Investment Objectives

Long-term capital growth. The Fund seeks to provide above average long-term returns by investing in securities of global, small-cap companies. The Fund is primarily invested in equity securities of companies located around the world. The amount invested in any one country varies depending upon the economic, investment, and market outlook and opportunities in each area. The Fund may also invest in treasury bills or short-term investments, not exceeding three years to maturity, from time to time.

Investment Strategy

The strategies that the portfolio sub-advisor employs in order for the Fund to achieve its objectives are: systematically creating a broadly diversified portfolio of wealth-creating companies bought at discounts to their intrinsic values; employing a long-term holding period to allow for investor recognition or corporate growth.
