Fund Description

The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of Japanese companies. The fund's manager considers a Japanese company to be a company organized under the laws of Japan, for which the principal securities trading market is Japan, or that has a majority of its assets or business in Japan. While it is considered a "diversified" mutual fund, it employs a relatively concentrated investment strategy and may hold securities of fewer issuers than other diversified funds.
