The investment objectives and primary investment strategies of each of the funds will remain the same, and the expense ratios of the funds are not expected to be affected by the changes.

After careful consideration, the funds' board of trustees determined that the advisor teams are now configured to a combination of investment approach, expertise, and resources to better serve shareholders going forward.
