Mutual fund investing involves risk, including the potential loss of principal.

Small and mid‐sized companies may offer the potential for higher returns, but are also subject to greater short‐term price fluctuations than larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in a limited number of securities and, as a result, the Fund's performance may be more volatile than the performance of other funds, holding more securities. At times, the Fund's investments may represent industries or industry sectors that are interrelated or have common risks, making it more susceptible to any economic, political, or regulatory developments or other risks affecting those industries and sectors.
