securities, swap agreements or futures contract markets and adversely affect global economies, markets and exchanges. Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, natural disasters, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, conflicts and social unrest or other events could have a significant impact on the Fund, its investments, and the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective.
Financials Sector Risk Performance of companies in the financials sector may be materially impacted by many factors, including but not limited to, government regulations, economic conditions, credit rating downgrades, changes in interest rates and decreased liquidity in credit markets. Profitability of these companies is largely dependent on the availability and cost of capital and can fluctuate significantly when interest rates change. Credit losses resulting from financial difficulties of borrowers also can negatively impact the sector. These companies are also subject to substantial government regulation and intervention, which may adversely impact the scope of their activities, the prices they can charge, the amount of capital they must maintain, and potentially, their size. Government regulation may change frequently and may have significant adverse consequences for financial companies, including effects that are not intended by such regulation. The impact of more stringent capital requirements, or recent or future regulation in various countries on any individual financial company or of the financials sector as a whole, cannot be predicted. The financials sector is also a target for cyber attacks and may experience technology malfunctions and disruptions, which have occurred more frequently in recent years.
Healthcare Sector Risk The profitability of companies in the healthcare sector may be affected by extensive, costly and uncertain government regulation, restrictions on government reimbursement for medical expenses, rising costs of medical products and services, pricing pressure, changes in the demand for medical products and services, an increased emphasis on outpatient services, limited product lines, industry innovation and/or consolidation, changes in technologies and other market developments. Many healthcare companies are heavily dependent on patent protection, which may be time consuming and costly. The expiration of patents may adversely affect the profitability of these companies. Many healthcare companies are subject to extensive litigation based on product liability and similar claims. Healthcare companies are subject to competitive forces that may make it difficult to raise prices and, in fact, may result in price discounting. Many new products in the healthcare sector require significant research and development and may be subject to regulatory approvals.
The process of obtaining such approvals may be long and costly with no guarantee that any product will come to market.
Industrials Sector Risk Stock prices of issuers in the industrials sector are affected by supply and demand both for their specific product or service and for industrials sector products in general. Government regulation, world events including trade disputes, exchange rates and economic conditions, technological developments and liabilities for environmental damage and general civil liabilities will also affect the performance of investment in such issuers. Aerospace and defense companies, a component of the industrials sector, can be significantly affected by government spending policies because companies involved in this industry rely to a significant extent on U.S. and other government demand for their products and services. Thus, the financial condition of, and investor interest in, aerospace and defense companies are heavily influenced by government defense spending policies which are typically under pressure from efforts to control government spending budgets. Transportation companies, another component of the industrials sector, are subject to cyclical performance and therefore investment in such companies may experience occasional sharp price movements which may result from changes in the economy, fuel prices, labor agreements and insurance costs. The industrials sector may also be adversely affected by changes or trends in commodity prices, which may be influenced by unpredictable factors. Issuers with high carbon intensity or high switching costs associated with the transition to low carbon alternatives may be more impacted by climate transition risks.
Micro-Capitalization Company Risk - Micro-capitalization companies often have limited product lines, narrower markets for their goods and/or services and more limited managerial and financial resources than larger, more established companies, including companies which are considered small- or mid-capitalization. As a result, their performance can be more volatile and they face greater risk of business failure, which could increase the volatility of the Fund’s portfolio.
Small- and/or Mid-Capitalization Company Risk
Small- and mid-capitalization companies often have narrower markets for their goods and/or services, less stable earnings, and more limited managerial and financial resources and often have limited product lines, services, markets, financial resources or are dependent on a small management group. Because these stocks are not well-known to the investing public, do not have significant institutional ownership and are followed by relatively few security analysts, there will normally be less publicly available information concerning these securities compared to what is available for the securities of larger companies. Adverse publicity and investor perceptions, whether or not based on fundamental analysis, can decrease the value and liquidity of securities held by the Fund resulting in more volatile performance. These companies may face greater risk of business failure, which could increase the volatility of the Fund’s portfolio.
Early Close/Trading Halt Risk An exchange or market may close or issue trading halts on specific securities of financial instruments or restrict the ability to buy or sell certain portfolio

securities or financial instruments, which may result in the Fund being unable to buy or sell certain securities or financial instruments. In such circumstances, the Fund may be unable to accurately price its investments, may incur significant tracking differences with its Index, may incur substantial losses and may limit or stop purchases of the Fund.
Equity Securities Risk Publicly issued equity securities, including common stocks, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time. Fluctuations in the value of equity securities in which the Fund invests, and/or has exposure to, will cause the net asset value of the Fund to fluctuate.
Market Timing Activity Risk Rafferty expects a significant portion of the assets of the Fund to come from professional money managers and investors who use the Fund as part of “asset allocation” and “market timing” investment strategies. These strategies often call for frequent trading, which may lead to large shareholder transactions into and out of the Fund. These large movements of assets may lead to increased portfolio turnover, higher transaction costs and the possibility of increased net realized capital gains, including net short-term capital gains. Additionally, these large movement of assets may have a negative impact on the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective or maintain a consistent level of operating expenses. In certain circumstances, the Fund’s expense ratio may vary from current estimates or the historical ratio disclosed in this Prospectus.
Money Market Instrument Risk The Fund may use a
