Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital growth. To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in the stocks of companies organized, or with a majority of assets or business, in emerging market countries. In selecting stocks, the portfolio managers identify potential investments through extensive quantitative and fundamental research using a value-oriented, research-driven approach. The fund's managers consider emerging market countries to be generally all countries represented by the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) Emerging Markets Index. It is non-diversified.
