Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. An investment in securities of Larger Companies carries with it the risk that the company (and its earnings) may grow more slowly than the economy as a whole or not at all. Value Investing Securities that appear to be undervalued may never appreciate to the extent expected and are generally more sensitive to changing economic conditions, Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. The risks of Emerging Markets securities may be intensified. 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. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Company, Convertible Securities; Dividend Risks; Interest Rate, Investment Model, Market Trends; Inability to Sell Securities; Real Estate Companies and Real Estate Investment Trusts ("REITs") 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.
