Past performance does not guarantee future results. Morningstar proprietary ratings reflect historical risk-adjusted performance for funds with at least a 3-year performance history and are subject to change each month. Morningstar Ratings™ are calculated from a fund’s three-, five-, and ten-year average annual returns in excess of the 90-day U.S. Treasury bill returns, with appropriate fee adjustments, and a risk factor that reflects performance below the 90-day Treasury bill return. Within each asset class the top 10% of funds receive 5 stars (Highest); the next 22.5% receive 4 stars (Above Average); the middle 35% earn 3 stars (Average); the next 22.5% receive 2 stars (Below Average); and the bottom 10% receive 1 star (Lowest). The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. © 2016 Morningstar, Inc.
