Percentage values in data are rounded to the nearest tenth of one percent, so the values may not sum to 100% due to rounding.  Percentage values may be derived from different data sources and may not be consistent with other Fund literature. 

The P/E Ratio is the share price of a stock as of the report date, divided by the forecasted earnings per share for a 12-month period (FY1) and 24 month period (FY2). For the Fund, this is the weighted harmonic average estimated P/E ratio of all the underlying stocks in the Fund, excluding negative earners. There is no guarantee that the composition of the Fund will remain unchanged, or that forecasted earnings of a stock will be realized. Information provided is for illustrative purposes only.

The information contained in this document does not, in any way, constitute investment advice. It should not be assumed that any investment will be profitable or will equal the performance of the portfolios or any securities or any sectors mentioned herein.

Risk Considerations

The value of an investment in the Fund can go down as well as up and possible loss of principal is a risk of investing. Investments in international and emerging market securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. The Fund invests in holdings denominated in foreign currencies, and is exposed to the risk that the value of the foreign currency will increase or decrease. The Fund invests primarily in equity securities, which may result in increased volatility. Investments in focused funds may be subject to greater share price volatility as a larger portion of their assets may be invested in the securities of a single issuer compared to diversified funds. These and other risks associated with investing in the Fund can be found in the Prospectus.
