Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data shown without sales charge does not include the load or CDSC. If reflected, the load or fee would reduce the performance quoted. To discourage mutual fund timers the Fund imposes a 2.00% redemption fee on shares held for less than 90 days. Performance data does not reflect the redemption fee. If it had, returns would be reduced. Investment performance reflects fee waivers in effect. In the absence of such waivers, total return would be reduced.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.

Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund:
The Fund invests in foreign securities which involve political, economic and currency risks, greater volatility and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. Small- and medium-capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large-capitalization companies. REITs and foreign real estate companies may be less diversified than other pools of securities, may have lower trading volumes and may be subject to more abrupt or erratic price movements than the overall securities markets. Risks of derivatives include the possible imperfect correlation between the value of the instruments and the underlying assets; risks of default by the other party to the transaction; risks that the transactions may result in losses that partially or completely offset gains in portfolio positions; and risks that the instruments may not be liquid.
