Important Information: Past performance is not indicative of future results. International investing entails special risk considerations, including currency fluctuations, lower liquidity, economic and political risks, and differences in accounting methods; these risks are generally heightened for emerging market investments. There are also risks associated with investing in Israel, including the risk of investing in a single-country fund. Concentrating investments in the Israel region subjects the Fund to more volatility and greater risk of loss than geographically diverse funds. Equity stocks of small and mid-cap companies carry greater risk, and more volatility than equity stocks of larger, more established companies. Aberdeen Asset Management Inc.
