Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term growth of capital; current income is a secondary consideration. The fund attempts to concentrate on ownership of high-quality businesses, which typically possess high barriers to market entry, low intensity of rivalry with competitors, limited threat of substitution, and limited bargaining power of suppliers and customers. No more than 35% of its total assets will be invested in the securities of foreign issuers. The fund may be moderately concentrated, with 30-40 positions. Most of these companies will be small to medium market capitalization (up to U.S. $10 billion).
