A Word About Risk

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. Funds whose investments are concentrated in foreign countries may be subject to fluctuating currency values, different accounting standards, and economic and political instability. The value of the Series may be affected by changes in exchange rates between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar. Investments in emerging markets may be more volatile than investments in more developed markets.
