IMPORTANT RISK CONSIDERATIONS
Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.
Past performance does not guarantee future results.
Narrowly focused investments may exhibit higher volatility than investments in multiple industry sectors.
REIT investments are subject to many of the risks associated with direct real estate ownership, including changes in economic conditions, credit risk, and interest rate fluctuations.
Investments in small and/or medium-sized companies typically exhibit greater risk and higher volatility than larger, more established companies.
Alpha measures the portion of an investment’s total return that is independent of general market movements. In the case of mutual funds, alpha typically describes the portion of returns that is attributable to the investment’s inherent value, apart from the portion of returns that can be attributed to broader market fluctuations.
