Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in the common stocks of companies engaged in the research- development- production- or distribution of products or services related to health care- medicine- or the life sciences (collectively termed "health sciences"). While the fund can invest in companies of any size- the majority of fund assets are expected to be invested in large- and mid-capitalization companies.
