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 and may be less liquid than other types of investments. The main risk of real estate related securities is that the value of the underlying real estate may decrease in value. The Fund may be adversely affected when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund.
