  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks reasonable income and capital growth.
The portfolio invests in a broad group of carefully selected securities that the portfolio's adviser believes are reasonably priced, rather than in securities whose prices reflect a premium resulting from their current market popularity. It primarily invests in securities of U.S. issuers. The portfolio may invest up to 15% of its total assets in securities of non-U.S. issuers. It will not invest more than 5% of its total assets in the securities of emerging markets issuers. The portfolio may invest up to 15% of its net assets in REITs.
  Morningstar Category: Large Blend
Large-blend portfolios are fairly representative of the overall US stock market in size, growth rates and price. Stocks in the top 70% of the capitalization of the US equity market are defined as large cap. The blend style is assigned to portfolios where neither growth nor value characteristics predominate. These portfolios tend to invest across the spectrum of US industries, and owing to their broad exposure, the portfolios' returns are often similar to those of the S&P 500 Index. 
  Investment Risks
There are no additional fund specific investment risks (e.g. liquidity risk, currency risk, foreign investment risk, etc.) associated with this fund beyond the normal risks generally associated with investing in a mutual fund.
