Fund Description

The fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities. It will generally invest in larger-sized companies using a quantitative model that combines fundamental measures of a stock's value and growth potential. To measure value, the managers may use ratios of stock price-to-earnings and stock price-to-cash flow, among others. To measure growth, the managers may use the rate of growth of a company's earnings and cash flow and changes in its earnings estimates, as well as other factors. The managers also take ESG factors into account in making investment decisions.
