A WORD ABOUT RISK

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee a fund will achieve its stated objective. 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. The Fund’s focus on investments in particular sectors may increase its volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur. The consideration of certain ESG factors may limit the number of investment opportunities available to The Fund, which may lead it to underperform funds that are not subject to such criteria.
