Investment results assume all distributions are reinvested and reflect applicable fees and expenses. The investment adviser is currently reimbursing a portion of other expenses. Investment results reflect the reimbursement, without which the results would have been lower. The reimbursement will be in effect through at least April 7, 2018. The adviser may elect at its discretion to extend, modify or terminate the reimbursement at that time. Read details about how waivers and/or reimbursements affect the results for each fund.
