Fund Description

Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in companies that are engaged in mining, processing, fabricating, distributing, exploring for or otherwise dealing in gold. The fund may change this 80% policy only upon 60 days’ prior written notice to shareholders. In selecting stocks for the fund, the portfolio managers use quantitative and qualitative management techniques in a multi-step process. First, the managers rank stocks from most attractive to least attractive based on an objective set of measures, including valuation, quality, and sentiment. The portfolio managers then review the output of the quantitative model and also consider other factors, such as economic events, corporate announcements, risk management, transaction costs, and liquidity, to build a portfolio that they believe will provide a balance between risk and return.
The portfolio managers generally sell a stock when they believe it has become less attractive relative to other opportunities, its risk characteristics outweigh its return opportunity or specific events alter its prospects.
