The investment seeks long-term growth of capital.
The fund invests primarily in common stocks of a limited number of U.S. and foreign companies that are selected for their long-term growth potential. It invests significantly (generally, at least 40% of its net assets) in the securities of issuers economically tied to foreign countries (unless market conditions are not deemed favorable by the Subadviser, in which case the fund generally will invest less than 40%, but at least 30%, of its assets in such foreign securities).
The investment seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation.
The fund will generally invest its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of large capitalization issuers. Equity securities include, but are not limited to, common stocks, preferred stocks, securities convertible into common stocks, rights and warrants. Under normal market conditions, at least 40% of the fund's net assets will be invested in the securities of foreign issuers including those in emerging markets, through, but not limited to, American Depository Receipts ("ADRs") or other depositary receipts. The fund is non-diversified.
