Summary

The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation; current income is a secondary consideration in selecting portfolio investments. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in common stocks of small-cap companies. It employs a "growth" style of investing. In other words, the fund subadviser seeks companies whose earnings are expected to grow consistently faster than those of other companies. In pursuing this approach, the subadviser seeks to build a portfolio of exceptional small companies, purchased early in their corporate life cycle, that have the wherewithal to become exceptional large companies.
