Foreign Securities Risk: The Fund may invest in foreign securities primarily in the form of American Depositary Receipts. Investing in the securities of foreign issuers also involves certain special risks, which are not typically associated with investing in U.S. dollar-denominated securities or quoted securities of U.S. issuers including increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market or economic developments. Investments in foreign securities also may be affected favorably or unfavorably by changes in currency rates and in exchange control regulations. Foreside Fund Service, LLC, Distributor.
