The investment seeks to provide shareholders with long-term growth of capital.
Under normal circumstances, the fund invests in equity securities and other investments that are selected primarily for their long-term growth potential. It may also invest up to 40% of its assets in various types of fixed income and variable income securities, including up to 25% in securities rated below investment grade (commonly called "high yield securities" or "junk bonds"). The fund may invest in issuers of any capitalization. It may invest without limit in foreign investments, including investments in emerging markets.
