Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities of "China companies." It also invests in American- Global and European Depositary Receipts. China companies may be any size across the entire market capitalization spectrum. In addition to the fund's main investments- the fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in securities that do not qualify as China company securities- but whose issuers- in the judgment of the investment manager- are expected to benefit from developments in the economy of China- Hong Kong or Taiwan. It is non-diversified.
