This fund offers attractive long-term capital growth potential and, secondarily, income, by investing in established European companies, allowing investors to take advantage of the world’s stock market value traded in Europe. Over long periods, international investing offers diversification benefits relative to an all-U.S. portfolio.

The fund involves higher risk than a more geographically diverse international fund because of its focus on a specific region. Share prices are subject to market risk as well as risks associated with unfavorable currency exchange rates and political or economic uncertainty abroad.
* Annually we evaluate the standard deviation of each US mutual fund listed and its resulting placement within specific risk/return categories.

Methodology: If a fund is at least 5 year old, it is generally placed in risk/return categories based on the standard deviation of its performance for the longest period of its calendar year returns; the longest time period used for analysis is 10 years (regardless of the fund's inception). If a fund is less than 5 years old, we generally use the fund's primary benchmark disclosed in its prospectus as a proxy and follow the same process of using 10-year standard deviation of the benchmark, or longest time period available. The firm at its sole discretion may show a fund in a higher risk category based on qualitative or other factors that may differ from this methodology.
