This chart illustrates how hypothetical investment of $10,000 might have grown. The calculations assume reinvestment of dividend and do not reflect transaction and other costs.
Results are not indicative of future performance. Index performance does not represent actual fund or portfolio performance. A fund or portfolio may differ significantly from the securities included in the Index. Index performance assumes reinvestment of dividends, but does not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or other expenses that would be incurred by a portfolio or fund, or brokerage commissions on transactions in Fund shares. Such fees, expenses and commissions could reduce returns.
