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.

Tracking Error
Tracking Error:

A measure of how closely the returns of a portfolio tend to follow the returns of the index to which it is benchmarked; specifically, the variability of excess returns around the average.

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. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Investing in stocks of Smaller-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. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Market Trends Risks; Other Investment Companies 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.
