A measure of the degree to which an individual probability value varies from the distribution mean. The higher the number, the greater the risk.
The sensitivity of a portfolio's returns to changes in the return of the market as measured by the index or benchmark that represents the market. A portfolio with a beta of 1.0 behaves exactly like the index. A beta less than 1.0 suggests lower risk than the index, while a beta greater than 1.0 indicates a risk level higher than the index.
The proportion of the variation in a portfolio's returns that can be explained by the variability of the returns of an index. High R-squared (close to 1.0) is usually consistent with broad diversification.
A measure of risk-adjusted performance; alpha reflects the difference between a portfolio's actual return and the return that could be expected give its risk as measured by beta.
A risk-adjusted measure calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the portfolio's historical risk-adjusted performance.
The ratio of portfolio returns in excess of a market index to the variability of those excess returns; in effect, information ratio describes the value added by active management in relation to the risk taken to achieve those returns.

Investment Risks: You could lose money on an investment in the Fund. Any of the following risks, among others, could affect Fund performance or cause the Fund to lose money or to underperform: Company:The price of a company’s stock could decline or underperform. The Fund may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance. Companies that issue Dividend yielding equity securities are not required to continue to pay dividends on such securities and can reduce or eliminate the payment of dividends in the future. Foreign Investing: poses special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Because the Fund may invest in Other Investment Companies, you may pay a proportionate share of the expenses of that other investment company, in addition to the expenses of the Fund. Risks of the REIT's are similar to those associated with direct ownership of Real Estate, such as changes in real estate values and property taxes, interest rates, cash flow of underlying real estate assets, supply and demand, and the management skill and credit worthiness of the issuer. Investment Model: A manager’s proprietary model may not adequately allow for existing or unforeseen market factors or the interplay between such factors. Volatility management techniques may not always be successful in reducing volatility, may not protect against market declines, and may limit the Fund’s participation in market gains. Mistakes in the construction and implementation of the investment models may create errors or limitations that might go undetected. There is no guarantee that the use of these investment models will result in effective investment decisions. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Currency, Liquidity, Market, Market Capitalization, Securities Lending. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.
