Performance as of December 31, 2017
The advisor has contractually agreed to waive management fees and/or reimburse the Fund’s operating expenses in order to limit the Fund’s total annual fund operating expenses to 1.10% of average daily net assets of the Fund. The agreement will continue in effect at least through October 31, 2018, subject thereafter to annual re-approval of the agreement by the Fund’s Board of Directors. The Fund’s shareholders indirectly bear the expenses of the other funds in which the Fund invests (Acquired Funds). The operating expenses may not correlate to the expense ratio in the Financial Highlights in this Fund’s prospectus, because the Financial Highlights include only the operating expenses incurred by the Fund, not the indirect costs of investing in the Acquired Funds.
