Investment Objective

The Fund seeks growth of capital through investment in stocks believed to offer opportunities for potential capital appreciation and which meet the Fund's investment criteria, including financial, sustainability and social responsibility factors.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests primarily in the common stocks of U.S. large-cap companies, although it may have other investments, including foreign stocks and mid-cap stocks. The Fund defines large-cap companies as those whose market capitalization falls within the range of the S&P 500 Index. Sub-advisor Atlanta Capital looks for established companies with a history of steady earnings growth and selects companies based on its opinion that the company has the ability to sustain growth through high profitability and that the stock is favorably priced with respect to those growth expectations. The Fund seeks to invest in companies and other enterprises that demonstrate positive environmental, social and governance performance as they address corporate responsibility and sustainability challenges.

Investment Risk

Investment in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal invested. You could lose money on your investment in the Fund or the Fund could underperform because of the following risks: the market prices of stocks held by the Fund may fall; individual investments of the Fund may not perform as expected; and/or the Fund's portfolio management practices may not achieve the desired result. In addition, large-cap companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges, such as changes in technology, and also may not be able to attain the high growth rate of successful smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.

Standard Deviation is a measure of a fund's risk. A standard deviation of 1 means a fund can be expected to produce an annual return that is +/-1% of its average annual return 66% of the time.
Alpha is a measure of the difference between a fund's actual returns and its expected performance, given its level of risk as measured by beta.
Beta is a measure of portfolio risk relative to the market or benchmark. A portfolio beta of 1.0 indicates a risk level equal to that of the fund's benchmark.
Excess Return is return in excess of the risk-free rate or in excess of a benchmark.
R Squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund's movements that can be explained by movements in its benchmark index.
Tracking Error is the difference in the return earned by a portfolio and the return earned by the benchmark against which the portfolio is constructed.
Information Ratio is a measure of the consistency of excess return of a mutual fund as compared to its benchmark.
Sharpe Ratio is used to measure risk-adjusted performance. It is calculated by using standard deviation and return in excess of the benchmark to determine reward per unit of risk.
