Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by allocating assets among different asset classes. There is no guarantee a fund will achieve its stated objective. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. ● Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments. These risks may be greater for investments in emerging markets. ● Small- and mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. ● Different investment styles may go in and out favor, which may cause a fund to underperform the broader stock market. ● The main risk of real estate related securities is that the value of the underlying real estate may decrease in value. ● The Fund may focus on investments in particular geographic regions or countries, so it may be more exposed to risks and volatility than a more broadly diversified fund.
