Objective

The Sub-Fund invests at least two thirds of its net assets, not including liquid assets, in equities or equity related securities of companies of any size which demonstrate promising growth potential and whose securities are listed or traded on a US stock exchange. Investing in companies of all capitalizations involves a risk that smaller, newer issuers in which the Sub-Fund invests may have limited product lines or financial resources, or lack of management depth.
