- Large Cap Growth Fund
The Large Cap Growth Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation.
The Large Cap Growth Fund invests primarily in common stocks and will maintain at least 80% of its assets in large cap stocks. The fund seeks stocks that have low market prices relative to their perceived growth capabilities as estimated based on fundamental analysis of the issuing companies and their prospects. This is sometimes referred to as a "growth" approach. The fund will diversify its holdings among various industries and among companies within those industries.
