The Fund seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation and, secondarily, current income, by investing primarily in common stocks and convertible securities.
Small-and Mid-cap stocks are considered riskier than large-cap stocks due to greater potential volatility and less liquidity. Investing in foreign markets involves the risk of social and political instability, market illiquidity, and currency volatility.
