^ The gross expense ratio reflects the fund expenses as stated in the fee table of the fund's prospectus prior to the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. The net expense ratio reflects fund expenses after the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. If a fund has an active contractual expense ratio limitation, the expiration date is shown below the gross and net expense ratio values above. Expense ratios are as of the most recent prospectus.
