Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data current to the most recent month end may be obtained by calling 844.PZN.1996 (844.796.1996). The fund imposes a 1.00% redemption fee on shares held 60 days or less. Performance does not reflect the redemption fee and, if it had, returns would be lower.
The Net Expense ratio represents the percentages paid by investors. The Net Expense ratio includes expenses relating to short sales. If expenses relating to short sales were excluded, the Total Expense ratio would have been 1.75% for PZILX and 2.10% for PZVLX.
**Contractual fee waivers (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses (“AFFE”), interest expenses, taxes, dividends on securities sold short and extraordinary expenses) through 6/27/20.

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, without adjustment for sales loads. 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. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. PZILX was rated against the following numbers of Long-Short Equity Funds over the following time periods: 192 funds in the last three years; 148 funds in the last five years. With respect to these Long-Short Equity Funds, PZILX received a Morningstar rating of 1 star for the three-year period and 1 star for the five-year period. The rating is specific to PZILX and does not apply to other share classes of the Fund. © 2020 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in small- and mid-cap companies involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility than larger companies. Investments in foreign securities involve political, economic and currency risks, greater volatility and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for investments in Emerging Markets. The fund may have emphasis on a specific sector which could adversely affect a fund to a greater extent than if its emphasis was less. The fund may invest in securities which are less liquid and more difficult to sell than more liquid securities. The fund may invest in p-notes which are a type of equity linked derivative and involve counterparty risk and risk that the performance of the security may not exactly match the performance of the issuer. Investments in REITs are subject to the risks associated with the direct ownership of real estate.
