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: 03/31/2006

Share Class Inception: 10/24/16.
Performance prior to 10/24/16 for Class R4-shares reflects the performance, fees, and expenses of the Investor Class of the predecessor fund Schroder U.S. Small and Mid Cap Opportunities Fund. If Class R4 fees and expenses were reflected, performance would have differed. SI performance is calculated from 3/31/06.

The Fund’s Class R4 shares have not been in operation for 10 years. Therefore, the Calendar Year Returns (R4 Shares) chart includes performance and operating expenses of another class. For more information, see the prospectus.

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. • Mid-cap securities can have greater risks 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.
