This fund is subject to stock market risk. Investing in foreign securities, particularly in emerging markets, presents, presents certain unique risks not associated with domestic investments, such as currency fluctuation, political and economic changes, including emerging markets and market risks. Stocks of small-cap companies involve greater risk than securities of larger, more-established companies, as they often have limited product lines, markets or financial resources and may be subject to more-erratic and more-abrupt market movements. Additionally, the fund concentrates its investments in climate change-related companies, increasing its vulnerability to industry risks and regulatory developments. All of these factors may result in greater share price volatility. Please read the prospectus for specific details regarding the fund's risk profile.
