Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • 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. These risks may be greater, and include additional risks, for investments in emerging markets or in a particular geographic region or country. • Fixed-income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, and interest-rate risk. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. • Risks associated with investments in China include currency fluctuation, political, economic, social, environmental, regulatory and other risks, including risks associated with differing legal standards. • Investments linked to prices of commodities may be considered speculative. Significant exposure to commodities may subject the Fund to greater volatility than traditional investments. The value of such instruments may be volatile and fluctuate widely based on a variety of factors. • Different investment styles may go in and out of favor, which may cause underperformance to the broader stock market.
