MSCI World Ex US Small Cap Index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets. It offers an exhaustive representation of the Small Cap segment by targeting companies that are in the Investable Market Index but not in the Standard Index in a particular market.
Small-cap and mid-cap investment options are subject to more fluctuation in value and may have additional risks than other investment options with stocks of larger, more stable companies.
These calculated returns reflect the historical performance of the oldest share class of the fund, adjusted to reflect a portion of the fees and expenses of this share class. For time periods prior to inception date of the fund, predecessor performance is reflected. Please see the fund's prospectus for more information on specific expenses, and the fund's most recent shareholder report for actual date of first sale. Expenses are deducted from income earned by the fund. As a result, dividends and investment results will differ for each share class.
International and global investment options are subject to additional risk due to fluctuating exchange rates, foreign accounting and financial policies, and other economic and political environments.
