You may request a copy of the Fund's current Report to Shareholders by contacting Fund Information at 1-800/DIAL BEN® (1-800-342-5236). Since markets can go down as well as up, investment return and principal value will fluctuate with market conditions, currency volatility, and the economic, social and political climates of countries where the Fund invests. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors, in addition to those associated with their relatively small size and lesser liquidity. You may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares.
