Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments and income from then can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount invested. Performance results marked “Gross” do not reflect deduction of investment advisory fees but are net of transaction costs and withholding tax. Investment returns will be reduced accordingly. Performance returns marked “Net” reflect deduction of investment advisory fees and are calculated by deducting a quarterly indicative fee from the quarterly composite return. Please see important information below.
Periods over 12 months are annualized.
