RISKS

Investing in the Fund involves risks, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or that you may lose part or even all of your investment.  Foreign Securities, which are subject to additional risks including political and economic risks.  Investments in Class A-Shares and Class B-Shares of Chinese companies involve certain risks and special considerations not typically associated with investments in U.S. companies, such as greater government control over the economy, political and legal uncertainty, currency fluctuations or blockage.  Emerging Markets Risk.  Emerging markets securities are subject to greater risks than securities issued in developed foreign markets, including less liquidity, greater price volatility, higher relative rates of inflation, greater political, economic, and social instability, greater custody and operational risks, and greater volatility in currency exchange rates.  Counterparty Risk. The Fund is subject to credit risk with respect to the counterparties to the derivative contracts purchased by the Fund.  Derivatives Risk. Derivatives are subject to a number of risks, such as liquidity risk, potential losses that partially or completely offset gains, counterparty risk, interest rate risk, credit risk, leverage risk, regulatory risk and management risk.  Non-Diversification Risk. The Fund is a “non-diversified” investment company and therefore may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of fewer issuers than funds that are “diversified.”
