Securities are selected based on an assessment of their investment merit and exposure to selected themes. The Fund’s investments will be concentrated in the information technology sector, and therefore, may be concentrated in one or more industries within the information technology sector.The Fund is classified as “non-diversified” under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”).
