Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual operating expenses (excluding certain items such as interest, taxes, and brokerage commissions) do not exceed 0.85%, 1.60%, 1.10%, 0.55%, and 0.60% of the Fund’s Class A, Class C, Class R, Class R6, and Class Y shares, respectively, through at least April 30, 2024. The Adviser is permitted to recoup advisory fees waived and expenses reimbursed for up to three years after the date of the waiver or reimbursement, subject to the lesser of any operating expense limits in effect at the time of: (a) the original waiver or expense reimbursement; or (b) the recoupment, after giving effect to the recoupment amount. This agreement may only be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Example:
The following example is designed to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods shown and then sell or continue to hold all of your shares at the end of those periods. The example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. After eight years, Class C shares of the Fund generally will convert automatically to Class A shares of the Fund. The example for Class C shares reflects the conversion to

The example does not reflect sales charges (loads) on reinvested dividends and other distributions. If these sales charges (loads) were included, your costs would be higher.
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 will generally 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. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 29% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Adviser pursues the Fund’s investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the value of its net assets in common stocks, preferred stocks, and other securities convertible into common or preferred stock of publicly traded companies wherever they may be in the world. The Fund invests in companies of any size. The Fund expects that substantially all of the securities held by the Fund will be listed on at least one securities exchange.
Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest in companies located in at least three different countries including the United States. The Fund normally will invest 40% or more of its total assets in securities of non-U.S. companies. The Fund can invest any portion of its assets in companies located in emerging markets.
The Adviser employs both fundamental analysis and a data-driven approach in seeking to identify companies across the market capitalization spectrum that it believes can sustain long-term growth. Valuation is also an integral part of the investment process. The Adviser seeks to identify companies that it believes possess strong earnings quality, operational efficiency, sound management, favorable growth characteristics, attractive valuations, and that enjoy favorable market sentiment. The Adviser monitors macroeconomic and political trends, as well as risk exposures, as part of the overall investment process.
The Adviser regularly reviews the Fund’s investments and will sell securities when the Adviser believes the securities are no longer attractive because (1) of a deterioration in rank of the security in accordance with the Adviser’s process, (2) of price appreciation, (3) of a change in the fundamental outlook of the company, or (4) other investments available are considered to be more attractive.

Victory RS Global Fund Summary
The Fund typically will not seek to hedge its foreign currency exposure (arising from investments denominated in foreign currencies) relative to the U.S. dollar, although the Fund may engage in foreign currency exchange contracts to take advantage of changes in currency exchange rates anticipated by the Fund’s investment team.
The Fund also may invest in foreign issuers through American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), European Depositary Receipts (“EDRs”), Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”), or similar investment vehicles. The Fund may invest in companies of any size.
As a result of the Adviser’s investment process, the Fund’s investments may be focused in one or more economic sectors from time to time, including the information technology sector.
Principal Risks
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Foreign Securities Risk — Foreign securities (including depositary receipts) are subject to political, regulatory, and economic risks not present in domestic investments. Foreign securities could be affected by factors not present in the United States, including expropriation, confiscation of property, and difficulties in enforcing contracts. Compared to U.S. companies, there generally is less publicly available information about foreign companies and there may be less governmental regulation and supervision of foreign companies. Foreign securities generally experience more volatility than their domestic counterparts. Depositary receipts may have additional risks, including creditworthiness of the depositary bank and the risk of an illiquid market. In addition, to the extent investments are made in a limited number of countries, events in those countries will have a more significant impact on the Fund. Fluctuations in the exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and foreign currencies, currency exchange control regulations, and restrictions or prohibitions on the repatriation of foreign currencies may negatively affect an investment.
Emerging Markets Risk — The risks related to investing in foreign securities are generally greater with respect to securities of companies that conduct their business activities in emerging markets or whose securities are traded principally in emerging markets. The risks of investing in emerging markets include the risks of illiquidity, increased price volatility, smaller-market capitalizations, limited reliable access to capital, less government regulation (including limitations on the available rights and remedies), market manipulation concerns, less extensive and less frequent recordkeeping, accounting, financial and other reporting requirements, risk of loss resulting from problems in share

Victory RS Global Fund Summary
registration and custody, risks related to foreign investment structures, substantial economic and political disruptions and the nationalization of foreign deposits or assets.
Liquidity Risk — Lack of a ready market or restrictions on resale may limit the ability of the Fund to dispose of certain holdings quickly or at prices that represent true market value in the judgment of the Adviser. In addition, the Fund, by itself or together with other accounts managed by the Adviser, may hold a position in an investment that is large relative to the typical trading volume for that investment, which can make it difficult for the Fund to dispose of the position at an advantageous time or price. Illiquid investments and relatively less-liquid investments may also be difficult to value. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund may not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, unusually high volume of redemptions, or other reasons. To meet redemption requests or to raise cash to pursue other investment opportunities, the Fund may be forced to sell investments at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, which may adversely affect the Fund.
Smaller-Capitalization Stock Risk — Small-sized companies are subject to a number of risks not associated with larger, more established companies, potentially making their stock prices more volatile and increasing the risk of loss. Smaller companies may have limited markets, product lines, or financial resources and lack management experience and may experience higher failure rates than larger companies.
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — The securities of large-sized companies may underperform the securities of smaller-sized companies or the market as a whole. The growth rate of larger, more established companies may lag those of smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.
Sector Focus Risk — While the Fund reserves the right to dynamically allocate its assets across economic sectors, listed below are some of the risks associated with the sectors in which the Fund may make significant investments. Market or economic factors impacting those sectors could have a significant effect on the value of the Fund’s investments and could make the Fund’s performance more volatile.
Information Technology Sector Risk — Companies in the information technology sector face intense competition, both domestically and internationally. These companies may be smaller or newer and may have limited product lines, markets, financial resources, or personnel. The products of companies in the information technology sector may face product obsolescence due to rapid technological developments and frequent new product introduction, unpredictable changes in growth rates, and competition for the services of qualified personnel. These companies may be developing or marketing new products or services for which markets are not yet established and may never become established.
Management Risk — The portfolio managers may not execute the Fund's principal investment strategy effectively.
You may lose money by investing in the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
By itself, the Fund does not constitute a complete investment plan and should be considered a long-term investment for investors who can afford to weather changes in the value of their investment.

Victory RS Global Fund Summary
Investment Performance
The bar chart and table that follow are intended to help you understand some of the risks of investing in the Fund. The bar chart shows you how the Fund’s calendar year performance has varied over the past 10 years. The table compares the Fund’s average annual total returns of the Fund's share classes, including applicable maximum sales charges, over the same period to one or more broad measures of market performance, which have characteristics relevant to the Fund's investment strategy. We assume reinvestment of dividends and distributions.
Performance data for the classes varies based on differences in their fee and expense structures and reflects any expense limitations in effect during the periods shown. The Fund's past performance (before and after taxes) does not necessarily indicate how the Fund will perform in the future. Updated performance information is available on the Fund’s website at vcm.com.
Performance information for the Fund’s Class A, C, R, and Y shares prior to July 30, 2016, reflects the historical performance of, respectively, the Class A, C, K, and Y shares of the RS Global Fund, a series of RS Investment Trust (the predecessor to the Fund managed by RS Investment Management Co. LLC) (the “predecessor fund”). The Fund’s performance has not been restated to reflect any differences in expenses paid by the predecessor fund and those paid by the Fund.
Class R performance information that is published below and in other materials, including on the Fund’s website, that includes performance for periods after August 15, 2016, reflects capital contributions by the Adviser in the form of expense reimbursements that were made at a time when the total assets of Class R were small due to a large shareholder redemption. Without taking into consideration the effect of these expense reimbursements, Class R performance for the same periods would have been lower. Performance would be similar, exclusive of any class-specific differences in fees and expenses, to the performance of the Fund’s other share classes, which more accurately reflect the Fund’s performance during such periods. The impact of the expense reimbursements on performance in future periods will vary due to fluctuations in Class R total assets and the amount of any reimbursements.

