Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns shown for the Fund include the reinvestment of all dividends, if any. Total return calculations reflect the effect of the Advisers fee waiver agreement for the Fund. If such fee waivers had not occurred, the quoted performance would be lower.
