1The Growth Fund is closed to most new investors. For further information, please see the section entitled "Additional Purchase and Redemption Information" in the SAI.

Figures quoted represent past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. 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 may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted and assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Current month-end performance is available here.

Public offering price (POP) is the price of one share of a fund including any sales charges. Net asset value (NAV) is the value of one share of the fund excluding any sales charges. Had sales charges been included, performance would be lower.

For Class A shares, the maximum front-end sales charge is 5.75%. Performance including sales charge assumes the sales charge for the corresponding time period.

The adviser has committed to fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements, through the Fund's contract date, to maintain the Fund's net expense ratio as shown. Without these reductions, the Fund's returns would have been lower, and the ratings may have been lower.

Performance for certain Wells Fargo Funds (each a "Fund") reflects a predecessor fund's performance and may be adjusted to reflect the Fund's sales charges and/or expenses. Predecessor fund performance may include performance of an unregistered collective investment fund that was not subject to the same requirements and restrictions as the Fund. Predecessor fund information can be found in each Fund's prospectus.
