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. Small-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.
