Fees and Expenses of the Fund
The table below 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.

1The Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses and Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements do not correlate to the ratios of expenses to average net assets in the Financial Highlights section of this Prospectus, which reflect only the operating expenses of the Fund and do not include fees and expenses of any acquired fund, which are reflected in “Other Expenses” above.
2AMG Funds LLC (the “Investment Manager”) has contractually agreed, through at least March 1, 2024, to waive management fees and/or pay or reimburse the Fund’s expenses in order to limit Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of taxes, interest (including interest incurred in connection with bank and custody overdrafts and in connection with securities sold short), shareholder servicing fees, distribution and service (12b-1) fees, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, dividends payable with respect to securities sold short, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) of the Fund to the annual rate of 0.60% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (this annual rate or such other annual rate that may be in effect from time to time, the “Expense Cap”), subject to later reimbursement by the Fund in certain circumstances. In general, for a period of up to 36 months after the date any amounts are paid, waived or reimbursed by the Investment Manager, the Investment Manager may recover such amounts from the Fund, provided that such repayment would not cause the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of the items noted in the parenthetical above) to exceed either (i) the Expense Cap in effect at the time such amounts were paid, waived or reimbursed, or (ii) the Expense Cap in effect at the time of such repayment by the Fund. The contractual expense limitation may only be terminated in the event the Investment Manager or a successor ceases to be the investment manager of the Fund or a successor fund, by mutual agreement between the Investment Manager and the AMG Funds I Board of Trustees or in the event of the Fund’s liquidation unless the Fund is reorganized or is a party to a merger in which the surviving entity is successor to the accounting and performance information of the Fund.
Expense Example
This Example will help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund to the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The Example makes certain assumptions. It assumes that you invest $10,000 as an initial investment in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. It also assumes that your investment has a 5% total return each year and the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The Example includes the Fund’s contractual expense limitation through March 1, 2024. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on the above assumptions, your costs would be:

10 Years
Class N

$332
$584
$1,306
Class I
$65
$231
$411
$931
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 91% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities of large-capitalization companies. The Fund currently considers large-capitalization companies to be those with market capitalizations at the time of acquisition within the capitalization range of the Russell 1000® Index (between $2.9 billion and $2,545.6 billion as of May 6, 2022, the date of the latest reconstitution of the Index (implemented by the Index June 24, 2022)). This capitalization range will change over time. The Fund may continue to hold securities of a portfolio company that subsequently drops below or appreciates above this capitalization threshold. Because of this, the Fund may have less than 80% of its net assets in securities of large-capitalization companies at any given time. Under normal conditions, the Fund intends to invest its assets in the equity securities of a limited number of issuers. The Fund is non-diversified.  
The Fund invests primarily in equity securities that River Road Asset Management, LLC, the subadviser to the Fund (“River Road” or the “Subadviser”), believes are undervalued, including common stock, foreign securities (directly and through depositary receipts) and real estate investment trusts (“REITs”).  

3AMG Funds

Summary of The Funds
 
Value investing involves buying stocks that River Road believes are out of favor and/or undervalued in comparison to their peers or their prospects for growth. The Fund may also invest in common stock of companies with market capitalizations that are below that of the Russell 1000® Index at the time of acquisition, convertible securities, preferred securities, and publicly traded partnerships (“PTPs”), including, but not limited to, master limited partnerships (“MLPs”).  
The Subadviser’s investment philosophy is based upon its proprietary Absolute Value® approach, which seeks to generate attractive, sustainable, low volatility returns over the long term, with an emphasis on minimizing downside portfolio risk.  
The Subadviser builds the Fund’s portfolio from the bottom up, making security-specific research central to the Subadviser’s process. At the core of the Subadviser’s Absolute Value® approach is a systematic method for assessing the ‘risk-to-reward’ characteristics of an investment. The goal of the research process is to formulate two outputs from which an investment decision is made – conviction rating (risk) and discount to value (reward). A stock’s conviction rating combined with its discount to value determine not only whether the stock qualifies for investment, but also how the stock will be sized within the Fund.  
To seek to manage risk, the Subadviser employs a structured sell discipline. 
Principal Risks
There is the risk that you may lose money on your investment. All investments carry a certain amount of risk, and the Fund cannot guarantee that it will achieve its investment objective. An investment in the Fund is not a deposit or obligation of any bank, is not endorsed or guaranteed by any bank, and is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) or any other government agency.
Below are some of the risks of investing in the Fund. The risks are presented in an order intended to facilitate readability and their order does not imply that the realization of one risk is more likely to occur than another risk or likely to have a greater adverse impact than another risk. The significance of any specific risk to an investment in the Fund will vary over time, depending on the composition of the Fund’s portfolio, market conditions, and other factors. You should read all of the risk information presented below carefully, because any one or more of these risks may result in losses to the Fund. 
Market Risk—market prices of investments held by the Fund may fall rapidly or unpredictably due to a variety of factors, including economic, political, or market conditions, or other factors including terrorism, war, natural disasters and the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, including epidemics or pandemics such as the COVID-19 pandemic, or in response to events that affect particular industries or companies. 
Focused Investment Risk—to the extent the Fund invests a substantial portion of its assets in a relatively small number of securities or a particular market, industry, group of industries, country, region, group of countries, asset class or sector, it generally will be subject to greater risk than a fund that invests in a more diverse investment portfolio. In addition, the value of  
the Fund would be more susceptible to any single economic, market, political or regulatory occurrence affecting, for example, that particular market, industry, region or sector. 
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk—the stocks of large-capitalization companies are generally more mature and may not be able to reach the same levels of growth as the stocks of small- or mid-capitalization companies. 
Management Risk—because the Fund is an actively managed investment portfolio, security selection or focus on securities in a particular style, market sector or group of companies may cause the Fund to incur losses or underperform relative to its benchmarks or other funds with a similar investment objective. There can be no guarantee that the Subadviser’s investment techniques and risk analysis will produce the desired result. 
Non-Diversified Fund Risk—the Fund is non-diversified and therefore a greater percentage of holdings may be focused in a small number of issuers or a single issuer, which can place the Fund at greater risk. Notwithstanding the Fund’s status as a “non-diversified” investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”), the Fund intends to qualify as a regulated investment company accorded favorable tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Internal Revenue Code”), which imposes its own diversification requirements that are less restrictive than the requirements applicable to “diversified” investment companies under the 1940 Act. The Fund’s intention to qualify as a regulated investment company may limit its pursuit of its investment strategy and its investment strategy could limit its ability to so qualify. 
Sector Risk—issuers and companies that are in similar industry sectors may be similarly affected by particular economic or market events; to the extent the Fund has substantial holdings within a particular sector, the risks associated with that sector increase. Stocks in the communication services and financials sectors may comprise a significant portion of the Fund's portfolio. The communications services sector is subject to government regulation and can be significantly affected by intense competition and technology changes. Companies in the communications services sector may be more susceptible to cybersecurity issues, such as hacking, theft of proprietary or consumer information, or disruptions in service, than companies in other industries and may encounter distressed cash flows due to the need to commit substantial capital to develop new products and services that utilize new technology or to meet increasing competition. Unique risks of the financials sector include, but are not limited to, government regulation uncertainty, yield curve fluctuation, asset flow fluctuation, and capital market fluctuations. 
Value Stock Risk—value stocks may perform differently from the market as a whole and may be undervalued by the market for a long period of time. 
Convertible Securities Risk— convertible preferred stocks, which are convertible into shares of the issuer’s common stock and pay regular dividends, and convertible debt securities, which are convertible into shares of the issuer’s common stock and bear interest, are subject to the risks of equity securities and  

4AMG Funds

Summary of The Funds
 
fixed income securities. The lower the conversion premium, the more likely the price of the convertible security will follow the price of the underlying common stock. Conversely, higher premium convertible securities are more likely to exhibit the behavior of bonds because the likelihood of conversion is lower, which may cause their prices to fall as interest rates rise. There is the risk that the issuer of convertible preferred stock will not be able to make dividend payments or that the issuer of a convertible bond will not be able to make principal and/or interest payments. 
Currency Risk—fluctuations in exchange rates may affect the total loss or gain on a non-U.S. dollar investment when converted back to U.S. dollars and exposure to non-U.S. currencies may subject the Fund to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to the U.S. dollar. 
Foreign Investment Risk—investments in foreign issuers involve additional risks (such as risks arising from less frequent trading, changes in political or social conditions, and less publicly available information about non-U.S. issuers) that differ from those associated with investments in U.S. issuers and may result in greater price volatility. 
Master Limited Partnership Risk—investments in master limited partnerships are subject to similar risks to those associated with the specific industry or industries in which the partnership invests, such as the risk of investing in the real estate or oil and gas industries. In addition, investments in master limited partnerships are subject to the risks of investing in a partnership, including limited control and voting rights on matters affecting the partnership and fewer investor protections compared to corporations. 
PTP Risk— investing in PTPs (including master limited partnerships) involves special risks in addition to those typically associated with publicly traded companies. PTPs are exposed to the risks of their underlying assets, which in many cases includes the same types of risks as energy and natural resources companies, such as commodity pricing risk, supply and demand risk and depletion and exploration risk. PTPs are also subject to capital markets risk, which is the risk that they may be unable to raise capital to execute their growth strategies. PTPs are also subject to tax risk, which is the risk that PTPs may lose their partnership status for tax purposes. The Fund’s ability to make investments in certain PTPs, including master limited partnerships, can be limited by the Fund’s intention to qualify as a regulated investment company, and if the Fund does not appropriately limit such investments or if such investments are recharacterized for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Fund’s status as a regulated investment company may be jeopardized. 
Real Estate Industry Risk—investments in the Fund may be subject to many of the same risks as a direct investment in real estate. The stock prices of companies in the real estate industry, including REITs, are typically sensitive to changes in real estate values, property taxes, interest rates, cash flow of underlying real estate assets, occupancy rates, government regulations affecting zoning, land use, and rents, as well as the management skill and creditworthiness of the issuer. REITs also depend generally on  
their ability to generate cash flow to make distributions to shareholders or unitholders and are subject to the risk of failing to qualify for favorable tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code. 
Performance
The following performance information illustrates the risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund’s performance from year to year and by showing how the Fund’s performance compares to that of a broad-based securities market index. As always, past performance of the Fund (before and after taxes) is not an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future.
As of March 22, 2021, River Road was appointed as subadviser to the Fund and the Fund changed its name to “AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund”, adopted its current investment strategies and began comparing its performance to the Russell 1000® Value Index. The Fund’s performance information for periods prior to March 22, 2021 reflects the Fund’s investment strategy that was in effect at the time and would have been different had the Fund’s current investment strategy been in effect.  
The performance information for the Fund’s Class N shares (formerly Investor Class shares, which were renamed Class N shares on October 1, 2016 (formerly Class A shares, which were renamed Investor Class shares on December 1, 2012)) for periods prior to December 1, 2012, does not reflect the impact of the front-end and deferred sales charges (loads) that were in effect until December 1, 2012. Effective October 1, 2016, outstanding Institutional Class shares of the Fund were renamed Class I shares.

