Investment Objective The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in the equity securities of small-capitalization companies located in numerous countries outside the United States that an advisor believes offer the potential for capital appreciation. In doing so- each advisor considers- among other things- whether the company has the potential for above-average earnings growth- whether the company's securities are attractively valued- and whether the company has a sustainable competitive advantage. It uses multiple investment advisors.