For Class A and Class C shares a $1,000 minimum initial purchase amount and a $50 minimum subsequent purchase amount apply for Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), gift/transfer to minor accounts, and purchases through automatic investment plans.
Certain broker-dealers and other financial intermediaries (such as a bank) may establish higher or lower minimum initial and subsequent investment amounts to which you may be subject if you invest through them.
You may redeem your shares on any day the Fund is open for business. Redemption requests may be made by telephone (with prior appropriate approval) or by mail.
When you buy and redeem shares, the Fund will price your transaction at the next-determined net asset value (“NAV”) after the Fund receives your request in good order, which means that your request contains all the required documentation, and that all documents contain required signatures or signature guarantees from a financial institution.
Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions are taxable whether you receive them in cash, additional shares of the Fund, or you reinvest them in shares of another Victory Fund, and will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Taxes may be imposed on withdrawals from tax-deferred arrangements.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary, the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services for investments in all classes except Class R6. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the financial intermediary and its financial advisor to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial advisor or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual operating expenses (excluding certain items such as interest, taxes, and brokerage commissions) do not exceed 1.13%, 1.88%, 1.38%, 0.83%, and 0.88% of the Fund’s Class A, Class C, Class R, Class R6, and Class Y shares, respectively, through at least April 30, 2024. The Adviser is permitted to recoup advisory fees waived and expenses reimbursed for up to three years after the date of the waiver or reimbursement, subject to the lesser of any operating expense limits in effect at the time of: (a) the original waiver or expense reimbursement; or (b) the recoupment, after giving effect to the recoupment amount. This agreement may only be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Example:
The following example is designed to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods shown and then sell or continue to hold all of your shares at the end of those periods. The example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. After eight years, Class C shares of the Fund generally will convert automatically to Class A shares of the Fund. The example for Class C shares reflects the conversion to

The example does not reflect sales charges (loads) on reinvested dividends and other distributions. If these sales charges (loads) were included, your costs would be higher.
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 will generally 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. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 29% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Adviser pursues the Fund’s investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the value of the Fund’s net assets in common stocks and convertible securities issued by companies (1) organized, domiciled, or with a principal office outside of the United States, (2) the securities of which primarily trade in a market located outside of the United States, or (3) that do a substantial amount of business outside of the United States, which the Adviser considers to be companies that derive at least 50% of their revenue or profits from business outside the United States or have at least 50% of their sales or assets outside the United States.
The Fund usually does not focus its investments in a particular industry or country. A significant part of the Fund’s assets normally will be divided among continental Europe, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Asia/Pacific region (including Australia and New Zealand). However, there are no limitations on how much money the Fund can invest in any one country. The Fund may invest up to 20% (measured at the time of purchase) of its total assets in countries in emerging markets when the Adviser believes it would be appropriate to do so.
The Adviser employs both fundamental analysis and a data-driven approach in seeking to identify companies across the market capitalization spectrum that it believes can sustain long-term growth. Valuation is also an integral part of the investment process. The Adviser seeks to identify companies that it believes possess strong earnings quality, operational efficiency, sound management, favorable growth characteristics, and attractive valuations, and that enjoy favorable market sentiment. The Adviser monitors macroeconomic and political trends, as well as risk exposures, as part of the overall investment process.

Victory RS International Fund Summary
The Adviser regularly reviews the Fund’s investments and will sell securities when the Adviser believes the securities are no longer attractive because (1) of a deterioration in rank of the security in accordance with the Adviser’s process, (2) of price appreciation, (3) of a change in the fundamental outlook of the company, or (4) other investments available are considered to be more attractive.
The Fund may also invest in foreign issuers through American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), European Depositary Receipts (“EDRs”), Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”), or similar investment vehicles. The Fund may invest in companies of any size.
Principal Risks
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Foreign Securities Risk — Foreign securities (including depositary receipts) are subject to political, regulatory, and economic risks not present in domestic investments. Foreign securities could be affected by factors not present in the United States, including expropriation, confiscation of property, and difficulties in enforcing contracts. Compared to U.S. companies, there generally is less publicly available information about foreign companies and there may be less governmental regulation and supervision of foreign companies. Foreign securities generally experience more volatility than their domestic counterparts. Depositary receipts may have additional risks, including creditworthiness of the depositary bank and the risk of an illiquid market. In addition, to the extent investments are made in a limited number of countries, events in those countries will have a more significant impact on the Fund. Fluctuations in the exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and foreign currencies, currency exchange control regulations, and restrictions or prohibitions on the repatriation of foreign currencies may negatively affect an investment.
Emerging Markets Risk — The risks related to investing in foreign securities are generally greater with respect to securities of companies that conduct their business activities in emerging markets or whose securities are traded principally in emerging markets. The risks of investing in emerging markets include the risks of illiquidity, increased price volatility, smaller-market capitalizations, limited reliable access to capital, less government regulation (including limitations on the available rights and remedies), market manipulation concerns, less extensive and less frequent recordkeeping, accounting, financial and other reporting requirements, risk of loss resulting from problems in share registration and custody, risks related to foreign investment structures, substantial economic and political disruptions and the nationalization of foreign deposits or assets.
10

Victory RS International Fund Summary
Smaller-Capitalization Stock Risk — Small-sized companies are subject to a number of risks not associated with larger, more established companies, potentially making their stock prices more volatile and increasing the risk of loss. Smaller companies may have limited markets, product lines, or financial resources and lack management experience and may experience higher failure rates than larger companies.
Liquidity Risk — Lack of a ready market or restrictions on resale may limit the ability of the Fund to dispose of certain holdings quickly or at prices that represent true market value in the judgment of the Adviser. In addition, the Fund, by itself or together with other accounts managed by the Adviser, may hold a position in an investment that is large relative to the typical trading volume for that investment, which can make it difficult for the Fund to dispose of the position at an advantageous time or price. Illiquid investments and relatively less-liquid investments may also be difficult to value. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund may not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, unusually high volume of redemptions, or other reasons. To meet redemption requests or to raise cash to pursue other investment opportunities, the Fund may be forced to sell investments at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, which may adversely affect the Fund.
Sector Focus Risk — While the Fund reserves the right to dynamically allocate its assets across economic sectors, listed below are some of the risks associated with the sectors in which the Fund may make significant investments. Market or economic factors impacting those sectors could have a significant effect on the value of the Fund’s investments and could make the Fund’s performance more volatile.
Financials Sector Risk — Companies in the financials sector are subject to extensive government regulation, which can limit both the amounts and types of loans and other financial commitments that companies in this sector can make, and the interest rates and fees that these companies can charge. Profitability can be largely dependent on the availability and cost of capital and the rate of corporate and consumer debt defaults, and can fluctuate significantly when interest rates change. Financial difficulties of borrowers can negatively affect the financials sector. Insurance companies can be subject to severe price competition. The financials sector can be subject to relatively rapid change as distinctions between financial service segments become increasingly blurred.
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — The securities of large-sized companies may underperform the securities of smaller-sized companies or the market as a whole. The growth rate of larger, more established companies may lag those of smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.
Management Risk — The portfolio managers may not execute the Fund's principal investment strategy effectively.
You may lose money by investing in the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
By itself, the Fund does not constitute a complete investment plan and should be considered a long-term investment for investors who can afford to weather changes in the value of their investment.
Investment Performance
The bar chart and table that follow are intended to help you understand some of the risks of investing in the Fund. The bar chart shows you how the Fund’s calendar year performance has varied over the past 10 years. The table compares the Fund’s average annual total returns of the Fund's share classes, including applicable maximum sales charges, over the same period to one or more broad measures of market performance, which have characteristics relevant to the Fund's investment strategy. We assume reinvestment of dividends and distributions.

Victory RS International Fund Summary
You may redeem your shares on any day the Fund is open for business. Redemption requests may be made by telephone (with prior appropriate approval) or by mail.
When you buy and redeem shares, the Fund will price your transaction at the next-determined net asset value (“NAV”) after the Fund receives your request in good order, which means that your request contains all the required documentation, and that all documents contain required signatures or signature guarantees from a financial institution.
Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions are taxable whether you receive them in cash, additional shares of the Fund, or you reinvest them in shares of another Victory Fund, and will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Taxes may be imposed on withdrawals from tax-deferred arrangements.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary, the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services for investments in all classes except Class R6. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the financial intermediary and its financial advisor to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial advisor or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Additional Fund Information
Victory Capital Management Inc., which we refer to as the “Adviser”
throughout the Prospectus, manages each Fund.
The Victory RS Global Fund and Victory RS International Fund are each managed by the Adviser, who also manages other funds, each having distinct investment management objectives, strategies, risks, and policies. Together, these funds are referred to in this Prospectus as the “Victory Funds” or, more simply, the “Funds.”
The following section describes additional information about the principal investment strategy the Funds will use under normal market conditions to pursue their investment objective, as well as any secondary strategies the Funds may use, and the related risks. This Prospectus does not attempt to describe all of the various investment techniques and types of investments that the Adviser may use in managing the Funds. The Statement of Additional Information (“SAI”) includes more information about the Funds, their investments, and the related risks. Under adverse, unstable, or abnormal market conditions, a Fund may be unable to pursue or achieve its investment objective and, for temporary purposes, may invest some or all of its assets in a variety of instruments or assets, including high-quality fixed-income securities, cash, and cash equivalents. For cash management purposes, each Fund may hold all or a portion of its assets in cash, short-term money market instruments, or shares of other investment companies. These positions may reduce the benefit from any upswing in the market, cause a Fund to fail to meet its investment objective, and increase a Fund's expenses.
Each Fund’s investment objective is non-fundamental and may be changed by the Board of Trustees without shareholder approval upon 60 days’ written notice to shareholders.

