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, economic and regulatory developments. These risks may be greater, and include additional risks, for investments in emerging markets. • Mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. • Integration of environmental, social, and/or governance (ESG) characteristics into the investment process may not work as intended. • The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase its transaction costs. • To the extent the Fund focuses on one or more sectors, geographic regions or countries, the Fund may be subject to increased volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur.