Tax Information
The Fund intends to make distributions that are taxable to you as ordinary income, qualified dividend income or capital gains, except when your investment is in an IRA, 401(k), or other tax-advantaged investment plan. By investing in the Fund through such a plan, you will not be subject to tax on distributions from the Fund so long as the amounts distributed remain in the plan, but you will generally be taxed upon withdrawal of monies from the plan.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and its related companies, including the Investment Manager, AMG Distributors, Inc. (the “Distributor”) and the Subadviser, may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

2AMG Funds LLC (the “Investment Manager”) has contractually agreed, through at least March 1, 2024, to waive management fees and/or pay or reimburse the Fund’s expenses in order to limit Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of taxes, interest (including interest incurred in connection with bank and custody overdrafts and in connection with securities sold short), shareholder servicing fees, distribution and service (12b-1) fees, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, dividends payable with respect to securities sold short, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) of the Fund to the annual rate of 0.93% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (this annual rate or such other annual rate that may be in effect from time to time, the “Expense Cap”), subject to later reimbursement by the Fund in certain circumstances. In general, for a period of up to 36 months after the date any amounts are paid, waived or reimbursed by the Investment Manager, the Investment Manager may recover such amounts from the Fund, provided that such repayment would not cause the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of the items noted in the parenthetical above) to exceed either (i) the Expense Cap in effect at the time such amounts were paid, waived or reimbursed, or (ii) the Expense Cap in effect at the time of such repayment by the Fund. The contractual expense limitation may only be terminated in the event the Investment Manager or a successor ceases to be the investment manager of the Fund or a successor fund, by mutual agreement between the Investment Manager and the AMG Funds I Board of Trustees or in the event of the Fund’s liquidation unless the Fund is reorganized or is a party to a merger in which the surviving entity is successor to the accounting and performance information of the Fund.
Expense Example
This Example will help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund to the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The Example makes certain assumptions. It assumes that you invest $10,000 as an initial investment in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. It also assumes that your investment has a 5% total return each year and the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The Example includes the Fund’s contractual expense limitation through March 1, 2024. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on the above 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 82% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities of issuers located in China (People’s Republic of China (“PRC”) and its Special Administrative Regions, Hong Kong and Macau) or issuers that are not located in China but derive a majority (over 50%) of their income from China. The Fund primarily invests in equity securities. Under normal circumstances, the Fund considers equity securities to include common and preferred stocks, as well as securities with equity characteristics, including, but not limited to, equity linked securities and participatory notes (P-Notes).
The Fund intends to invest in focused equity positions, identified through the bottom-up, stock picking approach of Veritas Asset Management LLP, the subadviser to the Fund (“Veritas” or the “Subadviser”), with a macro overlay. The Subadviser’s macro analysis will focus on identifying long term themes and trends and then proceed to identifying companies within those identified themes and trends that it believes have sound business models, strong management and disciplined financial controls. The Fund seeks to focus on quality companies in sectors that the Subadviser believes show long term structural  

7AMG Funds

Summary of The Funds
 
growth potential with emphasis on industry leaders or emerging leaders with durable competitiveness. The macro themes are identified via a combination of in-house and external research. Asian domestic demand is an example of a theme internal to the Subadviser. In part, the Fund uses this analysis to seek to identify opportunities to invest in Chinese companies whose businesses are benefitting from rising Chinese consumer spending in consumer goods or services.  
The Fund intends to gain exposure to equity securities of issuers located in China or issuers that are not located in China but derive a majority (over 50%) of their income from China through direct investments in equities listed on mainland China stock exchanges, such as the Shanghai and Shenzen stock exchanges, via Hong Kong through the market access program through which foreign investors can deal in select Class A Shares (Stock Connect) or indirect exposure through P-Notes or similar equity linked securities. Equity linked securities are a type of derivative instrument that have a return component based on the performance of another security, and provide the Fund with an alternative to investing in the underlying security directly in situations where the Fund would have to register with a foreign exchange or foreign securities agency to be able to do so. P-Notes are a type of derivative instrument used by the Fund to access non-U.S. markets and to gain exposure to, primarily, equity securities of issuers listed on a non-U.S. exchange rather than purchasing securities directly.  
The Fund will generally invest in mid- to large-capitalization companies, although the Fund may also invest in small-capitalization companies. The Fund generally invests in companies with market capitalizations greater than $5 billion. The Fund currently expects to hold between 15 and 40 positions at any time. The Fund is non-diversified.  
The Fund may hold assets in cash and cash equivalents, and at times these holdings may be significant. The Fund’s cash level at any point typically relates to the Subadviser’s individual security selection process, and therefore may vary, depending on the Subadviser’s desired security weightings. 
Principal Risks
There is the risk that you may lose money on your investment. All investments carry a certain amount of risk, and the Fund cannot guarantee that it will achieve its investment objective. An investment in the Fund is not a deposit or obligation of any bank, is not endorsed or guaranteed by any bank, and is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) or any other government agency.
Below are some of the risks of investing in the Fund. The risks are presented in an order intended to facilitate readability and their order does not imply that the realization of one risk is more likely to occur than another risk or likely to have a greater adverse impact than another risk. The significance of any specific risk to an investment in the Fund will vary over time, depending on the composition of the Fund’s portfolio, market conditions, and other factors. You should read all of the risk information presented below carefully, because any one or more of these risks may result in losses to the Fund. 
Market Risk—market prices of investments held by the Fund may fall rapidly or unpredictably due to a variety of factors, including economic, political, or market conditions, or other factors including terrorism, war, natural disasters and the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, including epidemics or pandemics such as the COVID-19 pandemic, or in response to events that affect particular industries or companies. 
Management Risk—because the Fund is an actively managed investment portfolio, security selection or focus on securities in a particular style, market sector or group of companies may cause the Fund to incur losses or underperform relative to its benchmarks or other funds with a similar investment objective. There can be no guarantee that the Subadviser’s investment techniques and risk analysis will produce the desired result. 
Geographic Focus Risk—to the extent the Fund focuses its investments in a particular country, group of countries or geographic region, the Fund is particularly susceptible to economic, political, regulatory or other events or conditions affecting such countries or region, and the Fund’s NAV may be more volatile than the NAV of a more geographically diversified fund and may result in losses.  
Greater China. The Fund is particularly susceptible to risks in the Greater China region, which consists of Hong Kong, The People’s Republic of China and Taiwan, among other countries. Economies in the Greater China region are dependent on the economies of other countries and can be significantly affected by currency fluctuations and increasing competition from other emerging economies in Asia with lower costs. Adverse events in any one country within the region may impact the other countries in the region or Asia as a whole. Markets in the Greater China region can experience significant volatility due to social, economic, regulatory and political uncertainties. Significant portions of the Chinese securities markets may become rapidly illiquid, as Chinese issuers have the ability to suspend the trading of their equity securities, and have shown a willingness to exercise that option in response to market volatility and other events. U.S. or foreign government restrictions or intervention could negatively affect the implementation of the Fund’s investment strategies, for example by precluding the Fund from making certain investments or causing the Fund to sell investments at disadvantageous times. China has yet to develop comprehensive securities, corporate, or commercial laws, its market is relatively new and less developed, and its economy may be adversely impacted by a slowdown in export growth. 
Focused Investment Risk—to the extent the Fund invests a substantial portion of its assets in a relatively small number of securities or a particular market, industry, group of industries, country, region, group of countries, asset class or sector, it generally will be subject to greater risk than a fund that invests in a more diverse investment portfolio. In addition, the value of the Fund would be more susceptible to any single economic, market, political or regulatory occurrence affecting, for example, that particular market, industry, region or sector. 
Foreign Investment Risk—investments in foreign issuers involve additional risks (such as risks arising from less frequent trading, changes in political or social conditions, and less

Summary of The Funds
 
publicly available information about non-U.S. issuers) that differ from those associated with investments in U.S. issuers and may result in greater price volatility. 
Currency Risk—fluctuations in exchange rates may affect the total loss or gain on a non-U.S. dollar investment when converted back to U.S. dollars and exposure to non-U.S. currencies may subject the Fund to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to the U.S. dollar. 
Emerging Markets Risk—investments in emerging markets are subject to the general risks of foreign investments, as well as additional risks which can result in greater price volatility. Such additional risks include the risk that markets in emerging market countries are typically less developed and less liquid than markets in developed countries and such markets are subjected to increased economic, political, or regulatory uncertainties. 
High Cash Balance Risk— when the Fund has a significant cash balance for a sustained period, the benefit to the Fund of any market upswing may likely be reduced, and the Fund’s performance may be adversely affected. 
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk—the stocks of large-capitalization companies are generally more mature and may not be able to reach the same levels of growth as the stocks of small- or mid-capitalization companies. 
Liquidity Risk—the Fund may not be able to dispose of particular investments, such as illiquid securities, readily at favorable times or prices or the Fund may have to sell them at a loss. 
Non-Diversified Fund Risk—the Fund is non-diversified and therefore a greater percentage of holdings may be focused in a small number of issuers or a single issuer, which can place the Fund at greater risk. Notwithstanding the Fund’s status as a “non-diversified” investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”), the Fund intends to qualify as a regulated investment company accorded favorable tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Internal Revenue Code”), which imposes its own diversification requirements that are less restrictive than the requirements applicable to “diversified” investment companies under the 1940 Act. The Fund’s intention to qualify as a regulated investment company may limit its pursuit of its investment strategy and its investment strategy could limit its ability to so qualify. 
Participatory Notes Risk—an investment in participatory notes is subject to market risk. The performance results of participatory notes may not exactly replicate the performance of the underlying securities. An investment in participatory notes is also subject to counterparty risk, relating to the non-U.S. bank or broker-dealer that issues the participatory notes, and may be subject to liquidity risk. 
Political Risk—changes in the general political and social environment of a country can have substantial effects on the value of investments exposed to that country. 
PRC Tax Risk—the application of the tax laws and regulations of the PRC to income, including capital gains, derived from certain investments of the Fund remains unclear, and may well continue to evolve, possibly with retroactive effect. Any taxes imposed on the investments of the Fund pursuant to such laws and regulations will reduce the Fund’s overall returns. 
Small- and Mid-Capitalization Stock Risk—the stocks of small- and mid-capitalization companies often have greater price volatility, lower trading volume, and less liquidity than the stocks of larger, more established companies. 
Stock Connect Risk—trading in China A-Shares through Stock Connect is subject to sudden changes in quota limitations, application of trading suspensions, differences in trading days between the People's Republic of China and Stock Connect, operational risk, clearing and settlement risk and regulatory and taxation risk. 
Value Stock Risk—value stocks may perform differently from the market as a whole and may be undervalued by the market for a long period of time. 
Variable Interest Entity Risk—the Fund may gain investment exposure to certain Chinese companies through variable interest entity (“VIE”) structures. A VIE structure enables foreign investors, such as the Fund, to obtain investment exposure to a Chinese company in situations in which the Chinese government has limited or prohibited non-Chinese ownership of such company. A VIE does not have equity ownership in its corresponding China-based company but has claims to the China-based company’s profits and control of its assets through contractual arrangements. VIEs are a common industry practice and well known to officials and regulators in China; however, VIEs are not formally recognized under Chinese law. If the Chinese government takes action adversely affecting VIEs, the market value of the Fund’s associated portfolio holdings would likely suffer significant, detrimental, and possibly permanent consequences, which could result in substantial investment losses. 
Performance
The following performance information illustrates the risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund’s performance from year to year and by showing how the Fund’s performance compares to that of a broad-based securities market index. As always, past performance of the Fund (before and after taxes) is not an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future.
As of May 21, 2021, Veritas was appointed as subadviser to the Fund and the Fund changed its name to “AMG Veritas China Fund,” adopted its current investment strategies and began comparing its performance to the MSCI China Index. The Fund’s performance information for periods prior to May 21, 2021 reflects the Fund’s investment strategy that was in effect at that time and would have been different had the Fund’s current investment strategy been in effect.

