The prices of equity securities change in response to many factors, including the historical and prospective earnings of the issuer, the value of its assets, general economic conditions, interest rates, investor perceptions and market liquidity.
Foreign securities have additional risks, including exchange-rate changes, decreased market liquidity, political instability and taxation by foreign governments.
Investment in securities in emerging market countries involves risks not associated with investments in securities in developed countries.
The Fund's use of a representative sampling approach will result in its holding a smaller number of bonds than are in the underlying Index, and may be subject to greater volatility.
Investing in securities of medium capitalization companies involves greater risk than customarily is associated with investing in larger, more established companies.
The Funds are non-diversified and can invest a greater portion of their assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund. As a result, changes in the market value of a single investment could cause greater fluctuations in Share price than would occur in a diversified fund. This may increase the Funds' volatility and cause the performance of a relatively small number of issuers to have a greater impact on the Funds' performance.
