International investments involve special risks, including currency fluctuation, lower liquidity, different accounting methods and economic and political systems, and higher transaction costs. These risks typically are greater in emerging markets. Securities of medium-sized companies tend to be more volatile and less liquid than those of large companies, may have underperformed the securities of large companies during some periods and tend to have a shorter history of operations than large companies. Value securities may underperform other asset types during a given period.
A mutual fund’s NAV is the value of a single share and is computed daily using closing prices as of the NYSE closing time – usually 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, but sometimes earlier. Securities for which prices are not readily available (such as when there are significant changes in one or more U.S. market indices) are valued at a fair value under the Funds’ Valuation Procedures as described in the Funds’ prospectus. When fair value pricing is employed, the value of a portfolio security used by the Fund to calculate its NAV may differ from (and consequently be higher or lower than) quoted or published prices for the same security. Fair value pricing is not employed by market indices.
Quotations of mutual fund performance are calculated using NAV and may be impacted by fair value pricing.
