Investment Objective The investment seeks to profit from a rise in hard currencies relative to the U.S. dollar. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of the value of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in "hard currency" denominated investments. The fund normally invests in a managed basket of hard currency denominated investments composed of high quality, short-term debt instruments, including sovereign debt, and indirectly in gold and gold-related securities. The fund is non-diversified.
