Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities of large-capitalization companies (the 80% policy). It invests primarily in securities of large-capitalization companies that the Manager believes have long-term capital appreciation potential. The fund's advisor currently defines large-capitalization stocks as those with market capitalizations of $5 billion or greater at the time of purchase.
