Investment Objective:The Fund seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. Any income received is incidental to this objective.
Investment Strategy:The Fund is actively managed and invests mainly in a diversified portfolio of U.S. companies that, at the time of purchase, are in the small capitalization range of companies comprising the Russell 2000® Index. The Fund's portfolio is not limited to the companies listed in the Russell 2000® Index and, as such, is diversified among a large number of companies across different industries and economic sectors. Because the Fund may continue to hold a security whose market capitalization increase or decreases over time, a portion of the Fund's holdings may have market capitalizations outside the range of the Russell 2000® Index at any given time.
Investment Suitability:This Fund may be suitable for investors who seek higher, long-term rates of return, can accept significant short-term fluctuations in account value, want to invest in stocks of small to medium-size U.S. companies and would like to diversify their portfolio by adding a potentially higher return, higher risk option of stocks.
Small company stocks are generally riskier than large company stocks due to greater volatility and less liquidity. 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.
