International investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume.

The companies in which the Fund invests may be subject to rapid changes in technology, intense competition, rapid obsolescence of products and services, loss of intellectual property protections, evolving industry standards and frequent new product productions and changes in business cycles and government regulations.

The business models for some Advertising or Marketing Technology companies may change or these companies may become defunct rapidly. Domestic and international demand for advertising and marketing technology can change rapidly and without notice. These risks could adversely affect the value of companies in which the Fund invests.
