This fund pursues substantial long-term growth by investing in well-managed growth companies in China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. Because these economies, and those of other countries in the region, are generally in an earlier stage of development than more developed economies, they could provide greater long-term growth potential than developed markets.

The fundís relatively limited geographic orientation and exposure to emerging markets increase its risk level. The fund price is subject to market risk in addition to risks associated with unfavorable currency exchange rates and political or economic uncertainty abroad.
*Funds are placed in general risk/return categories based on their past performance or, for newer funds, the performance of the types of securities in which they invest. There is no assurance past trends will continue.
