The Fund's share price may fluctuate due to market risk and/or security selections that may underperform the market or relevant benchmarks.

Mid-cap securities can have greater risk and volatility than large-cap securities. The Fund's focus on investments in particular sectors may increase its volatility adverse economic consequences in those sectors. The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase the Fund's transaction costs. Growth investing may go out of favor, which may cause the Fund to underperform the broader stock market.
