The “Sweet Spot”
We believe that high quality, market-leading mid-cap companies in the $2 to $10 billion market-cap range represent a sweet spot in the equity market. Mid-cap companies usually have relatively mature operations, strong brands, professional management, solid distribution, and easy access to financing relative to small-cap companies. At the same time, mid-cap companies are often more focused and nimble and commonly have more growth potential than large-cap companies.
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. • 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. • Integration of environmental, social, and/or governance (ESG) factors into the investment process may not work as intended.