Investments
The following describes the types of securities each Fund may purchase under normal market conditions to achieve its principal investment strategy. The Funds will not necessarily buy all of the securities listed below.
Foreign Securities
Can include common stock and convertible preferred stock of non-U.S. corporations. Also may include American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) and Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”), which are receipts issued by a bank or trust company and evidence ownership of underlying securities issued by foreign corporations, and exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) that invest in foreign corporations.
Convertible Preferred Stock
A class of stock that pays dividends at a specified rate, has preference over common stock in the payment of dividends and the liquidation of assets, and is convertible into common stock.
Additional Fund Strategies. The Adviser may use other types of investment strategies in pursuing each Fund's overall investment objective. The following describes the types of securities that the Adviser may purchase or investment techniques the Adviser may employ that are not considered to be a part of the Funds' principal investment strategies. Additional securities and techniques are described in the Funds' SAI.
Forward Foreign Currency Exchange Contracts
Contracts that attempt to eliminate currency exposure between the time of a securities transaction and settlement of that transaction. A forward foreign currency exchange contract is an agreement to buy or sell a country’s currency at a specific price on a specific date, usually 30, 60, or 90 days in the future. In other words, the contract guarantees an exchange rate on a given date.
Investment Companies
A Fund may invest in securities of other investment companies, including ETFs, if those companies invest in securities consistent with the Fund's investment objective and policies. ETFs are investment companies the shares of which are bought and sold on a securities exchange.
Securities Lending
To enhance the return on its portfolio, a Fund may lend portfolio securities to brokers, dealers and financial institutions to realize additional income under guidelines adopted by the Board of Trustees. Each loan will be secured continuously by collateral in the form of cash, securities issued by the U.S. government or its agencies or instrumentalities.
16

Risk Factors
The following provides additional information about the Funds' principal risks and supplements those risks discussed in each Fund's Fund Summary section of this Prospectus.
By matching your investment objective with an acceptable level of risk,
you can create your own customized investment plan.
Currency Risk — Since foreign securities often are denominated and traded in foreign currencies, the value of a Fund’s assets may be affected favorably or unfavorably by currency exchange rates, currency exchange control regulations, foreign withholding or other taxes, and restrictions or prohibitions on the repatriation of foreign currencies. To attempt to protect against changes in currency exchange rates, a Fund may, but will not necessarily, engage in forward foreign currency exchange transactions (such as foreign currency forwards or futures contracts, and foreign currency options). The use of foreign currency exchange transactions to reduce foreign currency exposure can eliminate some or all of the benefit of an increase in the value of a foreign currency versus the U.S. dollar.
If a Fund purchases securities denominated in foreign currencies, a change in the value of any such currency against the U.S. dollar will result in a change in the U.S. dollar value of the Fund’s assets and potentially the Fund’s income available for distribution. The values of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar fluctuate in response to, among other factors, interest rate changes, intervention (or failure to intervene) by the U.S. or foreign governments, central banks, or supranational entities such as the International Monetary Fund; the imposition of currency controls; and political and regulatory developments in the United States or abroad. Officials in foreign countries may from time to time take actions in respect of their currencies which could adversely affect the values of a Fund’s assets denominated in those currencies or the liquidity of such investments. Foreign currency values can decrease significantly both in the short term and over the long term in response to these and other developments.
Emerging Markets Risk — All of the risks associated with investing in foreign securities are increased in connection with investments in securities associated with emerging markets. Generally, emerging market countries are less diverse and mature than those of developed countries and their political systems are less stable. These countries are more likely to experience high levels of inflation, deflation or currency devaluation, which could also hurt their economies and securities markets. The risks of investing in these markets also include the risks of illiquidity, increased price volatility, less government regulation, less extensive and less frequent accounting, financial and other reporting requirements, risk of loss resulting from problems in share registration and custody, and the nationalization of foreign deposits or assets. In addition, countries in emerging markets are more likely to experience instability in their markets due to social and political changes, as well as military interventions and war. Further, due to the smaller securities markets, lower trading volumes and less government regulation of securities markets in emerging market countries compared to those in developed countries, investments in emerging market securities generally are more illiquid and volatile and subject to a higher risk of settlement disruptions than investments in securities of issuers in developed countries. Consequently, emerging market securities may be subject to relatively more abrupt and severe price declines.
Equity Risk — The market prices of equity securities, which may include common stocks and other stock-related securities such as preferred stocks may fluctuate, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably. The value of a security may decline for reasons that directly relate to the issuer, such as management performance, financial leverage, and reduced demand for the issuer’s goods or services or due to general market conditions, such as real or perceived adverse economic conditions, changes in the general outlook for corporate earnings, changes in interest or currency rates, or adverse investor sentiment generally. Unlike debt securities, which have preference to a company’s assets in case of liquidation, equity securities are entitled to the residual value after the company meets its other
17

Risk Factors
obligations. A Fund may continue to accept new subscriptions and to make additional investments in equity securities even under general market conditions that a Fund’s investment team views as unfavorable for equity securities.
Foreign Securities Risk
Foreign Investments Risk — Foreign investments involve certain special risks. For example, compared to U.S. companies, there generally is less publicly available information about foreign companies and there may be less governmental regulation and supervision of foreign stock exchanges, brokers, and listed companies. Foreign issuers may not be subject to the uniform accounting, auditing, and financial reporting standards and practices prevalent in the United States. Investments in foreign countries could be affected by factors not present in the United States, including expropriation, confiscation of property, and difficulties in enforcing contracts. These factors can make foreign investments more volatile than U.S. investments. Certain of these risks may also apply to some extent to U.S. investments that are denominated in foreign currencies and to investments in U.S. companies that have significant foreign operations. Investments in depositary receipts (such as American Depositary Receipts and Global Depositary Receipts ) may also involve additional risks associated with the non-uniform terms that apply to depositary receipt programs, credit exposure to the depository bank and to the sponsors and other parties with whom the depository bank establishes the programs, currency risk and the risk of an illiquid market for depositary receipts.
Political Risk — Foreign securities markets may be more volatile than their counterparts in the United States. Investments in foreign countries could be affected by factors not present in the United States, including expropriation, confiscation of property, and difficulties in enforcing contracts. Foreign settlement procedures may also involve additional risks, and foreign issuers can be impacted by changes to trade policies and trade disputes. These factors can make foreign investments more volatile than U.S. investments.
Legal Risk — Legal remedies for investors in foreign countries may be more limited than the legal remedies available in the United States.
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — Large-sized 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. 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.
Large Shareholder Risk — The Funds, like all investment companies, pool the investments of many investors. Actions by one shareholder or multiple shareholders may have an impact on the Funds and, therefore, indirectly on other shareholders. For example, significant levels of new investments in the Fund by shareholders may cause the Funds to have more cash than would otherwise be the case, which might have a positive or negative impact on Fund performance. Similarly, redemption activity might cause the Funds to sell portfolio securities, which may increase transaction costs and might generate a capital gain or loss, or cause it to borrow funds on a short-term basis to cover redemptions, which would cause the Funds to incur costs that, in effect, would be borne by all shareholders and not just the redeeming shareholders. Shareholder purchase and redemption activity also may affect the per share amount of the Funds' distributions of its net investment income and net realized capital gains, if any, thereby affecting the tax burden on the Funds' shareholders subject to federal income tax, and/or accelerate the realization of taxable income and cause the Funds to make taxable distributions to its shareholders earlier than the Funds otherwise would have. In addition, under certain circumstances, non-redeeming shareholders may be treated as receiving a disproportionately
18

Risk Factors
large taxable distribution during or with respect to such tax year. To the extent a larger shareholder (including, for example, an affiliated fund that operates as a fund-of-funds or 529 college savings plan) is permitted to invest in the Funds, the Funds may experience large inflows or outflows of cash from time to time. This activity could magnify these adverse effects on the Funds.
Liquidity Risk — Liquidity risk exists when particular investments cannot be disposed of quickly in the normal course of business. Market values for illiquid securities may not be readily available, and there can be no assurance that any fair value assigned to an illiquid investment at any time will accurately reflect the price a Fund might receive upon the sale of that investment. The ability of a Fund to dispose of illiquid securities or other instruments at advantageous prices may be greatly limited, and the Fund may have to continue to hold such securities or instruments during periods when the Adviser would otherwise have sold them (in order, for example, to meet redemption requests or to take advantage of other investment opportunities). Adverse market or economic conditions independent of any specific adverse changes in the conditions of a particular issuer, including rising interest rates, may adversely affect the liquidity of a Fund’s investments. Some securities held by the Fund may be restricted as to resale, and there is often no ready market for such securities. In addition, a Fund, by itself or together with other accounts managed by the Adviser, may hold a position in an investment that is large relative to the typical trading volume for that holding, which can make it difficult for the Fund to dispose of the position at an advantageous time or price. It may also be the case that other market participants may be attempting to liquidate a position at the same time as a Fund is attempting to liquidate the same investment, causing increased supply in the market and contributing to liquidity risk and downward pricing pressure. In such cases the sale proceeds received by the Fund may be substantially less than if the Fund had been able to sell the securities in more-orderly transactions, and the sale price may be substantially lower than the price previously used by the Fund to value the securities for purposes of determining the Fund’s net asset value.
Management Risk — The investment process used by the investment team may produce incorrect judgments about the value of a particular asset or the team may implement its investment strategy in a way that may not produce the desired results.
Portfolio Turnover Risk — Portfolio turnover generally involves a number of direct and indirect costs and expenses to a Fund, including, for example, dealer mark-ups and bid/asked spreads and transaction costs on the sale of securities and reinvestment in other securities. Such costs are not reflected in the Funds' Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses set forth under “Fund Fees and Expenses” but do have the effect of reducing a Fund's investment return. Such sales may result in the realization of taxable capital gains, including short-term capital gains, which are generally taxed to shareholders at ordinary income tax rates.
Sector Focus Risk — While the Fund reserves the right to dynamically allocate its assets across economic sectors, the Fund may make significant investments in one or more sectors, each of which entails associated risks. Additionally, the Fund’s performance may be more volatile when the Fund’s investments are focused in a particular sector. Since benchmark sector weights influence a Fund’s sector exposure, the Fund may tend to be more heavily weighted in companies in those sectors included in the benchmark.
Financials Sector Risk — Companies in the financials sector are subject to extensive governmental regulation, which may limit both the amounts and types of loans and other financial commitments they can make, the interest rates and fees they can charge, the scope of their activities, the prices they can charge and the amount of capital they must maintain. Profitability is largely dependent on the availability and cost of capital funds and can fluctuate significantly when interest rates change or due to increased competition. In addition, deterioration of the credit markets generally may cause an adverse impact in a broad range of markets, including U.S. and international credit and interbank money markets generally, thereby affecting a wide range of financial institutions and markets. Credit losses resulting
19

