Strategy And Objective

The fund s investment objective is to seek total return. MFS (Massachusetts Financial Services Company, the fund s investment adviser) normally invests at least 80% of the fund s net assets in U.S. and foreign real estate-related investments. MFS normally invests the fund s assets primarily in equity securities. MFS generally focuses the fund s investments in equity real estate investment trusts (REITs) as well as similar entities formed under the laws of non-U.S. countries, but may also invest in mortgage REITs, hybrid REITs and other U.S. and foreign real estate-related investments, including emerging market real estate-related investments. MFS may invest the fund s assets in real estate-related investments of any size. However, issuers of real estate-related investments tend to have small-to-medium market capitalizations. MFS normally allocates the fund s investments across different REIT managers and property types, but may from time to time focus the fund s investments in any one or a few of these areas. MFS normally invests the fund s assets across different countries and regions, but MFS may invest a significant percentage of the fund s assets in issuers in a single country or region. MFS generally invests the fund s assets in at least three different countries and invests a percentage of the fund s net assets in securities of foreign issuers equal to at least the lesser of 40% or the percentage of foreign issuers in the FTSE EPRA Nareit Developed Real Estate Index less 15%. MFS may invest a significant percentage of the fund s assets in a single issuer or a small number of issuers. MFS uses an active bottom-up investment approach to buying and selling investments for the fund. Investments are selected primarily based on fundamental analysis of individual issuers. For purposes of the fund s 80% policy, net assets include the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes.
