  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks long-term capital growth.
The fund invests primarily in the equity securities of companies located anywhere in the world, including developing markets. The equity securities in which the fund primarily invests are common stock. Although the fund seeks investments across a number of countries and sectors, from time to time, based on economic conditions, it may have substantial positions in particular countries or sectors.
  Morningstar Category: Global Large-Stock Blend
Global large-stock blend portfolios invest in a variety of international stocks and typically skew towards large caps that are fairly representative of the global stock market in size, growth rates, and price. World large stock blend portfolios have few geographical limitations. It is common for these portfolios to invest the majority of their assets in developed markets, with the remainder divided among the globe’s emerging markets. These portfolios are not significantly overweight U.S. equity exposure relative to the Morningstar Global Market Index and maintain at least a 20% absolute U.S. exposure. 
  Investment Risks
There are no additional fund specific investment risks (e.g. liquidity risk, currency risk, foreign investment risk, etc.) associated with this fund beyond the normal risks generally associated with investing in a mutual fund.
