Description

The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund invests for the long term primarily in equity securities in the form of common stock of small- and mid-sized U.S. growth companies. A small-sized growth company is defined as one having a market capitalization of less than $2.5 billion at the time of purchase. A mid-sized growth company is defined as one having a market capitalization of $2.5 billion to $10 billion at the time of purchase. Because of its long-term approach, the fund could have a significant percentage of assets invested in securities that have appreciated beyond their original market cap ranges. It is non-diversified.
