The Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) Emerging Markets Index (net) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure equity market performance of emerging markets. The series approximates the minimum possible dividend reinvestment.

Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Returns for periods of one year or more are annualized. All charges and fees, except any entry, exit and switching charge, have been taken into account in calculating the Fund’s performance. Returns for other share classes will differ from those shown above. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that shares, on any given day or when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Levels and bases for taxation may change. For the most current month-end performance information, please visit our web site at sicav.williamblair.com.

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.
