Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The 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. Fund performance current to the most recent month-end may be lower or higher than the performance quoted and can be obtained by calling 1.855.824.1355 x51495. Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund's future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns.
