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® Value 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. The fund invests substantially all (but no less than 80%) of its net assets in common stocks of companies whose market capitalizations at the time of purchase are within the market capitalization range of companies included within the Russell 1000 Growth Index ("index"). The index is an unmanaged index that contains those stocks with a greater than average growth orientation among the stocks of the 1000 largest U.S. companies based on total market capitalization.
