Summary

The investment seeks long term capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of foreign and domestic issuers principally engaged in gold-related activities and gold bullion. It focuses on stocks that are undervalued, but which appear to have favorable prospects for growth. Because most of the world's gold production is outside of the United States, a significant portion of the fund's assets may be invested in securities of foreign issuers, including those located in developed as well as emerging markets.
