Product Characteristics

As of

The Fund’s Investment Manager (the “Manager”) caps certain expenses. Absent such arrangements, the total returns would be lower. Net expense ratio represents the total annual operating expenses that shareholders pay (after the effect of fee waivers and/or expense reimbursement). The Fund’s investment manager contractually caps certain direct expenses of the Fund (excluding interest, taxes, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividend expenses relating to short sales, and extraordinary expenses, if any; consequently, total (net) expenses may exceed the contractual cap) through 10/31/2023 for Class A at 1.11%, Class C at 1.86%, Class R6 at 0.65% and Institutional Class at 0.75% (each as a % of average net assets). Absent such arrangements, which cannot be changed without Board approval, the returns may have been lower. Information as of the most recent prospectus dated February 28, 2020, as amended.

The Fund’s Institutional Class was used to calculate beta, a measure of the magnitude of a fund’s past share price fluctuations in relation to the fluctuations in the stock market (as represented by the fund’s benchmark). While not predictive of the future, funds with a beta greater than 1 have in the past been more volatile than the benchmark, and those with a beta less than 1 have in the past been less volatile than the benchmark. The Fund’s institutional class was used to calculate standard deviation, a statistical measure of portfolio risk. The standard deviation describes the average deviation of the portfolio returns from the mean portfolio return over a certain period of time. Standard Deviation measures how wide this range of returns typically is. The wider the typical range of returns, the higher the standard deviation of returns, and the higher the portfolio risk.
