Investment Objective

This Fund seeks to create a diversified portfolio of equity securities in order to outperform the total return performance of its benchmark, the Russell 1000® Growth Index*.

Investment Overview

The investment seeks to outperform the total return performance of its benchmark index, the Russell 1000® Growth Index, while maintaining risk characteristics similar to those of the benchmark.
