The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance and expense ratios may be lower or higher than the data quoted. The Fund's total returns should not be expected to be the same as the returns of other funds, whether or not both funds have the same portfolio managers and/or similar names. The Fund's total returns include reinvested distributions but do not include the charges associated with the separate account products that offer this Fund. Such performance would have been lower if such charges were taken into account.

The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance and expense ratios may be lower or higher than the data quoted. The Fund's total returns should not be expected to be the same as the returns of other funds, whether or not both funds have the same portfolio managers and/or similar names. The Fund's total returns include reinvested distributions but do not include the charges associated with the separate account products that offer this Fund. Such performance would have been lower if such charges were taken into account.

  1. 1. Special Risks: Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes, regulatory and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Investments in securities of growth companies may be volatile. Mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger company stock. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. Diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss.
  2. 2. The net expense ratio (where applicable) also takes into account contractual fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements without which performance would have been less. These undertakings may not be amended or withdrawn for one year from the date of the current prospectus, unless approved by the Board.
  3. 3. Access index definitions.
  4. A. Daily net asset value and dollar change of the fund is as of the previous business day's closing. Fund net asset values are updated at approximately 7:00pm ET daily.
  5. B. The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance and expense ratios may be lower or higher than the data quoted. The Fund's total returns should not be expected to be the same as the returns of other funds, whether or not both funds have the same portfolio managers and/or similar names. The Fund's total returns include reinvested distributions but do not include the charges associated with the separate account products that offer this Fund. Such performance would have been lower if such charges were taken into account.
  6. C. "Year to Date" returns are cumulative, not annualized, and do not reflect sales charges (if sales charges are applicable to the Fund). These returns would be lower if sales charges were taken into consideration. Short-term returns may not be indicative of longer-term performance, which should also be considered when making investment decisions.
  7. D. There is no guarantee of the payment of any dividend or other distributions at any level.
