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.
* Funds are placed in general risk/return categories based on their 10-year standard deviation (as of December 2015) or, for newer funds, the standard deviation of the types of securities in which they invest. There is no assurance past trends will continue.
