Important Disclosure

All data as of September 30, 2014 unless otherwise noted. The composition of the Fund’s holdings is subject to change.

Data shown is historical performance for each share class and reflects reinvested distributions. Investment return and principal value will vary so that you may have a gain or loss when you sell shares. Public Offering Price (POP) performance data for Class A shares includes the maximum 5% sales charge. POP performance data for Class C shares includes the 1% Contingent Deferred Sales Charge (CDSC). Class I shares do not impose a sales charge. Only eligible investors may purchase Class I shares, as described in the prospectus. Past performance does not guarantee future results; current performance may be higher or lower than data quoted. For performance current to the most recent month-end, click here.

International securities are subject to political influences, currency fluctuations and economic cycles that may be unrelated to those affecting the domestic financial markets and may experience wider price fluctuations than US domestic securities.

Large company stocks as a group could fall out of favor with the market and underperform investments that focus on small- and mid-sized company stocks.

The Fund is non-diversified and will hold fewer securities than a diversified portfolio. The Fund may be more affected by the performance of a particular stock, either positively or negatively, than a more broadly diversified fund.

The following are total annual operating expense ratios for Sentinel Growth Leaders Fund Class A, C, & I shares; A - 1.36%, C - 3.43%, and I - 1.13%. Expense ratio data is sourced from the Fund's most recent prospectus.

The Sentinel Growth Leaders Fund began operations on March 17, 2006. Performance prior to March 17, 2006 is based on the performance of its predecessor, the Bramwell Focus Fund, which began operations on October 31, 1999 and was offered without a sales charge.

  1. Performance of Class A shares reflects the current maximum sales charge. Performance of Class A shares from their inception on March 17, 2006 to June 29, 2012 has not been adjusted to reflect the lower maximum 12b-1 fee in effect prior to March 17, 2006 or the decrease in the maximum 12b-1 fee, effective June 30, 2012, from 0.30% to 0.25%. If it had, those returns would be higher.
  2. Performance of the Class C shares prior to their inception on March 17, 2006 is based on the performance of the Bramwell Focus Fund, but reflects the higher ongoing expenses of Class C shares.
  3. Performance of the Class I shares from March 17, 2006 to their inception on August 27, 2007 is based on the performance of the Fund's Class A shares, restated to reflect that Class I shares are not subject to a sales charge. Performance of the Class I shares prior to March 17, 2006 is based on the performance of the Bramwell Focus Fund. Only eligible Investors may purchase Class I shares, as described in the prospectus.
  4. Expense ratio before custodian credits and reimbursements. Source: Fund's most recent prospectus.
  5. Total annual turnover quoted from the most recent annual report.
