Disclosure

1 Equity securities (stocks) are more volatile and carry more risk than other forms of investments, including investments in high-grade fixed income securities. 

2 Formerly named Small Cap Fund. There are special risks associated with small capitalization issues, such as market illiquidity and greater market volatility than large capitalization issues.

3 Foreign investments involve greater risks than U.S. investments, including political and economic risks and the risk of currency fluctuations. 

4 Bond funds will tend to experience smaller fluctuations in value than stock funds. Investors in any bond fund, however, should anticipate fluctuations in price, especially for the longer-term issues and in environments of rising interest rates.

5 Because each fund in the Genesis Portfolios is a “fund of funds,” the cost of investing in a fund may be higher than the cost of investing directly in the shares of the underlying funds in which they invest. Each fund will bear its share of fees and expenses of the underlying funds, in addition to indirectly bearing the principal risks of those funds.

The Fund’s stewardship investing strategy could cause the fund to sell or avoid securities that may subsequently perform well, and the application of social screens may cause the fund to lag the performance of its index.
