NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --American Independence Financial
Services, LLC (American Independence), an independent investment manager based
in New York, announced today that it is launching a new investment strategy,
Dynamic Conservative Plus (DCP). The strategy will also be available through a
mutual fund, to be run by veteran manager Imanol Laresgoiti, and will make
tactical investments in a set of exchange traded funds (ETFs) across sub-asset
classes in the fixed-income, commodity, equity and alternative asset markets.
The Dynamic Conservative Plus Fund is available in Class A (AABBX) and
Institutional (TBBIX) share classes, and the fund's investment objective is
long term capital appreciation.

DCP uses a proprietary business cycle model and optimization engine to
allocate across a global portfolio of ETFs and manage downside-risk. The fund
is targeted at risk-conscious investors and intermediaries seeking to generate
total return while addressing investors' demands for a portfolio that moves
quickly to "safer," or defensive, sectors and away from riskier assets and

"Investors are increasingly challenged by low bond yields, volatile equity
markets, and the risk of rising interest rates and inflation. We believe a
dynamic, multi-asset class approach to generating total return represents an
opportunity to manage volatility and downside risk while targeting positive
returns," said John Pileggi, Managing Partner of American Independence. "We
have had the great fortune to identify Imanol Laresgoiti, a manager with a
record of both aptitude and achievement in managing tactical portfolios that
use ETFs and which seek to manage risk and volatility."

alternative mandates, having previously founded Luz Capital S.C. Luz Capital
provides consulting services and investment advice on sophisticated investment
strategies to abroad range of clients including high-net worth individuals,

allocation models and market neutral trading strategies. Mr. Laresgoiti is a
member of the Board Investment Committee of the 5thlargest mutual fund
manager in Mexico and investment advisor for the one of the 10 biggest
financial groups in Switzerland.

The Dynamic Conservative Plus Fund launched with a Special Meeting of

effective December 20, 2012.

Important Disclosures
Investing in the Fund involves risk. Equity securities are more volatile and
carry more risk than other forms of investments. The Fund may invest in small
and mid-cap securities that are more volatile than large cap stocks.

High Portfolio Turnover Rate Risk. High portfolio turnover rates could
generate capital gains that must be distributed to shareholders as short-term
capital gains taxed at ordinary income rates (currently as high as 35%) and
could increase brokerage commission costs.

Emerging Markets Risk. The Fund may invest in foreign securities that may
include securities of companies located in developing or emerging markets,
which entail additional risks, including: less social, political and economic
stability; smaller securities markets and lower trading volume, which may
result in less liquidity and greater price volatility; national policies that
may restrict securities investment opportunities, including restrictions on
investments in issuers or industries, or expropriation or confiscation of
assets or property; and less developed legal structures governing private or
foreign investment.

High Yield Securities. Lower rated securities are subject to greater risk of
loss of income and principal than higher rated securities and may have a
higher incidence of default than higher-rated securities. The prices of lower
rated securities are likely to be more sensitive to adverse economic changes
or individual corporate developments than higher rated securities

ETF Risks. The following are various types of risks to which the Fund is
subject based on the certain types of ETFs in which the Fund will be
investing: General ETF Risk. The cost to a shareholder of investing in the
Fund may be higher than the cost of investing directly in ETF shares and may
be higher than other mutual funds that invest directly in equities. You will
indirectly bear fees and expenses charged by the ETFs in addition to the
Fund's direct fees and expenses. Tracking Error Risk. There is no assurance
the ETFs the Fund may utilize will achieve their objectives. Additionally,
since many ETFs are managed to reflect daily price change objectives, there
will be a compounding effect if the ETFs are held for longer than one day.
