Summary

The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation and income. The fund invests substantially all of its assets in U.S. common stocks, with a focus on value stocks-those that are generally out of favor with investors and that typically (but not always) have lower-than-average price/earnings (P/E) ratios. The advisor selects stocks of primarily large and mid-size companies by using quantitative models to identify stocks that the advisor believes offer a good balance between reasonable valuations and attractive growth prospects relative to their industry peers.
