Developing market countries include those considered to be developing by the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation,the United Nations,or the countries' authorities; countries with a stock market capitalization of less than 3% of the MSCI World Index; or countries included in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index or the MSCI Frontier Markets Index. These countries typically are located in the Asia-Pacific region,Eastern Europe,Central and South America,the Middle East and Africa.The Fund invests primarily in the equity securities of developing market companies,principally common and preferred stocks.The Fund's investments in equity securities may include investments in the securities of companies of any capitalization,including small and mid capitalization companies.The Fund also invests in American, Global,and European Depositary Receipts.The Fund,from time to time,may have significant investments in one or more countries,such as China or South Korea,or in particular industries or sectors,based on economic conditions.In addition to the Fund's main investments,the Fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in the securities of issuers in developed market countries.When choosing equity investments for the Fund,the investment manager applies a fundamental research,value-oriented,long-term approach,focusing on the market price of a company’s securities relative to the investment manager’s evaluation of the company’s long-term earnings,asset value and cash flow potential.The investment manager also considers a company’s profit and loss outlook,balance sheet strength,cash flow trends and asset value in relation to the current price of the company's securities.The investment manager may consider selling an equity security when it believes the security has become overvalued due to either its price appreciation or changes in the company's fundamentals,or when the investment manager believes another security is a more attractive investment opportunity.
