The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation.
The Fund normally invests in equity securities issued by companies of any size that are located outside the United States. Some of these countries may be considered to be emerging market countries. The Fund diversifies broadly among countries, but may invest a substantial portion of its assets in one or more countries if economic and business conditions warrant such investments.

International investing involves additional risks, including currency fluctuations, differences in accounting standards, economic and political instability, illiquidity and higher trading costs and differences in foreign regulations, all of which are magnified in emerging markets. Value stocks can react differently to issuer, political, market and economic developments than the market overall and other types of stocks. This can cause the Fund to underperform other funds that use different investing styles. The Fund may purchase securities in derivatives, which can be very volatile and carry high transaction costs.
