Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Small- and medium-capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large-capitalization companies.   Investment in IPOs can be volatile and can fluctuate considerably.  IPOs can have a magnified impact on funds with a small asset base.  Investments in foreign securities and emerging markets countries involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods.  These risks are greater for emerging markets. Investment in REIT securities involve risks such as declines in the value of real estate and increased susceptibility to adverse economic regulatory expenses.   The International Discovery Fund will invest in derivatives which may be more volatile than investments directly in the underlying securities, involve additional costs and may involve a small initial investment relative to the risk assumed.
Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise.  This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities.   Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities.  Investments in asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of such as credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments.  Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. 
The Price to Earnings (P/E) Ratio reflects the multiple of earnings at which a stock sells.  Alpha is the difference between the fair and actually expected rates of return on a stock.
Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.
