This fund provides the long-term growth potential of well-managed medium-sized companies with attractive growth prospects. These companies have successfully weathered their start-up years, offer proven products and services, have experienced management teams, and can often finance their own growth.

Earnings of mid-caps tend to fluctuate more than those of larger firms, and small-caps could offer greater return potential. The fund invests in growth stocks, which have higher valuations and lower dividend yields than stocks of slower-growth or cyclical firms.
* 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.
