What are the minimum investment requirements?

For retirement accounts, the minimum is generally $1,000.00. For non-retirement accounts, it’s generally $2,000.00. The initial investment minimum is reduced when establishing a monthly Systematic Investment Plan for a minimum of $100 for non-retirement accounts or $50 for retirement accounts. This option requires a $100 initial investment and authorizes electronic drafts from your bank checking or savings account. Certain funds may have a different investment minimum. Please review the Fund Overview or Prospectus for more specific information. Effective 8/1/2011, all subsequent purchase minimums will be eliminated for all share classes.

What is a fund merger?

A fund merger occurs when the assets of two mutual funds within the same family combine or merge. For example, if Fund A merges (or combines) with Fund B, the result of the merger is that Fund B includes more assets and Fund A is eliminated. Fund mergers are usually not taxable events to the shareholder.
