The risks that the fund is subject to include market risk, company risk, index risk, foreign investment risks, and emerging markets risk. The risks associated with foreign investments are often magnified in emerging markets where there is greater potential for political, currency, and economic volatility. Securities issued in emerging market nations may be less liquid than those issued in more developed countries and foreign investors in these markets, such as this Fund, may be subject to special restrictions which could have an adverse impact on performance.
