About the Global Emerging Markets Fund
The Global Emerging Markets Fund is a portfolio of companies located in the faster-growing emerging market countries around the globe. The fund focuses on holding smaller, dividend-paying and undervalued companies in developing markets that have rising urbanization and growing domestic wealth. We believe these companies offer outstanding growth opportunity for investors who can tolerate a little extra volatility in a diversified portfolio.
The Global Emerging Markets Fund seeks long-term growth of capital.
Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80 percent of its net assets in equity securities such as common stocks, preferred stock, convertible securities, rights and warrants, and depositary receipts of companies located in emerging market countries or in companies with a significant business presence in emerging countries. Emerging market countries are those countries defined as such by the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation, the United Nations or the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
The fund’s benchmark is the MSCI Emerging Markets Net Total Return Index.
