Summary

The investment seeks to provide a total return (capital appreciation plus dividend income) greater than the return of the Standard & Poor's 500 Index. The fund invests at least 65% (and typically more than 90%) of assets in stocks that are included in the index. Most of the stocks held by the fund provide dividend income as well as the potential for capital appreciation. The advisors use computer models to select a broadly diversified group of stocks that, as a whole, have investment characteristics similar to those of the S&P 500 Index, but are expected to provide a higher total return than that of the index.
