Foreign securities are more volatile, harder to price and less liquid than U.S. securities. They are subject to different accounting and regulatory standards, and political and economic risks.
These risks are enhanced in emerging markets countries. Equity stocks of small-cap companies carry greater risk, and more volatility than equity stocks of larger, more established companies.
Concentrating investments in the Asia-Pacific region subjects the Fund to more volatility and greater risk of loss than geographically diverse funds.
Please read the prospectus for more detailed information regarding these risks.
