New Login Security Feature Coming Soon for Investors

A one-time passcode feature will replace the security image and questions that investors use to log in to their online accounts.

A Stronger, More Convenient Login Process
In addition to greater account security, the one-time passcode feature will make it easier for investors to reset their password or verify their identity when we don’t recognize the device they’re using to access their account.

We’ll Help Them Get Started
To establish this new security feature, we’ll ask investors to provide an email address or text-enabled phone number when they log in to their account.

A Change to the Homepage
When this security feature is introduced, investors will also notice a change on the homepage of our website. The link to log in to their accounts will be located in the upper-right corner of the page, in the black navigation bar.

Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.

This material is intended for use by financial professionals or in conjunction with the advice of a financial professional.

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing.
