New Century International is
dedicated to a philosophy... diversification can reduce risk without
sacrificing performance. The Portfolio's objective is to provide capital
growth and, as a secondary objective, to earn income. New
Century maintains rigorous investment qualifications for the mutual funds in
which it invests: strong performance, reasonable risk-adjusted
returns and consistent management styles. International investments
may involve additional risks, such as currency rate fluctuation,
different financial and accounting standards, and political
instability that may cause greater volatility and expose the
Portfolio to other risks generally not associated investments. Diversification does not
assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk
of investment loss.
Diversification through a blend
of value and growth investments allocated among large-cap,
mid-cap, small-cap positions allocated geographically among
mature and emerging markets.

The New Century
International Portfolio seeks to achieve its investment objective by
investing primarily in shares of registered investment companies
that emphasize investments in equities such as common stocks,
preferred stocks or securities convertible into stocks,
but with a focus on securities in foreign and emerging markets, and
with less emphasis on securities in domestic markets.
