Developments affecting commodities will have a disproportionate impact on the Fund. The natural resources and energy sectors can be significantly affected by changes in the prices and supplies of oil, gas and other energy fuels, exploration and production spending and the success of energy spending, energy conservation, and tax and other government regulations, policies of the Organizations of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and oil importing nations. Therefore, the securities of companies in the energy and natural resources sectors may experience more price volatility than companies in other industries. Use of leveraged commodity-linked derivatives creates an opportunity for increased return but, at the same time, creates the possibility for greater loss (including the likelihood of greater volatility of the Fund's net asset value), and there can be no assurance that the Fund's use of leverage will be successful.

International investing involves a greater degree of risk and increased volatility. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accounting and taxation policies outside the U.S. can raise or lower returns. Also, some overseas markets may not be as politically and economically stable as the United States and other nations. The risks associated with foreign securities are magnified in countries in "emerging markets." These countries may have relatively unstable governments and less-established market economies than developed countries. Emerging markets may face greater social, economic, regulatory and political uncertainties. These risks make emerging market securities more volatile and less liquid than securities issued in more developed countries.

Asset allocation/diversification does not guarantee investment returns and does not eliminate the risk of loss.

The MSCI World Index (net of foreign withholding taxes) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets. The performance of the index does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of the fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. Total return figures assume the reinvestment of dividends. The dividend is reinvested after deduction of withholding tax, applying the maximum rate to nonresident individual investors who do not benefit from double taxation treaties. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

The Euromoney Mining Gold and Energy Index measures the returns of companies in the energy industry plus metal and mineral extraction industries. The index has equal weightings across gold, mining and energy at each rebalance and covers both emerging and developed markets. The performance of the index does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of the fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

The performance of the Lipper Global Natural Resources Funds Index includes expenses associated with a mutual fund, such as investment management fees. These expenses are not identical to the expenses charged by the Fund.

Total return assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions and reflects the deduction of any sales charges, where applicable. Performance may reflect the waiver of a portion of the Fund's advisory or administrative fees for certain periods since the inception date. If fees had not been waived, performance would have been less favorable.
