  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation.
The fund invests primarily in a broad range of equity securities of companies located in emerging market countries. Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the fund' net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, will be invested in emerging market issuers (80% policy). The fund may invest in companies of any size and may invest more than 25% of its total assets in the securities of issuers located in the same country.
  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. 
  Investment Risks
Foreign Securities Funds/Emerging Market Funds: Risks include, but are not limited to, currency risk, political risk, and risk associated with varying accounting standards. Investing in emerging markets may accentuate these risks.
