Distinguishing Characteristics

Holdings Outside the U.S.
The fund will invest at least 35% of assets in securities of issuers based primarily in qualified developing countries.
Portfolio Restrictions
The fund may invest in debt securities, which may be rated below investment grade (BB/Ba and below, or unrated, but determined by the fund’s investment adviser to be of equivalent quality).
