Mutual funds are sold by prospectus. A prospectus containing more information, including investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses for any mutual fund can be obtained by contacting your investment professional or the mutual fund company. The prospectus contains this and other information about the fund. Please read and consider the information carefully before investing.
Risks: All mutual funds are subject to market risk. Please see the prospectus for the specific risks associated with an investment in the fund.
Total returns for periods of less than one year are not annualized. Average annual total returns for periods of greater than one year are annualized and reflect the reinvestment of all distributions.
Other share classes with different sales charges are available. The return of each class will vary, depending upon its applicable sales charge.
Because these share classes are sold without a front-end sales charge or a contingent deferred sales charge, such charges are not applied to their Average Annual Total Returns.
Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance is no indication of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted, as market volatility may affect short-term performance. Click on the Returns tab on the Profile page to view the most recent month-end returns.
*Performance for certain funds prior to inception date may reflect that of a predecessor/successor share class adjusted to reflect fees and expenses (if applicable) for the share class shown ("Extended Performance"). Extended Performance "extends" the performance history of the newer share class based on the related older share class or predecessor/successor fund. Actual share class performance is utilized for the since inception period. Other time periods not indicated by an asterisk (*) reflect actual share class performance. Extended Performance is not an indication of how the fund will perform in the future. Please see the prospectus for further information.
Peer group returns are for illustrative purposes only and do not represent the performance of the fund. Returns assume the reinvestment of dividends and other distributions.
The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10- year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
