Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

There is no assurance that the investment process will consistently lead to successful investing.

Diversification neither assures a profit nor eliminates the risk of experiencing investment losses.

Foreign securities have additional risks including exchange rate changes, political and economic upheaval, the relative lack of information, relatively low market liquidity and the potential lack of strict financial and accounting controls and standards. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. The prices of foreign securities held by the fund, and therefore a fund's performance, may decline in response to such risks.

This Fund is designed for long-term investors who can accept the special risks associated with value investing.

The Fund may hold a meaningful portion of assets in cash or cash equivalents. 

Up/ down capture shows what percentage of the market's performance (as evidenced by an appropriate market index) the manager "captured."  Up market capture is the extent to which the strategy gained value relative to the index over months when the index achieved gains.  Down market capture is the extent to which the strategy lost value over months when the index declined.  A measure of 100% means the strategy results went up (or down) exactly the same amount as the broader market index. 

The opinions are those of the speakers as of 08-02-2012 and are subject to change at any time due to changes in market or economic conditions. The comments should not be construed as a recommendation of individual holdings or market sectors, but as an illustration of broader themes.
