About Risk: Fund performance is sensitive to stock market volatility. Investments in foreign instruments or currencies can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical or other conditions. In emerging countries, these risks may be more significant. Smaller companies are generally subject to greater price fluctuations, limited liquidity, higher transaction costs and higher investment risk than larger, established companies. Changes in real estate values or economic downturns can have a significant negative effect on issuers in the real estate industry, including REITs. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Funds may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.
