Fund Description

The fund invests substantially in the equity securities of companies that are leaders in their industries. Although it normally invests substantially in the equity securities (principally common stocks) of U.S.-based large and medium market capitalization companies, the fund may invest in companies in new and emerging industries where growth is expected to be above average and may invest up to 25% of its assets in smaller companies.
