Important Risk Information

Small company issues can be subject to increased volatility and considerable price fluctuations.

Investments in small-sized companies may involve greater risks than in those of larger, better known companies. Returns on investments in stocks of small companies could trail the returns on investments in stocks of larger companies.

These investments may have difficulty in liquidating an investment position without taking a significant discount from current market value, which can be a significant problem with certain lightly traded securities.

Risk associated with equity investing include stock values which may fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions.

Derivative investments may involve risks such as potential illiquidity of the markets and additional risk of loss of principal.
