Emerging Market International Stocks



Investments in emerging or developing markets involve exposure to economic structures that are generally less diverse and mature, and to political systems which have less stability than those of more developed countries. These securities are particularly subject to a risk of loss from political instability.

Emerging market securities are subject to currency transfer restrictions and may experience delays and disruptions in securities settlement procedures for a Fund's portfolio securities.

The volatility of emerging markets can be significantly higher than other equity asset classes.