Risk Factors
from financial difficulties of borrowers and financial losses associated with investment activities can negatively impact the sector. Insurance companies may be subject to severe price competition. Adverse economic, business, or political developments could adversely affect financial institutions engaged in mortgage finance or other lending or investing activities directly or indirectly connected to the value of real estate.
Information Technology Sector Risk — Information technology companies tend to significantly rely on technological events or advances in their product development, production, or operations and are particularly vulnerable to rapid changes in technological product cycles, government regulation, and competition. Information technology companies may be smaller and less experienced companies, with limited product lines, markets, or financial resources and fewer experienced management or marketing personnel. Information technology company stocks, especially those which are internet-related, have experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that are often unrelated to their operating performance.
Smaller-Company Stock Risk — Small- or mid-sized companies often have more limited managerial and financial resources than larger, more established companies and, therefore, may be more susceptible to market downturns or changing economic conditions. In addition, such companies may have been recently organized and have little or no track record of success. Also, the Adviser may not have had an opportunity to evaluate such newer companies’ performance in adverse or fluctuating market conditions. The securities of smaller-sized companies may trade less frequently and in smaller volume than more widely held securities. Prices of small- or mid-sized companies tend to be more volatile than those of larger companies and small- or mid-sized issuers may be subject to greater degrees of changes in their earnings and prospects. Since smaller-company stocks typically have narrower markets and are traded in lower volumes than larger-company stocks, they may be often more difficult to purchase and sell.
Stock Market Risk — Stock market risk refers to the fact that the prices of equity securities and other exchange traded investments typically fluctuate more than the values of debt and other types of securities, typically in response to changes in the particular company’s financial condition and factors affecting the market in general. Over time, the stock market tends to move in cycles, with periods when stock prices rise, and periods when stock prices decline. A slower-growth or recessionary economic environment could have an adverse effect on stock prices. Consequently, a broad-based market drop may also cause a stock’s price to fall. Portfolio securities may also decline in value due to factors affecting securities markets generally, such as real or perceived adverse economic, political, or regulatory conditions, inflation, changes in interest or currency rates or adverse investor sentiment, or due to factors affecting particular industries represented in the securities markets, such as competitive conditions. Changes in the financial condition of a single issuer can impact a market as a whole, and adverse market conditions may be prolonged and may not have the same impact on all types of securities. In addition, the markets may not favor a particular kind of security, including equity securities. Values of securities may fall due to factors affecting a particular issuer, industry, or the securities market as a whole.
Market turmoil may be reflected in perceptions of economic uncertainty, price volatility in the equity and debt markets, and fluctuating trading liquidity. In response, governments may adopt a variety of fiscal and monetary policy changes, including but not limited to, direct capital infusions into companies, new monetary programs, and lower interest rates. These policies may not be successful and any unexpected or quick reversal of these policies could increase volatility in the equity and debt markets. Market conditions and economic risks could have a significant effect on domestic and international economies and could add significantly to the risks of increased volatility and decreased liquidity for a Fund's portfolio.
Geopolitical/Natural Disaster Risk — Global economies and financial markets are increasingly interconnected, which increases the possibilities that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. Geopolitical and other risks, including
20

Risk Factors
war, economic sanctions, currency controls or other actions by countries or international bodies, terrorism, trade disputes, embargoes, and other types of economic sanctions, political or economic dysfunction within some nations, public health crises and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, may add to instability in world economies and markets generally. Changes in trade policies and international trade agreements could affect the economies of many countries in unpredictable ways. Epidemics and/or pandemics, such as COVID-19, may result in, among other things, closing borders, disruptions to health care service preparation and delivery, quarantines, cancellations, disruptions to supply chains and consumer activity, as well as general concern and uncertainty. The impact may last for extended periods.
Information Technology and Operational Risk — Markets and market participants are increasingly reliant upon both publicly available and proprietary information data systems. Data imprecision, software or other technology malfunctions, programming inaccuracies, unauthorized use or access, and similar circumstances may impair the performance of these systems and may have an adverse impact upon a single issuer, a group of issuers, or the market at large. The information technology and other operational systems upon which a Fund’s service providers rely may be subject to cyber-attack or other technological disruptions, and could otherwise disrupt the ability of these service providers to perform essential tasks for a Fund. In certain cases, an exchange or market may close or issue trading halts on either specific securities or even the entire market, which may result in a Fund being, among other things, unable to buy or sell certain securities or financial instruments or accurately price its investments.
Additional Risk Factors. The Adviser may use several types of investment strategies in pursuing the Fund's overall investment objective. The following risks are those that the Adviser does not consider to be principal risks of the Funds. Additional risks are included in the Funds' SAI.
Forward Foreign Currency Exchange Contracts Risk — A forward foreign currency exchange contract is an agreement to exchange a specified amount of U.S. dollars for a specified amount of a foreign currency on a specific date in the future. The outcome of this transaction depends on changes in the relative values of the currencies subject to the transaction, the ability of the adviser to predict how the U.S. dollar will fare against the foreign currency, and the ability of a Fund’s counterparty to perform its obligation. The Funds may use these contracts to facilitate the settlement of portfolio transactions or to try to manage the risk of changes in currency exchange rates.
Investment Company Risk— The Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective may be directly related to the ability of other investment companies (including ETFs) held by the Fund to meet their investment objectives. In addition, shareholders of the Fund will indirectly bear the fees and expenses of the underlying investment companies. Lack of liquidity in an ETF could result in an ETF being more
volatile than the underlying portfolio of securities.
21

Risk Factors
Securities Lending Risk — The risk in lending portfolio securities, as with other extensions of credit, consists of the possibility of loss to a Fund due to (1) the inability of the borrower to return the securities, (2) a delay in receiving additional collateral to adequately cover any fluctuations in the value of securities on loan, (3) a delay in recovery of the securities, or (4) the loss of rights in the collateral should the borrower fail financially. These events could trigger adverse tax consequences for a Fund. In addition, a Fund is responsible for any loss that might result from its investment of the borrower’s collateral. In determining whether to lend securities, the Adviser or a Fund’s securities lending agent will consider relevant facts and circumstances, including the creditworthiness of the borrower.

Share Price
The daily NAV is useful to you as a shareholder because the NAV,
multiplied by the number of Fund shares you own, gives you the value of your investment.
Each Victory Fund calculates its share price, called its net asset value (“NAV”), each business day as of the close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange, Inc. (“NYSE”), which is normally 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The NAV takes into account the expenses and fees of a Fund, including management, administration, and distribution fees (if any), which are accrued daily. In the event of an emergency or other disruption in trading on the NYSE, a Fund’s share price will be determined based upon the close of the NYSE. You may buy, exchange, and sell your shares on any business day at a price that is based on the NAV that is next calculated after you place your order. A business day is a day on which the NYSE is open. The NYSE is closed on most national holidays and Good Friday.
To the extent a Fund’s investments include securities that are primarily traded in foreign markets, the value of those securities may change on days when shareholders are unable to purchase and redeem a Fund’s shares, such as on weekends or other days when the Fund does not price its shares.
Each Fund prices its investments based on market value when market quotations are readily available. When these quotations are not readily available, the Adviser will price a Fund’s investments at fair value in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements. A security will be fair valued when:
Trading in the security has been halted;
The market quotation for the security is clearly erroneous due to a clerical error;
The security’s liquidity decreases such that, in the Adviser's opinion, the market quotation has become stale; or
An event occurs after the close of the trading market (but before the Fund’s NAV is calculated) that, in the Adviser’s opinion, materially affects the value of the security.
The use of fair value pricing may minimize arbitrage opportunities that attempt to exploit the differences between a security's market quotation and its fair value. The use of fair value pricing may not, however, always reflect a security’s actual market value in light of subsequent relevant information, and the security’s opening price on the next trading day may be different from the fair value price assigned to the security.
Each Victory Fund calculates the NAV of each share class by adding up the total value of the investments and other assets of that class, subtracting its liabilities, and then dividing that figure by the number of outstanding shares of the class.
NAV=
Total Assets - Liabilities
Number of Shares Outstanding
A Fund's NAV is available by calling 800-539-FUND (800-539-3863) or by visiting the Funds' website at VictoryFunds.com.

