The Better World International Fund/Strategy's adherence to its ESG ratings process may affect the Fund/Strategy's exposure to certain companies, sectors, regions, and countries and may affect the Fund/Strategy's performance depending on whether such investments are in or out of favor. This process may result in the Fund/Strategy foregoing opportunities to buy certain securities when it might otherwise be advantageous to do so, or selling securities for ESG reasons when it might be otherwise disadvantageous for it to do so. Additionally, the process may result in incorrectly evaluating a company's commitment to positive ESG practices and may result in investment in companies with practices that are not consistent with the Fund/Strategy's aspirations.

Before investing, carefully consider the Fund's investment goals, risks, charges, and expenses. For a prospectus or summary prospectus containing this and other information, contact your financial advisor or visit Read them carefully before investing.
