On September 13, 2021, the Board of Trustees (Board) of the Ivy Funds approved the Fund name change to “Delaware Ivy Multi-Asset Income Fund” (formerly, Delaware Ivy Apollo Multi-Asset Income Fund, and before that, Ivy Apollo Multi-Asset Income Fund) and the appointment of the Macquarie Investment Management Austria Kapitalanlage AG (MIMAK) as a sub-advisor. The Board approved the portfolio manager team of Stefan Löwenthal and Jürgen Wurzer of MIMAK and Aaron D. Young of Delaware Management Company (DMC) as new Fund portfolio managers. In addition, the Board approved appointing Macquarie Investment Management Europe Limited, Macquarie Funds Management Hong Kong Limited, and Macquarie Investment Management Global Limited to provide discretionary investment management services in a sub-advisory capacity. The Board also approved the termination of the Fund’s current sub-advisors. In connection with these changes, the Board approved applicable revisions to the Fund’s investment strategies and benchmarks. All changes took effect on or about November 15, 2021.

The Fund’s investment manager, Delaware Management Company (Manager), may permit its affiliates, Macquarie Investment Management Global Limited (MIMGL) and Macquarie Funds Management Hong Kong Limited, to execute Fund security trades on behalf of the Manager. The Manager may also seek quantitative support from MIMGL. The Fund’s investment manager, Delaware Management Company (Manager), may seek investment advice and recommendations from its affiliates: Macquarie Investment Management Europe Limited (MIMEL), Macquarie Investment Management Austria Kapitalanlage AG (MIMAK), and Macquarie Investment Management Global Limited (MIMGL) (together, the “Affiliated Sub-Advisors”). The Manager may also permit these Affiliated Sub-Advisors to execute Fund security trades on behalf of the Manager and exercise investment discretion for securities in certain markets where DMC believes it will be beneficial to utilize an Affiliated Sub-Advisor’s specialized market knowledge.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.

Risk controls and asset allocation models do not promise any level of performance or guarantee against loss of principal.

International investments entail risks including fluctuation in currency values, differences in accounting principles, or economic or political instability. Investing in emerging markets can be riskier than investing in established foreign markets due to increased volatility, lower trading volume, and higher risk of market closures. In many emerging markets, there is substantially less publicly available information and the available information may be incomplete or misleading. Legal claims are generally more difficult to pursue.

Investing in the real estate industry includes risks such as declines in real estate value, lack of availability of mortgage funds, overbuilding, extended vacancies, increases in property taxes, changes in zoning laws, costs from cleanup of environmental problems, uninsured damages, variations in rents, and changes in interest rates.

Fixed income securities and bond funds can lose value, and investors can lose principal as interest rates rise. They also may be affected by economic conditions that hinder an issuer’s ability to make interest and principal payments on its debt. This includes prepayment risk, the risk that the principal of a bond that is held by a portfolio will be prepaid prior to maturity at the time when interest rates are lower than what the bond was paying. A portfolio may then have to reinvest that money at a lower interest rate.

IBOR risk is the risk that changes related to the use of the London interbank offered rate (LIBOR) or similar rates (such as EONIA) could have adverse impacts on financial instruments that reference these rates. The abandonment of these rates and transition to alternative rates could affect the value and liquidity of instruments that reference them and could affect investment strategy performance.

Natural or environmental disasters, such as earthquakes, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other severe weather-related phenomena generally, and widespread disease, including pandemics and epidemics, have been and can be highly disruptive to economies and markets, adversely impacting individual companies, sectors, industries, markets, currencies, interest and inflation rates, credit ratings, investor sentiment, and other factors affecting the value of the Portfolio’s investments. Given the increasing interdependence among global economies and markets, conditions in one country, market, or region are increasingly likely to adversely affect markets, issuers, and/or foreign exchange rates in other countries. These disruptions could prevent the Portfolio from executing advantageous investment decisions in a timely manner and could negatively impact the Portfolio’s ability to achieve its investment objective. Any such event(s) could have a significant adverse impact on the value and risk profile of the Portfolio.
