7 Mutual fund benefits A mutual fund is a diversified, professionally managed portfolio of securities, and most funds include stock and bond holdings in dozens sometimes hundreds of different companies. When you invest in a mutual fund, you re buying shares in a multimillion-dollar portfolio. 5

8 Mutual fund benefits Professional management A key advantage of mutual funds is professional management of your investment. Portfolio managers of Putnam funds constantly manage and monitor the funds, conduct extensive research, select appropriate investments, and decide when to buy and sell fund holdings. The managers are supported by research analysts, economists, and industry specialists who analyze companies, regions, sectors, and market conditions around the world. Diversification The mutual fund shares you own are pooled with those of many other investors, which can help you take advantage of more opportunities than you could on your own. Mutual funds spread your money across a number of different stocks or bonds, which is an important strategy because your return isn t dependent on any single investment. Access to your money While mutual funds are designed for long-term investing, they also offer the advantage of liquidity, which means you can access your money on any business day. For more information, see How to sell shares on page 26. Flexibility to move to another fund In most cases, you can move your money from one Putnam fund to another without paying a sales charge. You can make exchanges online at putnam.com, by calling , or by mail. Be sure to read each fund s prospectus before exchanging. There may be tax consequences when you exchange shares. 6 For more information or for a password to access your account, visit our website at putnam.com.

9 Your fund s Board of Trustees Every Putnam mutual fund is monitored by a Board of Trustees, which is responsible for protecting your interests as a fund shareholder. The Trustees duties include general oversight of each fund s business, reviewing each fund s investment performance, and overseeing the quality of other services such as administration, custody, and investor services. At least annually, the Trustees review the fees and operating expenses paid by your fund to Putnam Management and its affiliates, and negotiate changes that they deem appropriate. In carrying out their responsibilities, the Trustees are assisted by an independent administrative staff and by auditors and legal counsel, which are selected by the Trustees and are independent of Putnam Management and its affiliates. Electing your fund s Trustees As a shareholder, you have an opportunity to elect your fund s Trustees. Each Putnam fund has committed to elect Trustees every five years, beginning in Under SEC requirements, at least 75% of a fund s Trustees must be independent, which means that they are not affiliated with Putnam Investments. 7

10 The value of your financial representative Expertise and guidance In a world of rapidly changing markets and thousands of mutual funds from which to choose a full-service financial representative is an invaluable resource for investors. A financial representative can help you narrow your investment options to those that are most suited to you. Even the most experienced investors benefit from the comprehensive research, timely information, and expertise that a financial professional can provide. An important partnership Whether you re starting a new job, beginning a family, saving for college, or planning for retirement, you ll want investments that will grow and build wealth over time. A partnership with a full-service financial representative can help you determine your objectives, evaluate your risk tolerance, and create a long-term financial plan to help you pursue your goals. A valuable partnership Consult with your financial representative to Determine your goals: Evaluate your risk tolerance: Narrow your investment options: Monitor your long-term financial plan Save for college Plan for retirement Buy a new home Aggressive Moderate Conservative Mutual funds 529 college savings plans Retirement savings plans 8

11 Types of mutual fund ownership Mutual fund ownership takes many forms. Talk to your financial representative about which ownership option is best for you. Individual ownership The most common type of ownership, individual ownership is available to any U.S. person 18 or older. Joint account Two or more U.S. persons may own an account together. Registration options are: Rights of survivorship Tenants in common Tenants by entirety Custodial account You may open this type of account for a minor without having to name a legal guardian or establish a trust. Business ownership Companies may take advantage of mutual funds to invest their savings or their employee retirement plans. Questions? Contact your financial representative or call Putnam at

12 Share classes and expenses As an investor, you should know about a fund s share classes, fees and expenses, and ways to reduce the sales charges you pay on your investment. As always, you should work with your financial representative to determine appropriate investment choices. Share classes While all investors in a mutual fund own shares in the same portfolio, you will pay different sales charges and expenses depending on the share class you own. All Putnam mutual funds are available in different share classes, including the most common: class A, class B, class C, and class M. Putnam also offers class R, class T, and class Y shares for some funds. Class A and class M shares have a front-end load, meaning their price includes a sales charge. Class B shares have no front-end load, but may charge a fee if you sell them within a predetermined length of time. Class C shares have no sales charge unless you redeem them within the first year. Class B, C, and M shares have higher expenses than class A shares. Sales charges Sales charges pay for the services of your financial representative. The initial sales charge, also known as a front-end load, is paid when you purchase your fund shares. The contingent deferred sales charge, or CDSC, is paid if you sell your shares within a defined period. The type and level of sales charges you pay depends on the share class you choose and the amount of your investment. Expenses Expenses, deducted from your fund s returns annually, pay for investâ ment advisory services, administration, and, for most share classes, 12b-1 fees, which cover the marketing and distribution of the fund to new investors. Putnam is committed to keeping the expenses of every fund below the average expenses of front-end load funds in its peer group. 10

