The Portfolio's total investment return may consist generally of interest and dividend income, as well as discount accruals and capital changes, including changes in the value of portfolio securities and other assets and liabilities resulting from currency fluctuations. Under normal market conditions, the Portfolio expects that no less than 70% of its total assets will be invested in securities denominated in the Currency of the Portfolio or securities hedged to the Currency of the Portfolio.
