Investment Objectives

The fundamental investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities of companies that are engaged in the research, development, production or distribution of products or services related to science and technology. The fundamental investment objective may only be changed with the approval of a majority of unitholders, given at a meeting called for that purpose.

Investment Strategy

The sub-adviser seeks to achieve the fundamental investment objective of the Fund by investing at least 65% of the Fund’s total assets in the common stocks of companies expected to benefit from the development, advancement, and use of science and technology. Some of the industries included in the portfolio are electronics (including hardware, software, and components), communications, e-commerce, information services and media, among others.
