The aim of the Fund is to grow the amount you invested. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in shares of smaller companies in Japan or companies that have significant operations there. As it invests in smaller companies, the Fund will mainly choose shares from companies that are smaller in size than the top 250 stocks listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange First Section.
