The
Sierra Group of Companies
today announced that Sierra Investment
Management has again been named to the 2018 FT
300
, Financial Times' list of the top U.S. registered
independent investment advisors, assessed on traits desirable to clients.

The fifth edition of the FT 300 is presented as an elite group, not a
competitive ranking of one to 300, and areas of consideration include
adviser AUM, asset growth, the company's age, industry certifications of
key employees, SEC compliance record and online accessibility. The
formula the FT uses to grade advisers is based on these six broad
factors and calculates a numeric score for each firm. Over 2000
registered investment advisor (RIA) firms are invited to apply and the
final group was chosen from more than 760 applications.

"We at Sierra Investment Management are honored to be included among the
advisory firms selected as the FT 300," said David
Wright
, co-founder and Managing Director of Sierra. "It's an
incredible accomplishment to be part of such and esteemed group, and a
testament to our focus on client service and our conservative,
thoughtful approach to investing and financial advice."

The research for the FT 300 was conducted by Ignites Research, an FT
sister publication.

Since 1987 Sierra has been helping retirees and other conservative

Past performance does not guarantee future results and there is no
assurance that any investment strategy will achieve its investment
objective. Investors should carefully consider the investment
objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the Sierra Mutual Funds.
This and other information about the funds is contained in the

or by calling toll free 1-800-729-1467. The Sierra Mutual Funds are
distributed by Northern Lights Distributors, LLC, member
FINRA/SIPC.

Neither Sierra Investment Management, Inc., Ocean Park Asset Management,
Inc. nor Wright Fund Management LLC are affiliated with Northern Lights
Distributors, LLC.

The Sierra Tactical All Asset Fund invests in underlying funds,
including mutual funds and ETFs. In some instances it may be less
expensive for an investor to invest in the underlying funds directly.
There is also a risk that investment advisers of those underlying funds
may make investment decisions that are detrimental to the performance of
the Fund. Investments in underlying funds that own small and
mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more
established organizations to adverse business or economic developments.
Investments in underlying funds that invest in foreign equity and debt
securities could subject the Fund to greater risks including currency
fluctuation, economic conditions, and different governmental and
accounting standards.

The Sierra Tactical Core Income Fund invests in underlying funds that
may invest in foreign emerging market countries that may have relatively
unstable governments, weaker economics, and less-developed legal
systems, which do not protect investors. In general, the price of a
fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. Underlying fund
investments in lower-quality bonds, known as high-yield or junk bonds,
present greater risk than bonds of higher quality. Municipal securities
are subject to the risk that legislative changes and economic
developments may adversely affect the value of the Fund's investments.
REIT risks include declines from deteriorating economic conditions,
changes in property value, and defaults by borrower. Underlying funds
that own small and mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable
than larger, more established organizations to adverse business or
economic developments. In some instances it may be less expensive for an
investor to invest in the underlying funds directly.
