INVESTING RISK: Small Cap stocks may be less liquid and are more susceptible to market volatility because they may not have the management experience, financial resources, product diversification, or competitive strengths and tend to be sold less often and in smaller amounts relative to larger companies. Foreign securities involve greater currency valuation, economic, political, and regulatory environment risk relative to US securities. The Fund may invest in ETFs and therefore would be subject to the same risks as the underlying securities in which the ETF invests as well as entails higher expenses than if invested into the underlying ETF directly.
