The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve a high total return comprised of income, currency and capital appreciation. As the Fund will invest at least 80% of its Net Asset Value in Emerging Markets and may invest a substantial portion of its assets in securities rated below Investment Grade, the Net Asset Value of the Fund may have a relatively high level of volatility and investors should note that an investment in the Fund should not constitute a substantial portion of an investment portfolio and may not be appropriate for all investors.
