Fund Description

Under normal market conditions, the fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of companies that derive a significant portion of their revenues from a group of vice industries that includes the alcoholic beverages, defense/aerospace, gaming and tobacco industries. It will concentrate at least 25% of its net assets in this group of four vice industries (but no more than 80% of its net assets in any single industry).
