Investment Objective The investment seeks investment income; and, as a secondary objective, to seek capital appreciation. Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in dividend-paying equity securities of, or derivatives having economic characteristics similar to the dividend-paying equity securities of, companies domiciled in, or tied economically to, emerging market countries. It may also invest in pre-emerging markets, also known as frontier markets, which are emerging market countries that are considered to be among the smallest, least mature and least liquid. The fund is non-diversified.
