For the periods ended September 30, 2019, the AIG Focused Dividend Strategy Fund’s Morningstar Overall rating is 4 stars, its 3-year rating is 2 stars, its 5-year rating is 3 stars and its 10-year rating is 5 stars. Ratings not calculated by Morningstar for the 1-year period. Overall Rating is based out of 1,090 funds in the Large Value category. The Fund ranked #840 out of 1,217 funds for 1 year, #963 out of 1,090 funds for 3 years, #416 out of 944 funds for 5 years and #31 out of 693 funds for 10 years. Morningstar is an independent investment research firm that rates the performance of mutual funds based on return and risk. For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variations in a fund’s monthly performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar Rating is for the A share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
