Value

Change in Value of a $10,000 Initial Investment

A hypothetical $10,000 investment in the fund's Class A shares at inception on 6/2/1997 would have been worth $23,392 on 3/31/2014. This does not reflect the 4.50% maximum front-end sales load applicable to Class A shares which, if reflected, would have lowered performance. Assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Performance for the fund's other share classes would vary.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. Download a prospectus, or a summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about the fund, and read it carefully before investing.
