NATIONWIDE INTERNATIONAL INDEX FUND

Mutual Fund Details From Nationwide

Overview

Investment Objective & Strategy

The Fund seeks to match the performance of the Europe, Australasia and Far East Index (the MSCI EAFE® Index) as closely as possible before the deduction of Fund expenses. The Fund employs a "passive" management, or indexing, approach designed to match approximately the performance of the MSCI EAFE Index before the deduction of Fund expenses. Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in a statistically selected sampling of equity securities of companies included in the MSCI EAFE Index and in derivative instruments linked to the MSCI EAFE Index, primarily futures contracts.
