NEW YORK--3D Printing and Technology Fund (TDPIX, TDPNX) changed its name today to 3D Printing, Robotics and Technology Fund to better reflect that many Fund holdings are in the robotics field, and reflecting an increasingly strong connection between the fields of 3D printing and robotics.


"3D printing continues to be a rapidly growing field as it disrupts traditional manufacturing and aids the growth of new medical, dental and bioprinting horizons," stated Alan Meckler, Lead Portfolio Manager. "Adding Robotics to our Fund name is logical as the robotics field is growing rapidly too and there are many sectors where the lines are blurred between 3D printers and robots. In fact 3D printers are essentially robots. We are excited to have one of the few investment vehicles in the mutual fund space that targets these two dynamic areas of growth."

3D Printing, Robotics and Technology Fund is managed by 3D Printing Fund Advisers, LLC, with Alan M. Meckler serving as Lead Portfolio Manager and John M. Meckler as Co-Portfolio Manager and Chief Compliance Officer.

3D Printing, Robotics and Technology Fund is available for purchase via online brokerages Schwab, Vanguard and Scottrade, as well as directly through the Funds website, http://www.3dpfund.com. In addition, the Fund is offered through Pershing, Matrix Financial, SEI Investments, and a number of other dealers and networks.

Investment from non-United States residents may be permitted on a case-by-case basis and only if permissible under the laws of the country in which the investor resides. This press release is not a solicitation or offer to sell the Fund.
