The investment seeks long-term growth of capital.
The fund principally invests (normally at least 80% of its net assets, plus borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of domestic and foreign companies of any size engaged in all sectors of the gold mining and precious metals industries. A foreign company is one that is organized under the laws of a foreign country and has the principal trading market for its stock in a foreign country. Normally it invests primarily in senior gold producers, intermediate/mid-tier gold producers and junior gold producers; and gold mining exploration and development companies. The fund is non-diversified.