1AMG Funds LLC (the “Investment Manager”) has contractually agreed, through at least March 1, 2024, to waive management fees and/or pay or reimburse the Fund’s expenses in order to limit Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of taxes, interest (including interest incurred in connection with bank and custody overdrafts and in connection with securities sold short), shareholder servicing fees, distribution and service (12b-1) fees, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, dividends payable with respect to securities sold short, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) of the Fund to the annual rate of 0.88% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (this annual rate or such other annual rate that may be in effect from time to time, the “Expense Cap”), subject to later reimbursement by the Fund in certain circumstances. In general, for a period of up to 36 months after the date any amounts are paid, waived or reimbursed by the Investment Manager, the Investment Manager may recover such amounts from the Fund, provided that such repayment would not cause the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of the items noted in the parenthetical above) to exceed either (i) the Expense Cap in effect at the time such amounts were paid, waived or reimbursed, or (ii) the Expense Cap in effect at the time of such repayment by the Fund. The contractual expense limitation may only be terminated in the event the Investment Manager or a successor ceases to be the investment manager of the Fund or a successor fund, by mutual agreement between the Investment Manager and the AMG Funds I Board of Trustees or in the event of the Fund’s liquidation unless the Fund is reorganized or is a party to a merger in which the surviving entity is successor to the accounting and performance information of the Fund.
Expense Example
This Example will help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund to the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The Example makes certain assumptions. It assumes that you invest $10,000 as an initial investment in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. It also assumes that your investment has a 5% total
return each year and the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The Example includes the Fund’s contractual expense limitation through March 1, 2024. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on the above assumptions, your costs would be:

$406
$718
$1,605
Class I
$90
$328
$585
$1,320
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 21% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
The Fund intends to invest in equity securities of a relatively select group of global companies, identified through a bottom up stock picking approach with certain strategic themes identified by Veritas Asset Management LLP, the subadviser to the Fund (“Veritas” or the “Subadviser”). The Subadviser seeks to identify and invest in businesses at reasonable valuations. The Subadviser seeks to identify industry leaders in relatively stable industries where there is greater visibility of sustainable earnings and recurring revenues, but equity investments must generally satisfy a number of demanding valuation criteria, with particular attention paid to the level of free cash flow generation from the business.
The Fund will take focused equity positions identified via the analysis of the Subadviser, which will focus on identifying long term themes and trends and then proceed to identifying companies within those themes and trends that it believes have sound business models, strong management and disciplined financial controls. The themes and trends are identified with an emphasis on in-house research, although external research is also used.
The Fund will generally invest in mid- to large-capitalization companies, although the Fund may also invest in small-capitalization companies. The Fund generally invests in companies with market capitalizations greater than $5 billion. The Fund currently expects to hold between 25 and 40 positions. The Fund is non-diversified.  

12AMG Funds

Summary of The Funds
 
Additionally, under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 35% (or if conditions are not favorable, in the view of Veritas, at least 25%) of its net assets in investments economically tied to countries other than the U.S., and the Fund will hold investments economically tied to a minimum of three countries other than the U.S. The Fund considers an investment to be economically tied to a country other than the U.S. if it provides investment exposure to a non-U.S. issuer. The Fund considers a company to be a non-U.S. issuer if (i) it is organized outside the U.S. or maintains a principal place of business outside the U.S., (ii) its securities are traded principally outside the U.S., or (iii) during its most recent fiscal year, it derived at least 50% of its revenues or profits from goods produced or sold, investments made, or services performed outside the U.S. or it has at least 50% of its assets outside the U.S. The Fund may invest in securities of issuers located in any country outside the U.S., including developed and emerging market countries.  
The Fund may hold assets in cash and cash equivalents, and at times these holdings may be significant. The Fund’s cash level at any point typically relates to the Subadviser’s individual security selection process, and therefore may vary, depending on the Subadviser’s desired security weightings. 
Principal Risks
There is the risk that you may lose money on your investment. All investments carry a certain amount of risk, and the Fund cannot guarantee that it will achieve its investment objective. An investment in the Fund is not a deposit or obligation of any bank, is not endorsed or guaranteed by any bank, and is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) or any other government agency.
Below are some of the risks of investing in the Fund. The risks are presented in an order intended to facilitate readability and their order does not imply that the realization of one risk is more likely to occur than another risk or likely to have a greater adverse impact than another risk. The significance of any specific risk to an investment in the Fund will vary over time, depending on the composition of the Fund’s portfolio, market conditions, and other factors. You should read all of the risk information presented below carefully, because any one or more of these risks may result in losses to the Fund. 
Market Risk—market prices of investments held by the Fund may fall rapidly or unpredictably due to a variety of factors, including economic, political, or market conditions, or other factors including terrorism, war, natural disasters and the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, including epidemics or pandemics such as the COVID-19 pandemic, or in response to events that affect particular industries or companies. 
Management Risk—because the Fund is an actively managed investment portfolio, security selection or focus on securities in a particular style, market sector or group of companies may cause the Fund to incur losses or underperform relative to its benchmarks or other funds with a similar investment objective. There can be no guarantee that the Subadviser’s investment techniques and risk analysis will produce the desired result. 
Foreign Investment Risk—investments in foreign issuers involve additional risks (such as risks arising from less frequent trading, changes in political or social conditions, and less publicly available information about non-U.S. issuers) that differ from those associated with investments in U.S. issuers and may result in greater price volatility. 
Focused Investment Risk—to the extent the Fund invests a substantial portion of its assets in a relatively small number of securities or a particular market, industry, group of industries, country, region, group of countries, asset class or sector, it generally will be subject to greater risk than a fund that invests in a more diverse investment portfolio. In addition, the value of the Fund would be more susceptible to any single economic, market, political or regulatory occurrence affecting, for example, that particular market, industry, region or sector. 
Value Stock Risk—value stocks may perform differently from the market as a whole and may be undervalued by the market for a long period of time. 
Currency Risk—fluctuations in exchange rates may affect the total loss or gain on a non-U.S. dollar investment when converted back to U.S. dollars and exposure to non-U.S. currencies may subject the Fund to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to the U.S. dollar. 
Emerging Markets Risk—investments in emerging markets are subject to the general risks of foreign investments, as well as additional risks which can result in greater price volatility. Such additional risks include the risk that markets in emerging market countries are typically less developed and less liquid than markets in developed countries and such markets are subjected to increased economic, political, or regulatory uncertainties. 
High Cash Balance Risk— when the Fund has a significant cash balance for a sustained period, the benefit to the Fund of any market upswing may likely be reduced, and the Fund’s performance may be adversely affected. 
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk—the stocks of large-capitalization companies are generally more mature and may not be able to reach the same levels of growth as the stocks of small- or mid-capitalization companies. 
Liquidity Risk—the Fund may not be able to dispose of particular investments, such as illiquid securities, readily at favorable times or prices or the Fund may have to sell them at a loss. 
Non-Diversified Fund Risk—the Fund is non-diversified and therefore a greater percentage of holdings may be focused in a small number of issuers or a single issuer, which can place the Fund at greater risk. Notwithstanding the Fund’s status as a “non-diversified” investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”), the Fund intends to qualify as a regulated investment company accorded favorable tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Internal Revenue Code”), which imposes its own diversification requirements that are less restrictive than the requirements applicable to “diversified” investment companies under the 1940 Act. The Fund’s intention to qualify as a regulated investment company may limit its pursuit of its

Summary of The Funds
 
investment strategy and its investment strategy could limit its ability to so qualify. 
Political Risk—changes in the general political and social environment of a country can have substantial effects on the value of investments exposed to that country. 
Small- and Mid-Capitalization Stock Risk—the stocks of small- and mid-capitalization companies often have greater price volatility, lower trading volume, and less liquidity than the stocks of larger, more established companies.

Additional Information About the Funds
AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund
The Fund will invest primarily in the securities and instruments as described in the summary section of the Fund’s Prospectus. This section contains additional information about the Fund’s investment strategies and the investment techniques utilized by the Fund's Subadviser in managing the Fund, and also additional information about the Fund's expenses and performance.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE FUND'S PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
The Fund currently considers large-capitalization companies to be those with market capitalizations at the time of acquisition within the capitalization range of the Russell 1000® Index. The Fund invests primarily in equity securities that River Road believes are undervalued, including common stock, foreign securities (directly and through depositary receipts) and REITs. Value investing involves buying stocks that River Road believes are out of favor and/or undervalued in comparison to their peers or their prospects for growth. The Fund may also invest in common stock of companies with market capitalizations that are below that of the Russell 1000® Index at the time of acquisition, convertible securities, preferred securities, and PTPs, including, but not limited to, MLPs. The Fund may also invest in ETFs. Under normal conditions, the Fund intends to invest its assets in the equity securities of a limited number of issuers. The Fund is non-diversified.
The Subadviser’s investment philosophy is based upon its proprietary Absolute Value® approach, which seeks to generate attractive, sustainable, low volatility returns over the long term, with an emphasis on minimizing downside portfolio risk.
The Subadviser builds the Fund’s portfolio from the bottom up, making security-specific research central to the Subadviser’s process. At the core of the Subadviser’s Absolute Value® approach is a systematic method for assessing the ‘risk-to-reward’ characteristics of an investment. The goal of the research process is to formulate two outputs from which an investment decision is made – conviction rating (risk) and discount to value (reward). A stock’s conviction rating combined with its discount to value determine not only whether the stock qualifies for investment, but also how the stock will be sized within the Fund.
To seek to manage risk, the Subadviser employs a structured sell discipline.
The Fund may also invest in other convertible securities, derivatives, preferred stocks, royalty income trusts, Rule 144A securities, and U.S. government securities, including U.S. government agency securities.
As discussed above, the Fund may invest in ETFs. The Fund will indirectly bear the management, service and other fees of any ETF in which it invests in addition to its own expenses. Investments in ETFs have unique characteristics, including, but not limited to, the expense structure and additional expenses associated with investing in ETFs. The market value of ETF shares may differ from their net asset value per share.
Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities of large-capitalization companies. The Fund will provide shareholders with at least 60 days’ prior written notice of any change in this policy.
The Fund’s compliance with its investment limitations and requirements described in the Prospectus is usually determined at the time of investment. If such percentage limitation is complied with at the time of an investment, any subsequent change in percentage resulting from a change in values or assets, or a change in market capitalization of a company, will not constitute a violation of that limitation.

AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund (CONTINUED)
WHERE THIS FUND FITS AS PART OF YOUR ASSET ALLOCATION
This Fund may be appropriate as part of your overall investment allocation if you are:
Looking to gain exposure to U.S. large cap, value-oriented stocks.
Seeking long-term capital appreciation.
Willing to accept short-term volatility of returns.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE FUND'S EXPENSES AND PERFORMANCE
Under “Fees and Expenses of the Fund” in the Fund’s summary section, because Class N and Class I shares are authorized to pay up to 0.10% and 0.05% in shareholder servicing fees, respectively, Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses and Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements may fluctuate from year-to-year based on the actual amount of shareholder servicing fees incurred. Shareholder servicing fees paid by Class N and Class I shares are reflected in “Other Expenses” in the Annual Fund Operating Expenses table for such classes. Please see “Choosing A Share Class” for more information on the Fund’s shareholder servicing fees. The Fund’s annual operating expenses may vary throughout the period and from year to year. The Fund’s expenses for the current fiscal year may be different than the expenses listed in the Fund’s fee and expense table above.
As discussed under “Fees and Expenses of the Fund” in the Fund’s summary section, the Investment Manager has contractually agreed, through at least March 1, 2024, to waive management fees and/or pay or reimburse the Fund’s expenses in order to limit Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of taxes, interest (including interest incurred in connection with bank and custody overdrafts and in connection with securities sold short), shareholder servicing fees, distribution and service (12b-1) fees, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, dividends payable with respect to securities sold short, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) of the Fund to the annual rate of 0.60% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (this annual rate or such other annual rate that may be in effect from time to time, the “Expense Cap”), subject to later reimbursement by the Fund in certain circumstances. In general, for a period of up to 36 months after the date any amounts are paid, waived or reimbursed by the Investment Manager, the Investment Manager may recover such amounts from the Fund, provided that such repayment would not cause the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of the items noted in the parenthetical above) to exceed either (i) the Expense Cap in effect at the time such amounts were paid, waived or reimbursed, or (ii) the Expense Cap in effect at the time of such repayment by the Fund. The contractual expense limitation may only be terminated in the event the Investment Manager or a successor ceases to be the investment manager of the Fund or a successor fund, by mutual agreement between the Investment Manager and the AMG Funds I Board of Trustees or in the event of the Fund’s liquidation unless the Fund is reorganized or is a party to a merger in which the surviving entity is successor to the accounting and performance information of the Fund.
Under “Performance” in the Fund’s summary section, the performance information shown assumes that all dividend and capital gain distributions have been reinvested for the Fund and, where applicable, for the index shown in the table. Effective October 1, 2016, outstanding Investor Class and Institutional Class shares of the Fund were renamed Class N and Class I shares, respectively. The information in the bar chart is for Class N shares of the Fund. Class I shares would have similar annual returns as Class N shares because both classes are invested in the same portfolio of securities. However, because Class I shares are subject to different expenses than Class N shares, Class I share performance varies. The performance information for Class N shares of the Fund for periods prior to December 1, 2012, does not reflect the impact of the sales charges (loads) that were in effect until December 1, 2012. The performance information also reflects the impact of the Fund’s contractual expense limitations in effect during the periods shown. If the Investment Manager had not agreed to limit expenses, returns would have been lower.

