Past performance cannot guarantee future results.
Investing overseas holds special risks—political uncertainty, unfavorable currency exchange rates, and to a lesser degree, market illiquidity—which will cause the value of this fund to fluctuate more than that of a similar domestic fund.
*Morningstar rated the Overseas Stock Fund 4-, 3-, 4-, and 4-stars among 642, 642, 523 and 387 Foreign Large Blend funds for the overall rating and the 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods (as applicable) ending 10/31/18, respectively.
The Morningstar RatingTM 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.
