Investment Objective

The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of stocks issued by companies located in the major markets of Europe.

The FTSE Developed Europe Index is made up of approximately 500 common stocks of companies located in 16 European countries-mostly companies in the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, and Germany (which made up approximately 33%, 15%, 14%, and 14%, respectively, of the index's market capitalization as of October 31, 2013).