The Fund will invest primarily in the securities and instruments as described in the summary section of the Fund’s Prospectus. This section contains additional information about the Fund’s investment strategies and the investment techniques utilized by the Fund’s Subadvisers in managing the Fund, and also additional information about the Fund's expenses and performance.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE FUND'S PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities of issuers located in China (People’s Republic of China and its Special Administrative Regions, Hong Kong and Macau) or issuers that are not located in China but derive a majority (over 50%) of their income from China. The Fund will provide shareholders with at least 60 days’ prior written notice of any change in this policy.
The Fund generally expects to sell a particular security when the Subadviser believes the security’s intrinsic value has been achieved and there will be no subsequent price upgrade or greater opportunities exist elsewhere. The Fund may also consider selling a particular security in other circumstances, including if the Subadviser believes a fundamental change in the company’s outlook occurs or there is a thesis breach, for example, if there are unexplained changes in management, accounting irregularities or corporate governance issues.
The Fund intends to gain exposure to equity securities of issuers located in China or issuers that are not located in China but derive a majority (over 50%) of their income from China through direct or indirect exposure. The Fund anticipates obtaining its exposure to the PRC through direct investments in equities listed on mainland China stock exchanges, such as the Shanghai and Shenzen stock exchanges, or via Hong Kong through the market access program through which foreign investors can deal in select China A Shares (Stock Connect). The Fund anticipates obtaining exposure indirectly by entering into arrangements with, and acquiring notes or similar equity linked securities (such as P-Notes and warrants) or instruments issued by, institutions that have obtained Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (“QFII”) status through which the Fund can gain exposure indirectly to the China A Share market as the underlying equity is a China A Share.
The Fund’s compliance with its investment limitations and requirements described in the Prospectus is usually determined at the time of investment. If such percentage limitation is complied with at the time of an investment, any subsequent change in percentage resulting from a change in values or assets, or a change in market capitalization of a company, will not constitute a violation of that limitation.
WHERE THIS FUND FITS AS PART OF YOUR ASSET ALLOCATION
In selecting a mutual fund, one should consider its overall fit within an asset allocation plan. This Fund may be appropriate as part of your overall investment allocation if you are:
Looking to gain exposure to equity securities of issuers in China.
Seeking long-term capital appreciation.
Willing to accept short-term volatility of returns.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE FUND'S EXPENSES AND PERFORMANCE
Under “Fees and Expenses of the Fund” in the Fund’s summary section, because Class N shares are authorized to pay up to 0.25% in shareholder servicing fees, Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses and Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements may fluctuate from year-to-year based on the actual amount of shareholder servicing fees incurred. Shareholder servicing fees paid by Class N shares are reflected in “Other Expenses” in the Annual Fund Operating Expenses table for such class.

fees. The Fund’s annual operating expenses may vary throughout the period and from year to year. The Fund’s expenses for the current fiscal year may be different than the expenses listed in the Fund’s fee and expense table above.
Under “Performance” in the Fund’s summary section, the performance information shown assumes that all dividend and capital gain distributions have been reinvested for the Fund and, where applicable, for the index shown in the table. Effective February 27, 2017, outstanding Class S shares of the Fund (formerly Service Class shares, which were renamed Class S shares on October 1, 2016) were renamed Class N shares. Effective October 1, 2016, outstanding Institutional Class shares of the Fund were renamed Class I shares. The information in the bar chart is for Class N shares of the Fund. Class I shares would have similar annual returns as Class N shares because both classes are invested in the same portfolio of securities. However, because Class I shares are subject to different expenses than Class N shares, Class I share performance varies. The performance information also reflects the impact of the Fund’s contractual expense limitations in effect during the periods shown. If the Investment Manager had not agreed to limit expenses, returns would have been lower. As a result of a reorganization that occurred on September 30, 2011, the Class I shares of the Fund assumed the ticker symbol of the former Managers Institutional Micro-Cap Fund (MIMFX). The Managers Institutional Micro-Cap Fund was not the performance or accounting survivor of the reorganization.
As discussed under “Fees and Expenses of the Fund” in the Fund’s summary section, the Investment Manager has contractually agreed, through at least March 1, 2024, to waive management fees and/or pay or reimburse the Fund’s expenses in order to limit Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of taxes, interest (including interest incurred in connection with bank and custody overdrafts and in connection with securities sold short), shareholder servicing fees, distribution and service (12b-1) fees, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, dividends payable with respect to securities sold short, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) of the Fund to the annual rate of 0.93% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (this annual rate or such other annual rate that may be in effect from time to time, the “Expense Cap”), subject to later reimbursement by the Fund in certain circumstances. In general, for a period of up to 36 months after the date any amounts are paid, waived or reimbursed by the Investment Manager, the Investment Manager may recover such amounts from the Fund, provided that such repayment would not cause the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursements (exclusive of the items noted in the parenthetical above) to exceed either (i) the Expense Cap in effect at the time such amounts were paid, waived or reimbursed, or (ii) the Expense Cap in effect at the time of such repayment by the Fund. The contractual expense limitation may only be terminated in the event the Investment Manager or a successor ceases to be the investment manager of the Fund or a successor fund, by mutual agreement between the Investment Manager and the AMG Funds I Board of Trustees or in the event of the Fund’s liquidation unless the Fund is reorganized or is a party to a merger in which the surviving entity is successor to the accounting and performance information of the Fund.

Additional Information About the Funds
Summary of the Funds’ Principal Risks
This section presents more detailed information about each Fund’s risks as described in the Fund’s summary section of the Prospectus. The risks are described in alphabetical order and not in the order of importance or potential exposure. The significance of any specific risk to an investment in a Fund will vary over time, depending on the composition of the Fund’s portfolio, market conditions, and other factors. You should read all of the risk information presented below carefully, because any one or more of these risks may result in losses to a Fund. A Fund may not be subject to all of the risks below, and not all Funds invest in the types of instruments mentioned. Please see each Fund’s summary section for a description of the Fund’s principal risks and the types of instruments in which the Fund invests. All Funds could be subject to additional risks because the types of investments they make and market conditions may change over time.
All investments involve some type and level of risk. There is the risk that you will lose money on your investment. Before you invest, please make sure that you have read, and understand, the risk factors that apply to the Funds.
convertible securities RISK
(AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund)
Convertible preferred stocks, which are convertible into shares of the issuer’s common stock and pay regular dividends, and convertible bonds, which are convertible into shares of the issuer’s common stock and bear interest, are subject to the risks of equity securities and fixed income securities. The lower the conversion premium, the more likely the price of the convertible security will follow the price of the underlying common stock. Conversely, higher premium convertible securities are more likely to exhibit the behavior of bonds because the likelihood of conversion is lower, which may cause their prices to fall as interest rates rise. The value of a convertible security is also affected by the credit quality of the issuer and any call provisions. There is the risk that the issuer of convertible preferred stock will not be able to make dividend payments or that the issuer of a convertible bond will not be able to make principal and/or interest payments.
CURRENCY RISK
(All Funds)
The value of foreign investments denominated in a foreign currency depends both upon the price of the securities and the exchange rate of the currency. Thus, the value of an investment in a foreign security will drop if the value of the foreign currency drops relative to the U.S. dollar. The values of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar may fluctuate in response to, among other factors, interest rate changes, intervention (or failure to intervene) by national governments, central banks, or supranational entities such as the International Monetary Fund, the imposition of currency controls, and other political or regulatory developments. Adverse currency fluctuations are an added risk to foreign investments. To the extent a Fund invests directly in non-U.S. currencies, or in securities that trade in, or receive revenues in, foreign currencies, it will be subject to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to the U.S. dollar, or, in the case of hedging positions, that
the U.S. dollar will decline in value relative to the currency being hedged. Currency rates may fluctuate significantly over short periods of time for a number of reasons, including changes in interest rates, intervention (or the failure to intervene) by U.S. or non-U.S. governments, central banks or supranational entities such as the International Monetary Fund, or by the imposition of currency controls or other political developments in the United States or abroad. As a result, a Fund’s exposure to non-U.S. currencies, including investments in foreign currency-denominated securities, may reduce the returns of the Fund. Currency risk can be reduced through diversification among currencies or through hedging with the use of foreign currency contracts.
EMERGING MARKETS RISK
(AMG Veritas China Fund, AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund)
Investments in emerging markets involve all of the risks of foreign investments (see Foreign Investment Risk), and also have additional risks. Such additional risks include the risk that markets in emerging market countries are typically less developed and less liquid than markets in developed countries and such markets are subject to increased economic, political, or regulatory uncertainties. The markets of developing countries may be more volatile than the markets of developed countries with more mature economies. Many emerging markets companies in the early stages of development are dependent on a small number of products and lack substantial capital reserves. In addition, emerging markets often have less developed legal and financial systems. These markets often have provided significantly higher or lower rates of return than developed markets and usually carry higher risks to investors than securities of companies in developed countries.
FOCUSED INVESTMENT RISK
(All Funds)
To the extent a Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in a relatively small number of securities, or a particular market, industry, group of industries, country, region, group of countries, asset class or sector, the Fund’s net asset value may be more volatile and the Fund may involve more risk than a fund that invests in a more diverse investment portfolio. Changes in the value of a single security or the impact of a single economic, political or regulatory occurrence may have a great adverse impact on a Fund’s net asset value.
Foreign Investment Risk
(All Funds)
Investments in foreign issuers (including those denominated in U.S. dollars), whether directly or indirectly, involve additional risks different from those associated with investments in U.S. issuers. There may be limited information available to investors, and foreign issuers are not generally subject to uniform accounting, auditing and financial standards and requirements like those applicable to U.S. issuers. Different accounting, corporate governance, regulatory, and market systems may cause foreign investments to be more volatile. The value of foreign investments may be adversely affected by changes in the political or social conditions, taxation, including

