Fund Description

The fund will invest primarily in equity securities of non-U.S. companies the majority of which are traded in mature markets (for example, Japan, Germany and France) and may invest in countries whose economies are still developing. It invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in foreign securities and "counts" relevant derivative positions towards this "80% of assets" allocation, and in doing so, values each position at the price at which it is held on its books.
