Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
Gross performance returns are presented before management and all other fees, where applicable, but after trading expenses. Net of fees performance reflects the deduction of the highest applicable management fee that would be charged based on the fee schedule contained within this material, without the benefit of breakpoints. Gross and net performance returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends and are net of all non-reclaimable withholding taxes on dividends, interest income, and capital gains.
Effective June 27, 2013, the benchmark for the composite was changed to MSCI All Country World Index. Prior to June 27, 2013, the benchmark was the MSCI All Country World Large Cap Index.

Historical benchmark representations have not been restated.
