A WORD ABOUT RISK

All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its stated objective. The Fund's share price may fluctuate due to market risk and/or security selections that may underperform the market or relevant benchmarks. Small-cap securities can have greater risk and volatility than large-cap securities. Foreign investments can be riskier and more volatile than U.S. investments due to the adverse effects of currency exchange rates, differences in market structure and liquidity, as well as political and economic developments in foreign countries and regions (e.g., "Brexit"). The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase the Fund's transaction costs and an investor's tax liability. The Fund's focus on investments in particular sectors may increase its volatility and risk of loss if there are adverse economic consequences in those sectors.
