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. • Small- and mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. • Risks of focusing investments on the utilities and industrials sectors include regulatory and legal developments, competitive pressures, pricing and rate pressures (utilities), rapid technological changes, potential product obsolescence, and liquidity risk. • Risks of focusing on investments that involve sustainability and environmentally responsible investment criteria may influence investment performance relative to the Fund's benchmark or competing funds and expose the Fund to increased risks related to downturns or other adverse developments in that market segment.
