Focus: The Strategy typically invests in emerging and developing market stocks.


Justin M. Leverenz, CFA
Director of Emerging Markets Equities and Portfolio Manager
Managed fund since 5/07


The portfolio manager invests in emerging-market businesses that appear likely to grow at a faster pace than world GDP and may benefit from distinctive structural global growth themes that we call "Big Ideas." Within this framework, the portfolio manager relies on fundamental analysis to search for exceptional businesses with sustainable competitive advantages, strong management and high return on capital.

Special Risks: Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Due to the recent global economic crisis that caused financial difficulties for many European Union countries, Eurozone investments may be subject to volatility and liquidity issues. Investments in securities of growth companies may be volatile. Small and mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger, more established businesses, as these stocks tend to be more sensitive to changes in earnings expectations. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a small or mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. The Fund may invest a significant portion of assets in a particular region, which may increase volatility and exposure to risks associated with that particular region.
As of 4/12/13, the purchase and exchange of Fund shares is restricted, subject to certain exceptions. Please see the prospectus supplement for further information.
