Investments carry risks, including possible loss of principal. Additional risks may be associated with investments outside the United States, especially in emerging markets, including currency fluctuations, illiquidity, volatility, and political and economic risks. Investments in small- and mid-capitalization companies may increase the risk of greater price fluctuations. Investments in the Fund are not FDIC insured, nor are they bank deposits or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity.
The Better World International Fund/Strategy's adherence to its ESG ratings process may affect the Fund/Strategy's exposure to certain companies, sectors, regions, and countries and may affect the Fund/Strategy's performance depending on whether such investments are in or out of favor. This process may result in the Fund/Strategy foregoing opportunities to buy certain securities when it might otherwise be advantageous to do so, or selling securities for ESG reasons when it might be otherwise disadvantageous for it to do so. Additionally, the process may result in incorrectly evaluating a company’s commitment to positive ESG practices and may result in investment in companies with practices that are not consistent with the Fund/Strategy’s aspirations.
The performance of any index is not indicative of the performance of any particular investment. Unless otherwise noted, index returns reflect the reinvestment of income dividends and capital gains, if any, but do not reflect fees, brokerage commissions or other expenses of investing. Investors may not make direct investments into any index.
Class I shares may not be available to all investors. Minimum investments for the I share class may be higher than those for other classes.
There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its investment objectives.
To determine a fund's Morningstar Rating™, funds and other managed products with at least a three-year history are ranked in their categories by their Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return scores. The top 10% receive 5 stars; the next 22.5%, 4 stars; the middle 35%, 3 stars; the next 22.5%, 2 stars; and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Risk-Adjusted Return accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance (excluding sales charges), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Other share classes may have different performance characteristics.
