Optimum Small-Mid Cap Value Instl

The investment seeks long-term growth of capital.
Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities of small- and mid-market capitalization companies. For purposes of this fund, small-market capitalization companies are those companies whose market capitalization is similar to the market capitalization of companies in the Russell 2000® Value Index. The fund intends to invest primarily in common stocks of U.S. companies, but it may also invest in other securities that the sub-advisors believe provide opportunities for capital growth.
