Risks To Consider
Market Risk: The market values of the portfolio’s holdings rise and fall from day to day, so investments may lose value.
Foreign (Non-US) Risk: Non-US securities may be more volatile because of political, regulatory, market and economic uncertainties associated with such securities. Fluctuations in currency exchange rates may negatively affect the value of the investment or reduce returns. These risks are magnified in emerging or developing markets.
Capitalization Size Risk (Small/Mid): Small- and mid-cap stocks are often more volatile than large-cap stocks?smaller companies generally face higher risks due to their limited product lines, markets and financial resources.
Non-Diversification Risk: The Fund is a "non-diversified" investment company, which means that the Fund may invest a larger portion of its assets in fewer companies than a diversified investment company. This increases the risks of investing in the Fund since the performance of each stock has a greater impact on the Fund's performance. To the extent that the Fund invests a relatively high percentage of its assets in securities of a limited number of companies, the Fund may also be more susceptible than a diversified investment company to any single economic, political or regulatory occurrence.
Derivatives Risk: Investing in derivative instruments such as options, futures, forwards or swaps can be riskier than traditional investments, and may be more volatile, especially in a down market.
