  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation through investments in equity securities of companies based in emerging markets.
The Portfolio invests at least 80% of its net assets in emerging markets securities, which includes frontier markets securities, and investment companies. It invests at least 65% of its total assets in common stocks, preferred stocks, rights and warrants issued by companies that are based in emerging or frontier markets, securities convertible into such securities (including Depositary Receipts), and investment companies that invest in the types of securities in which the Portfolio would normally invest.
  Morningstar Category: Diversified Emerging Mkts
Diversified emerging-markets portfolios tend to divide their assets among 20 or more nations, although they tend to focus on the emerging markets of Asia and Latin America rather than on those of the Middle East, Africa, or Europe. These portfolios invest predominantly in emerging market equities, but some funds also invest in both equities and fixed income investments from emerging markets.
