The fund seeks long-term capital growth through an investment approach which includes fundamental and quantitative analysis, investing in a portfolio comprised primarily of U.S. large-cap growth stocks.
PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE
"The true benefit of this Fund is that it combines focused fundamental and quantitative research, allowing us to better identify the most attractive growth investment opportunities which may offer the potential for superior returns over time."
A WORD ABOUT RISK
Investments in mid-sized companies may offer the potential for higher returns, but are also subject to greater short-term price fluctuations than larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in a limited number of securities and, as a result, the fund's performance may be more volatile than the performance of other funds holding more securities. At times, the Fund's investments may represent industries or industry sectors that are interrelated or have common risks, making it more susceptible to any economic, political, or regulatory developments or other risks affecting those industries and sectors.
