Overview

Growth Through Flexibility

The Fund has the flexibility to look for growth anywhere. The team searches for companies of all sizes, regardless of geography or sector, that exhibit early signs of earnings momentum.

Differentiated by Discipline

While many growth funds focus exclusively on upside potential, the Fund’s unique valuation discipline also factors in loss potential to help manage risk.

Performance Through Active Management

The Fund’s highly active approach has helped it deliver strong returns in a variety of market environments. Unlike passive approaches, this seeks to provide investors with the potential for market-beating returns.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. • Mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. • Different investment styles may go in and out of favor, which may cause the Fund to underperform the broader stock market. • To the extent the Fund focuses on one or more sectors, the Fund may be subject to increased volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur. • Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political, economic and regulatory developments. • The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase its transaction costs and an investor's tax liability.
