Investment Objectives

The sub-adviser uses a disciplined, fundamental bottom-up approach to security selection. The Fund is broadly diversified by issuer, sector and geographic region, without being subject to minimum or maximum allocation constraints by country. The Fund may invest up to 10% of its assets in securities of other mutual funds. The Fund may use derivatives only to hedge against potential loss in respect of foreign-denominated securities and foreign currencies.

Investment Strategy

We primarily use a fundamental, bottom-up approach to security analysis. We identify companies that we believe have the potential for significant long-term capital growth, and invest in the securities of those which can be obtained at a reasonable price. In conducting our analysis, we evaluate the financial condition and management of the company, its industry and relevant economic factors.
