Portfolio Management

Christopher Darling Managed Fund since 2008
How Teng Chiou Managed Fund since 2014

Portfolio profile subject to change due to active management. Percentages may not total 100% due to rounding. Fund invests in an affiliated investment company (Portfolio) with the same objective(s) and policies as the Fund. References to investments are to the Portfolio's holdings.

About Risk 

Fund share values are sensitive to stock market volatility. Investments in foreign instruments or currencies can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical or other conditions. In emerging countries, these risks may be more significant. Asian economies are export-driven and can be affected by developments in the economies of their major trading partners. Governmental actions in China can have a significant affect on economic conditions in the Asia region. Smaller companies are generally subject to greater price fluctuations, limited liquidity, higher transaction costs and higher investment risk than larger, established companies. Because the Fund may invest significantly in a particular geographic region or country, value of Fund shares may fluctuate more than a fund with less exposure to such areas. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance is as of month-end for the stated time period only; due to market volatility, the Fund's current performance may be lower or higher than quoted. For the Eaton Vance Fund's performance as of the most recent month-end, please refer to eatonvance.com. Returns are historical and are calculated by determining the percentage change in net asset value (NAV) with all distributions reinvested. Returns shown at NAV unless noted otherwise.
