The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance information shown. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Portfolio will fluctuate, so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. See above “Average Annual Total Returns %” for performance information current to the most recent month-end. Returns for the other share classes will vary due to different charges and expenses. Performance assumes reinvestment of distributions and does not account for taxes.

Total investment return at net asset value has been calculated assuming a purchase at net asset value at the beginning of the period and a sale at net asset value at the end of the period; and assumes reinvestment of dividends, capital gain distributions and return of capital distributions/allocations, if any, in accordance with the provisions of the dividend reinvestment plan. Net asset value equals total Fund assets net of Fund expenses such as operating costs and management fees. Total investment return at net asset value is not annualized for periods less than one year.

Benchmark Disclosures

S&P Developed Ex-U.S. SmallCap Index

The S&P Developed Ex-U.S. SmallCap Index is an unmanaged float adjusted index which captures the bottom 15% of companies in the developed markets based on the cumulative market capitalization of each country, excluding the United States, within the S&P Global Broad Market Index, which covers all publicly listed equities in 47 countries with a float adjusted market capitalization of US $100 million or greater and a minimum annual trading liquidity of US $50 million. The Index does not reflect fees, brokerage commissions, taxes or other expenses of investing. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.

Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Emerging Market stocks may be especially volatile. In exchange for higher growth potential, investing in stocks of Smaller Companies may entail greater price volatility and less liquidity than investing in stocks of larger companies. The Fund may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance. Growth Stocks may be more volatile than value stocks due to their relatively high valuations, and growth investing may fall out of favor with investors. Prices of Value-Oriented Securities tend to correlate more closely with economic cycles than growth-oriented securities, they generally are more sensitive to changing economic conditions. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Convertible Securities Risks; Market Trends Risks; Other Investment Companies' Risks; Price Volatility Risks; Inability to Sell Securities Risks; and Securities Lending Risks. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.
