The investment objective of the Portfolio is to achieve high total return by maximizing current income and, to the extent consistent with that objective, capital appreciation. The Investment Manager intends to manage the Portfolio to maximize current income by taking advantage of market developments, yield disparities and variations in the creditworthiness of issuers. The Portfolio will pursue this objective through investment primarily in fixed-income securities of European companies and governments, at least two-thirds of the Portfolio's total assets in such securities, and may invest up to one-third of total assets in Euro- or European currency-denominated fixedincome securities of non-European issuers.
