J.P. Morgan Funds objective box

J.P. Morgan Funds objective box is based on the Fund's overall targeted capitalization and valuation range(s) as described in the Fund's prospectus.

The Fund is subject to management risk and may not achieve its objective if the adviser's expectations regarding particular securities or markets are not met. The Fund is also subject to equity market risk. The price of equity securities may rise or fall because of changes in the broad market or changes in a company's financial condition, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably.

Investments in derivatives may be riskier than other types of investments. They may be more sensitive to changes in economic or market conditions than other types of investments. Many derivatives create leverage, which could lead to greater volatility and losses that significantly exceed the original investment.

The Fund may invest foreign securities which are subject to additional risks including political and economic risks, greater volatility, currency fluctuations, higher transaction costs, delayed settlement, possible foreign controls on investment, and less stringent investor protection and disclosure standards of foreign markets.

1Please refer to the prospectus for additional information about cut-off times.

Total return assumes reinvestment of income.

The Russell 1000 Growth Index is an unmanaged index which measures the performance of those Russell 1000 companies with higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth values. 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 fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. Investors can not invest directly in an index.

The performance of the Lipper Large-Cap Growth 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 and/or reimbursement of certain expenses for certain periods since the inception date. If fees had not been waived and/or certain expenses were not reimbursed, performance would have been less favorable.
