Risk Considerations

Global economies and securities markets can and have experienced significant volatility which has increased the risks associated with an investment in the Funds. Volatility in the international and U.S. markets may result in significant periods of inflation or deflation, currency devaluations, national defaults, municipal defaults, major bank defaults, corporate defaults and bankruptcies, all of which may have adverse effects on the portfolios and custodian/sub-custodians of the Funds. These conditions may persist for an indefinite period of time.

  • Stock Market Risk: the Fund could lose value if the individual stocks in which it invests or overall stock markets in which such stocks trade go down.
  • Foreign Investment Risk: foreign securities may be more volatile, harder to price and less liquid than U.S. Securities
  • Emerging Markets Risk: risks are greater for securities of companies in emerging markets countries because the countries may have less stable governments, more volatile currencies and less established markets. Medium-Sized Company Risk: Stocks of medium-sized companies tend to be more volatile and less liquid than stocks of large companies
