Product Characteristics

As of

For Institutional Class, Class A, Class C, Class R6, and Class R3 total (net) expense represents, and for Trust Class gross expense represents, the total annual operating expenses that shareholders pay (after the effect of fee waivers and/or expense reimbursement). The Manager contractually caps certain expenses of the Fund (excluding interest, taxes, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividend and interest expenses relating to short sales, and extraordinary expenses, if any; consequently, total (net) expenses may exceed the contractual cap) through 8/31/2023 for Class A at 1.21%, Class C at 1.96%, Class R3 at 1.46%, Class R6 at 0.75%, Institutional Class at 0.85% and Trust Class at 1.50% (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 prospectuses dated December 13, 2019, as amended.

Figures are derived from FactSet as of 12/31/19 The Fund’s Trust 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. Standard Deviation is 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. Funds From Operations (FFO) is a supplemental measure of a REIT’s operating performance. FFO is a REIT’s net income (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles) excluding gains or losses from sales of property or debt restructuring, and adding back depreciation of real estate. Active Share measures the percentage of mutual fund assets that are invested differently from the benchmark, and will range between 0% and 100%, Funds with an active share below 20% are likely to be pure index funds, while those with an active share between 20% and 60% are considered to be closet index funds.

A fund’s 30-day SEC Yield is similar to a yield to maturity for the entire portfolio. The formula is designated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This standardized mandatory calculation is more frequently associated with bond funds. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Absent any expense cap arrangement noted above, the SEC Yields may have been lower. A negative 30-Day SEC yield results when a Fund’s accrued expenses exceed its income for the relevant period. Please note, in such instances the 30-Day SEC yield may not equal the Fund’s actual rate of income earned and distributed by the fund and therefore, a per share distribution may still be paid to shareholders. The unsubsidized 30-day SEC yields for Class A, Class C, Class R6, Class R3, Institutional Class and Trust Class are 1.49%, 0.76%, 1.94%, 1.25%, 1.85% and 1.50% respectively.
