Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.  • Focusing on investments that involve climate change opportunities or sustainable and environmental initiatives may result in foregoing certain investments and underperformance comparative to funds that do not have a similar focus. • Risks of focusing investments on the healthcare related sector include regulatory and legal developments, patent considerations, intense competitive pressures, rapid technological changes, potential product obsolescence, and liquidity risk. • Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than US investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political, economic and regulatory developments.
