Global Agriculture Class    
Profile   Highlights

The Fund's objective is to provide long-term growth of capital by investing in equity securities of issuers with high growth potential operating in the agricultural sector.

An increase in economic activity in developing nations, such as China and India, has had a positive impact on the demand for fertilizers and soft commodities. Production constraints should also support higher agricultural commodity prices as a number of agricultural sectors are facing significant supply challenges including the lack of growth in global arable land.

A growing middle class in China and India and the corresponding wealth impact is expected to drive increased demand for higher-protein foods such as meat and poultry. As a result, the amount of grains necessary to raise and sustain the requisite livestock will increase, thereby increasing the demand for agricultural inputs such as fertilizer, seeds and farming equipment.

The Fund is authorized to issue series of shares designated as Series A and Series F class.
