Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Because the Fund is a "fund of funds", an investor will indirectly bear the principal risks of the underlying funds, including but not limited to, risks associated with smaller companies, foreign securities, emerging markets, non-diversification, high yield bonds, fixed income investments and short sales. The Fund will bear its share of the fees and expenses of the underlying funds. Shareholders will pay higher expenses than would be the case if making direct investments in the underlying funds. The Underlying Funds may engage in short sales, which could result in such a fund's investment performance suffering if it is required to close out a short position earlier than it had intended.
Because the fund invest in ETFs, it is subject to additional risks that do not apply to conventional mutual funds, including the risks that the market price of an ETF's shares may trade at a discount to its net asset value ("NAV"), an active secondary trading market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange in which they trade, which may impact a Fund's ability to sell its shares. Small capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large capitalization companies. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods; these risks are greater for investments in emerging markets.
While the fund is no load, management fees and expenses still apply. Please refer to the prospectus for further details.
