Investment Objectives

To provide capital appreciation over the medium to longer term. The Fund invests primarily in equity and equity-type securities of multinational companies throughout the world. It may also invest in companies that the portfolio sub-advisors expect will achieve multinational status. Income will not be a prime consideration for securityholders in the Fund. The fundamental investment objective of the Fund cannot be changed without the approval of investors who own securities in the Fund.

Investment Strategy

The investment strategy of the Fund is to invest in a diversified portfolio of equities and equity-type investments in developed and emerging markets. Equity-type investments include, but are not limited to, convertible stocks, stock exchange-listed warrants, ADRs, IPUs and ETFs. The Fund will invest in securities of franchise companies. A franchise company is one whose return on invested capital over a three-year period is above its cost of capital.
