The investment seeks capital appreciation; no consideration is given to income.
The fund seeks to achieve its objective by normally investing at least 65% of its assets in common stocks of small-cap companies with market capitalizations comparable to those of companies included in the Russell 2000 Index (between $169 million to $4 billion as of June 30, 2014). The portfolio managers seek to invest in U.S. small-cap equities which they believe are benefiting from change not yet fully reflected in the market.
