The Fund’s investment objective is to seek total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation, measured in US dollars. The Fund invests primarily (at least 70%) in equity securities of companies located in developed and emerging market countries. The Fund normally invests primarily in income-producing equity securities. The Fund invests the majority of its assets in dividend-paying common stocks, but may invest in other types of incomeproducing securities, including convertible securities, preferred stocks and closedended real estate investment trusts (REITs) or stocks of companies principally engaged in the real estate industry. The Fund may also invest in non-incomeproducing equity securities.
