Investor Profile
This fund may be a good choice if you are comfortable with a concentrated investment in real estate and want to tap the international markets. Due to the fundís focus on real estate, it has a high risk profile and may be appropriate for investors with a long-term horizon. It is appropriate for both regular and retirement accounts.
Risk/Reward Potential*

As you would expect, the risks of the fundís concentrated investment strategy are substantially greater than those of a more diversified approach. Changes in tax or zoning laws, overbuilding, environmental issues, changes in interest rates, the quality of property management in the case of REITs, and other factors could hurt the fund. Real estate is also affected by general economic conditions. When growth is slowing, demand for property decreases and prices may decline. Rising interest rates, which drive up mortgage and financing costs, can restrain construction and buying and selling activity, and may reduce the appeal of real estate investments. Also, since the fund can invest substantially in foreign securities, it will also be subject to the risks inherent in non-U.S. issues.
* 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.
