  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital.
The fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio consisting primarily of common stock of U.S. companies that fund management believes have exhibited above-average growth rates in earnings over the long-term. In other words, fund management tries to choose investments that will increase in value over the long term. The fund will generally invest at least 65% of its total assets in common stock, convertible preferred stock, securities convertible into common stock, and rights to subscribe to common stock.
  Morningstar Category: Large Growth
Large-growth portfolios invest primarily in big U.S. companies that are projected to grow faster than other large-cap stocks. Stocks in the top 70% of the capitalization of the U.S. equity market are defined as large cap. Growth is defined based on fast growth (high growth rates for earnings, sales, book value, and cash flow) and high valuations (high price ratios and low dividend yields). Most of these portfolios focus on companies in rapidly expanding industries. 
  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.