13 Reducing your sales charge Letter of intent To reduce your sales charge, you agree to invest a minimum dollar amount over 13 months. You will pay the initial sales charge applicable to the total amount you have agreed to purchase. However, the maximum amount that can be invested in class B shares is $100,000. Class B trades that would cause linked accounts to attain $100,000 or more will be refused until you and your representative determine a more appropriate class of shares. Whenever you make an investment under this arrangement, you or your financial representative should notify Putnam that a letter of intent is in effect. Please refer to the prospectus. Cumulative discount You can combine the value of your new investment with that of your existing Putnam accounts; once you reach certain investment levels, you qualify for a reduced sales charge. You or your financial representative should inform Putnam of any existing accounts when you make a new investment. Breakpoint discounts If you choose class A or class M shares, you can reduce your sales charges with breakpoint discounts, which offer lower charges for larger investments. To help you qualify for these discounts, Putnam offers several methods for aggregating investments made by you and your family members. Breakpoint discounts for class A shares Equity fund sales charge Absolute Return 500/700 Funds sales charge Tax-free and taxable income fund sales charge Absolute Return 100/300, Floating Rate Income, Short-Term Municipal Income Funds sales charge Less than $50, % 5.75% 4.00% 1.00% $50,000 to $99, % 4.50% 4.00% 1.00% $100,000 to $249, % 3.50% 3.25% 1.00% $250,000 to $499, % 2.50% 2.50% 1.00% $500,000 to $999, % No sales charge No sales charge No sales charge $1,000,000 No sales charge No sales charge No sales charge No sales charge 11

14 Mutual fund share prices NAV (net asset value) NAV, or net asset value, is the basic value, or price, of one share of a mutual fund, without a sales charge. Stock funds seek to raise the NAV, representing growth in the value of an investment. NAV is calculated at the end of each business day the New York Stock Exchange is open by adding the value of all the individual securities in the fund, and then subtracting its liabilities. This number is then divided by the number of shares outstanding to determine the fund s NAV. This is the price that is posted daily in the newspaper and on Putnam s website. Just as the prices of individual securities fluctuate, a fund s NAV changes with market conditions. You can seek to take advantage of these fluctuations to lower your average price per share. This strategy is called dollar cost averaging (see page 29). Share price fluctuates daily Daily NAV (net asset value) of a hypothetical mutual fund $10.60 $10.50 $10.51 $10.45 $10.46 Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Since it is common for a fund s NAV to fluctuate, many financial experts believe a 5- to 10-year horizon is a better indicator of how a fund has performed under various economic conditions. 12

15 Managing distributions Dividend distributions When funds earn income, it is paid to you and other shareholders in the form of dividend distributions. You can choose to receive dividends or to reinvest them in the fund to purchase more shares. To find out how often dividends are distributed for your fund, refer to the prospectus or our family of funds listing (see pages 35 37). Income can be paid to you Fund shares are purchased Some funds earn income Income can be reinvested Capital gains distributions When securities in your fund are sold at a profit, the profit can be paid to you and the other shareholders in the form of capital gains distributions. Unless you have chosen to receive these distributions in cash, they are automatically reinvested in your fund. You may also choose to have the distributions from one of your Putnam funds automatically reinvested in another of your Putnam funds at no additional charge (see page 28). For more information, ask your financial representative about Putnam s dividend plan. Questions? Contact your financial representative or call Putnam at

16 Measuring performance Daily prices One way to monitor your investment is to check its daily price, which is the value of one share of the fund. Putnam s website and other financial sites provide daily prices for all Putnam funds as of the last market close. You can also review the financial section of your daily newspaper. However, monitoring daily prices focuses only on short-term movements; it does not provide a long-term perspective. For investors seeking long-term growth, the best measure of a fund s performance is its total return. Moreover, you should always remember that past performance does not indicate future results. Total return This is a measure of performance that shows the change in the value of an investment over a given period of time and assumes that all earnings are reinvested in the fund to purchase additional shares. Your financial representative can provide you with your fund s 1-, 5-, and 10-year total returns, or you can access this information on Putnam s website, putnam.com, and in your fund s historical annual and semiannual reports. What is total return? This is a measure of performance that shows the change in the value of an investment over a given period of time. Initial investment minus sales charge Fund appreciation Reinvested income Total return There is always the risk that you may lose money with your investment. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate. Shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. 14

18 Monitoring your fund performance Many newspapers and financial websites report mutual fund performance in the form of daily prices and year-to-date total returns. It is important to note that prices are often shown at NAV, which represents the value of one share of the fund, without a sales charge. Putnam funds are sold through financial representatives at the POP (public offering price), which is the NAV plus any applicable sales charge. You can obtain price and return information at POP on Putnam s website in the Individual Investors section or from your financial representative. You can monitor the daily performance of your Putnam funds in the financial section of many daily newspapers and on the web. 16 For more information or for a password to access your account, visit our website at putnam.com.
