Investment Objective The investment seeks long term growth of capital; current income is a secondary consideration. The fund invests primarily in common stocks that the investment adviser believes have the potential for growth. It invests in securities of companies that can benefit from innovation, exploit new technologies or provide products and services that meet the demands of an evolving global economy. The fund may invest a significant portion of its assets in issuers based outside the United States, including those based in developing countries.
