         Securities Laws, and any laws, rules and regulations of
         governmental authorities having jurisdiction with respect to the
         duties to be performed by PFPC hereunder. Except as specifically
         set forth herein, PFPC assumes no responsibility for such
         compliance by the Fund or other entity.

5.       Instructions.

         (a)      Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, PFPC shall
                  act only upon Oral Instructions or Written Instructions.

         (b)      PFPC shall be entitled to rely upon any Oral Instruction
                  or Written Instruction it receives from an Authorized
                  Person (or from a person reasonably believed by PFPC to
                  be an Authorized Person) pursuant to this Agreement. PFPC
                  may assume that any Oral Instruction or Written
                  Instruction received hereunder is not in any way
                  inconsistent with the provisions of organizational
                  documents or this Agreement or of any vote, resolution or
                  proceeding of the Fund's Board of Directors or Trustees
                  or of the Fund's shareholders, unless and until PFPC
                  receives Written Instructions to the contrary.

         (c)      The Fund agrees to forward to PFPC Written Instructions
                  confirming Oral Instructions (except where such Oral
                  Instructions are given by PFPC or its affiliates) so that
                  PFPC receives the Written Instructions by the close of
                  business on the same day that such Oral Instructions are
                  received. The fact that such confirming Written
                  Instructions are not received by PFPC or differ from the
                  Oral Instructions shall in no way invalidate the
                  transactions or enforceability of the transactions
                  authorized by the Oral Instructions or PFPC's ability to
                  rely upon such Oral Instructions.

6.       Right to Receive Advice.

         (a)      Advice of the Fund. If PFPC is in doubt as to any action
                  it should or should not take, PFPC may request directions
                  or advice, including Oral Instructions or Written
                  Instructions, from the Fund.

         (b)      Advice of Counsel. If PFPC shall be in doubt as to any
                  question of law pertaining to any action it should or
                  should not take, PFPC may request advice from counsel of
                  its own choosing (who may be counsel for the Fund, the
                  Fund's investment adviser or PFPC, at the option of
                  PFPC).

         (c)      Conflicting Advice. In the event of a conflict between
                  directions or advice or Oral Instructions or Written
                  Instructions PFPC receives from the Fund and the advice
                  PFPC receives from counsel, PFPC may rely upon and follow
                  the advice of counsel.

         (d)      Protection of PFPC. PFPC shall be indemnified by the Fund
                  and without liability for any action PFPC takes or does
                  not take in reliance upon directions or advice or Oral
                  Instructions or Written Instructions PFPC receives from
                  or on behalf of the Fund or from counsel and which PFPC
                  believes, in good faith, to be consistent with those
                  directions or advice and Oral Instructions or Written
                  Instructions. Nothing in this section shall be construed
                  so as to impose an obligation upon PFPC (i) to seek such
                  directions or advice or Oral Instructions or Written
                  Instructions, or (ii) to act in accordance with such
                  directions or advice or Oral Instructions or Written
                  Instructions.

7.       Records; Visits.

                  Portfolios which are in the possession or under the

                  books and records shall be prepared and maintained as

                  Persons shall have access to such books and records at
                  all times during PFPC's normal business hours. Upon the
                  reasonable request of the Fund, copies of any such books
                  and records shall be provided by PFPC to the Fund or to
                  an Authorized Person, at the Fund's expense.

                        transactions; and

         any of them; (b) any scientific or technical information, design,

         obligations if it: (a) is already known to the receiving party at
         the time it is obtained; (b) is or becomes publicly known or
         available through no wrongful act of the receiving party; (c) is

         confidentiality; (d) is released by the protected party to a third
         party without restriction; (e) is required to be disclosed by the

         such requirement, to the extent such notice is permitted); (f) is
         relevant to the defense of any claim or cause of action asserted
         against the receiving party; or (g) has been or is independently
         developed or obtained by the receiving party.

9.       Liaison with Accountants. PFPC shall act as liaison with the
         Fund's independent public accountants and shall provide account
         analyses, fiscal year summaries, and other audit-related schedules
         with respect to each Portfolio. PFPC shall take all reasonable
         action in the performance of its duties under this Agreement to
         assure that the necessary information is made available to such
         accountants for the expression of their opinion, as required by
         the Fund.

