Fund Description

Main Investments. The fund invests primarily in foreign equities (equities issued by foreign based companies and listed on foreign exchanges) and may invest in companies of any size and from any country, including countries with emerging economies. The fund’s equity investments may also include preferred stocks and other securities with equity characteristics, such as convertible securities and warrants.The fund will generally invest less than 20% of its assets in US equities.Management process. Portfolio management aims to add value through stock selection. In choosing securities, portfolio management employs a risk-balanced bottom-up selection process to identify companies it believes are well-positioned. Portfolio management utilizes a bottom-up investment process designed to identify attractive investments utilizing fundamental analysis, including regional and sector research, conducted by in-house analysts. The investment process aims to identify stocks that portfolio management believes present a compelling combination of superior growth and quality characteristics at attractive valuations. Portfolio management may also consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors that it believes to be financially material. The resulting portfolio is risk balanced through diversification across companies at different growth lifecycle stages, and managed by seeking to appropriately size positions and adapt portfolio construction as market conditions change.Portfolio management will normally sell a stock when its price fully reflects portfolio management's estimate of its fundamental value, its fundamentals have deteriorated, other investments offer better opportunities or in the course of adjusting the fund’s exposure to a given country or sector.Securities lending. The fund may lend securities (up to one-third of total assets) to approved institutions, such as registered broker-dealers, pooled investment vehicles, banks and other financial institutions. In connection with such loans, the fund receives liquid collateral in an amount that is based on the type and value of the securities being lent.
