Disclosures

Principal Risks

Investment Risks: All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. Prices of Value-Oriented Securities tend to correlate more closely with economic cycles than growth-oriented securities, they generally are more sensitive to changing economic conditions. Investing in stocks of Small- and Mid-Sized Companies may entail greater volatility and less liquidity than larger companies. The Fund may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance. Because the Fund may invest in Other Investment Companies, you may pay a proportionate share of the expenses of that other investment company, in addition to the expenses of the Fund. A manager’s proprietary investment model may not adequately allow for existing or unforeseen market factors or the interplay between such factors.  Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Convertible Securities Risks; Market Trends Risks; Price Volatility Risks; and Securities Lending Risks. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.
