Morningstar Sustainability RatingsTM and ScoresTM

Sustainalytics is an independent ESG and corporate governance research, ratings, and analysis firm and is not an affiliated company of Morningstar, Inc.

The Morningstar Sustainability Rating™ is a monthly measure of how well the holdings in a portfolio are managing their environmental, social, and governance, or ESG, risks and opportunities relative to their Morningstar Category peers. Globe icons depict the Morningstar Sustainability Rating as follows: 5 globes (High); 4 globes (Above Average); 3 globes (Average); 2 globes (Below Average) and 1 globe (Low). Sustainalytics, a leading provider of ESG research, provides company-level analysis used in the calculation of Morningstar’s Sustainability Score. The Morningstar Sustainability Rating calculation is a two-step process. First, each fund with at least 50% of assets covered by a company-level ESG score from Sustainalytics receives a Morningstar® Portfolio Sustainability ScoreTM. The Morningstar Portfolio Sustainability Score is an asset-weighted average of normalized companylevel ESG scores with deductions made for controversial incidents by the issuing companies, such as environmental accidents, fraud, or discriminatory behavior. The Morningstar Sustainability Rating is then assigned to all scored funds within Morningstar Categories in which at least ten (10) funds receive a Portfolio Sustainability Score and is determined by each fund’s rank within the following distribution: High (highest 10%); Above Average (next 22.5%); Average (next 35%); Below Average (next 22.5%) and Low (lowest 10%). A Sustainability Rating is assigned to any fund that has more than half of its underlying assets rated by Sustainalytics and is within a Morningstar Category with at least 10 scored funds; therefore, the rating it is not limited to funds with explicit sustainable or responsible investment mandates.

The Fund’s adviser may integrate ESG considerations in its investment research process, which may mean forgoing some investment opportunities available to funds that do not consider ESG information.
