Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund invests at least 80% of the assets in high-technology companies. The adviser considers a high-technology company to be one that employs a relatively high degree of engineering and/or scientific intensity to deliver its products or services. It may purchase stocks of small-, mid-, and large-cap companies. Due to the fund's focus on emerging opportunities within the technology sector, its investments tend to include younger companies with market capitalizations in the small- or mid-cap categories. The fund is non-diversified.
