A Word About Risk:
Investing in foreign and/or emerging market securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic, and political conditions. To the extent the Fund invests in issuers located within specific countries or regions, the Fund may be particularly affected by adverse markets, rates, and events which may occur in those countries and regions. Investing in other investment companies, including exchange-traded funds (ETFs), subjects the Fund to the risks of investing in the underlying securities or assets held by those funds. Investments in real estate securities, such as REITs are affected by economic conditions, interest rates, governmental actions and other factors. At times, the Fund’s investments may represent industries or industry sectors that are interrelated or have common risks, making it more susceptible to any economic, political, or regulatory developments or other risks affecting those industries and sectors. These risks may increase share price volatility.
