SI = Since Inception. Fund Inception: 07/22/1996
Operating Expenses:   Net  0.72% |  Gross  0.72%

Share Class Inception: 2/28/17
Class F-shares performance prior to 2/28/17 reflects Class I-shares performance and operating expenses, and, prior to 8/31/06, the performance and operating expenses of Class A-shares (excluding sales charges). Performance for Class F-shares prior to its inception date would have differed if Class F- operating expenses had been reflected. Since Inception (SI) performance is calculated from 7/22/96.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.

A WORD ABOUT RISK

 

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by allocating assets among different asset classes and/or portfolio management teams. There is no guarantee a fund will achieve its stated objective. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. Mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments. These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets. The fund’s focus on investments in particular sectors may increase its volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur.
