Philosophy & Strategy
We emphasize quality companies that we believe offer excellent growth potential at reasonable valuations, focusing on established firms with strong balance sheets and consistent earnings, cash flow and sales, as opposed to start ups or unproven businesses. It is our investment philosophy that holding these higher quality small and mid-cap companies offers the potential to participate in the returns of small and mid-cap stocks, but with less risk.

Objective
Seeks long-term capital growth. Invests at least 80% of the Fund's assets in common stocks of small and mid-capitalization growth companies that the fund management team believes have above average earnings growth potential.

Expense ratio: Gross 1.73%; Net 1.25%

Mutual fund investing involves risk, including the potential loss of principal.

Small and mid‐sized companies may offer the potential for higher returns, but are also subject to greater short‐term price fluctuations than larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in a limited number of securities and, as a result, the Fund's performance may be more volatile than the performance of other funds, holding more securities. At times, the Fund's investments may represent industries or industry sectors that are interrelated or have common risks, making it more susceptible to any economic, political, or regulatory developments or other risks affecting those industries and sectors.