22AMG Funds

Additional Information About the Funds
Summary of the Funds’ Principal Risks (CONTINUED)
confiscatory or withholding taxes, diplomatic relations, embargoes, economic sanctions against a particular country or countries, organizations, entities and/or individuals, tariffs, expropriation, nationalization, limitation on the removal of funds or assets, or the establishment of exchange controls or other restrictions and tax regulations in foreign countries, which risks also apply to investments traded on a U.S. securities exchange that are issued by companies with significant exposure to foreign countries. Foreign investments trade with less frequency and volume than U.S. investments and, therefore, may have greater price volatility. In certain countries, legal remedies available to investors may be more limited than those available with regard to U.S. investments. In addition, just as foreign markets may respond to events differently from U.S. markets, foreign investments can perform differently from U.S. investments.
GEographic focus RISK
(AMG Veritas China Fund)
To the extent the Fund focuses its investments in a particular country, group of countries or geographic region, the Fund is particularly susceptible to economic, political, regulatory or other events or conditions affecting such countries or region. This may cause the Fund’s NAV to be more volatile than the NAV of a more geographically diversified fund and may result in losses.
Greater China. The Fund is particularly susceptible to risks in the Greater China region, which consists of Hong Kong, The People’s Republic of China, and Taiwan, among other countries. Economies in the Greater China region are dependent on the economies of other countries and can be significantly affected by currency fluctuations and increasing competition from other emerging economies in Asia with lower costs. Adverse events in any one country within the region may impact the other countries in the region or Asia as a whole. Markets in the Greater China region can experience significant volatility due to social, economic, regulatory and political uncertainties. Significant portions of the Chinese securities markets may become rapidly illiquid, as Chinese issuers have the ability to suspend the trading of their equity securities, and have shown a willingness to exercise that option in response to market volatility and other events. U.S. or foreign government restrictions or intervention could negatively affect the implementation of the Fund’s investment strategies, for example by precluding the Fund from making certain investments or causing the Fund to sell investments at disadvantageous times. Changes in Chinese government policy and economic growth rates could significantly affect local markets and the entire Greater China region. China has yet to develop comprehensive securities, corporate, or commercial laws, its market is relatively new and less developed. Export growth continues to be a major driver of China’s economic growth. As a result, a reduction in spending on Chinese products and services, the institution of additional tariffs or other trade barriers, including as a result of heightened trade tensions between China and the United States, or a downturn in any of the economies of China’s key trading partners may have an adverse impact on the Chinese economy.
HIGH cash balance RISK
(AMG Veritas China Fund, AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund)
When a Fund has a significant cash balance for a sustained period, the benefit to the Fund of any market upswing may likely be reduced, and the Fund’s performance may be adversely affected.
LARGE-CAPITALIZATION STOCK RISK
(All Funds)
Large-capitalization companies tend to compete in mature product markets and do not typically experience the level of sustained growth of smaller companies and companies competing in less mature product markets. Also, large-capitalization companies may be unable to respond as quickly as smaller companies to competitive challenges or changes in business, product, financial, or other market conditions. For these and other reasons, a fund that invests in large-capitalization companies may underperform other stock funds (such as funds that focus on the stocks of small- and medium-capitalization companies) when stocks of large-capitalization companies are out of favor.
LIQUIDITY RISK
(AMG Veritas China Fund, AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund)
Liquidity risk is the risk that a Fund may not be able to dispose of investments or close out derivatives transactions readily at favorable times or prices or may have to sell them at a loss. For example, investments in derivatives, non-U.S. investments, restricted securities, securities having small market capitalizations, and securities having substantial market and/or credit and counterparty risk tend to involve greater liquidity risk. Additionally, the market for certain investments may become illiquid under adverse market or economic conditions independent of any specific adverse changes in the conditions of a particular issuer, such as a rising interest rate environment. In such cases, a Fund, due to limitations on investments in illiquid securities and the difficulty in purchasing and selling such securities or instruments, may decline in value or be unable to achieve its desired level of exposure to a certain issuer or sector. The values of illiquid investments are often more volatile than the values of more liquid investments.
ManagEment RISK
(All Funds)
The Funds are subject to management risk because they are actively managed investment portfolios. Management risk is the chance that security selection or focus on securities in a particular style, market sector or group of companies will cause a Fund to incur losses or underperform relative to its benchmarks or other funds with a similar investment objective. Each Fund’s Subadviser will apply its investment techniques and risk analyses in making investment decisions for each Fund, but there can be no guarantee that these will produce the desired result. To the extent a Fund’s Subadviser uses quantitative analyses or models, any imperfections, errors or limitations in such analyses or models could affect the Fund’s performance or the ability of the Subadviser to implement its strategies. In particular, with respect to limitations in such analyses or models, the

23AMG Funds

Additional Information About the Funds
Summary of the Funds’ Principal Risks (CONTINUED)
analyses and models may make simplifying assumptions that limit their effectiveness, may appear to explain prior market data but fail to predict future market events, and may use data that is inaccurate or does not include the most recent information about a company or a security.
MARKET RISK
(All Funds)
Market prices of investments held by a Fund may fall rapidly or unpredictably and will rise and fall due to economic, political, or market conditions or perceptions, government actions, geopolitical events, or in response to events that affect particular industries, geographies, or companies. The value of your investment could go up or down depending on market conditions and other factors including terrorism, war, natural disasters and the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, including epidemics or pandemics such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Equity investments generally have greater price volatility than fixed income investments, although under certain market conditions fixed income investments may have comparable or greater price volatility. Since foreign investments trade on different markets, which have different supply and demand characteristics, their prices are not as closely linked to the U.S. markets. Foreign securities markets have their own market risks, and they may be more or less volatile than U.S. markets and may move in different directions. A Fund’s performance may also be negatively impacted by the commencement, continuation or ending of government policies and economic stimulus programs, changes in monetary policy, increases or decreases in interest rates, or other factors or events that affect the financial markets.
Certain instruments held by a Fund may pay an interest rate based on the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), which is the offered rate for short-term loans between certain major international banks. ICE Benchmark Administration, the administrator of LIBOR, ceased publication of most LIBOR settings on a representative basis at the end of 2021 and is expected to cease publication of a majority of U.S. dollar LIBOR settings on a representative basis after June 30, 2023. In addition, global regulators have announced that, with limited exceptions, no new LIBOR-based contracts should be entered into after the end of 2021. Actions by regulators have resulted in the establishment of alternative reference rates to LIBOR in most major currencies. The transition away from LIBOR may result in, among other things, increased volatility or illiquidity in markets for instruments based on LIBOR and changes in the value of some LIBOR-based investments or the effectiveness of related transactions such as hedges, particularly insofar as the documentation governing such instruments does not include “fall back” provisions addressing the transition from LIBOR. Any such effects of the transition away from LIBOR, as well as other unforeseen effects, could result in losses to a Fund and may adversely affect a Fund’s performance or net asset value.
Master Limited partnership risk
(AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund)
Master limited partnerships are limited partnerships in which ownership interests are publicly traded. Master limited partnerships typically own interests in properties or businesses related to the oil and gas industries, although they may own other types of investments. Investments in master limited partnerships are subject to similar risks to those associated with the specific industry or industries in which the partnership invests, such as the risk of investing in the real estate or oil and gas industries. In addition, investments in master limited partnerships are subject to the risks of investing in a partnership, including limited control and voting rights on matters affecting the partnership and fewer investor protections compared to corporations.
Subject to any future regulatory guidance to the contrary, any distribution of income attributable to qualified publicly traded partnership income from the Fund’s investment in a PTP, including a master limited partnership, will ostensibly not qualify for the deduction that would be available to a non-corporate shareholder were the shareholder to own such master limited partnership directly. If such distributions do not so qualify, a non-corporate shareholder will generally be subject to a higher effective tax rate on any such amounts received from the Fund compared to the effective rate applicable to any qualified publicly traded partnership income the shareholder would receive if the shareholder invested directly in a master limited partnership.
NON-DIVERSIFIED FUND RISK
(All Funds)
Funds that are non-diversified can invest a greater percentage of their assets in a single issuer or a group of issuers, and, as a result, may be subject to greater credit, market, and other risks than a diversified fund. The poor performance by a single issuer may have a greater impact on the performance of a non-diversified fund than a diversified fund. A non-diversified fund’s shares tend to be more volatile than shares of a diversified fund and are more susceptible to the risks of focusing investments in a small number of issuers or industries, and the risks of a single economic, political or regulatory occurrence. Notwithstanding the Fund’s status as a “non-diversified” investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”), the Fund intends to qualify as a regulated investment company accorded favorable tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Internal Revenue Code”), which imposes its own diversification requirements that are less restrictive than the requirements applicable to “diversified” investment companies under the 1940 Act. The Fund’s intention to qualify as a regulated investment company may limit its pursuit of its investment strategy and its investment strategy could limit its ability to so qualify.
Participatory notes risk
(AMG Veritas China Fund)
An investment in participatory notes is subject to market risk, which is the risk that the market value of the underlying securities could decline as a result of business, economic, political or other factors,

24AMG Funds

Additional Information About the Funds
Summary of the Funds’ Principal Risks (CONTINUED)
resulting in a decline in the value of the notes. The performance results of participatory notes may not exactly replicate the performance of the underlying securities. An investment in participatory notes is also subject to counterparty risk, relating to the non-U.S. bank or broker-dealer that issues the participatory notes, and may be subject to liquidity risk.
POLITICAL RISK
(AMG Veritas China Fund, AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund)
Changes in the general political and social environment of a country can have substantial effects on the value of investments exposed to that country. This may include, among other factors, government instability, poor socioeconomic conditions, corruption, internal and external conflict, changes in the regulatory environment, and changes in sovereign health. High political risk can have a negative impact on the economic welfare of a country.
prc tax Risk
(AMG Veritas China Fund)
The application of the tax laws and regulations of the PRC to income, including capital gains, derived from certain investments of the Fund remains unclear, and may well continue to evolve, possibly with retroactive effect. Any taxes imposed on the investments of the Fund pursuant to such laws and regulations will reduce the Fund’s overall returns.
pTp Risk
(AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund)
Investing in PTPs (including master limited partnerships) involves special risks in addition to those typically associated with publicly traded companies. PTPs are exposed to the risks of their underlying assets, which in many cases includes the same types of risks as energy and natural resources companies, such as commodity pricing risk, supply and demand risk and depletion and exploration risk. PTPs are also subject to capital markets risk, which is the risk that they may be unable to raise capital to execute their growth strategies. The Fund’s ability to make investments in certain PTPs, including master limited partnerships, can be limited by the Fund’s intention to qualify as a regulated investment company, and if the Fund does not appropriately limit such investments or if such investments are recharacterized for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Fund’s status as a regulated investment company may be jeopardized.
Subject to any future regulatory guidance to the contrary, any distribution of income attributable to qualified publicly traded partnership income from the Fund’s investment in a PTP, will ostensibly not qualify for the deduction that would be available to a non-corporate shareholder were the shareholder to own such PTP directly. If such distributions do not so qualify, a non-corporate shareholder will generally be subject to a higher effective tax rate on any such amounts received from the Fund compared to the effective rate applicable to any qualified publicly traded partnership income the shareholder would receive if the shareholder invested directly in a PTP.
REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY RISK
(AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund)
The stock prices of companies in the real estate industry, including REITs, are typically sensitive to changes in real estate values, property taxes, interest rates, cash flow of underlying real estate assets, occupancy rates, government regulations affecting zoning, land use, and rents, as well as the management skill and creditworthiness of the issuer. Companies in the real estate industry may also be subject to liabilities under environmental and hazardous waste laws that could negatively affect their value. These factors may reduce the value of the Fund's investments in REITs and the real estate industry. REITs depend generally on their ability to generate cash flow to make distributions to shareholders or unitholders, which may be subject to defaults by borrowers and self-liquidations, and some REITs may have limited diversification. REITs are also subject to the risk of failing to qualify for favorable tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code. Distributions by the Fund to its shareholders that the Fund properly reports as “section 199A dividends,” as defined and subject to certain conditions described in the SAI, are treated as qualified REIT dividends in the hands of non-corporate shareholders. See “Certain U.S. Federal Income Tax Matters – REITs” in the SAI for further details.
SECTOR RISK
(AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund)
Issuers and companies that are in similar industry sectors may be similarly affected by particular economic or market events. As a result, the Fund’s performance could be more volatile than the performance of a fund that is more diversified across industry sectors. Stocks in the communication services and financials sectors may comprise a significant portion of the AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund’s portfolio. Unique risks of the financials sector include, but are not limited to, government regulation uncertainty, yield curve fluctuation, asset flow fluctuation, and capital market fluctuations. The communication services sector is subject to government regulation and can be significantly affected by intense competition and technology changes, which may make the products and services of certain companies obsolete. Companies in the communication services sector may be more susceptible to cybersecurity issues, such as hacking, theft of proprietary or consumer information, or disruptions in service, than companies in other industries. Companies in the communication services sector may encounter distressed cash flows due to the need to commit substantial capital to develop new products and services that utilize new technology or to meet increasing competition.
SMALL- AND MID-CAPITALIZATIOn stock RISK
(AMG Veritas China Fund, AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund)
The stocks of small- and mid-capitalization companies may involve more risk than the stocks of larger, more established companies because they often have greater price volatility, lower trading volume, and less liquidity. These companies tend to have smaller revenues, narrower product lines, less management depth and experience, smaller shares of their product or service markets, fewer financial resources, less proven track records, and less competitive

