- Hansberger International Growth Fund
The Madison Hansberger International Growth Fund seeks to provide high long-term total return.
The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80% of total assets in the equity securities (including common stock, preferred stock and convertible securities) of companies organized or located outside of the U.S. Even though these companies are based outside of the U.S., their securities may be traded on U.S. securities markets. The fund will invest in at least three different countries and generally expects to be invested in more than three countries, including countries considered to be emerging market countries. The fund anticipates that it will invest primarily in common stock, though the balance of its equity holdings may vary.
