  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital.
The fund invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of equity securities of small- to mid-capitalization U.S. companies. It invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities of small- to mid-capitalization companies. For purposes of this policy, small- to mid-capitalization companies are those that, at the time of investment, fall within the capitalization range between the smallest company in the Russell 2500® Value Index and the greater of $5 billion or the market capitalization of the largest company in the Russell 2500® Value Index.
  Morningstar Category: Small Value
Small-value portfolios invest in small U.S. companies with valuations and growth rates below other small-cap peers. Stocks in the bottom 10% of the capitalization of the U.S. equity market are defined as small cap. Value is defined based on low valuations (low price ratios and high dividend yields) and slow growth (low growth rates for earnings, sales, book value, and cash flow). 
  Investment Risks
Small Cap Funds: Smaller companies typically have higher risk of failure, and are not as well established as larger blue-chip companies. Historically, the smaller company stocks have experienced a greater degree of market volatility than the overall market average.
