The investment seeks a favorable long-term total return, mainly through capital appreciation, by investing primarily in a portfolio of emerging market equity investments based on a market index.
Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets in equity securities that comprise its benchmark index, the MSCI Emerging Markets® Index ("MSCI EM Index"), or in instruments with economic characteristics similar to all or a portion of the MSCI EM Index. It buys most, but not necessarily all, of the stocks in its benchmark index, and will attempt to closely match the overall investment attributes of its benchmark index.
