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.

Small company stocks can be more volatile than large company stocks.

Certain Sentinel Funds have adopted a redemption fee. For the Small Company Fund, a fee of 2% will be assessed on the redemption of shares held for 30 calendar days or less.

The following are total annual operating expense ratios for Sentinel Small Company Fund Class A, C, & I shares; A - 1.21%, C - 1.93%, I - 0.81%. Expense ratio data is sourced from the Fund's most recent prospectus.

  1. Performance of the Class C shares prior to their inception on July 9, 2001 is based on the performance of the Fund's Class A shares, adjusted to reflect that Class C shares do not charge a front-end sales charge but may be subject to a CDSC and for higher ongoing expenses. The "since inception" performance data for Class C shares is calculated from March 1, 1993, which was the inception date of the Fund.
  2. Performance of the Class I shares prior to their inception on May 4, 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. The "since inception" performance data for Class I shares is calculated from March 1, 1993, which was the inception date of the Fund. Only eligible investors may purchase Class I shares, as described in the prospectus.

Morningstar ratings reflect historical risk-adjusted performance as of October 31, 2014 and are subject to change every month. Ratings are based on a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variations in monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees) emphasizing downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Ten percent of the funds in a category receive five stars, 22.5% four stars, 35% three stars, 22.5% two stars and 10% one star. The Overall Rating reflects a weighted average of a fund’s 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) risk adjusted performance. The peer category is Morningstar Small Growth.

Morningstar Load-Waived Ratings supplement Morningstar Ratings for Class A shares by recalculating measures that are load-adjusted without the effects of the front-end sales charge. Load Waived ratings should only be considered by investors who are not subject to the Fund’s front-end sales charge.
