Risks include declines in the value of real estate, general and economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property and defaults by borrowers. The value of assets in the real estate industry may go through cycles of relative underperformance and outperformance in comparison to equity securities markets in general.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or “star rating,” is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds and separate accounts) with at least a 3-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% 3-year rating for 36–59 months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60–119 months of total returns and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent 3-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Ratings are for the share class shown only; other classes may vary. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Price to Funds from Operations (“FFO”) — A ratio used by REITs to show relative value. FFO is calculated by adding back real estate depreciation and amortization expenses to earnings.

Weighted Average Market Cap — An index of stocks in which companies that have a greater overall market capitalization are more strongly represented than companies with smaller market capitalizations.

Standard Deviation — Depicts how widely returns varied over a certain period of time. A high standard deviation implies greater volatility and greater risk.

R-squared — Shows the percentage of a fund's performance that is explained by movements in the benchmark index. An R-squared of 100% indicates that all movements of a fund can be explained by movements in the benchmark.

Beta vs. Benchmark — Beta is a measure of a fund's sensitivity to market movements as defined by a fund’s benchmark. A fund with a higher beta relative to the benchmark is more volatile than the benchmark.

Beta vs. S&P 500® Index — Beta is a measure of a fund’s sensitivity to market movements as defined by the S&P 500® Index. A fund with a higher beta relative to the S&P 500® Index is more volatile than the S&P 500® Index.

Sharpe Ratio — A risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better a fund's historical risk-adjusted performance.

Information Ratio — Measures how much a fund outperformed the benchmark per unit of additional risk taken.

Net Asset Value — The Net Asset Value (NAV) is calculated by taking the closing market value of all the investments owned by a fund, plus all other assets such as cash, subtracting all liabilities, then dividing the result (total net assets) by the total number of shares outstanding.

Record Date — The distribution that an investor receives is calculated based on the number of shares that an investor owns on Record Date, typically using the share balance in an investor's account at the close of that day’s business.

Pay/Reinvest Date — The date on which distributions are posted to accounts for reinvestment or paid to shareholders who take distributions in cash.

Dividends — Dividends are income distributions to shareholders out of income from a fund’s investments.

Short-term Capital Gains — Distributions to shareholders derived from the profit of the sale of stocks or bonds held within a fund for a period of one year or less.

Long-term Capital Gains — Distributions to shareholders derived from the profit of the sale of stocks or bonds held within a fund for a period of more than one year.
