Minimum Investments

For Class C shares, the initial minimum investment amount for regular accounts is $5,000, and for taxdeferred and certain tax efficient accounts (such as Roth IRAs) is $2,000. The minimum subsequent investment is $100. An account fee of $15 annually will be charged for all non-retirement accounts with a balance below $2,500. The account fee will not be charged if the balance falls below $2,500 due solely to depreciation of the investment. The fee is waived if your total investment amount in all Funds combined is $50,000 or more. There is no minimum initial investment for employee benefit plans, mutual fund platform platforms, supermarket programs, associations, and individual retirement accounts. The minimum subsequent investment in the Trust is $100 and there is no minimum subsequent investment for any Fund. The Trust reserves the right at any time to vary the initial and subsequent investment minimums.
