Overview

The GMO Emerging Domestic Opportunities Series Fund's investment objective is total return. 
The Emerging Markets Equity team invests in companies that we believe will benefit most from the rising demand for goods and services in emerging markets. The Fund employs a fundamental investment approach that combines top-down country and sector allocation with bottom-up security selection. The process focuses on investing in higher quality companies at a reasonable price and places an emphasis on downside protection through multi-layered risk control and dynamic allocation.

Risks

Risks associated with investing in the Fund may include those as follows. (1) Market Risk - Equities: The market price of an equity may decline due to factors affecting the issuer or its industry or the economy and equity markets generally. Declines in stock market prices generally are likely to reduce the net asset value of the Fund's shares. (2) Non-U.S. Investment Risk: The market prices of many non-U.S. securities (particularly of companies tied economically to emerging countries) fluctuate more than those of U.S. securities. Many non-U.S. markets (particularly emerging markets), are less stable, smaller, less liquid, and less regulated than U.S. markets, and the cost of trading in those markets often is higher than it is in U.S. markets. (3) Currency Risk: Fluctuations in exchange rates can adversely affect the market value of the Fund's foreign currency holdings and investments denominated in foreign currencies. For a more complete discussion of these risks and others, please consult the Fund's prospectus.
