Important Risk Considerations

The fund may not achieve its objective and/or you could lose money on your investment in the fund.

Stock markets and investments in individual stocks are volatile and can decline significantly in response to issuer, market, economic, industry, political, regulatory, geopolitical, and other conditions.

Emerging markets can have less market structure, depth, and regulatory, custodial or operational oversight and greater political, social, and economic instability than developed markets.

Investments in foreign markets can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, currency, economic, industry, political, regulatory, geopolitical, or other conditions.

Investments in small-cap companies can be more volatile than investments in larger companies.

The fund's performance may be closely tied to the performance of companies in a limited number of sectors and could be more volatile than the performance of less focused funds.

Please see the prospectus for further information on these and other risk considerations.
