Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in foreign securities involve political, economic and currency risks, greater volatility and differences in accounting methods. The Funds' sustainability policy could cause them to perform differently compared to similar funds that do not have such a policy. This policy may result in the Funds foregoing opportunities to buy certain securities when it might otherwise be advantageous to do so, or selling securities for reasons when it might be otherwise disadvantageous for it to do so.
