PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT RISKS OF THE FUNDS
It is possible to lose money by investing in a Fund. There is no guarantee that the stock market or that the stocks that a Fund buys will increase in value. The Funds are subject to the following principal investment risks:
Market Risk. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, regulatory, market or economic developments. Different parts of the market can react differently to these developments.
Company Risk. The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than the market as a whole and can perform differently from the value of the market as a whole. This may result from a wide variety of factors that affect particular companies or industries, including changes in market demand for particular goods and services, increases in costs of supply, changes in management, increased competition, and changes in regulatory environment.
Value Investing Risk. Value stocks can perform differently from the market as a whole and other types of stocks and can continue to be undervalued by the market for long periods of time. The investment adviser may be incorrect when it decides that some stocks are undervalued by the market.
Risks of Small and Mid Cap Companies. Compared to mutual funds that focus on large capitalization companies, shares of the Small Cap Value Fund, the Small/Mid Cap Value Fund and the Mid Cap Value Fund may be more volatile because of their focus on smaller and mid capitalization companies. These companies are more likely to have more limited product lines, fewer capital resources and less depth of management than larger companies.
Risks of Foreign Investments. Each Fund may invest in foreign securities. Investing in foreign securities involves special risks that can increase the potential for losses. These risks may include expropriation of assets, illiquid foreign securities markets, confiscatory taxation, foreign withholding taxes, currency exchange controls and political or social instability. The Funds could also lose money if the currency in which a foreign security is priced declines in value relative to the U.S. dollar. In some foreign countries, less information is available about issuers and markets because of less rigorous accounting and regulatory standards than in the U.S. Foreign markets may offer less protection to investors. Enforcing legal rights in some foreign countries may be difficult, costly and slow.
Additional Risks. The Funds are also subject to other risks, some of which are described under “Additional Risk Information” of the Funds’ prospectus.
For more information regarding investment risks, please refer to the Funds’ prospectus.