Share Classes
When you purchase shares of a Fund, you must choose a share class. The Victory Funds offer Class A, Class C, Class I, Class R, Class R6, and Class Y shares. Each share class represents an interest in the same portfolio of securities, but the classes differ in the sales charges, if any, and expenses that apply to your investment, allowing you and your Investment Professional to choose the class that best suits
26

Choosing a Share Class
your investment needs. Not all Victory Funds offer all classes of shares, and some classes of shares are available for purchase only by eligible shareholders. The Victory Funds may offer additional classes of shares in the future.
Deciding which share class best suits your investment needs depends on a number of factors that you should discuss with your Investment Professional, including: how long you expect to hold your investment, how much you intend to invest, and the total expenses associated with each share class.
The Funds reserve the right to change the eligibility criteria for purchasing a particular share class. For example, a class of shares may be available to purchase only by retirement plans or by institutional investors. The Funds may also waive any applicable eligibility criteria or investment minimums at its discretion.
A Fund or any class may be closed at any time for failure to achieve an economical level of assets or for other reasons. Certain financial intermediaries who hold shares on behalf of their customers impose fees when the amount of shares of a particular class falls below a minimum threshold. To the extent that the amount of shares falls below that threshold, the Funds reserve the right to liquidate the shares held in accounts maintained by the financial intermediary.
Calculation of Sales Charges for Class A Shares
For historical expense information, see the “Financial Highlights”
at the end of this Prospectus.
Class A shares are sold at their public offering price, which is the NAV plus any applicable initial sales charge, also referred to as the “front-end sales load.” The sales charge may be reduced or eliminated for larger purchases, as detailed below or as described under Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers for Class A Shares. The investment levels required to obtain a reduced sales charge are commonly referred to as “breakpoints.”
All Class A purchases are subject to the terms described herein except for those purchases made through an intermediary specified in Appendix A - Variations in Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers Available Through Certain Intermediaries.
In order to obtain a breakpoint discount, you must inform the Victory Funds or your Investment Professional at the time you purchase shares of the existence of the other Victory accounts or purchases of Victory Funds that are eligible to be linked for the purpose of calculating the initial sales charge. The Fund or your Investment Professional may ask you for records or other information about other Victory Funds held in your Victory accounts and any linked accounts, such as accounts opened with a different financial intermediary.

This charge will be based on either the cost of the shares or NAV at the time of redemption, whichever is lower. No CDSC is imposed on shares representing reinvested distributions. You may be eligible for a reduction or waiver of this CDSC under certain circumstances. See CDSC Reductions for Class A and Class C Shares and Appendix A - Variations in Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers Available Through Certain Intermediaries for details.
Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers for Class A Shares
There are several ways you can combine multiple purchases of Class A shares of the Victory
Funds to take advantage of reduced sales charges or, in some cases, eliminate sales charges.
There are a number of ways you can reduce or eliminate your sales charges, which we describe below. In order to obtain a Class A sales charge reduction or waiver, you must provide your financial intermediary or the Funds' transfer agent, at the time of purchase, with current information regarding shares of any Victory Funds held in other accounts. This information must include account statements or other records (including written representations from the intermediary holding the shares) that indicate any accounts (e.g., retirement accounts) established (i) with the Victory Funds and your Investment Professional; (ii) with other financial intermediaries; and (iii) in the name of immediate family household members (spouse or domestic partner and children under 21) with regard to Rights of Accumulation.
The availability of a sales charge reduction or waiver discussed below will depend upon whether you purchase your shares directly from the Funds or through a financial intermediary. If you are eligible for a sales charge reduction because you own shares of other Victory Funds, you must notify the Funds or your financial intermediary at the time of purchase of any relationship or other facts qualifying you for sales charge reductions or waivers. Some intermediaries impose different policies for sales charge waivers and reductions. These variations are described in Appendix A — Variations in Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers Available Through Certain Intermediaries. Except as described with respect to the intermediaries specified in Appendix A, all Class A shares are subject to the terms stated below. In order to obtain waivers and discounts that are not available through your intermediary, you must purchase Fund shares directly from the Funds or through another intermediary.
You can find additional information regarding sales charges and their reductions, free of charge, at vcm.com/policies, by clicking on Victory Funds Pricing Policies.
You may reduce or eliminate the sales charge applicable to Class A shares in a number of ways:
Breakpoint - Purchase a sufficient amount to reach a breakpoint (see Calculation of Sales Charges for Class A Shares above);
Letter of Intent - If you anticipate purchasing $50,000 or more of Class A shares of the Fund, including any purchase of other Victory Funds of any share class (except money market funds and any assets held in group retirement plans), within a 13-month period, you may qualify for a sales charge breakpoint as though you were investing the total amount in one lump sum. In order
28

Choosing a Share Class
to qualify for the reduced sales charge, you must submit a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “Letter”) within 90 days of the start of the purchases. Each investment you make after signing the Letter will be entitled to the sales charge applicable to the total investment indicated in the Letter. You must start with a minimum initial investment of at least 5.00% of the total amount you intend to purchase. A portion of the shares purchased under the Letter will be held in escrow until the total investment has been completed. In the event you do not complete your commitment set forth in the Letter in the time period specified, sufficient escrowed shares will be redeemed to pay any applicable front-end sales charges;
Right of Accumulation - Whereas a Letter of Intent allows you to qualify for a discount by combining your current purchase amount with purchases you intend to make in the near future, a Right of Accumulation allows you to reduce the initial sales charge on a Class A investment by combining the amount of your current purchase with the current market value of prior investments made by you, your spouse (including domestic partner), and your children under age 21 in any class of shares of any Victory Fund (except money market funds and any assets held in group retirement plans). The value of eligible existing holdings will be calculated by using the greater of the current value or the original investment amount. To ensure that you receive a reduced price using the Fund’s Right of Accumulation, you or your Investment Professional must inform the Funds that the Right applies each time shares are purchased and provide sufficient information to permit confirmation of qualification;
Reinstatement Privilege - You may reinvest at NAV all or part of your redemption proceeds within 90 days of a redemption of Class A shares of a Fund;
Waiver - The Victory Funds will completely waive the sales charge for Class A shares in the following cases:
Purchases of at least $250,000 for certain Funds or $1 million for others;
Purchases by certain individuals associated with the Victory Funds or service providers (see “Eligibility of Individuals Associated with the Victory Funds and Fund Service Providers”);
Purchases by registered broker-dealers, financial intermediaries or their agents or affiliates who have agreements with the Funds' distributor (the “Distributor”), if the shares are purchased for their own account, purchased for retirement plans of their employees or sold to registered representatives or full-time employees (or their immediate families), provided that such purchase is for one of the foregoing types of accounts;
Purchases for trust or other advisory accounts established with a financial institution and fee-based investment products or accounts;
Reinvestment of proceeds from a liquidation distribution of Class A shares of a Victory Fund held in a deferred compensation plan, agency, trust, or custody account;
Purchases by retirement plans, including Section 401 and 457 plans sponsored by a Section 501(c)(3) organization and certain non-qualified deferred compensation arrangements that operate in a similar manner to qualified plans. Investors nonetheless may be charged a fee if they effect transactions in Class A shares through a broker or agent;
Purchases by participants in no transaction fee programs offered by certain broker-dealers (sometimes referred to as “supermarkets”);
Purchases by certain financial intermediaries who offer shares to self-directed investment brokerage accounts that may or may not charge a transaction fee to its customers;
Shareholders investing directly with the Fund who do not have a third-party financial intermediary or registered representative assigned, or who invest directly in certain products sponsored by the Adviser or its affiliates;
Purchases by CMS Energy employees participating in a Victory prototype Roth IRA plan by way of payroll deduction from CMS Energy; and
29

Choosing a Share Class
Individuals who reinvest the proceeds of redemptions from Class I, Class R6, or Class Y shares of a Victory Fund within 60 days of redemption.
You should inform the Fund or your Investment Professional at the time of purchase of the sales charge waiver category which you believe applies.
CDSC for Class A Shares
A CDSC of 0.75% may be imposed on certain redemptions of Class A shares purchased without an initial sales charge if any of those shares are redeemed within 18 months of purchase. This charge will be based on either the cost of the shares or NAV at the time of redemption, whichever is lower. No CDSC is imposed on shares representing reinvested distributions.
More information is available in CDSC Reductions and Waivers for Class A and Class C Shares and Appendix A – Variations in Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers Available Through Certain Intermediaries. All Class A purchases are subject to the terms described herein except for those purchases made through the intermediaries specified in Appendix A.
CDSC for Class C Shares
You will pay a 1.00% CDSC on any Class C shares you sell within 12 months of purchase. The CDSC is based on the current value of the shares being sold or their NAV when purchased, whichever is less. There is no CDSC on shares you acquire by reinvesting your dividends or capital gains distributions. You may be eligible for reduction or waiver of this CDSC under certain circumstances. There is no CDSC imposed when you exchange your shares for Class C shares of another Victory Fund; however, your exchange is subject to the same CDSC schedule that applied to your original purchase.
An investor may, within 90 days of a redemption of Class C shares, reinvest all or part of the redemption proceeds in the Class C shares of any Victory Fund at the NAV next computed after receipt by the transfer agent of the reinvestment order. Class C share proceeds reinvested do not result in a refund of any CDSC paid by the shareholder, but the reinvested shares will be treated as CDSC exempt upon reinvestment. The shareholder must ask the Distributor for such privilege at the time of reinvestment.
To keep your CDSC as low as possible, each time you sell shares we will first sell shares in your account that are not subject to a CDSC. If there are not enough of these to meet your sale, we will sell the shares in the order they were purchased.
More information is available in CDSC Reductions and Waivers for Class A and Class C Shares and Appendix A – Variations in Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers Available Through Certain Intermediaries.
CDSC Reductions and Waivers for Class A and Class C Shares
No CDSC is imposed on redemptions of Class A and Class C shares in the following circumstances:
To the extent that the shares redeemed:
are no longer subject to the holding period for such shares;
resulted from reinvestment of distributions; or
were exchanged for shares of another Victory Fund as allowed by the Prospectus, provided that the shares acquired in such exchange or subsequent exchanges will continue to remain subject to the CDSC, if applicable, calculated from the original date of purchase until the applicable holding period expires. In determining whether the CDSC applies to each redemption, shares not subject to a CDSC are redeemed first;
Following the death or post-purchase disability of:
a registered shareholder on an account; or
30

