Performance cited represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results and current performance may be lower or higher than the data quoted. Returns shown are average annual total returns, which assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Investment returns and principal will fluctuate and you may have a gain or loss when you sell shares.

International investing involves special risk considerations, including currency fluctuations, lower liquidity, economic and political risk. Investing in emerging markets can increase these risks.

Investments in initial public offerings (IPOs) during favorable market conditions have significantly contributed to the Emerging Markets Growth Fund's performance since its inception.  As the Fund grows in size or as market conditions for IPOs become less favorable, the impact of IPOs is likely to diminish.

Investing in smaller companies involves special risks, including higher volatility and lower liquidity.

Class N Shares are available to the general public without a sales load. Class I Shares are available to certain institutional investors.

Lipper is a well-regarded firm that monitors mutual fund performance.