10.      PFPC System. PFPC shall retain title to and ownership of any and
         all data bases, computer programs, screen formats, report formats,
         interactive design techniques, derivative works, inventions,
         discoveries, patentable or copyrightable matters, concepts,
         expertise, patents, copyrights, trade secrets, and other related
         legal rights utilized by PFPC in connection with the services
         provided by PFPC to the Fund.

         available. In the event of equipment failures, PFPC shall, at no
         additional expense to the Fund, take reasonable steps to minimize
         service interruptions. PFPC shall have no liability with respect
         to the loss of data or service interruptions caused by equipment
         failure, provided such loss or interruption is not caused by
         PFPC's own willful misfeasance, bad faith, negligence or reckless
         disregard of its duties or obligations under this Agreement.

12.      Compensation. As compensation for services rendered by PFPC during
         the term of this Agreement, the Fund, on behalf of each Portfolio,
         will pay to PFPC a fee or fees as may be agreed to in writing by
         the Fund and PFPC.

13.      Indemnification. The Fund, on behalf of each Portfolio, agrees to
         indemnify, defend and hold harmless PFPC and its affiliates,
         including their respective officers, directors, agents and
         employees from all taxes, charges, expenses, assessments, claims
         and liabilities (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees
         and disbursements and liabilities arising under the Securities
         Laws and any state and foreign securities and blue sky laws)
         arising directly or indirectly from any action or omission to act
         which PFPC takes in connection with the provision of services to
         the Fund. Neither PFPC, nor any of its affiliates, shall be
         indemnified against any liability (or any expenses incident to
         such liability) caused by PFPC's or its affiliates' own willful
         misfeasance, bad faith, negligence or reckless disregard in the
         performance of PFPC's activities under this Agreement. Any amounts
         payable by the Fund hereunder shall be satisfied only against the
         relevant Portfolio's assets and not against the assets of any
         other investment portfolio of the Fund. The provisions of this
         Section 13 shall survive termination of this Agreement.

14.      Responsibility of PFPC.

                  on behalf of the Fund or any Portfolio except as
                  specifically set forth herein or as may be specifically
                  agreed to by PFPC and the Fund in a written amendment
                  hereto. PFPC shall be obligated to exercise care and
                  diligence in the performance of its duties hereunder and
                  to act in good faith in performing services provided for
                  under this Agreement. PFPC shall be liable only for any
                  damages arising out of PFPC's failure to perform its
                  duties under this Agreement to the extent such damages
                  arise out of PFPC's willful misfeasance, bad faith,
                  negligence or reckless disregard of such duties.

         (b)      Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the
                  contrary, (i) PFPC shall not be liable for losses,
                  delays, failure, errors, interruption or loss of data
                  occurring directly or indirectly by reason of
                  circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including
                  without limitation acts of God; action or inaction of
                  civil or military authority; public enemy; war;
                  terrorism; riot; fire; flood; sabotage; epidemics; labor
                  disputes; civil commotion; interruption, loss or
                  malfunction of utilities, transportation, computer or
                  communications capabilities; insurrection; elements of
                  nature; or non-performance by a third party; and (ii)
                  PFPC shall not be under any duty or obligation to inquire
                  into and shall not be liable for the validity or
                  invalidity, authority or lack thereof, or truthfulness or
                  accuracy or lack thereof, of any instruction, direction,
                  notice, instrument or other information which PFPC
                  reasonably believes to be genuine.

         (c)      Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the
                  contrary, (i) neither PFPC nor its affiliates shall be
                  liable for any consequential, special or indirect losses
                  or damages, whether or not the likelihood of such losses
                  or damages was known by PFPC or its affiliates and (ii)
                  PFPC's cumulative liability to the Fund for all losses,
                  claims, suits, controversies, breaches or damages for any
                  cause whatsoever (including but not limited to those
                  arising out of or related to this Agreement) and
                  regardless of the form of action or legal theory shall
                  not exceed the lesser of $100,000 or the fees received by
                  PFPC for services provided hereunder during the 12 months
                  immediately prior to the date of such loss or damage.

         (d)      No party may assert a cause of action against PFPC or any
                  of its affiliates that allegedly occurred more than 12
                  months immediately prior to the filing of the suit (or,
                  if applicable, commencement of arbitration proceedings)
                  alleging such cause of action.

         (e)      Each party shall have a duty to mitigate damages for
                  which the other party may become responsible.

         (f)      The provisions of this Section 14 shall survive
                  termination of this Agreement.
