This Fund may be suitable for investors who have a short- to medium-term investment horizon, possess a relatively low tolerance for risk and want some exposure to the growth potential of the stock market tempered by a larger allocation to short-term, fixed income securities.
Foreign and emerging market securities may involve additional risks, including social and political instability, reduced market liquidity, currency volatility, less available public information about the issuers of securities, less stringent regulatory standards and a lack of uniform accounting, auditing and financial standards. Small company stocks are generally riskier than large company stocks due to greater volatility and less liquidity. This Fund is subject to credit risk and interest rate risk. Interest rate risk means, when interest rates rise, the value of the existing bonds decreases and vice versa. Changes in interest rates have a bigger impact on long-duration holdings than on short-duration holdings. This description of risks is provided as a summary of the principal investment risks associated with this mutual fund. Refer to the Fund's prospectus for more detailed risk information.
