Description

Fund Objective
The fund's investment objective is to provide you with long-term growth of capital.
Distinguishing Characteristics
Seeks to take advantage of evolving global trade patterns by predominantly investing in companies that have potential for growth in capital. Invests primarily in multinational companies with a meaningful share of their sales and operations outside of their home countries. This approach provides the strategy’s portfolio managers with geographic flexibility and the ability to navigate different markets.
Types of Investments
The fund invests primarily in common stocks, convertibles, preferred stocks, bonds and cash.
Holdings Outside the U.S.
The fund may invest up to 100% of assets outside the United States, though this is unlikely since New Perspective Fund is a global fund.
