Risk/Reward Potential*
Click on the risk/reward spectrum below to view the funds in that category
This is a moderate-risk fund because of its mix of international and U.S. stocks and its focus on established companies. The fund is broadly diversified across international markets, which can help reduce volatility relative to funds that concentrate on a particular region or country. Since the fund invests overseas, its foreign holdings could be affected by declining foreign currencies or adverse political or economic events. In addition, the fundís growth approach carries risk: Because growth funds have higher valuations and lower dividend yields than slower-growth or cyclical companies, the share price volatility may be higher. As such, fund prices could decline further in market downturns than non-growth-oriented funds.
* 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.
