Emerging Market — investing may be subject to additional economic, political, legal, liquidity, and currency risks not associated with more developed countries.

Equity Securities are more volatile and carry more risk than other forms of investments, including investments in high-grade fixed income securities. The net asset value per share of this Fund will fluctuate as the value of the securities in the portfolio changes.

Geographic Concentration Risk — A small number of companies and industries may represent a large portion of the market in a particular country or region, and these companies and industries can be sensitive to adverse social, political, economic or regulatory developments in that country or region.

Derivative — are financial instruments that derive their value from another instrument, security, index, currency or other asset. Each Fund may use derivatives for hedging purposes or to enhance return (which may be considered speculative since the Fund is primarily seeking to achieve gains, not offset the risk of other positions). A Fund may enter into derivatives transactions with respect to any security or other instrument in which it is permitted to invest. A Fund incurs costs in opening and closing derivative positions. Each Fund does not intend to invest more than 5% of its assets in derivative instruments. In December of 2015, the SEC proposed a new rule to regulate registered investment companies’ use of derivatives. If adopted, the effect of such rule on the Funds could be substantial and adverse.
