      Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.

      SI = Since Inception. Fund Inception: 08/06/1993

      Share Class Inception: 9/28/15.
      Class SDR-shares performance from 9/28/15 through 10/21/16 reflects the performance, fees, and expenses of R6 Class of the predecessor fund Schroder U.S. Opportunities Fund (the "Predecessor Fund") and, prior to 9/28/15, the performance, fees, and expenses of the Predecessor Fund's Investor Class. If Class SDR fees and expenses were reflected, performance would have differed. SI performance is calculated from 8/6/93.

      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. • Small-cap securities can have greater risks, including liquidity risk, and volatility than large-cap securities. • Integration of environmental, social, and/or governance (ESG) factors into the investment process may not work as intended. • To the extent the Fund focuses on one or more sectors, the Fund may be subject to increased volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur.
