Important Fund Information

The principal risks of investing in the Calamos Global Equity Fund include: equity securities risk consisting of market prices declining in general, growth stock risk consisting of potential increased volatility due to securities trading at higher multiples, value stock risk, foreign securities risk, forward foreign currency contract risk, emerging markets risk, small and mid-sized company risk and portfolio selection risk. As a result of political or economic instability in foreign countries, there can be special risks associated with investing in foreign securities, including fluctuations in currency exchange rates, increased price volatility and difficulty obtaining information.

Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

The Fund's investment advisor has contractually agreed to reimburse Fund expenses through March 1, 2024 to the extent necessary so that Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (excluding taxes, interest, short interest, short dividend expenses, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extra-ordinary expenses, if any) of Class A, Class C, and Class I are limited to 1.40%, 2.15%, and 1.15% of average net assets, respectively. The Fund's investment adviser has contractually agreed to limit the Fund's annual ordinary operating expenses through March 1, 2024 for Class R6 shares (as a percentage of average net assets) to 1.15% less the annual sub- transfer agency ratio for the Fund.

For purposes of these expense limitations, operating expenses do not include taxes, interest, short interest, short dividend expenses, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses, if any. Calamos Advisors LLC ("Calamos Advisors") may recapture previously waived expense amounts within the same fiscal year for any day where the respective Fund's expense ratio falls below the contractual expense limit up to the expense limit for that day.
