The performance data quoted represents past performance, and is no guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your accumulation units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

The risks that the fund is subject to include market risk, company risk, active management risk, foreign investment risks, and emerging markets risk. The risks associated with foreign investments are often magnified in emerging markets where there is greater potential for political, currency, and economic volatility. Securities issued in emerging market nations may be less liquid than those issued in more developed countries and foreign investors in these markets, such as this Fund, may be subject to special restrictions which could have an adverse impact on performance.
