Fund Objective: Seeks long-term growth of capital.

  • Investment Strategy and Process
    The Fund normally invests at least 80% of its assets in companies with market capitalizations in excess of $4 billion at time of purchase.

    The Subadvisor looks for companies that generally possess some or all of the following attributes: addressing markets with growth opportunities; favorable market share; identifiable and sustainable competitive advantages; a management team that can perpetuate the firm's competitive advantages; and attractive, and preferably rising, return on invested capital.

    The Subadvisor takes a "bottom-up" investment approach, basing investment decisions primarily on company-specific factors, rather than general economic conditions.

Before You Invest

Typically, the Subadvisor intends to invest substantially all of the Fund’s investable assets in domestic securities. However, the Fund is permitted to invest up to 20% of its net assets in foreign securities. Growth stocks may be more volatile than other stocks because they are generally more sensitive to investor perceptions and market moves. During periods of growth stock underperformance, the Fund’s performance may suffer. Foreign securities can be subject to greater risks than U.S. investments, including currency fluctuations, less liquid trading markets, greater price volatility, political and economic instability, less publicly available information, and changes in tax or currency laws or monetary policy. These risks are likely to be greater for emerging markets than in developed markets.

Investment Definitions

The Russell 1000® Growth Index is an unmanaged index that measures the performance of those Russell 1000 companies with higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth values. Index results assume the reinvestment of all capital gain and dividend distributions. An investment cannot be made directly into an index.

The P/E Ratio (price-to-earnings) denotes the weighted average of all the P/Es of the securities in the Fund's portfolio. The P/B Ratio (price-to-book) is the weighted average of all the P/Bs of the securities in the Fund's portfolio. Return on Equity (ROE) is the weighted average of all the ROEs of the securities in the Fund's portfolio. ROE is calculated by dividing net income by book value. Standard deviation measures how widely dispersed a fund's returns have been over a specified period of time. A high standard deviation indicates that the range is wide, implying greater potential for volatility. Beta is a measure of historical volatility relative to an appropriate index (benchmark) based on its investment objective. A beta greater than 1.00 indicates volatility greater than the benchmark's. Alpha measures a fund's risk-adjusted performance and is expressed as an annualized percentage. R-Squared measures the percentage of a fund's movements that result from movements in the index. The Sharpe Ratio shown is calculated for the past 36-month period by dividing annualized excess returns by annualized standard deviation. The Annual Turnover Rate is as of the most recent annual shareholder report. Upside/Downside Market Capture measures a manager's performance in up/down markets relative to the Fund's benchmark.
