After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates, and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. Returns after taxes on distributions are adjusted for federal income taxes associated with fund distributions, but do not reflect the federal income tax impact of gains or losses recognized when fund shares are sold. Returns after taxes on distributions and sale of fund shares are adjusted for federal income taxes associated with fund distributions and reflect the federal income tax impact of gains or losses recognized when fund shares are sold. Actual after-tax returns depend on an investor's tax situation and may differ from those shown, and the after-tax returns shown are not relevant to investors who hold their fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.
Investors cannot invest directly in an index, unlike an index fund. Index returns are not adjusted to reflect the deduction of taxes that an investor would pay on distributions or the sale of securities comprising the index.
The performance shown, before and after taxes, represents past performance and is not a guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance data quoted.
The Fund does not impose any front-end or deferred sales charges. However, a 2% redemption fee is imposed on redemption proceeds for redemptions or exchanges made less than 15 days after purchase. Performance data does not reflect the deduction of the redemption fee, and if reflected, the redemption fee would reduce any performance data quoted for periods of 14 days or less. The expense ratios shown above reflect the inclusion of acquired fund fees and expenses (i.e., the fees and expenses attributable to investing cash balances in money market funds) and may differ from those shown in the Fund's financial statements.
1 Inception date for the Fund was June 15, 1993. Prior to 2004, information with respect to the MSCI EAFE Index was available at month end only; therefore, the closest month end to the inception date of the Fund, May 31, 1993, was used.
2 The MSCI EAFE Index is an unmanaged, capitalization-weighted index of companies representing the stock markets of Europe, Australasia and the Far East. The MSCI EAFE Index (Hedged to US$) consists of the results of the MSCI EAFE Index 100% hedged back into U.S. dollars and accounts for interest differentials in forward currency exchange rates. The MSCI EAFE Index (US$) reflects the return of the MSCI EAFE Index for a U.S. dollar investor. Index results are inclusive of dividends and net of foreign withholding taxes. Index figures do not reflect any deduction for fees, expenses or taxes.
3 Morningstar Foreign Stock Fund Average: Average returns of all mutual funds in the Morningstar universe that have 90% or more of their assets invested in non-U.S. stocks. These funds may or may not be hedged to the U.S. dollar, which will affect reported returns.
