Fund Description

The fund invests primarily in micro-cap companies. It will invest at least 80% of the fund's net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in the equity securities of micro-capitalization companies. The adviser considers a company to be a micro-capitalization company if its market capitalization, at the time of purchase, is less than the larger of $1.5 billion or the market capitalization of the largest company in the Russell Microcap Index. The fund may invest up to 30% of its total assets at the time of purchase in securities issued by foreign companies in developed or emerging markets.
