Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate; an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. The Fund's transfer agency expenses may be reduced by expense offsets from an unaffiliated transfer agent, without which performance would have been lower. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted above. For performance information current to the most recent month end, click on Total Returns By Month tab above.

Performance for the Institutional Shares prior to 5/29/2009, is based on the performance of the Retail Shares, which have a distribution fee. The Institutional Shares do not have a distribution fee. If the annual returns prior to 5/29/2009 did not reflect this fee, the returns would be higher.

*As of fiscal year ended 12/31/2013, the total expense ratio of the Fund's Institutional Shares was 1.41% (comprised of a 1.11% expense ratio plus an interest expense of 0.30%).

Reflects actual fees and expenses charged when the Fund was a partnership. The partnership charged a 20% performance fee. If the annual returns for the Fund did not reflect the performance fee for the years the predecessor partnership charged a performance fee, the returns would be higher. The Fund’s shareholders are not charged a performance fee. The partnership’s performance is before April 30, 2003. During that period, the partnership was not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and was not subject to its requirements or the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code relating to registered investment companies, which, if it was, might have adversely affected its performance.

Historical Performance is annualized and for the period since inception on 1/31/1992 through 12/31/1992.
