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. • For dividend-paying stocks, dividends are not guaranteed and may decrease without notice. • Mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. • Different investment styles may go in and out of favor, which may cause the Fund to underperform the broader stock market. • Integration of environmental, social, and/or governance (ESG) characteristics into the investment process may not work as intended. • To the extent the Fund focuses on one or more sectors, the Fund may be subject to increased volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur. • 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, economic and regulatory developments.
