This fund provides long-term capital appreciation potential by focusing on established growth companies with proven performance records. These companies are typically financially sound and represent a wide variety of industries. To enhance return potential, the fund also has the ability to invest in foreign companies.

Because of the higher valuations/lower dividend yields of growth stocks, fund prices could decline further in down markets than non-growth-focused funds. Any foreign holdings would be subject to risks inherent in non-U.S. securities, including currency fluctuations.
* Annually we evaluate the standard deviation of each US mutual fund listed and its resulting placement within specific risk/return categories.

Methodology: If a fund is at least 5 year old, it is generally placed in risk/return categories based on the standard deviation of its performance for the longest period of its calendar year returns; the longest time period used for analysis is 10 years (regardless of the fund's inception). If a fund is less than 5 years old, we generally use the fund's primary benchmark disclosed in its prospectus as a proxy and follow the same process of using 10-year standard deviation of the benchmark, or longest time period available. The firm at its sole discretion may show a fund in a higher risk category based on qualitative or other factors that may differ from this methodology.
