Principal Investment Strategies
The underlying mutual fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in the common stocks of a diversified group of growth companies. While it may invest in companies of any market capitalization, the underlying mutual fund generally seeks investments in stocks of large capitalization companies. While most of its assets will typically be invested in U.S. common stocks, the underlying mutual fund may invest in foreign stocks in keeping with its objectives. It may at times invest significantly in technology stocks.
