Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities of companies located in "frontier market countries." It invests primarily in the equity securities of frontier market companies. The equity securities in which the fund invests are principally common stock and related depositary receipts and participatory notes. The fund may invest in the equity securities of companies of any size. Because frontier market companies tend to be considered small and micro-cap- the fund's investments in equity securities consist principally of those of small and micro-cap companies.
