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. The intrinsic value of stocks selected for the Fund may never be realized by the market, and the prices of value stocks may go down. While investing in value stocks may limit downside risk over time, the Fund may produce more modest gains than riskier stock funds as a trade-off for this potentially lower risk. The Fund invests in small and/or mid-sized companies, which involves additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility than larger companies. The Fund may participate in a securities lending program. 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.
