Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. • 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 may be greater for investments in emerging markets or if the Fund focuses in a particular geographic region or country. • Small- and mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. • The Fund's focus on investments in particular sectors may increase its volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur.
