Focus: The Strategy typically invests opportunistically in both U.S. and foreign stocks.


Frank Jennings, Ph.D.
Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager
Managed fund since 10/95


The portfolio manager invests opportunistically in foreign and domestic companies that appear likely to grow at a faster pace than world GDP and may benefit from four distinctive global themes that we call MANTRA®: Mass Affluence, New Technology, Restructuring and Aging.  Within this framework, the portfolio manager uses rigorous, fundamental analysis to find industries with the highest probability for structural growth and companies with above average earnings potential due to unique product offerings and defensible positions.  The portfolio has a barbell strategy that is designed to increase stability by dividing the portfolio between "offensive" and "defensive" stocks.

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. Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the Fund's share prices can fall. May invest up to 25% in below-investment-grade ("high yield" or "junk") bonds, which are more at risk of default and are subject to liquidity risk. Diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss.
