Welcome Guide

Our Investor reference guide (PDF) is included with your first new account confirmation.



An account confirmation is mailed when the initial investment is made into an account or when there is financial or maintenance activity in an existing account.*

Note: Some automated transactions, such as automatic investment or withdrawal plans, do not generate a confirmation, but are reflected on the quarterly statement.

*Paperless delivery is available for financial activity only.

Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing.
