All mutual funds are subject to market risk, including the loss of principal. The Amana Funds limit the stocks they purchase to those consistent with Islamic principles which limits opportunities and may increase risk. Generally, these principles require that investors avoid interest (riba) and investments in businesses such as liquor, pornography, gambling, and banks. The Funds avoid bonds and other interst-bearing securities while seeking protection against inflation by making long-term equity investments.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% 4 stars, the next 35% 3 stars, the next 22.5% 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating™ for a fund is derived from a weighted average of performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.
