A Sentinel Sustainable Fund's environmental, social and corporate governance criteria may cause the Fund to forgo opportunities to buy certain securities, and/or forgo opportunities to gain exposure to certain industries, sectors, regions and countries. In addition, a Sentinel Sustainable Fund may be required to sell a security when it might otherwise be disadvantageous for it to do so.

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 domestic securities.

The Sentinel Sustainable Mid Cap Opportunities Fund, which began operations on April 4, 2008, is a successor to the Citizens Emerging Growth Fund, which began operations on February 8, 1994. On March 29, 2012, the Fund changed its portfolio management team and modified its investment strategies. Performance and ratings prior to March 29, 2012 relate to the Fund's prior management team and investment strategies.

  1. Performance of the Class A shares prior to their inception on April 4, 2008 is based on the performance of the Standard shares of the Citizens Emerging Growth Fund, which were offered without a sales charge, and reflects the current maximum sales charge. Performance of Class A shares from April 4, 2008 to June 29, 2012 has not been adjusted to reflect the lower maximum 12b-1 fee in effect prior to April 4, 2008 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 I shares from November 1, 1999 to their inception on April 4, 2008 is based on the performance of the Institutional shares of the predecessor. Performance prior to November 1, 1999 is based on the performance of the Standard shares of the predecessor. Only eligible investors may purchase Class I shares, as described in the prospectus.