25AMG Funds

strength than larger companies. A fund that invests in small- and mid-capitalization companies may underperform other stock funds (such as large-company stock funds) when stocks of small- and mid-capitalization companies are out of favor.
Stock Connect Risk
(AMG Veritas China Fund)
Trading in China A-Shares through Stock Connect is subject to certain restrictions and risks. Stock Connect is subject to sudden changes in quota limitations, differences in trading days between the PRC and Stock Connect, operational risk, and regulatory and taxation risk. Securities listed on Stock Connect may lose purchase eligibility, which could adversely affect the Fund’s performance. Trading through Stock Connect is subject to trading, clearance, and settlement procedures that may continue to develop as the program matures. Any changes in laws, regulations and policies applicable to Stock Connect may affect China A-Share prices. These risks are heightened by the underdeveloped state of the PRC's investment and banking systems in general.
VALUE STOCK RISK
(All Funds)
Value stocks present the risk that a stock may decline in price or never reach what the Subadviser believes is its full market value, either because the market fails to recognize what the Subadviser considers to be the company’s true business value or because the Subadviser overestimates the company’s true business value. Companies that issue value securities may have experienced adverse business developments or may be subject to special risks that have caused their securities to be out of favor. Value stocks may underperform growth stocks and stocks in other broad style categories (and the stock market as a whole) during given periods.
VAriable Interest Entity RISK
(AMG Veritas China Fund)
The Fund may gain investment exposure to certain Chinese companies through VIEs. A VIE structure enables foreign investors, such as the Fund, to obtain investment exposure to a Chinese company in situations in which the Chinese government has limited or prohibited non-Chinese ownership of such company. In such an arrangement, a China-based company typically establishes a non-operating company in another jurisdiction outside of China, such as the Cayman Islands. That non-operating company (the VIE) enters into contracts with the China-based company that give the VIE a claim on the China-based company’s profits and control of the assets that belong to the China-based company. The VIE then issues
shares on a non-Chinese exchange, such as the New York Stock Exchange or the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Non-Chinese investors hold stock in the VIE rather than directly in the China-based company. This arrangement allows U.S. investors to obtain economic exposure to the China-based company through contractual means rather than through formal equity ownership. The contractual arrangements in place with the China-based company provide limited ability for the VIE to exercise control over the China-based company and the China-based company’s actions may negatively impact the investment value of the VIE. Control over a VIE may also be jeopardized if a natural person who holds the equity interest in the VIE breaches the terms of the contractual arrangements, is subject to legal proceedings, or if any physical instruments such as chops and seals are used without authorization.
VIEs are a common industry practice and well known to officials and regulators in China; however, until recently, VIEs are not formally recognized under Chinese law. However, in late 2021, the Chinese government signaled its interest in implementing filing requirement rules that would both affirm the legality of VIE structures and regulate them. How these filing requirements will operate in practice, and what will be required for approval, remains unclear. While there is optimism that these actions will reduce uncertainty over Chinese actions on VIEs, there is also caution given how unresolved the process is. Until these rules are finalized, and potentially afterwards depending on how they are implemented, there remains significant uncertainty associated with VIE investments. If the Chinese government were to determine that the contractual arrangements establishing the VIE structure did not comply with Chinese law or regulations, the Chinese operating company could be subject to penalties, revocation of its business and operating license, or forfeiture of ownership interests. Recently, the government of China provided new guidance to, and placed restrictions on, China-based companies raising capital outside of China, including through VIE structures. Investors in VIEs face uncertainty about future actions by the government of China that could significantly affect a Chinese company’s financial performance and the enforceability of the VIE shell company’s contractual arrangements. Under extreme circumstances, China might prohibit the existence of VIEs, or limit a VIE’s ability to pass through economic and governance rights to foreign individuals and entities. If the Chinese government takes action adversely affecting VIEs, the market value of the Funds’ associated portfolio holdings would likely suffer significant, detrimental, and possibly permanent consequences, which could result in substantial investment losses.

Other Important Information About the Funds and their Investment Strategies and Risks
In addition to the principal investment strategies described in this Prospectus, the Funds may also make other types of investments, and, therefore, may be subject to other risks, which the Investment Manager does not currently consider to be principal risks of the Funds. Some of these risks are described in the Funds' Statement of
Additional Information dated March 1, 2023, as supplemented from time to time (the “SAI”).

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES
Each Fund’s investment objective may be changed without shareholder approval and without prior notice.
TEMPORARY DEFENSIVE MEASURES
From time to time, each Fund may invest a portion of its assets in money market securities, cash, or cash equivalents as a temporary defensive measure in response to adverse market, economic, political or other conditions. These temporary defensive measures may be inconsistent with each Fund’s investment objective and principal investment strategies. Each Fund may not be able to achieve its stated investment objective while taking these defensive measures.
PORTFOLIO TURNOVER
Each Fund may sell any security when it believes the sale is consistent with the Fund’s investment strategies and in the Fund’s best interest to do so. This may result in active and frequent trading
of portfolio securities. A portfolio turnover rate greater than 100% would indicate that the Fund sold and replaced the entire value of its securities holdings during the previous one-year period. Higher portfolio turnover may adversely affect Fund performance by increasing Fund transaction costs and may increase your tax liability.
PORTFOLIO HOLDINGS
A description of the policies and procedures with respect to the disclosure of each Fund’s portfolio securities is available in the Funds' SAI, which is available on the Funds' website at www.amgfunds.com.

Fund Management
Each Fund is a series of AMG Funds I, a Massachusetts business trust (the “Trust”). The Trust is part of the AMG Funds Family of Funds, a mutual fund family comprised of different funds, each having distinct investment management objectives, strategies, risks, and policies.
The Investment Manager, located at 680 Washington Boulevard, Suite 500, Stamford, Connecticut 06901, is a subsidiary of Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. (“AMG”), located at 777 South Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach, Florida 33401. The Investment Manager serves as investment manager and administrator to the Funds and is responsible for the Funds’ overall administration and operations. The Investment Manager also monitors the performance, security holdings, and investment strategies of the Subadviser to each Fund. The Distributor, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Investment Manager, serves as the Funds’ distributor. Except for distribution and shareholder service (12b-1) fees, the Distributor receives no compensation from the Funds for its services as distributor.
Pursuant to an exemptive order issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), the Funds participate in a manager of managers structure whereby the Investment Manager serves as the investment manager of the Funds and selects and recommends to the Funds’ Board of Trustees investment subadvisers to manage the Funds’ investment portfolio. Under the terms of this exemptive order, the Investment Manager is able, subject to certain conditions and oversight by the Funds’ Board of Trustees but without shareholder approval, to hire or change the contract terms of subadvisers for the Funds. In addition, subject to approval by the SEC of an amendment to the Funds’ exemptive order, the Funds may disclose fees paid to subadvisers on an aggregate, rather than individual, basis. The Investment Manager, subject to oversight by the Trustees, has ultimate responsibility to oversee the subadvisers
and recommend their hiring, termination, and replacement. Shareholders of the Funds continue to have the right to terminate such subadvisory agreements for the Funds at any time by a vote of a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the Funds.

29AMG Funds

Shareholder Guide
Your Account
You may invest in each Fund by purchasing Class N or Class I shares. Each class of shares is subject to different types and levels of expenses and minimum initial investment amounts, as described below.
The Class N shares of AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund and AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund are subject to the expenses of a 12b-1 plan of distribution adopted by the Board of Trustees, and certain classes of shares also bear shareholder servicing fees. Because each class bears fees and expenses in different amounts, the NAV per share of the classes may differ. In all other material respects, the Class N and Class I shares are the same, each share representing a proportionate interest in a Fund.
Each Fund and class of shares is subject to a minimum initial investment amount, as described below.
Your purchase or redemption of Fund shares is based on each class’s share price. The price at which you purchase and redeem your shares is based on the NAV per share next determined after your purchase or redemption order is received on each day the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) is open for trading. The NAV per share of each class of shares of a Fund is equal to the class’s net worth (assets minus liabilities) divided by the number of shares outstanding for that class. The NAV for each class is calculated at the close of regular business of the NYSE, usually 4:00 p.m. New York time. Purchase orders received after 4:00 p.m. from certain processing organizations that have entered into contractual arrangements with the Funds will also receive that day’s offering price provided that the purchase orders the processing organization transmits to the Funds were received by the processing organization in proper form before 4:00 p.m. Likewise, redemption orders received after 4:00 p.m. from certain processing organizations that have entered into contractual arrangements with the Funds will also be redeemed at the NAV computed that day provided that the orders the processing organization transmits to the Funds were received by the processing organization in proper form before 4:00 p.m.
Current net asset values per share for each Fund are available on the Funds’ website at www.amgfunds.com.
Investments traded in foreign markets may trade when the NYSE is closed. Those investments are generally valued at the closing of the exchange where they are primarily traded. Foreign securities may
trade on days when a Fund is not open for business, thus affecting the value of a Fund’s assets on days when Fund shareholders may not be able to buy or sell Fund shares.
FAIR VALUE POLICY
Each Fund’s investments are generally valued based on market quotations provided by third-party pricing services. Under certain circumstances, a Fund investment will be priced based on an evaluation of its fair value, under the general supervision of the Board of Trustees. Each Fund may use the fair value of a portfolio investment to calculate its NAV in the event that the market quotation, price or market based valuation for the portfolio investment is not deemed to be readily available or otherwise not determinable pursuant to the Funds’ valuation procedures, if the Investment Manager believes the quotation, price or market based valuation to be unreliable, or in certain other circumstances.
Portfolio investments that trade primarily on foreign markets are priced based upon the market quotation of such securities as of the close of their respective principal markets. Unless a foreign equity security is fair valued, if there are no reported sales for such security on the valuation date, it may be valued at the last quoted bid price or the mean between the last quoted bid and ask prices. Securities held in a Fund that can be fair valued by the applicable fair value pricing service are fair valued on each business day provided that each individual price exceeds a pre-established confidence level.
Each Fund may invest in securities that may be thinly traded. The Board of Trustees has adopted procedures to adjust prices of securities that are judged to be stale so that they reflect fair value. An investment valued on the basis of its fair value may be valued at a price higher or lower than available market quotations.
Pursuant to Rule 2a-5 under the 1940 Act, the Funds’ Board has designated the Funds Investment Manager as the FundsValuation Designee” to perform the Funds fair value determinations, which are subject to Board oversight and certain reporting and other requirements intended to ensure that the Board receives the information it needs to oversee the Investment Manager’s fair value determinations.

