Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets in equity securities of medium market capitalization companies. It invests in a select group of medium market capitalization growth companies believed by the subadviser to be undervalued relative to their future growth potential. Although the fund invests primarily in U.S. companies, it may invest in foreign securities and depositary receipts.
