Class A shares have up to a 5.75% front-end sales charge and a 0.25% 12b-1 fee. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Performance prior to 1/1/09 reflects the performance of an unaffiliated sub-adviser. Returns prior to 6/23/08 reflect a predecessor fund’s performance. The inception date is that of the oldest share class. Performance of newer classes may be linked to the oldest share class. Index performance data was only available on month ends at the inception date so is shown from 8/31/00. Please consult the Fund’s prospectus for more detail. Total returns assume the reinvestment of all distributions. Total returns may reflect a waiver of part of the Fund’s fees for certain periods since inception, without which returns would have been lower. Indexes are unmanaged and provided for comparison purposes only. No fees or expenses are reflected. You cannot invest directly in an index.
Expenses stated as of the fund's most recent prospectus. All classes of the Fund have contractual waivers in place until 2/28/19 or the effective date of the 2018 annual update to the registration statement, whichever occurs first.
