  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation.
Under normal circumstances the Portfolio invests at least 80% of its assets primarily in common stocks of small companies. These companies tend to be unseasoned but are considered by the Portfolio's advisors to have superior growth potential. Also, these companies often provide little or no dividend income. It uses multiple investment advisors.
  Morningstar Category: Small Growth
Small-growth portfolios focus on faster-growing companies whose shares are at the lower end of the market-capitalization range. These portfolios tend to favor companies in up-and-coming industries or young firms in their early growth stages. Because these businesses are fast-growing and often richly valued, their stocks tend to be volatile. Stocks in the bottom 10% of the capitalization of the U.S. equity market are defined as small 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). 
  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.
