A Word About Risk: The principal value of the Funds is not guaranteed at any time, including at the target date. The Fund is exposed to the same types of risks as the underlying funds in which it invests. Investments in smaller companies may be more volatile andless liquid than investments in larger companies. Investments in commodities may be affected by overall market movements, changes in interest rates, and other factorssuch as weather, disease, embargoes and international economic and political developments. Convertible and fixed income securities, particularly high-yield or junk bonds,are subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk, may be speculative and may decline in value due to changes in interest rates or an issuer’s or counterparty’sdeterioration or default. Derivative prices depend on the performance of an underlying asset; derivatives carry market, credit and liquidity risk. Investing in a small number ofissuers may increase risk and volatility. Securities purchased in initial public offerings have no trading history, limited issuer information and increased volatility. Leverage canmagnify losses during adverse market conditions. Investing in mortgage- and asset-backed securities involves interest rate, credit, valuation, extension and liquidity risks andthe risk that payments on the underlying assets are delayed, prepaid, subordinated or defaulted on. Foreign markets may be more volatile, less liquid, less transparent andsubject to less oversight, and values may fluctuate with currency exchange rates; these risks may be greater in emerging markets. The cost of investing in the Fund willgenerally be higher than the cost of investing in a fund that invests directly in individual stocks and bonds. The target date included in the Fund’s name does not necessarilyrepresent the specific year an investor will begin withdrawing assets. It is intended only as a general guide.
