Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The Portfolio, using a market capitalization weighted approach, purchases securities of large non-U.S. companies in countries with developed markets that the Advisor determines to be value stocks at the time of purchase, while excluding securities of companies based on the Portfolio's social issue screen to exclude tobacco companies. It defines tobacco companies as companies that derive more than 10% of their total business revenue, or more than 10% of total sales, from the production and/or manufacturing of tobacco and/or tobacco related products.
