Fund Disclosure

Investments in India can be considered speculative, and therefore may offer higher potential for losses. Political and economic structures in India generally lack the social, political and economic stability of more developed nations. Share prices of Indian companies tend to be volatile, can be subject to currency exchange fluctuations and can lack liquidity. The stock markets in India are undergoing a period of growth and change, which may result in trading or price volatility and difficulties in the settlement and recording of transactions, and in interpreting and applying the relevant laws and regulations. The risk of loss may be increased because Indian issuers are not subject to the extensive accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards and practices which are applicable in the United States. There is also a lower level of regulation and monitoring of the Indian securities market and its participants than in other more developed markets. Because the Fund concentrates in a single region of the world, the Fund’s performance may be more volatile than that of a fund that invests globally. If Indian securities fall out of favor, it may cause the Fund to underperform funds that do not concentrate in a single region of the world. 

The Fund’s consideration of ESG factors as part of its investment strategy may limit the types and number of investment opportunities available to the Fund and, as a result, the Fund may underperform other funds that do not consider ESG factors. In evaluating a security based on ESG criteria, the Sub-Adviser is dependent upon information and data from third party ESG providers. ESG scorings and assessments of issuers can vary across third-party data providers and may change over time.

There is no assurance that employing ESG strategies will result in more favorable investment performance; ESG considerations may affect a Fund's exposure to certain companies or industries and a Fund may forego certain investment opportunities.
