High revenue exposure to the U.S. has benefited company returns, both in and outside the United States. Since 2011, non-U.S. companies with the highest exposure to the strong U.S. economy have had significantly higher equity returns than domestic-oriented companies and the broad MSCI ACWI benchmark. There are signs that Europe may be set to rebound, but maintaining a well-diversified portfolio that includes non-U.S. companies with exposure to the U.S. can be a prudent way to mitigate global political risk.

Investing outside the United States involves risks, such as currency fluctuations, periods of illiquidity and price volatility, as more fully described in the prospectus. These risks may be heightened in connection with investments in developing countries.
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.