Choosing a Share Class
a settlor of a living trust, of shares held in the account at the time of death or initial determination of post-purchase disability;

tax free returns of excess contributions or returns of excess deferral amounts;
distributions on the death or disability of the account holder;
distributions for the purpose of a loan or hardship withdrawal from a participant plan balance; or

32

Information About Fees
Distribution and Service Plans
In accordance with Rule 12b-1 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, the Trust has adopted Distribution and Service Plans for Class A, Class C and Class R shares of the Funds.
Under the Class A Distribution and Service Plan, a Fund will pay to the Distributor a monthly fee at an annual rate of up to 0.25% of its average daily net assets of of Class A shares. Under the Class R Distribution and Service Plan, a Fund will pay to the Distributor a monthly fee at an annual rate of up to 0.50% of its average daily net assets of of Class R shares. The fee is paid for general distribution services, for selling Class A and Class R shares of the Fund and, as applicable, for providing personal services to shareholders. Distribution and selling services are provided by the Distributor or by agents of the Distributor and include those services intended to result in the sale of Fund shares. Personal services to shareholders are generally provided by broker-dealers or other intermediaries and consist of responding to inquiries, providing information to shareholders about their Fund accounts, establishing and maintaining accounts and records, providing dividend and distribution payments, arranging for bank wires, assisting in transactions and changing account information.
Under the Class C Distribution and Service Plan, a Fund will pay to the Distributor a monthly fee at an annual rate of 1.00% of the average daily net assets of its Class C shares. Of this amount, 0.75% of the Fund’s Class C shares average daily net assets will be paid for general distribution services and for selling Class C shares. The Fund will pay 0.25% of its Class C shares average daily net assets to compensate financial institutions that provide personal services to Class C shareholders of the Fund. Distribution and selling services are provided by the Distributor or by agents of the Distributor and include those services intended to result in the sale of the Fund’s Class C shares. Personal services to shareholders are generally provided by broker-dealers or other financial intermediaries and consist of responding to inquiries, providing information to shareholders about their Fund accounts, establishing and maintaining accounts and records, providing dividend and distribution payments, arranging for bank wires, assisting in transactions and changing account information.
Because Rule 12b-1 fees are paid out of a Fund’s assets and on an ongoing basis, over time these fees will increase the cost of your investment and may cost you more than paying other types of sales charges.
Other Payments to Financial Intermediaries
Except with respect to Class R6 shares, if you purchase Fund shares through an Investment Professional, a broker-dealer, or other financial intermediary, the Fund may pay for sub-transfer agent, recordkeeping and/or similar administrative services. In addition, the Adviser (and its affiliates) may make substantial payments out of its own resources, including the profits from the advisory fees the Adviser receives from the Funds, to affiliated and unaffiliated dealers or other Investment Professionals and service providers for distribution, administrative and/or shareholder servicing activities. The Adviser also may reimburse the Distributor (or the Distributor's affiliates) for making these payments. Some of these distribution-related payments may be made to dealers or other Investment Professionals for marketing, promotional or related expenses; these payments are often referred to as “revenue sharing.” The Adviser (and its affiliates) also may pay fixed fees for the listing of a Fund on a broker-dealer’s or financial intermediary’s system. Such payments are not considered to be revenue sharing payments.
In some circumstances, these types of payments may create an incentive for a dealer or Investment Professional or its representatives to recommend or offer shares of the Victory Funds to its customers. You should ask your dealer or Investment Professional for more details about any such payments it receives.
33

Information About Fees
No compensation, administrative payments, sub-transfer agency payments or service payments are paid to broker-dealers or other financial intermediaries from Fund assets, or from the resources of the Adviser or its affiliates on sales of or investments in Class R6 shares.

Sometimes an Investment Professional will charge you for its services. This fee will be in addition to, and unrelated to, the fees and expenses charged by the Funds.
Mutual funds must obtain and verify information that identifies investors opening new accounts. If the Funds are unable to collect the required information, you may not be able to open your account. Additional details about the Funds' Customer Identification Program are available in the section “Important Fund Policies.”
If you participate in a retirement plan that offers one of the Victory Funds as an option, please consult your employer for information on how to purchase shares of the Victory Funds through the plan, including any restrictions or limitations that may apply.
Paying for Your Initial Purchase
If you wish to make an investment directly into the Victory Funds, make your check payable to the “Victory Funds.” All checks must be drawn on U.S. banks. If your check is returned as uncollectible for any reason, you will be charged for any resulting fees and/or losses.

Additionally, bank starter checks are not accepted for the shareholder’s initial investment into the Funds. All payments must be denominated in U.S. dollars.
Minimum Investments
If you would like to buy Class A or Class C shares, the minimum investment required to open an account is $2,500 ($1,000 for IRA accounts), with additional investments of at least $50.  Different intermediaries may impose different minimum investments. These variations are described in Appendix A – Variations in Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers Available Through Certain Intermediaries. If you would like to buy Class I, Class R, Class R6 or Class Y shares, you must be an Eligible Investor, as discussed in the section Choosing a Share Class — Eligibility Requirements to Purchase. Eligible Investors may be subject to a minimum investment amount as detailed in that section.
For Class C shares, individual purchases of $1,000,000 and above will automatically be made in Class A shares.
If your account falls below the minimum investment amount, we may ask you to reestablish the minimum investment. If you do not do so within 60 days, we may close your account and send you the value of your account.
35

How to Buy Shares
The minimum investment required to open an account may be waived or lowered for employees and immediate family members of the employees, of the Adviser, the Administrator, and their affiliates. In addition, the minimum investment required may be waived when a Fund is purchased through an Advisory Program, within qualified retirement plans or in other similar circumstances. Although the Funds may sometimes waive the minimum investment, when they do so, they always reserve the right to reject initial investments under the minimum at their discretion.
There is no minimum investment required to open an account or for additional investments in Victory Simple IRAs.
A Fund reserves the right to change the criteria for eligible investors and the investment minimums.

How to Exchange Shares
There may be limits on the ability to exchange between certain Victory Funds.
You can obtain a list of Victory Funds available for exchange by calling
800-539-FUND (800-539-3863) or by visiting VictoryFunds.com
The shares of any class of a Fund may be exchanged for the shares of any other class offered by the Fund or the same class of any other class of any Victory Fund, either through your Investment Professional or directly through the Fund, subject to the conditions described below:
Exchanges are subject to any CDSC, minimum investment limitation or eligibility requirements described in the applicable Prospectus and SAI. You may be required to provide sufficient information to establish eligibility to exchange into a new share class.
To exchange with another Victory Fund, the other Victory Fund must be eligible for exchange with your Fund.
Shares of the Victory Fund selected for exchange must be available for sale in your state of residence.
If you have questions about these, or any of the Funds' other exchange policies, please consult Victory Customer Service or your Investment Professional before requesting an exchange.
Before exchanging, you should read the Prospectus of the other Victory Fund you wish to exchange into, which may be subject to different risks, fees, and expenses.
Class C Share Conversion
Class C shares of the Fund will automatically convert to Class A shares in the month following the eight-year anniversary date of the purchase of the Class C shares. Your financial intermediary may have a conversion schedule that is shorter than eight years. Class C conversions will be effected at the relative NAV of each such class without the imposition of any sales charge, fee or other charge.
You may be able to voluntarily convert your Class C shares before the stated anniversary to a different share class of the same Fund that has a lower total annual operating expense ratio provided certain conditions are met. This voluntary conversion feature is intended for shares held through a financial intermediary offering a fee-based or wrap fee program that has an agreement with the Adviser or the Distributor specific for this purpose. Generally, Class C shares are not eligible for conversion until the applicable CDSC period has expired. Please contact your financial intermediary for additional information.
Processing Your Voluntary Exchange/Conversion
If your exchange or conversion request is received and accepted by the Funds, an Investment Professional or other intermediary by the close of trading as described in the section titled, “Share Price,” then your request will be processed the same day. If received after the close of trading, your request will be processed on the next business day. Please contact your financial intermediary regarding the tax consequences of any exchange or conversion.
Exchanges will occur at the respective NAVs of the Funds' share classes involved in the exchange next calculated after receipt and acceptance of your exchange request in good order, plus any applicable sales charge described in the Prospectus. Share class conversions will be based on the respective NAV of each class as of the trade date of the conversion. Consequently, you may receive fewer shares or more shares than originally owned, depending on that day’s NAVs.
38

How to Exchange Shares
Requesting an Exchange
You can exchange shares of the Funds by telephone, by mail or via the Internet. You cannot exchange into an account with a different registration or tax identification number.
By Telephone
Unless you indicate otherwise on the account application, Victory Customer Service will be authorized to accept exchange instructions received by telephone.
By Mail
Send a letter of instruction signed by all registered owners or their legal representatives to the Victory Funds.
Via the Internet
You may also exchange shares via the Internet at VictoryFunds.com if you are a registered user.
Other Exchange Rules You Should Know
The Funds may refuse any exchange purchase request if the Adviser determines that the request is associated with a market timing strategy. The Funds may terminate or modify the exchange privilege at any time upon 60 days’ notice to shareholders.
An exchange of Fund shares for shares of another Victory Fund constitutes a sale for tax purposes unless the exchange is made within an IRA or other tax-deferred account.
For information on how to exchange shares of a Fund that were purchased through your employer’s retirement plan, including any restrictions and charges that the plan may impose, please consult your employer.

