Standard Deviation
Standard Deviation:

A measure of the degree to which an individual probability value varies from the distribution mean. The higher the number, the greater the risk.


The sensitivity of a portfolio's returns to changes in the return of the market as measured by the index or benchmark that represents the market. A portfolio with a beta of 1.0 behaves exactly like the index. A beta less than 1.0 suggests lower risk than the index, while a beta greater than 1.0 indicates a risk level higher than the index.

The proportion of the variation in a portfolio's returns that can be explained by the variability of the returns of an index. High R-squared (close to 1.0) is usually consistent with broad diversification.


A measure of risk-adjusted performance; alpha reflects the difference between a portfolio's actual return and the return that could be expected give its risk as measured by beta.

Sharpe Ratio
Sharpe Ratio:

A risk-adjusted measure calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the portfolio's historical risk-adjusted performance.
Information Ratio
Information Ratio:

The ratio of portfolio returns in excess of a market index to the variability of those excess returns; in effect, information ratio describes the value added by active management in relation to the risk taken to achieve those returns.

Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. You could lose money on an investment in the Fund.   Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Emerging Market stocks may be especially volatile. In exchange for higher growth potential, investing in stocks of Smaller Companies may entail greater price volatility and less liquidity than investing in stocks of 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. Growth Stocks may be more volatile than value stocks due to their relatively high valuations, and growth investing may fall out of favor with investors. 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. Investment Model: A manager’s proprietary model may not adequately allow for existing or unforeseen market factors or the interplay between such factors.  Volatility management techniques may not always be successful in reducing volatility, may not protect against market declines, and may limit the Portfolio’s participation in market gains. Mistakes in the construction and implementation of the investment models may create errors or limitations that might go undetected.  There is no guarantee that the use of these investment models will result in effective investment decisions.  Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Company; Currency; Initial Public Offerings; Investing through Stock Connect; Liquidity; Market; Market Capitalization; Other Investment Companies; Real Estate Companies and Real Estate Investment Trusts (“REITs”); and Securities Lending.
