The investment seeks capital appreciation.
The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of borrowings, if any, for investment purposes) in common stocks of mid cap companies.

The fund may invest up to 25% of assets in securities of foreign companies, including emerging market securities. It may also invest up to 10% of assets in real estate investment trusts ("REITs").
