    Basic Information

    Investment Objective

    The investment objective is to provide a high level of total return. A fundamental research-driven investment process will be applied in order to pursue this objective. Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the net assets, including any borrowings for investment purposes, will be invested in securities in both U.S. and non-U.S. markets. The Fund intends to invest primarily in a managed mix of global equity securities. Up to 20% of the total assets may be invested in fixed income securities, including both corporate and sovereign debt in both U.S. and non-U.S. markets. The Fund will not invest more than 10% of total assets in below investment grade securities, and not more than 20% in securities of governments and companies in emerging markets.
