Investment Objective

To provide investors with long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in the common stock of small- to mid-capitalization companies located outside the U.S.

Investment Strategy

The Series invests primarily in the common stock of small- to mid-capitalization companies traded outside the U.S. Investments made are either included in the MSCI ACWI ex USA Small Cap Index or have equity capitalizations within the range of $5 billion or smaller at the time of purchase.

Investment decisions are based on fundamental analysis, which emphasizes bottom-up stock selection of companies that exhibit strong growth, clear key earnings drivers and attractive valuations. The investment team evaluates companies across all sectors and regions using this growth and valuation criteria.

May be Appropriate for Investors

  • Seeking a long-term (15 years or more) investment and who are willing to accept the risk of investing in foreign equity securities

A Word About Risk

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. As with any stock fund, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to stock market movements. Small- and medium-capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large-capitalization companies. Funds whose investments are concentrated in foreign and emerging market countries may be subject to fluctuating currency values, different accounting standards, and economic and political instability. The value of the Series may be affected by changes in exchange rates between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar. Investments in emerging markets may be more volatile than investments in more developed markets. Additionally, the Series is subject to portfolio turnover risk as it may buy and sell investments frequently, which may result in higher expenses and an increase in realized capital gains and potential tax implications for shareholders.
