Overall Morningstar Rating as of based on risk-adjusted returns (I share).
|rank percentile||Morningstar RatingTM||Out of # of funds|
As of , for class I shares (). Other share classes may have different ratings. The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product 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. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10- year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The Morningstar percentile ranking is based on the fund’s total-return percentile rank relative to all managed products that have the same category for the same time period. The highest (or most favorable) percentile rank is 1%, and the lowest (or least favorable) percentile rank is 100%. Morningstar total return includes both income and capital gains or losses and is not adjusted for sales charges.

4Pursuant to a contract, Equitable Investment Management has agreed to make payments or waive its management, administrative and other fees to limit the expenses of the Fund through April 30, 2023 (unless the Board of Trustees consents to an earlier revision or termination of this arrangement) (“Expense Limitation Arrangement”) so that the annual operating expenses (including Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses) of the Fund (exclusive of taxes, interest, brokerage commissions, capitalized expenses (other than offering costs), 12b-1 fees, and extraordinary expenses not incurred in the ordinary course of the Fund’s business) do not exceed an annual rate of average daily net assets of 0.95% for Class A shares, Class T shares, Class I shares, and Class R shares of the Fund. The Expense Limitation Arrangement may be terminated by Equitable Investment Management ® at any time after April 30, 2023. The Adviser may be reimbursed the amount of any such payments or waivers in the future provided that the payments or waivers are reimbursed within three years of the payments or waivers being recorded and the Fund’s expense ratio, after the reimbursement is taken into account, does not exceed the Fund’s expense cap at the time of the waiver or the Fund’s expense cap at the time of the reimbursement, whichever is lower. The total annual fund operating expense ratios after fee waiver and/or expense reimbursement for Class A shares, Class T shares, and Class R shares, as shown in the table, are higher than the Fund’s ex- pense cap because these ratios include 12b-1 fees and certain other expenses, as noted above, that are excluded from the Expense Limitation Arrangement.

Funds that emphasize investments in small-cap companies generally experience greater price volatility.
The Fund's investments in mid- and small-cap companies may involve greater risks than investments in larger, more established issuers because they generally are more vulnerable than larger companies to adverse business or economic developments.
