Fund Description

The Fund seeks to meet its objective by investing in a portfolio of global common stocks and other equity securities without reference to benchmark constraints.

While the portfolio managers are not constrained by geographic limitations, the Fund ordinarily invests in securities of issuers located in at least six different countries. In addition, under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 40% of its total assets in securities of companies located outside the U.S. when market conditions are favorable, but, when market conditions are not favorable, invests at least 30% of its total assets in companies located outside the U.S. The Fund may invest in issuers located in emerging markets.

The Fund typically invests primarily in issuers with a market capitalization of more than $4 billion at the time of purchase and may participate in initial public offerings ("IPOs") and in securities offerings that are not registered in the U.S.

The portfolio managers employ a bottom-up approach to stock selection and select investments without regard to the geographic, industry, sector, or individual company weightings on any index. The portfolio managers focus on company research and the long-term outlook of companies and industries. Ideas can come from a wide variety of sources, including, but not limited to, research trips, company meetings, and relationships with industry thought leaders and academic institutions. Stock ideas are normally researched to assess a range of factors, including: long-term growth potential, geographic and industry positioning, competitive advantage, management, financial strength and valuation. The intended outcome is a portfolio of between 30 and 60 growth stocks with the potential to outperform the Fund's benchmark over the long term. The process can result in significant exposure to a single country or a small number of countries, and the Fund expects to have considerable exposure to Chinese companies including through China A shares, which are common stocks and other equity securities that are listed or traded on a Chinese stock exchange and which are quoted in renminbi, the official currency of China. The Fund is a non-diversified fund, which means that it may invest a relatively large percentage of its assets in a small number of issuers, industries or sectors. The Fund aims to hold securities for long periods (typically at least 5 years), which generally results in relatively low portfolio turnover and is in line with the portfolio managers' long-term investment outlook.

Consistent with this investment outlook, the portfolio managers seek to identify companies with the potential to sustain financial growth over the long term. When assessing a company's long-term growth prospects, the portfolio managers seek to identify and to incorporate a range of factors that they believe are material to managing the Fund's investment risks and maximizing capital appreciation.

The Manager believes that a company selected for the Fund's portfolio is unlikely to be financially sustainable in the long run if the portfolio managers believe that its approach to business is fundamentally out of line with changing societal expectations. The portfolio managers employ an investment process designed to identify companies with practices they believe are aligned with sustainable financial growth over the long-term, including environmental, social, and/or governance characteristics, such as stewardship, sustainable business practices, and/or corporate

culture. With respect to the consideration of a company's environmental characteristics, the portfolio managers believe that the possibility of climate-related disruptions and the related transition to a low-carbon economy present opportunities for, and specific risks relevant to, the Fund's holdings. As a result, the portfolio managers generally seek to invest the Fund's assets in companies that they believe are "climate-fit" for the future, which are companies that take appropriate steps (in the view of and as determined by the portfolio managers) to (i) reduce their direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions (i.e., pursue "net zero" carbon emission ambitions or targets), (ii) integrate the related challenges into business strategies (i.e., the company undertakes steps to understand and manage the related technological, market and environmental changes confronting its business), and/or (iii) provide robust disclosure on climate change and other significant environmental issues so that investors can better assess the related investment risks and opportunities to such company. However, the portfolio managers do not employ categorical restrictions or exclusions in assessing a company's climate-fitness. The portfolio managers expect that companies that they assess as climate-fit under the Fund's investment process will ultimately correlate with companies that themselves are aligned with a broader global transition toward net zero carbon emissions. In assessing progress against targets and goals for net zero alignment applicable to the Fund's overall portfolio, the portfolio managers focus primarily on the number of holdings they deem climate-fit and place lesser emphasis on the percentage of the Fund's assets those climate-fit holdings comprise.

The portfolio managers may sell a holding if they determine there has been a material deterioration in the investment case or as appropriate to make other investments or meet redemptions. When considering whether to sell a particular holding, the portfolio managers may give weight to their own ongoing considerations of the sustainability characteristics (including with respect to net zero) of the composition of the overall portfolio.

The Fund invests in equity securities either directly or indirectly, such as through depositary receipts, and may invest in preferred stocks, convertible securities and warrants. The Fund may invest without limitation in securities quoted or denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar and may hold such currencies. The Fund does not expect to engage in currency hedging and thus expects to be fully exposed to currency fluctuations relative to the U.S. dollar.
