Tax Information

This information on 2016 distributions is intended for existing shareholders.

As large shareholders ourselves, we are conscious of tax costs and make every effort to be tax efficient.

Capital gains result from the appreciation of companies in the portfolio. The funds’ long-term investment approach means that this appreciation may have occurred over an extended period of time. All of the gains are long term and generally subject to lower tax rates than short-term gains or dividend income.

Shareholders should not use this information for tax reporting purposes. Form 1099 will be sent at a later date for all tax reporting.

The table above includes the percentage of 2016 dividend and net short-term capital gain distributions, by fund, that are eligible for reduced tax rates as "qualified dividend income" (QDI). QDI-eligible amounts, including any net short-term capital gains, are reported to shareholders in Box 1b of Form 1099-DIV. For those shareholders who do not receive a Form 1099-DIV, QDI-eligible amounts can be determined by applying the relevant percentages from the table to the dividend and net short-term capital gain distributions shown on the shareholder's 2016 year-end account statement. Individual questions should be referred to your tax advisor.

Carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, strategies, risks, charges and expenses before investing or sending money. The prospectus contains this and other information and can be obtained by clicking here
