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 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.

Beta: The systematic risk of a Fund. The beta of a Fund is its sensitivity to a benchmark. A Fund with a beta of 1.0 is as risky as the benchmark and would therefore provide expected returns equal to those of the market during both up and down periods.

Sharpe ratio: A risk-adjusted measure that determines the reward per unit of risk. The numerator is the difference between the Fund's annualized return and the annualized return of the risk-free instrument (Citigroup 3-Month Treasury Bill Index) and the denominator is the Fund's standard deviation. The Sharpe ratio is calculated over a 36-month period based on the Fund's returns. The greater the Fund's Sharpe ratio, the better its risk-adjusted performance has been. A negative Sharpe ratio indicates that a risk-free instrument would perform better than the Fund. The Sharpe ratio shown is based on the Fund's Class A Shares or the oldest share class, where Class A Shares are not available.

Standard deviation: A statistical measure of the degree to which the Fund's returns have varied from its historical average. The higher the standard deviation, the wider the range of returns from its average and the greater the historical volatility. The standard deviation is calculated over a 36-month period based on Fund's monthly returns. The standard deviation shown is based on the Fund's Class A Shares or the oldest share class, where Class A Shares are not available.

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

Risk measures are calculated based upon the Funds' broad-based index as stated in the prospectus.
