Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate; an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. The Adviser has reimbursed certain Fund expenses and the Fund's transfer agency expenses may be reduced by expense offsets from an unaffiliated transfer agent, without which performance would have been lower. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted above. For performance information current to the most recent month end, click on Total Returns By Month tab above.

*As of fiscal year ended 12/31/2013 the gross expense ratio of the Fund’s Retail Shares was 1.74%, but the estimated net expense ratio was 1.50% (net of the Adviser's fee waivers).
