The Fund invests in non-U.S. securities. Investing in non-U.S. securities may entail risk due to foreign economic and political developments; this risk may be higher when investing in emerging markets. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accounting and taxation policies outside the U.S. can raise or lower returns. There are specialized risks associated with small capitalization issues, such as market illiquidity and greater market volatility, than large capitalization issues.

2 Definitions: Active Share measures the difference between portfolio holdings and the benchmark. The higher the active share, the greater the difference. Standard Deviation measures the volatility of the Fund’s returns. Beta measures the Fund’s sensitivity to market movements. Sharpe Ratio uses the Fund’s standard deviation and average excess return over the risk-free ratio to determine reward per unit of risk. Alpha measures excess return relative to the market that is attributable to active portfolio management. R-squared represents the percentage of the portfolio’s movements that can be explained by general market movements.
