1 Estimated savings for identified funds are the difference between past and current expense ratios multiplied by average assets under management (AUM).

2 ESG stands for environment, social and governance. Environmental criteria take into account a company’s performance as a steward of nature. The social criteria look at how it manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers and the communities where it operates. Governance deals with the direction of a company, executive compensation, audits, internal controls and shareholder rights.

Each Fund invests its assets in companies whose Inspire Impact Score® is equal to or greater than zero. Due to its strategy, the Fund’s exclusion of the securities of certain issuers for non-financial reasons may lead the Fund to forgo certain market opportunities offered to funds that do not use these criteria. The value of investments in large companies may not increase as much as small companies, or large companies may be unable to respond quickly to competitive challenges, such as changes in technology and consumer tastes. The sub-advisor’s judgments about the potential growth, value or appreciation of an investment may prove to be incorrect or not have the intended results, which could have a negative impact on the performance of the Fund and cause an underperformance. -performance relative to other funds with similar investment objectives. or relative to its benchmark, or fail to achieve its investment objective. Fluctuations in the value of equity securities held by the Fund will cause the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund and the price of its shares (“Shares”) to fluctuate.
