Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value as interest rates rise. High yield bonds involve greater risks of default or downgrade and are more volatile than investment grade securities, due to the speculative nature of their investments. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility and lower trading volume. International investments may involve risk or capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to these factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. REIT investments are subject to changes in economic conditions, credit risk and interest rate fluctuations. The Fund may invest in derivatives, which are often more volatile than other investments and may magnify the Fund's gains or losses.
