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. Because the Fund is concentrated in a single country or region, it is subject to the additional risk associated with a smaller number of issuers.

The Fund may invest in participation notes ("P-notes"), which are structured, synthetic instruments that attempt to replicate the performance of a particular equity, debt, currency or market ("reference assets"). There can be no assurance that there will be a trading market for a P-note or that the trading price of a P-note will equal the underlying value of the security, instrument or market that it seeks to replicate.

The Fund may invest in privately placed securities, which are generally less liquid than publicly traded securities. Furthermore, the Fund may not always be able to sell such securities without experiencing delays in finding buyers or reducing the sale price for such securities. The disposition of some of the securities held by the Fund may be restricted under federal securities laws. These securities may also be difficult to value.

Total return assumes reinvestment of income.

The top 10 holdings listed reflect only the Fund's long-term investments. Short-term investments are excluded. Holdings are subject to change. The holdings listed should not be considered recommendations to purchase or sell a particular security. Each individual security is calculated as a percentage of the aggregate market value of the securities held in the Fund and does not include the use of derivative positions, where applicable.

P/E ratio: the number by which earnings per share is multiplied to estimate a stock's value.

P/B ratio: the relationship between a stock's price and the book value of that stock.

EPS: Total earnings divided by the number of shares outstanding.
