Fund Objectives

The Fund�s primary purpose is to seek long-term capital growth primarily from investment in mid-capitalization and large capitalization U.S. equity securities. The Fund may also invest in non-U.S. equity securities. The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in fixed income securities, including debt securities of corporations. This may include restructured or lower-rated debt securities. Depending on prevailing market conditions, at the discretion of the portfolio manager the Fund may temporarily invest most or all of its assets in cash or fixed income securities. Any proposed change in the fundamental investment objectives of the Fund must be approved by a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of security holders held for that reason.
