Fund Description

The fund normally invests in a diversified portfolio of common stocks, American Depositary Receipts ("ADRs"), European Depositary Receipts ("EDRs") and Global Depositary Receipts ("GDRs") of companies the fund manager believes are high quality (lower debt/total capital, earnings stability and stable cash flow), sustainable and undervalued. It will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus borrowings for investment purposes, in the securities of non-U.S. companies that meet the Adviser's ESG criteria.
