An investment in securities of foreign issuers should be made with an understanding of the additional risks involved, such as currency fluctuations, political risk, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.
Volatility Risk. The value of the securities held by the trust may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in performance or perception of the issuers.

All data used for the sector and style classification comparisons is from
Bloomberg Finance L.P, which we believe to be reliable, but do not take responsibility
for its accuracy.
The style and capitalization characteristics used to describe the stocks are designed to help you
understand how they fit into your overall investment plan. Due to changes in the value of the stocks
the characteristics may vary over time. In general, growth stocks have high relative price-to-book
ratios while value stocks have low relative price-to-book ratios. In determining market capitalization
characteristics, we analyze the market capitalizations of the 3,000 largest stocks in the U.S. (excluding
foreign securities, ADRs, limited partnerships and regulated investment companies) on a monthly basis.
Companies with market capitalizations among the largest 10% are considered Large-Cap securities, the next
20% are considered Mid-Cap securities and the remaining securities are considered Small-Cap securities.