Choosing a Share Class
As described below, investors can choose among the following share classes when investing in the Funds:
Class N
Class I
The classes differ in expense structure and eligibility requirements. When choosing a share class, it is important to consider these three factors:
The amount you plan to invest;
Your investment objectives; and
The expenses and charges for the class.
We recommend that you discuss your investment goals and choices with your financial professional to determine which share class is right for you.
Class N Shares
All Funds
Class N shares have no up-front sales charges or deferred sales charges. Your entire amount invested purchases Fund shares at the Class N’s NAV. Shareholders of AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund may bear shareholder servicing fees of up to 0.10% and

30AMG Funds

Shareholder Guide
Choosing a Share Class (CONTINUED)
shareholders of AMG Veritas China Fund may bear shareholder servicing fees of up to 0.25% for shareholder servicing provided by financial intermediaries, such as broker-dealers (including fund supermarket platforms), banks, and trust companies. Shareholders of AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund do not pay shareholder servicing fees. See “Investing Through an Intermediary” below for more information on shareholder servicing fees paid to financial intermediaries. Shareholders of Class N shares of AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund and AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund also pay distribution (12b-1) fees of 0.25%. See “Distribution and Service (12b-1) Fees” below for more information on 12b-1 fees.
Class I Shares
All Funds
Class I shares have no up-front sales charges or deferred sales charges. Your entire amount invested purchases Fund shares at the Class I’s NAV. Shareholders of AMG River Road Large Cap Value
Select Fund may bear shareholder servicing fees of up to 0.05% for shareholder servicing provided by financial intermediaries, such as broker-dealers (including fund supermarket platforms), banks, and trust companies. Shareholders of AMG Veritas China Fund and AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund do not pay shareholder servicing fees. See “Investing Through an Intermediary” below for more information on shareholder servicing fees paid to financial intermediaries. The Class I shares do not pay distribution (12b-1) fees. Shareholders who transact in Class I shares through a financial intermediary may be required to pay a commission to the financial intermediary for effecting such transactions.

Investing Through an Intermediary
If you invest through a third party such as a bank, broker-dealer (including through a fund supermarket platform), trust company or other financial intermediary (each of the above, a “Financial Intermediary”), rather than directly with the Funds, certain purchase and redemption policies, fees, and minimum investment amounts may differ from those described in this Prospectus. Many, if not all, of these Financial Intermediaries may receive various forms of compensation in connection with the sale of Fund shares and/or the servicing of shareholder accounts. Such compensation from the Funds may include receipt of distribution (12b-1) fees and/or shareholder servicing fees. For more information on 12b-1 fees, see “Distribution and Service (12b-1) Fees” below. Shareholder servicing fees are paid out of the assets of the Class N shares of AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund and AMG Veritas China Fund and the Class I shares of AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund on an ongoing basis for the receipt of certain shareholder services from Financial Intermediaries (including through fund supermarket platforms), including account maintenance, recordkeeping or sub-accounting, forwarding communications to shareholders, providing shareholders with account statements, transaction processing and customer liaison services, and will increase the cost to shareholders who invest in Class N and Class I shares of such funds. These payments are made pursuant to written agreements between the Financial Intermediaries and the Investment Manager, the Distributor and/or a Fund.
Class I shares, which do not have any front-end sales charge, contingent deferred sales charge, or other asset-based fee for sales or distribution, such as a distribution (12b-1) fee, or, with respect to AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund and AMG Veritas China Fund, bear shareholder servicing fees, may be available on brokerage platforms
of Financial Intermediaries that have agreements with the Distributor to offer such shares solely when acting as your agent. If you transact in Class I shares through such a Financial Intermediary, you may be required to pay a commission and/or other forms of compensation to the Financial Intermediary for effecting such transactions. Shares of the Funds are available in other share classes that have different fees and expenses.
The Investment Manager, the Subadviser and/or the Distributor may pay additional compensation (directly out of their own resources and not as an expense of a Fund) to certain affiliated or unaffiliated Financial Intermediaries in connection with the sale, including distribution, marketing and promotional services, or retention of Fund shares and/or shareholder servicing. To the extent permitted by SEC and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) rules and other applicable laws and regulations, the Investment Manager, the Subadviser and the Distributor may make other payments or allow other promotional incentives to Financial Intermediaries. This compensation may provide such Financial Intermediaries with an incentive to favor sales of shares of the Funds over other investment options. Any such payments may be substantial; however, they will be made by the Investment Manager, the Subadviser and/or the Distributor, as applicable, not by the Funds or their shareholders, and will not change the NAV or the price of the Funds’ shares.
You can ask your Financial Intermediary for information about any payments it receives from the Investment Manager, the Subadviser and/or the Distributor and any services it provides, as well as about fees and/or commissions it charges and which share class(es) you are eligible to purchase.

31AMG Funds

Shareholder Guide
Distribution and Service (12b-1) Fees
AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund and AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund have adopted a Plan of Distribution under Rule 12b-1 (a 12b-1 Plan) for Class N shares that allows the Funds to pay the Distributor and Financial Intermediaries for selling and distributing Class N shares (for example, for sales, marketing and promotional activities and to cover related expenses) and for providing
service to shareholders of Class N shares. Because 12b-1 fees are deducted from the net assets of Class N shares on an ongoing basis, they increase the cost of your investment the longer you hold it and will result in lower total returns and may end up costing you more than other types of sales charges.

Transaction Policies
OPENING YOUR ACCOUNT
You can set up your account either through a registered financial professional or on your own, by submitting your completed application to the Funds with your initial investment. Your account application must be in “good order” before we can process it; that is, the application must contain all of the information and documentation requested. Failing to provide what we request may delay the purchase date or cause us to reject your application and return your investment monies.
To help the U.S. government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires the Trust to verify identifying information provided by each investor in its application, and the Trust may require further identifying documentation. The Trust also must maintain and update identifying information and conduct monitoring to identify and report suspicious transactions. If the Trust is unable to verify the information shortly after your account is opened or within a reasonable amount of time after a request for updated information, the account may be closed and your shares redeemed at their net asset value at the time of the redemption.
BUYING AND SELLING Fund SHARES
You may buy shares of the Funds once you set up an account. You also may buy additional shares or sell your shares any day that the NYSE is open for business. When you buy or sell Fund shares, the price is the NAV per share that is calculated after we receive your order in proper form. Each class's NAV is calculated at the close of regular trading on the NYSE, usually 4:00 p.m. New York time.
PROCESSING ORDERS
The Funds typically expect to pay out redemption proceeds on the next business day after a redemption request is received in good order if redemption proceeds are sent by wire. If redemption proceeds are sent by check via express mail or Automated Clearing House (“ACH”), the Funds typically expect to pay out redemption proceeds within two business days after a redemption request is received in good order. If redemption proceeds are sent by check via regular mail, the Funds typically expect to pay out redemption proceeds within five to seven business days after a redemption request is received in good order.
If you sell shares of the Funds, the Funds will send your check to the address we have on file for your account. A request to send a check to any other address or a third party requires a signature medallion guarantee. If the sale of your shares follows a purchase by check, the Funds may hold the proceeds of your sale for up to 15 calendar days to ensure that the check has cleared. ACH transactions are also subject to a 15 calendar day holding period. A Fund may delay
sending out sales proceeds for up to seven days. This usually applies to very large sales without notice, excessive trading, or during unusual market conditions.
Under normal circumstances, each Fund expects to meet redemption requests by using cash or cash equivalents in its portfolio and/or selling portfolio assets to generate cash. A Fund also may pay redemption proceeds using cash obtained through borrowing arrangements (including interfund lending) that may be available from time to time.
A Fund may pay all or a portion of redemption proceeds with in-kind distributions of portfolio securities when such action is in the best interest of the Fund. For example, a shareholder may request a redemption in-kind to avoid any disruption in market exposure, or a redemption may be so relatively large that a redemption in-kind is most appropriate. The securities received as payment remain subject to market and other risks until they are sold and such sales may result in transaction costs, such as brokerage fees. A redeeming shareholder may receive less for them than the price at which they were valued for purposes of the redemption. In addition, a redemption is generally a taxable event for shareholders, regardless of whether the redemption is satisfied in cash or in-kind.
During periods of deteriorating or stressed market conditions, when an increased portion of a Fund’s portfolio may be comprised of less-liquid investments, or during extraordinary or emergency circumstances, the Fund may be more likely to pay redemption proceeds with cash obtained through short-term borrowing arrangements (if available) or by giving you securities.

The minimum initial and additional investment amounts may be waived for investments by current or retired officers and Trustees of the Trust and other funds of the AMG Funds Family of Funds, as well as their family members; current or retired officers, directors, and employees of AMG and affiliated companies of AMG; the immediate family members of any such officer, director, or employee (including parents, grandparents, spouses, children, grandchildren, siblings, fathers/mothers-in-law, sisters/brothers-in-law, daughters/sons-in-law, nieces, nephews, and domestic partners); a trust or plan established primarily for the benefit of any of the foregoing persons; certain omnibus accounts, mutual fund advisory platforms and fee-based investment platforms via a custodian or clearing firm (Class I shares); and certain qualified retirement plans, such as 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans and 457 plans. Additionally, a Fund or the Distributor may, in its discretion, waive the minimum initial or additional investment amounts at any time. With respect to AMG River Road Large Cap Value Select Fund and AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund, the minimum additional investment amount for Class I shares shall be waived for investments by accounts established prior to March 1, 2006 (the date on which each Fund’s existing share class was redesignated as Institutional Class shares, which was subsequently redesignated as Class I shares).
OTHER PURCHASE INFORMATION
Subject to the approval of the Trust and in accordance with the Trust’s policies and procedures, an investor may purchase shares of a Fund with securities that are eligible for purchase by the Fund (consistent with the Fund’s investment policies and restrictions) and that have a value that is readily ascertainable and determined in accordance with the Trust’s valuation policies. These transactions will be effected only if the Investment Manager or the Subadviser intends to retain the security in a Fund as an investment. Assets purchased by a Fund in such transactions will be valued in generally the same manner as they would be valued for purposes of pricing the Fund’s shares, if such assets were included in the Fund’s assets at the time of purchase. The Trust reserves the right to amend or terminate this practice at any time.
SIGNATURE GUARANTEE
If you are selling $100,000 or more worth of Class N or Class I shares, you will need to provide a Fund with a medallion guarantee, an imprint that verifies the authenticity of your signature. The medallion program offers shareholders added protection because it guarantees that the person who signs the transaction request is the actual shareholder or legally authorized representative.
We accept medallion imprints only from a guarantor institution such as a bank, broker-dealer, credit union, national securities exchange, or savings association that is a recognized participant of the Securities Transfer Agents Medallion Program (STAMP) 2000. When requesting a medallion signature guarantee from a guarantor institution, please be sure it is issued in an amount that covers your planned transaction. A notary public cannot provide a signature guarantee.
UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS
The Funds are not responsible for any losses due to unauthorized transactions as long as the Funds follow reasonable security procedures designed to verify your identity. It is your responsibility to review and verify the accuracy of your confirmation statements immediately after you receive them. If you do not want the ability to
sell and exchange shares by telephone or the Internet, call the Funds at 800.548.4539 for instructions.
LIMITATIONS ON THE FUNDS
The Funds may restrict or limit certain transactions, including, but not limited to, the following examples:
Redeem your account if its value (i) falls below $500 for Class N shares and $25,000 for Class I shares due to redemptions you make, or (ii) is below $100, but, in each case, not until after a Fund gives you at least 60 days’ notice and the opportunity to increase your account balance to the minimum account balance amount;
Suspend sales or postpone payments when the NYSE is closed for any reason other than its usual weekend or holiday closings or when the SEC restricts trading;
Change the minimum required investment amounts;
Refuse a buy order for any reason, including your failure to submit a properly completed application;
Refuse an exchange request for any person or group if a Fund determines that the request could adversely affect the Fund, for example, if the person or group has engaged in excessive trading. (See “Limiting Trades” below.) This determination is at the Investment Manager’s discretion, based on a case-by-case analysis consistent with the Trust’s policies and procedures regarding frequent trading; and
End or limit the exchange privilege policy after giving 60 days’ advance notice to shareholders or impose fees in connection with exchanges or sales.
The Funds or the Funds’ transfer agent may temporarily delay for more than seven days the disbursement of redemption proceeds from the account of a “Specified Adult” (as that term is defined in FINRA Rule 2165) based on a reasonable belief that financial exploitation

