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.
