Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital growth. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in foreign securities. These securities are predominantly equity securities of companies located outside the U.S., including developing markets. The equity securities in which the fund invests are predominantly common stock, and may include smaller and midsize companies. Although the investment manager will search for investments across a large number of countries and sectors, from time to time, based on economic conditions, it may have significant positions in particular countries or sectors.