How to Buy or Sell Shares (CONTINUED)
of the Specified Adult has occurred, is occurring, has been attempted, or will be attempted, subject to certain conditions.
In connection with the Trust’s anti-money laundering efforts, the Trust also may redeem Fund shares at their net asset value and close a shareholder’s account if a shareholder fails to timely provide the Trust with any requested documentation or information, the Trust is unable to verify such documentation or information within a reasonable amount of time, or the Trust is otherwise required by law to redeem Fund shares.
FREQUENT TRADING POLICY
The Board of Trustees of the Trust has adopted policies and procedures reasonably designed to prevent frequent trading in shares of the Funds. Frequent trading may result from an effort by a shareholder to engage in “market timing.” These activities may disrupt management of the Funds' portfolios, increase the Funds' expenses, and have a negative impact on the Funds' performance. In addition, AMG Veritas China Fund and AMG Veritas Global Focus Fund may be subject to additional risks of frequent trading activities because of the potential for time-zone arbitrage relating to the foreign and emerging market portfolio securities held by the Funds. As a result, the Funds may be a target for investors that seek to capitalize on price arbitrage opportunities. There may be additional risks due to frequent trading activities. As described previously, the Funds have adopted procedures to minimize these risks.
Monitoring Trades
To help prevent frequent trading, the Investment Manager monitors the trading activities of Fund accounts on a daily basis, including large accounts maintained directly with the Funds' transfer agent. If the Investment Manager determines that an account shows a pattern
of excessive trading and/or excessive exchanging among the AMG Funds Family of Funds, the Investment Manager reviews the account’s activities and may warn the account owner and/or restrict the account. The Investment Manager also notifies the Funds' transfer agent of any restriction and periodically informs the Board of Trustees about the implementation of these frequent trading policies and procedures.
Limiting Trades
The Funds may refuse a purchase order for any reason and will limit or refuse an exchange request if the Investment Manager believes that a shareholder is engaging in market timing activities that may harm the Funds and their shareholders. Transactions accepted by a Financial Intermediary that violate the Funds' frequent trading policies are not considered to be acceptable by the Funds, and the Funds may reject them on the next business day after the Financial Intermediary has received them.
Although the Funds use reasonable efforts to prevent market timing activities in the Funds, their efforts may not always succeed. For example, although the Funds strive to apply these policies and procedures uniformly to all accounts, the Funds receive certain purchase, exchange, and redemption orders through Financial Intermediaries that maintain omnibus accounts with the Funds. Although the Funds have attempted to put safeguards in place to ensure that Financial Intermediaries have implemented procedures designed to deter market timing, the Funds' ability to detect frequent trading activities by investors who hold shares through omnibus accounts at Financial Intermediaries will still be limited by the ability of the Funds and such intermediaries to monitor for a pattern of excessive trading and/or excessive exchanging within an omnibus account.

AUTOMATIC INVESTMENTS
You may arrange to make automatic deductions at regular intervals from a designated bank account.
AUTOMATIC REINVESTMENT PLAN
This plan lets you conveniently reinvest your dividends and capital gain distributions in additional shares of the Funds.
AUTOMATIC REDEMPTIONS
With this feature, you can easily redeem a set amount each month from your account. You may make automatic monthly redemptions of $100 or more. Redemptions are normally completed on the 25th day of each month. If the 25th day falls on a weekend or holiday, the Funds will complete the redemption on the next business day.
RETIREMENT PLANS
You may hold your shares in a traditional or Roth IRA, which are available to you at no additional cost. Call us at 800.548.4539 to get more information and an IRA kit.
EXCHANGE PRIVILEGES
To enhance your investment flexibility, we allow you to exchange your shares of the Funds for shares of other funds in the Trust or for shares of other funds managed by the Investment Manager, subject to the applicable investment minimum. Not all funds managed by the Investment Manager offer all classes of shares or are open to new investors. In addition to exchanging into other funds managed by the Investment Manager as described above, you also may exchange your shares of the Funds through the Investment Manager for shares in the Agency share class of the JPMorgan U.S. Government Money Market Fund (the “JPMorgan Fund”). In addition, the following restrictions apply:
Except for the JPMorgan Fund, the value of the shares exchanged must meet the minimum purchase requirement of the fund and class for which you are exchanging them. There is no minimum purchase requirement to exchange into the JPMorgan Fund if you exchange out of a Fund through the Investment Manager.
There is no fee associated with the exchange privilege; however, your exchange may result in tax consequences. For details, see “Taxability of Transactions” below.

35AMG Funds

Shareholder Guide
Investor Services (CONTINUED)
The exchange privilege is available only if both of the accounts involved in the transaction are registered in the same name with the same address and taxpayer identification number (“TIN”).
You can request your exchange in writing, by telephone (if elected on the application), by Internet, or through your investment advisor, bank, or investment professional. Normally, we will execute the entire exchange transaction in a single business day.
Be sure to read the prospectus of any fund that you are considering for an exchange. Subject to the restrictions above, when you purchase a fund’s shares by exchange, the same terms and conditions that apply to any new investment in that fund also apply to the exchange. The Funds may discontinue, alter, or limit the exchange privileges at any time, subject to applicable law.
ACCOUNT STATEMENTS
The Funds will send you quarterly and yearly statements with details about your account activity. The Funds will also send you a Form 1099-DIV annually (unless your account is an IRA) that shows the tax breakdown of any dividends and distributions you received from your account. In addition, you will receive a confirmation after each trade execution.
COST BASIS REPORTING
Upon the redemption or exchange of your shares in a Fund, the Fund or, if you purchase your shares through a Financial Intermediary, your Financial Intermediary generally will be required to provide
you and the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) with cost basis information. This cost basis reporting requirement is effective for shares purchased, including through dividend reinvestment, on or after January 1, 2012. Please see www.amgfunds.com or contact the Funds at 800.548.4539, or consult your Financial Intermediary, as appropriate, for more information regarding available methods for cost basis reporting and how to select a particular method. Please consult your tax advisor to determine which available cost basis method is best for you.
DIVIDENDS AND DISTRIBUTIONS
The Funds normally declare and pay any income dividends and net realized capital gain distributions, if any, annually in December. Most investors have their dividends reinvested in additional shares, and the Funds will do this automatically unless you request otherwise. You may also change your election any time by giving the Funds written notice at least 10 days before the scheduled payment date.
CHANGES TO YOUR ACCOUNT
The Funds will mail correspondence and other materials to the address on file for you. Please notify the Funds immediately of any changes to your address or to other information that might affect your account.

Certain Federal Income Tax Information
The following tax information is a general summary of certain U.S. federal income tax consequences applicable to an investment in the Funds under the Internal Revenue Code, as in effect as of the date of this Prospectus. A more detailed tax discussion is provided in the SAI. The Funds do not intend for this information to address all aspects of taxation that may apply to individual shareholders or to specific types of shareholders such as insurance companies, financial institutions, tax-advantaged retirement plans, broker-dealers, and foreign persons, each of whom may qualify for special treatment under U.S. federal income tax laws. You should consult a tax advisor about the U.S. federal, state, local, and foreign tax consequences to you of your investment in the Funds based on your particular circumstances.
Each Fund has elected and intends to qualify and be eligible to be treated each taxable year as a regulated investment company. A regulated investment company generally is not subject to tax at a corporate level on income and gains from investments that are distributed to shareholders. However, a Fund’s failure to qualify and be eligible for treatment as a regulated investment company would result in corporate-level taxation and, consequently, a reduction in income available for distribution to shareholders.
TAXABILITY OF DIVIDENDS AND DISTRIBUTIONS
For U.S. federal income tax purposes, distributions of investment income, whether reinvested or taken as cash, are generally taxable to you as ordinary income. Taxes on distributions of capital gains are
determined by how long each Fund owned or is considered to have owned the investments that generated them, rather than how long you have owned your shares.
Distributions from the sale of investments that a Fund owns or is considered to have owned for more than one year and that are properly reported by the Fund as capital gain dividends are treated as long-term capital gains includible in your net capital gain and taxed to individuals at reduced rates.
Distributions from the sale of investments that a Fund owns or is considered to have owned for one year or less are taxable as ordinary income.
Properly reported distributions of “qualified dividend income” are taxable to you at the rate that applies to net capital gains, provided that both you and such distributing Fund meet certain holding period and other requirements.
A 3.8% Medicare contribution tax is imposed on the “net investment income” of certain individuals, estates and trusts to the extent their income exceeds certain threshold amounts. Net investment income generally includes for this purpose dividends paid by a Fund, including any capital gain dividends, and net gains recognized on the sale, redemption or exchange of shares of a Fund. Shareholders are advised to consult their tax advisors regarding the possible implications of this additional tax on their investment in a Fund.

36AMG Funds

Shareholder Guide
Certain Federal Income Tax Information (CONTINUED)
Distributions are taxable to you in the same manner whether you receive them in cash or reinvest them in additional shares.
Distributions by a Fund to retirement plans that qualify for tax-exempt treatment under U.S. federal income tax laws are not taxable. By investing in the Fund through such a plan, you will not be subject to tax on distributions from the Fund so long as the amounts distributed remain in the plan, but you will generally be taxed upon withdrawal of monies from the plan. You should consult your tax advisor to determine the suitability of a Fund as an investment through your retirement plan and the tax treatment of distributions (including distributions of amounts attributable to an investment in a Fund) from such a plan.
TAXABILITY OF TRANSACTIONS
Any gain or loss that results from the sale, exchange (including an exchange of a Fund's shares for shares of another fund) or redemption of your shares will be treated generally as capital gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes, which will be long-term or short-term depending on how long you have held your shares.
OTHER TAX MATTERS
A Fund’s investments in foreign securities may be subject to foreign taxes. In that case, the Fund’s return on those investments would generally be decreased. The application of certain foreign taxes, including withholding taxes, may be unclear. If more than 50% of the value of a Fund’s total assets at the close of a taxable year consists of securities of foreign corporations, the Fund will be eligible to elect to “pass through” to you foreign income taxes that it pays. If a Fund is eligible to and does so elect, you will be required to include your share of those taxes in gross income as a distribution from the Fund and you generally will be allowed to claim a credit (or, if you itemize deductions and so choose, a deduction) for such amounts on your U.S. federal income tax return, subject to certain limitations. If a Fund is not eligible to or does not so elect, shareholders will not be entitled separately to claim a credit or deduction
for U.S. federal income tax purposes with respect to foreign taxes paid by the Fund; in that case the foreign tax will nonetheless reduce the Fund’s taxable income.
Certain of a Fund’s investments, including certain debt instruments, derivatives, foreign securities or foreign currencies, ETNs, and shares of other investment funds, such as ETFs and REITs, could affect the amount, timing and character of distributions you receive and could cause the Fund to recognize taxable income in excess of the cash generated by such investments (which may require the Fund to sell other investments in order to make required distributions).
Because the tax rules applicable to such investments may be uncertain under current U.S. federal income tax law, an adverse determination or future IRS guidance with respect to these rules may affect whether a Fund has derived its income from the proper sources, made sufficient distributions, and otherwise satisfied the relevant requirements, to maintain its qualification and eligibility for treatment as a regulated investment company and avoid a Fund-level tax. Please see the SAI for more detailed tax information.
TAX WITHHOLDING
To avoid back-up withholding of U.S. federal income taxes on distributions or sale proceeds, federal law requires you to:
Provide your Social Security Number (“SSN”) or other TIN;
Certify that your SSN or TIN is correct; and
Certify that you are not subject to back-up withholding.
In addition, the Funds must also withhold taxes on distributions and sale proceeds if the IRS notifies the Funds that the SSN or TIN you provided is incorrect, or the IRS notifies the Funds that you have failed to properly report certain interest and dividend income.
