each a series of Manager Directed Portfolios (the “Trust”)
Supplement dated June 10, 2021 to each Fund’s Summary Prospectus, Prospectus, and
Statement of Additional Information (“SAI”), each dated April 30, 2021

The reorganizations are subject to certain conditions including approval by shareholders of the Target Funds. Each Acquiring Fund will have an investment objective and principal investment strategies and limitations that are substantially similar to the investment objective, strategies and limitations of each respective Target Fund.

Dynamic Beta investments LLC, the sub-adviser to each Target Fund, will continue to serve as the sub-adviser to each Acquiring Fund after the closing of each reorganization...
