Global Agriculture Class    
Profile   Highlights

The Fund's objective is to provide long-term growth of capital by investing in equity securities of issuers with high growth potential operating in the agriculture and food industires.

In order to feed the rising global population while also lowering carbon emissions, the food & agriculture industry will need to reinvent itself and focus on key sustainable technologies that support efficient use of land & resources, reduce food loss & waste and contribute to better nutrition. Companies that develop business models to address these goals will share in a multi-trillion dollar investment opportunity.

With most investors planning to increase allocations to food & agriculture, we see great potential in emerging technologies such as precision agriculture, agri-food testing, vertical farming and alternative proteins. Continued development in these areas should help to improve crop & livestock yields, reduce water & energy usage and encourage a healthier diet.

The Fund is authorized to issue series of shares designated as Series A and Series F class.
