Northern Lights Fund Trust Seeks to Acquire Mutual Funds

Trust Continues Expanding as Small- and Mid-Sized Funds Seek Cost Benefits

HAUPPAUGE, NY--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - Northern Lights Fund Trust, a shared mutual fund trust comprised of independent funds, announced that it is seeking to acquire additional mutual funds as it continues to expand. The Northern Lights Fund Trust is administered by Gemini Fund Services, LLC, an engaged partner to independent advisors as a provider of comprehensive, pooled investment solutions.

"The Northern Lights Fund Trust enables small- and mid-sized funds to compete in an increasingly costly and regulated environment, by providing operational efficiency, economies of scale, regulatory compliance and board oversight, and fund sales support," said Andrew Rogers, President, Gemini Fund Services. "As the Trust enjoys ongoing growth, it is looking to acquire additional mutual funds, including bond, equity and alternative funds. Funds seeking to be merged or acquired, and advisors interested in equitizing their fund, are welcome to contact us."

Advisors with mutual funds join the Trust in order to counteract the increasing costs of doing business and increased level of regulatory compliance in the mutual fund industry. The Trust currently represents 37 mutual funds and nearly $2 billion in assets, with several more funds in the process of joining. The Trust provides a number of advantages to help small- and mid-sized mutual funds compete and remain profitable. Currently, Gemini is expanding the Trust's distribution capabilities and internal sales efforts. The Trust also provides marketing exposure for member funds through coordinated trade show appearances and other efforts. In addition, the Trust's Northern Lights Advisory Council provides a key forum for advisors to network and develop partnerships with third-party vendors.

"Through the Trust, Gemini is working to help advisors improve distribution through our sister companies, which provide marketing support, arrange selling agreements and get funds listed on distribution platforms," Rogers continued. "By creating an association of independent funds, our Trust provides advantages on a scale otherwise not achievable."
