Objective And StrategyObjective
High total return consistent with reasonable risk.
The Series invests in a diversified portfolio of securities of non-U.S. issuers, including companies, governments, governmental agencies and international organizations, which may be denominated in foreign currencies. The Series may invest in any region of the world, including emerging markets. Under normal circumstances, the Series will invest at least 80% of its assets in non-U.S. issuers located in not less than three countries. From time to time, the Series may have more than 25% of its assets invested in any major industrial or developed country. The Series will invest primarily in common stocks of established non-U.S. companies, as well as preferred stock and depositary receipts, believed to have potential for capital growth, income or both.
* This portfolio invests in securities of foreign issuers which involves risks not typically associated with domestic issuers, including currency fluctuations and the possibility of political and economic instability. Emerging markets involve risks in addition to those generally associated with foreign securities, because political and economic structures in many emerging markets may be undergoing significant evolution and rapid development.
* This Fund may invest in publicly issued equity securities, including common stocks. Investments in common stocks are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time.
* The value of your investment in a Fund is based on the net asset value ("NAV") of the underlying funds and, in turn, the securities that the underlying funds hold. The Funds are subject to the risk that one or more underlying funds will not perform as expected or will under perform other similar funds or that the combination of underlying funds selected by the Funds' investment will not perform as expected. The Funds will be exposed to all of the risk of an investment in the underlying Funds.
* The risk that a preferred stock will decline in price, or fail to pay dividends when expected, because the issuer experiences a decline in its financial status, or that such stock may be illiquid.
