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

    The quoted performance of the Fund includes performance of a predecessor fund/share class prior to the Fund's commencement of operations. Please refer to the current prospectus for further information.
    The MSCI World Index (net of foreign withholding taxes) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets. 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 the fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. Total return figures assume the reinvestment of dividends. The dividend is reinvested after deduction of withholding tax, applying the maximum rate to nonresident individual investors who do not benefit from double taxation treaties. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.
    The Euromoney Global Gold, Mining & Energy Index measures the returns of companies in the energy industry plus metal and mineral extraction industries. The index has equal weightings across gold, mining and energy at each rebalance and covers both emerging and developed markets. 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 the fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.
    The performance of the Lipper Global Natural Resources 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.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damage or losses arising from any use of this information. For each fund with a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ metric each month by subtracting the return on a 90-day U.S. Treasury Bill from the fund's load-adjusted return for the same period, and then adjusting this excess return for risk. The top 10% of funds in each broad asset class receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Different share classes may have different ratings.
    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.
    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.
    Total return assumes reinvestment of income.
    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 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.
    Tracking Error: The active risk of the portfolio, which determines the annualized standard deviation of the excess returns between the portfolio and the benchmark.
    Alpha: The relationship between the performance of the Fund and its beta over a three-year period of time.
    Standard deviation/Volatility: 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.
    R2: The percentage of a Fund's movements that result from movements in the index ranging from 0 to 100. A Fund with an R2 of 100 means that 100 percent of the Fund's movement can completely be explained by movements in the Fund's external index benchmark.
    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.
