Class A shares have up to a 4.25% 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.

Effective February 25, 2013, the Fund merged its Class D shares into a newly created Institutional Class of shares. The performance, fees and expenses of the Institutional Class are identical to the performance, fees and expenses of the Class D shares. Returns prior to 6/23/08 reflect the performance of a predecessor fund. 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 have been 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.
