¹Compound growth calculations are used only for the purpose of illustrating the effects of compound growth and are not intended to reflect future value of any mutual fund or returns on investment in any mutual fund.

Series F is a wrap or fee-for-service program and as such, the performance shown does not include the advisory fee paid by the investor to the dealer that would have reduced returns. Other series of units of the fund are subject to higher management fees and/or expenses which result in lower returns for those series than cited above.  Annual returns are calendar year returns for the last ten years or since inception if the Fund has less than ten years of history. Performance is annualized except for periods of less than one year.
