Investment Objective:The Fund seeks to provide investment results approximating the aggregate price and dividend performance of securities included in the S&P 500® Index.
Investment Strategy:Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest substantially all, and normally at least 80% of its total assets, in the equity securities of the companies that make up the S&P 500® Index, in weightings that approximate the relative composition of the securities contained in the S&P 500® Index. The Fund is passively managed, which means it tries to duplicate the investment composition and performance of the S&P 500® Index while using computer programs and statistical procedures. As a result, the sub-adviser does not use traditional methods of investment management for the Fund, such as selecting securities on the basis of economic, financial and market analysis. Rather, the sub-adviser buys and sells securities in response to changes in the S&P 500® Index.
This Fund may be suitable for investors who seek higher, long-term rates of return, can accept significant short-term fluctuations in account value and want to diversify their portfolio by adding a potentially higher return, higher risk option of stocks.
Economic, market, political and other conditions and events can cause the value of equity securities to fluctuate. This description of risks is provided as a summary of the principal investment risks associated with this mutual fund. Refer to the Fund's prospectus for more detailed risk information.
