Returns quoted are past performance and do not guarantee future results; current performance may be lower or higher. Investment returns and principal value will vary; there may be a gain or loss when shares are sold.
CDSC returns include a 1% contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) on Shares redeemed within 12 months of purchase. Net Asset Value (NAV) returns exclude this charge, which would have reduced returns.
