Mutual fund investing involves risks and loss of principal is possible. Investing in small or micro cap funds will be more volatile and loss of principal could be greater than investing in large cap or more diversified funds. Investing in foreign securities, especially in emerging markets, entails special risks such as currency fluctuations and political uncertainties, which are described in more detail in the prospectus. Non-diversification increases the risk of loss to the Fund if the value of these securities decline. The investment objective of the Funds is long-term growth of capital.

An investor should consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. To obtain a prospectus, containing this and other information, visit or call (800) 551-1700. Please read it carefully before investing.
