Summary

The investment seeks to provide a tax-efficient investment return consisting of long-term capital appreciation. The fund purchases stocks that pay lower dividends and are included in the Russell 1000 Index-an index that is made up of the stocks of large- and mid-capitalization U.S. companies. It uses statistical methods to "sample" the index, aiming to minimize taxable dividends while approximating the other characteristics of the index. The expected result is a portfolio that will loosely track the total return performance of the index, but with lower taxable income distributions.
