Disclosures

Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. Growth stocks may be more volatile than value stocks due to their relatively high valuations, and growth investing may fall out of favor with investors. An investment in securities of Larger Companies carries with it the risk that the company (and its earnings) may grow more slowly than the economy as a whole or not at all. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Initial Public Offerings Risks; Market Trends Risks; Other Investment Companies Risks; Price Volatility Risks; Inability to Sell Securities Risks; and Securities Lending Risks. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.
