Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 65% of its assets in equity securities of large market capitalization companies. The fund invests in a select group of large market capitalization growth companies believed to be undervalued relative to their future growth potential. The investment strategy emphasizes companies the subadviser believes to have a sustainable competitive advantage, strong management and low financial risk, and to be able to grow over market cycles. Although the fund invests primarily in U.S. companies, it may invest in foreign securities and depositary receipts.
