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.
