Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. A non-diversified fund, one that may concentrate its assets in fewer holdings than a diversified fund, is more exposed to individual stock volatility than a diversified fund. Investments focused in the natural gas distribution and transmission industry may be adversely affected by rising interest rates, weather, and the wholesale pricing of alternative fuels. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risk and differences in accounting methods. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

The American Gas Association (AGA) Stock Index is a modified market capitalization weighted index, adjusted monthly, consisting of member companies of the AGA. One cannot invest directly in an index.

A Lipper Fund Award is awarded to one fund in each Lipper classification for achieving the strongest trend of consistent risk-adjusted performance against its classification peers over a three, five or ten-year period. Although Lipper makes reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the data contained herein, the accuracy is not guaranteed by Lipper.
