Fund Description

The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities of "China companies." It also invests in American, Global and European Depositary Receipts. China companies may be any size across the entire market capitalization spectrum. In addition to the fund's main investments, the fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in securities that do not qualify as China company securities, but whose issuers, in the judgment of the investment manager, are expected to benefit from developments in the economy of China, Hong Kong or Taiwan. It is non-diversified.