How to Sell Shares
There are a number of convenient ways to sell your shares.
If your redemption request is received in good order by the close of trading on the NYSE, your redemption will be processed the same day. Your redemption will not be processed until the next business day if it is received after the close of trading on the NYSE. You cannot redeem your shares at VictoryFunds.com.
BY TELEPHONE
The easiest way to redeem shares is by calling 800-539-FUND (800-539-3863). When you fill out your original application, be sure to check the box marked “Telephone Authorization.” You have the following options for receiving your redemption proceeds:
Mail a check to the address of record;
Wire funds to a previously designated domestic financial institution;
Mail a check to a previously designated alternate address; or
Electronically transfer your redemption via ACH to a previously designated domestic financial institution.
Victory Funds’ transfer agent records all telephone calls for your protection and takes measures to verify the identity of the caller. If the transfer agent properly acts on telephone instructions and follows reasonable procedures to ensure against unauthorized transactions, none of the Trust, its servicing agents, the Adviser, or the transfer agent will be responsible for any losses. If the transfer agent does not follow these procedures, it may be liable to you for losses resulting from unauthorized instructions.
If there is an unusual amount of market activity and you cannot reach the transfer agent or your Investment Professional by telephone, consider placing your order by mail.
BY MAIL
Use the regular U.S. mail or overnight mail address to redeem shares. You can use the same mailing addresses listed for purchases. Send us a letter of instruction indicating your Fund account number, amount of redemption, and where to send the proceeds. A Medallion signature guarantee is required for the following redemption requests:
Your account registration has changed within the last 15 business days;
The check is not being mailed to the address on your account;
The check is not being made payable to the owner of the account;
The redemption proceeds are being transferred to another Victory Fund account with a different registration; or
The check or wire is being sent to a different bank account than was previously designated.
You can get a Medallion signature guarantee from a financial institution — such as a commercial bank, broker-dealer, credit union, clearing agency, or savings bank — that is a member of a Medallion signature guarantee program.
BY WIRE
If you want to receive your proceeds by wire, you must establish a Fund account that will accommodate wire transactions. If you call before the close of trading on the NYSE, your funds will be wired on the next business day.
BY ACH
You may transfer your proceeds by ACH to a domestic bank. Normally, your redemption will be processed on the same day if your request is received before the close of trading on the NYSE. If your request is received after the close of trading it will be processed on the next business day.
40

How to Sell Shares
Systematic Withdrawal Plan
If you check this box on the Account Application or on the Account Maintenance Form, we will send monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual payments to the person you designate. The minimum withdrawal is $25, and you must have a balance of $5,000 or more at the time you establish the Systematic Withdrawal Plan. If the payment is to be sent to an account of yours, we will need a voided check to activate this feature. If the payment is to be made to an address different from your account address, we will need a Medallion signature guaranteed letter of instruction. You should be aware that each withdrawal may be a taxable transaction. Also, each withdrawal reduces your account balance, and eventually your account balance may be depleted. However, you cannot automatically close your account using the Systematic Withdrawal Plan. If your balance falls below the initial purchase minimum, we may ask you to bring the account back to the minimum balance. If you decide not to increase your account to the minimum balance, your account may be closed and the proceeds mailed to you.
Additional Information About Redemptions
Redemption proceeds from the sale of Fund shares purchased by a check or through ACH will be held until the purchase check or ACH has cleared, which will take up to 10 business days.
We typically expect to send the proceeds from your share redemption within one business day after we execute your order, but we may take up to seven business days to send redemption proceeds, regardless of payment type. When you sell shares through your financial intermediary, you can ask the intermediary to tell you when you can expect to receive the proceeds of your redemption.
A Fund may suspend your right to redeem your shares in the following circumstances:
During non-routine closings of the NYSE;
When the SEC determines either that trading on the NYSE is restricted or that an emergency prevents the sale or valuation of the Fund’s securities; or
When the SEC orders a suspension to protect the Fund’s shareholders.
A Fund typically uses cash and cash equivalents held in its portfolio or sells portfolio assets to meet redemption requests. In unusual circumstances or under stressed market conditions, the Fund may use other methods to raise cash to meet redemption requests. For example, the Fund may draw funds from a line of credit or borrow available cash held by other Victory Funds under an “interfund lending program” in reliance on an exemptive order from the SEC.
A Fund will pay redemptions by any one shareholder during any 90-day period in cash up to the lesser of $250,000 or 1.00% of the Fund’s net assets. The Funds reserve the right to pay the remaining portion “in kind,” that is, in portfolio securities rather than cash. Securities received pursuant to an in-kind redemption are subject to market risk until sold and may be subject to brokerage and other fees.
If you choose to have your redemption proceeds mailed to you and either the U.S. Postal Service is unable to deliver the redemption check to you or the check remains outstanding for more than six months, the Funds reserve the right to reinvest the check in shares of the Fund at its then current NAV until you give the Fund different instructions. No interest will accrue on amounts represented by uncashed redemption checks.
41

Distributions and Taxes
Buying a dividend. You should check the Funds' distribution schedule before you invest.
If you buy shares of a Fund shortly before it makes a distribution,
some of your investment may come back to you as a taxable distribution.
As a shareholder, you are entitled to your share of net income and capital gains on a Fund's investments. Each Fund passes its earnings along to investors in the form of dividends. Dividends paid by a Fund represent the net income from dividends and interest earned on investments after expenses. Each Fund will distribute short-term gains, as necessary; and if the Fund makes a long-term capital gain distribution, it is normally paid once a year.
Ordinarily, each Fund declares and pays dividends annually. However, a Fund may not always pay a dividend or distribution for a given period. Each class of shares declares and pays dividends separately.
Distributions can be received in one of the following ways. Please check with your Investment Professional if you are unsure of which option is right for you.
Reinvestment Option
You can have distributions automatically reinvested in additional shares of your Fund. If you do not indicate another choice on your Account Application, you will be assigned this option automatically.
Cash Option
If you elect to receive your distributions by check, and the distribution amount is $25 or less, the amount will automatically be reinvested in the Fund. Otherwise, a check will be mailed to you no later than seven days after the dividend payment date. If you choose to have your distribution proceeds mailed to you and either the U.S. Postal Service is unable to deliver the distribution check to you or the check remains outstanding for at least six months, the distribution option on your account will default to the reinvestment option as described above. Each Fund reserves the right to reinvest the check in shares of the Fund at its then current NAV until you give the Fund different instructions. No interest will accrue on amounts represented by uncashed distribution checks.
Income Earned Option
You can automatically reinvest your dividends in additional Fund shares and have your capital gains paid in cash, or reinvest capital gains and have your dividends paid in cash.
Directed Distributions Option
In most cases, you can automatically reinvest distributions in shares of another Victory Fund. If you reinvest your distributions in a different Victory Fund, you may pay a sales charge on the amount of reinvested distributions.
Directed Bank Account Option
In most cases, you can automatically transfer distributions to your bank checking or savings account. Under normal circumstances, the transfer agent will transfer your distributions within seven days of the dividend payment date. The bank account must have a registration identical to that of your Fund account.
Your choice of distribution should be set up on the original Account Application.
If you would like to change the option you selected, please call 800-539-FUND (800-539-3863).

