2As of 12/31/2023. This calculation is based on a hypothetical $500,000 investment in Investor Classes with an average expense ratio of 0.66% (for an annual cost of $3,300) versus I Classes with an average expense ratio of 0.50% (for an annual of cost of $2,500). These expense ratios are net of fee waivers. Fund expenses change over time; please refer to our mutual fund prospectuses for complete information about expenses, fees, and other information to consider before investing.

3Morningstar gives its best ratings of 5 or 4 stars to the top 32.5% of all funds (of the 32.5%, 10% get 5 stars and 22.5% get 4 stars) based on their risk-adjusted returns. The Overall Morningstar Rating™ is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with a fund’s 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating™ metrics. As of 2/29/2024, 2 of 2 of our closed funds (Investor Class only) rated by Morningstar received an overall rating of 5 or 4 stars. Past performance cannot guarantee future results.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating," is calculated for funds with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star.

4Consider all available options, which include remaining with your current retirement plan, rolling over into a new employer's plan or IRA, or cashing out the account value. When deciding between an employer-sponsored plan and IRA, there may be important differences to consider, such as range of investment options, fees and expenses, availability of services, and distribution rules (including differences in applicable taxes and penalties). Depending on your plan's investment options, in some cases, the investment management fees associated with your plan's investment options may be lower than similar investment options offered outside the plan.
