Risk/Reward Potential*
Click on the risk/reward spectrum below to view the funds in that category
This fund aggressively pursues long-term capital growth by investing in foreign and U.S. companies that are expected to benefit from rapid advances in technology. Seeking to capitalize on breakthroughs in a broad range of tech-related industries, the fund has the potential to provide superior capital appreciation.

The fund is less diversified than a non-focused fund and its substantial reward potential is coupled with significant risk. In addition, any foreign holdings could be affected by declining local currencies or adverse political or economic events.
* 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.
