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. • Small- and mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. • The Fund may focus on investments in particular sectors, geographic regions or countries, so it may be more exposed to risks and volatility than a fund holding more geographically diverse investments. • Different investment styles may go in and out of favor, which may cause the Fund to underperform the broader stock market. • The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase its transaction costs and an investor's tax liability.
