Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in common stocks of companies with significant exposure to countries with developing economies and/or markets. It normally invests at least 35% of assets in equity and debt securities of issuers primarily based in qualified countries that have developing economies and/or markets. The fund may also invest in equity securities of any company, regardless of where it is based, if the fund's investment adviser determines that a significant portion of the company's assets or revenues (generally 20% or more) is attributable to developing countries.
