    This fund offers investors a convenient way to tap the significant long-term growth potential of companies primarily in Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, and Peru. Latin America's proven production capabilities, combined with a wealth of natural resources and affordable labor, offer an attractive environment for foreign investment.

    Investing in this fund involves a high degree of risk due to its concentration in the emerging economies of a specific region. Share prices are also subject to market risk, as well as risks associated with unfavorable currency exchange rates and political or economic uncertainty abroad. The fund is registered as "nondiversified," which means it may invest a greater portion of assets in a single company than a diversified fund, which could increase risk.
    *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.
