All fund performance data are on a NAV to NAV basis, net income reinvested. Data is not available for the time periods with no % growth stated. In case a share class is created after the fund's launch date, a simulated past performance is used, based upon the performance of an existing share class within the fund, taking into account the difference in the Total Expense Ratio. Some performance differences between the fund and the benchmark may arise because the fund performance is calculated at a different valuation point from the benchmark.
