INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE
NA
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. Normally the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in growth-oriented common stocks and other equity-type securities (such as preferred stocks, convertible preferred stocks and convertible bonds) of companies with small market capitalizations. The investment adviser currently defines "small market capitalization" companies to be companies with market capitalizations of $4.0 billion or less. Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest a significant portion of its assets outside the United States, including in emerging markets.
