Fund Description

The fund invests primarily in securities of companies located in at least three developed countries world-wide (excluding the United States). The portfolio managers look for stocks of companies they believe will increase in value over time, using an investment strategy developed by the fund's investment advisor. Under normal market conditions, the fund's portfolio managers seek securities of companies whose earnings, revenues or key business fundamentals are not only growing, but growing at an accelerating pace. The fund normally invests in a relatively limited number of companies, generally 35-50.
