Disclosures

Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. 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. 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. Investing in stocks of Risks of the REIT's are similar to those associated with direct ownership of Real Estate, such as changes in real estate values and property taxes, interest rates, cash flow of underlying real estate assets, supply and demand, and the management skill and credit worthiness of the issuer. Small- and Mid-Sized Companies may entail greater volatility and less liquidity than larger companies. 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. 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. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Convertible and Debt Securities Risks; Market Trends Risks; Other Investment Companies Risks; Price Volatility Risks; Inability to Sell Securities 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.
