The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities of companies located in Europe, Australasia, the Far East and other regions, including emerging countries.
As a non-fundamental policy, under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of the value of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities issued by companies that are located in, or that derive the highest concentration of their earnings or revenues from, a number of countries around the world other than the U.S. The Fund's investment team employs a fundamental, bottom-up equity investment style, which is characterized by intensive, first-hand research and disciplined company evaluation.
