Investment Objectives

The Fund’s investment objective is to provide long-term capital appreciation principally through exposure to equity securities of issuers with a smaller market capitalization. The investment objective cannot be changed unless shareholders of the Fund approve the change at a meeting.

Investment Strategy

To achieve its objective, the Fund invests in Russell Investments Global Smaller Companies Pool. The Fund may use derivatives from time to time for hedging and non-hedging purposes. The Fund may use derivatives to hedge against changes in the value of the Fund’s investments caused by changes to the exchange rates between the Canadian dollar and other currencies.
