• Small Cap Fund

Fund Objective

The Small Cap Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation.

Investment Strategies

The fund invests primarily in a diversified mix of common stocks of U.S. small cap companies that are believed to be undervalued by various measures and offer sound prospects for capital appreciation. The subadviser employs a value-oriented investment approach in selecting stocks, using proprietary fundamental research to identify securities of issuers the subadviser believes have attractive valuations. The subadviser focuses on companies with a record of above average rates of profitability that sell at a discount relative to the overall small cap market.
