Average Annual Total Returns
Total return describes the return to the investor after net operating expenses but before any sales charges are imposed. Lipper average is unmanaged, is based on the average return of all funds in this category, and does not take into consideration applicable sales charges. Unless noted otherwise, Lipper averages and index returns reflect performance beginning the closest month-end date to the Fund's inception. Benchmark since inception average is based on Class A inception date. SEC standardized return describes the return to the investor after net operating expense and maximum sales charges are imposed. All returns assume share price changes as well as the compounding effect of reinvested dividends and capital gains. Returns may reflect fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements. Without such, returns would be lower. All returns 1-year or less are cumulative.
Lipper International Large-Cap Core Funds invest at least 75% of their equity assets in companies strictly outside of the US with market capitalizations (on a three-year weighted basis) above Lipper's international large-cap floor and typically have average characteristics compared to their large-cap-specific subset of the MSCI EAFE Index. The Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) EAFE Index is a weighted index of performance that reflects stock price movements in Europe, Australasia, and the Far East. An investment cannot be made directly in an index or average. All indexes and averages are unmanaged.

The Fund invests in foreign securities, which are subject to currency fluctuation and political uncertainty; and derivative securities, which may carry market, credit, and liquidity risks. Emerging markets are countries that are beginning to emerge with increased consumer potential driven by rapid industrial expansion and economic growth. Investing in emerging markets is very risky due to the additional political, economic and currency risks associated with these underdeveloped geographic areas. These risks may increase the Fund's share price volatility. There is no guarantee the Fund's objective will be achieved.
Average weighted market capitalization is the average market capitalization of stocks in a fund, each weighted by its proportion of assets. Beta measures a fund's sensitivity to changes in the overall market relative to its benchmark. The P/E ratio (Source: Morningstar, Inc.) relates the price of a stock to the per-share earnings of the company. P/E is calculated using a harmonic weighted average, which excludes outliers that can easily skew results. Standard deviation depicts how widely returns vary around its average and is used to understand the range of returns most likely for a given fund. A higher standard deviation generally implies greater volatility. Turnover is the rate of trading in a portfolio, higher values imply more frequent trading. Beta is benchmarked against the MSCI EAFE, an unmanaged index, which reflects stock price movements in Europe, Australia, and the Far East and is a broad indicator of how foreign stocks have performed. An investment cannot be made directly in an index. Due to data availability, statistics may not be as of the current reporting period.
