IMPORTANT RISK CONSIDERATIONS: Equity Securities: The market price of equity securities may be adversely affected by financial market, industry, or issuer-specific events. Focus on a particular style or on small or medium-sized companies may enhance that risk. Value Stocks: Value stocks are subject to the risk that the broad market may not recognize their intrinsic value. Geographic Concentration: A portfolio that focuses its investments in a particular geographic location will be sensitive to financial, economic, political, and other events negatively affecting that location. Market Volatility: Local, regional, or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, recessions, or other events could have a significant impact on the portfolio and its investments, including hampering the ability of the portfolio manager(s) to invest the portfolio’s assets as intended.

All investments carry a certain degree of risk, including possible loss of principal.