Distributions and Taxes
Important Information About Taxes
The tax information in this Prospectus is provided as general information. You
should review the more detailed discussion of federal income tax considerations
in the SAI and consult your tax adviser regarding the federal, state, local, or
foreign tax consequences resulting from your investment in a Fund.
Each Fund expects to pay no federal income tax on the earnings and capital gains it distributes to shareholders.
Qualified dividend income received from a Fund by noncorporate shareholders will be taxed at long-term capital gain rates to the extent attributable to qualified dividend income received by the Fund, subject to certain holding period requirements. Nonqualified dividends, dividends received by corporate shareholders and dividends from a Fund’s short-term capital gains are taxable as ordinary income. Dividends from a Fund’s long-term capital gains are taxable as long-term capital gains.
You will pay tax on dividends from a Fund whether you receive them in cash, additional shares of the Fund or you reinvest them in shares of another Victory Fund.
Dividends from a Fund that are attributable to interest on certain U.S. government obligations, if any, may be exempt from certain state and local income taxes. The extent to which ordinary dividends are attributable to these U.S. government obligations will be provided on the tax statements you receive from a Fund.
An exchange of a Fund’s shares for shares of another Victory Fund will be treated as a sale. When you sell or exchange shares of a Fund, you generally will recognize any gain or loss.
An exchange of one class of a Fund’s shares for shares of another class of the same Fund generally constitutes a nontaxable exchange.
Distributions from a Fund and gains from the disposition of your shares may also be subject to state and local income tax.
An additional 3.8% Medicare tax will be imposed on certain net investment income (which includes dividends and gain recognized on a disposition of shares) of certain U.S. individuals, estates, and trusts.
Certain dividends paid to you in January will be taxable as if they had been paid to you the previous December.
Tax statements will be mailed from each Fund by mid-February showing the amounts and tax status of distributions made to you in the prior calendar year.
Because your tax treatment depends on your purchase price and tax position, you should keep your regular account statements for use in determining your tax.
A Fund is generally required by law to provide you and the Internal Revenue Service with certain cost basis information related to the sale or redemption of any of your shares in the Fund acquired on or after January 1, 2012 (including distributions that are reinvested in additional shares of the Fund).
A Fund may be required to withhold tax from dividends and redemption proceeds if you fail to give your correct social security or taxpayer identification number, fail to make required certifications, or the Fund is notified by the Internal Revenue Service that backup withholding is required.
If you are a nonresident alien individual, foreign trust or estate, foreign corporation or foreign partnership, a Fund’s ordinary income dividends may be subject to a 30% U.S. withholding tax. See the section titled “TAXES—Foreign Shareholders” in the SAI for details.
Under the “Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act,” unless certain foreign entities comply with certain IRS requirements that generally require them to report information regarding U.S.
43

Distributions and Taxes
persons investing in, or holding accounts with, such entities, a 30% U.S. withholding tax may apply to dividends paid by a Fund to such entities. See the section titled “TAXES—Foreign Shareholders” in the SAI for details.
The Funds may provide estimated capital gain distribution information through the website at VictoryFunds.com.
Dividends and interest received by a Fund and capital gains recognized by a Fund may give rise to withholding and other taxes imposed by foreign countries. Tax conventions between certain countries and the United States may reduce or eliminate such taxes. You may be able to claim a credit or take a deduction for foreign taxes paid by a Fund if certain requirements are met.

Important Fund Policies
Customer Identification Program
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a new account, and to determine whether such person’s name appears on government lists of known or suspected terrorists and terrorist organizations.
As a result, the Victory Funds must obtain the following information for each person who opens a new account:
Name;
Date of birth (for individuals);
Residential or business street address (although post office boxes are still permitted for mailing); and
Social security number, taxpayer identification number, or other identifying number.
You may also be asked for a copy of your driver’s license, passport, or other identifying document in order to verify your identity. In addition, it may be necessary to verify your identity by cross-referencing your identification information with a consumer report or other electronic database. Additional information may be required to open accounts for corporations and other entities. Federal law prohibits the Victory Funds and other financial institutions from opening a new account unless they receive the minimum identifying information listed above. After an account is opened, the Victory Funds may restrict your ability to purchase additional shares until your identity is verified. The Victory Funds may close your account or take other appropriate action if it is unable to verify your identity within a reasonable time. If your account is closed for this reason, your shares will be redeemed at the NAV next calculated after the account is closed.
Account Maintenance Information
For the following non-financial transactions, the Victory Funds require proof that your signature authorizing a transaction is authentic. This verification can be provided in all cases by either a Signature Validation Program (“SVP”) stamp or a Medallion signature guarantee (“MSG”). In some instances a Notary Public stamp is an acceptable alternative. As with an MSG, an SVP stamp can also be obtained from a financial institution that is a member of the SVP program.

Market Timing
The Victory Funds discourage frequent purchases and redemptions of Fund shares (market timing). Market timing allows investors to take advantage of market inefficiencies, sometimes to the disadvantage of other shareholders. Market timing increases Fund expenses to all shareholders by increasing portfolio turnover. In addition, market timing could potentially dilute share value for all other shareholders by requiring the Fund to hold more cash than it normally would.
45

Important Fund Policies
The Funds' Board of Trustees has adopted policies and procedures with respect to market timing. In order to prevent or minimize market timing, the Funds (or the Adviser, as appropriate) will:
Employ “fair value” pricing, as described in this Prospectus under Share Price, to minimize the discrepancies between a security’s market quotation and its perceived market value, which often gives rise to market timing activity; and
Monitor for suspected market timing based on “short-term transaction” activity, that is, a purchase or redemption of a Fund and, as applicable, a subsequent redemption or purchase of the same Fund, or an exchange of all or part of that same Fund.
In monitoring for market timing activity, we consider, among other things, the frequency of your trades and whether you acquired your Fund shares directly through the transfer agent or whether you combined your trades with a group of shareholders in an omnibus account or otherwise placed your order through a securities dealer or other financial intermediary.
Frequent trading by a shareholder is generally a characteristic of market timing. Therefore, any account in which Fund shares are acquired directly through the transfer agent, or where the Fund can adequately identify the shareholder, with a history of three short-term transactions within 90 days or less is suspected of market timing and the shareholder’s trading privileges (other than redemption of Fund shares) will be suspended.
We may make exceptions to the “short-term transaction” policy for certain types of transactions if, in the opinion of the Adviser, under the oversight of the Board of Trustees, the transactions do not represent short-term or excessive trading or are not abusive or harmful to the Funds, such as, but not limited to, systematic transactions, required minimum retirement distributions, transactions initiated by the Funds or administrator, and transactions by certain qualified funds-of-funds.
If you acquired shares through an omnibus account or otherwise placed your order through a securities dealer, or other financial intermediary (such as investment advisers, broker-dealers, third-party administrators or insurance companies), and market timing is suspected, different purchase and exchange limitations may apply. We may rely upon a financial intermediary’s policy to deter short-term or excessive trading (i) if we believe that the financial intermediary’s policy is reasonably designed to detect and deter transactions that are not in the best interests of the Funds, or (ii) if we receive an undertaking from the financial intermediary to enforce short-term or excessive trading policies on behalf of the Funds that provide a substantially similar level of protection for the Funds against such transactions. If you hold your Fund shares through a financial intermediary, you are advised to consult the intermediary to determine what purchase and exchange limitations apply to your account.
We reserve the right to reject or cancel a purchase or exchange order for any reason without prior notice. We will deny your request to purchase or exchange your shares if we believe that the transaction is part of a market timing strategy.
The Funds' market timing policies and procedures may be modified or terminated at any time under the oversight of the Board of Trustees.
Portfolio Holdings Disclosure
A description of each Fund's policies and procedures with respect to the disclosure of the Funds' portfolio securities is available in the Funds' SAI, which is available upon request and on the Funds' website at VictoryFunds.com.

Important Fund Policies
Performance
The Victory Funds may advertise the performance of a Fund by comparing it to other mutual funds with similar objectives and policies. Performance information also may appear in various publications. Any fees charged by Investment Professionals may not be reflected in these performance calculations.
Advertising information may include the average annual total return of the Funds calculated on a compounded basis for specified periods of time. Total return information will be calculated according to rules established by the SEC. Such information may include performance rankings and similar information from independent organizations and publications.
Statements and Reports
You will receive a periodic statement reflecting any transactions that affect the balance or registration of Fund shares in your account. You will receive a confirmation after any purchase, exchange, or redemption. If your account has been set up by an Investment Professional, Fund activity will be detailed in that account’s statements. Share certificates are not issued. Twice a year, you will receive a financial report of the Fund. By February 15th of each year, you will be mailed an IRS form reporting distributions for the previous year, which also will be filed with the IRS.
Shareholder Communications
In order to eliminate duplicate mailings to an address at which two or more shareholders with the same last name reside, the Victory Funds may send only one copy of any shareholder reports, proxy statements, prospectuses and their supplements, unless you have instructed us to the contrary. You may request that the Victory Funds send these documents to each shareholder individually by calling the Victory Funds at 800-539-FUND (800-539-3863), and they will be delivered promptly.
While this Prospectus and the SAI of the Trust describe pertinent information about the Trust and the Funds, neither this Prospectus nor the SAI represents a contract between the Trust or the Funds and any shareholder.

Financial Highlights
The following financial highlights tables reflect historical information about shares of the Funds and are intended to help you understand each Fund's financial performance for the past five years, or, if shorter, the period of its operations. Certain information shows the results of an investment in one share of a Fund. To the extent a Fund invests in other funds, the Total Annual Operating Expenses included in a Fund's Fees and Expenses Table may not correlate to the ratio of expenses to average net assets in the financial highlights below. The total returns in the table represent the rate that an investor would have earned (or lost) on an investment in each Fund (assuming reinvestment of all dividends and distributions).
The information presented  for the fiscal periods ended on or after December 31, 2019, has been audited by Cohen & Company, Ltd., the Funds' independent registered public accounting firm, whose report, along with the Funds' financial statements, are included in the Funds' annual report to shareholders, which is available upon request. The information for all years prior to December 31, 2019, was audited by a different independent registered public accounting firm.
