The Fund may invest in futures contracts, which are a type of derivative investment. Investing in derivatives could result in losing more than the amount invested. Investing in foreign securities entails additional risk not associated with domestic securities, such as currency fluctuations, economic and political instability and differences in accounting standards. Growth stocks typically are more volatile than value stocks; however, value stocks have a lower expected growth rate in earnings and sales. Because the Fund may invest in fewer companies than a more diversified portfolio, the fluctuating value of a single holding may have a greater impact on the value of the Fund. Please see the prospectus for a complete discussion of the Fund’s risks. There can be no assurances that the investment objectives of this Fund will be met.
