GAMCO International Growth Fund, Inc. seeks to provide investors with long-term capital appreciation. The production of any current income is incidental. Capital is the amount of money you invest in the Fund. Capital appreciation is an increase in the value of your investment.
Principal Investment Strategies:
The Fund invests primarily in equity securities of foreign issuers located in at least three countries outside the United States which are likely to have rapid growth in revenues and earnings and potential for above-average capital appreciation. Equity securities include common and preferred stocks, securities convertible into common stocks and securities like rights and warrants that have common stock characteristics. The Fund seeks to invest in companies that have the potential to grow faster than other companies in their respective equity markets and are priced at attractive valuation levels.
The Fund may appeal to you if:
you are a long-term investor
you seek growth of capital
you seek to diversify domestic investments with investments in foreign securities
You may not want to invest in the Fund if:
you are seeking a high level of current income
you are conservative in your investment approach
you seek stability of principal more than potential growth of capital
