Strategy And Objective

The Funds investment objective is to seek capital appreciation.The Fund invests mainly in common stock of small- and mid-cap companies that are domiciled, or have their primary operations, outside the United States.Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of small-and mid-cap companies, and in derivatives and other instruments that have economic characteristics similar to such securities. The Fund considers small-and mid-cap companies to be those having a market capitalization in the range of the MSCI All Country World (ACWI) ex USA SMID Cap Index. The capitalization range of the index is subject to change at any time due to market activity or changes in its composition. The range of the index generally widens over time and is reconstituted periodically to preserve its market cap characteristics. The Fund measures a companys capitalization at the time the Fund buys a security and is not required to sell a security if the companys capitalization moves outside of the Funds capitalization definition. The Fund will invest at least 65% of its total assets in foreign securities.The Fund s portfolio managers evaluate investment opportunities on a company-by-company basis. This approach includes fundamental analysis of a companys financial statements, management record and structure, operations,product development and industry competitive position. In addition, the portfolio managers may also look for companies with conservatively-capitalized balance sheets, high and consistent internal rates of return, and a favorable market position within healthy and growing industries. These factors may vary in particular cases and may change over time.The portfolio managers consider the effect of worldwide trends on the growth of particular business sectors and look for companies that may benefit from those trends. The portfolio managers monitor individual issuers for changes in the factors above, which may trigger a decision to sell a security.
