The Fund’s composition and sector weightings
are shown as a percentage of the Fund’s total net assets. Portfolio
composition and sector weightings are subject to change at any time
and should not be considered a recommendation to buy or sell a particular
security. The Russell/Nomura Small Cap Index represents the universe of
small capitalization companies in the Japanese equity markets. The
Tokyo Stock Price Index (TOPIX) is a market capitalization-weighted
index of all companies listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock
Exchange. The Russell/Nomura Small Cap and TOPIX indices are presented
in U.S. Dollar terms and take into account reinvestment of dividends.
One cannot invest directly in an index.
Small and medium-capitalization companies tend to have limited
liquidity and greater price volatility than large-capitalization companies.
Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political,
economic and currency risk and differences in accounting methods.
* Beta is a measure of a portfolio’s sensitivity to market movements
(as represented by the TOPIX). The index has a beta of 1.0. A beta
of more (less) than 1.0 indicates that a fund’s historical returns
have fluctuated more (less) than the index.
