            The investment seeks long-term growth of capital plus protection against inflation and monetary instability; current income is a secondary objective. Under normal market conditions, the fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets in equity and equity-related securities of companies principally involved in the mining, fabrication, processing, marketing or distribution of precious metals including gold, silver, platinum group, palladium and diamonds. It may invest in warrants to gain exposure to individual securities in the gold and precious metals industry over the long term. The fund is non-diversified.
