For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Morningstar ratings are based upon Investor class of shares, unless otherwise indicated. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating™ for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating™ metrics. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
The Morningstar Investment Style Box™ reveals a fund's investment strategy. For the equity holdings in the fund's portfolio, the vertical axis shows the market capitalization of the stocks owned and the horizontal axis shows investment style (value, blend or growth).

        Returns or yields for the fund would have been lower if .14% of the management fee had not been waived. The advisor expects this waiver to continue until February 28, 2021. Review the annual or semiannual report for the most current information.

        Investment return and principal value of security investments will fluctuate. The value at the time of redemption may be more or less than the original cost. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

        Alternative mutual funds generally hold a variety of non-traditional investments, and generally employ more complex trading strategies than traditional mutual funds. Specifically, the fund may invest in, among other securities, lower-rated debt securities; securities backed by other assets (like mortgages or auto loans); companies engaged in the real estate industry; and entities that must invest in energy infrastructure, financial services or real estate to obtain special tax status. The fund may invest in these strategies directly, through short positions (effectively borrowing and then selling a security with a future delivery date in hopes that it will decline in price in the interim), or through other derivatives, such as futures or options.

        Each of these alternative asset classes and investment strategies has unique risks typically making them more suitable for investors with an above average tolerance for risk or longer investment horizon. Specifically, among other risks, lower-rated debt securities may be subject to greater default and liquidity risk; asset-backed securities may be subject to prepayment, credit and default risk; real estate securities may be subject to changes in economic conditions and interest rates; and special tax entities may be subject to a change in tax status and the risks of concentrating in a particular region or industry.

        In addition, these investments may be executed through investment strategies with unique risks. One of the risks of investing through short positions includes that the stock price will go up, exposing the short seller to potentially unlimited price risk. One of the risks of investing in derivatives is volatility. Specifically, derivatives investing can be typically executed for less than investing directly in the underlying asset. Small movements in the underlying asset's price, however, can result in significant volatility in the related derivative investment. In addition, most derivative investments involve a counterparty, which subjects the investment to the credit risk of each counterparty to a derivatives transaction.

        Only Investor Class shares are made available to investors directly. Advisor, A, C, I, and Y Classes of shares are only available for purchase by institutions or other financial intermediaries. R, R5, and R6 Classes of shares are only available for purchase by group employer-sponsored retirement plans. Review definitions and minimums for all share classes.

        The gross expense ratio is the fund's total annual operating costs, expressed as a percentage of the fund's average net assets for a given time period. It is gross of any fee waivers or expense reimbursement. The net expense ratio is the expense ratio after the application of any waivers or reimbursement. This is the actual ratio that investors paid during the fund's most recent fiscal year. Please see the prospectus for more information.
