i) Security Valuation
All securities for which market quotations are readily available are valued at the last sales price prior to the time

mean between the current bid and asked prices. Investments in short-term debt securities having a maturity of 60

good faith by the Board of Directors. In valuing the Fund's assets, quotations of foreign securities in a foreign
currency are translated to U.S. dollar equivalents at the exchange rate in effect on the valuation date.
