Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, the Fund’s assets will be invested primarily in a portfolio of common stocks of companies with market capitalizations, at the time of purchase, within the capitalization range of the companies comprising the Russell 3000® Growth Index, which as of December 31,  2023 was between $19.7 million and $3.0 trillion. The Adviser seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in established and emerging companies. The Adviser emphasizes a bottom-up stock selection process, seeking attractive investments on an individual company basis. In selecting securities for investment, the Adviser typically invests in unique companies it believes have sustainable competitive advantages with above average business visibility, the ability to deploy capital at high rates of return, strong balance sheets and an attractive risk/reward. The Fund may invest in other types of equity securities. The Fund may, but it is not required to, use derivative instruments as discussed herein. These derivative instruments will be counted
toward the Fund’s exposure in the types of securities listed herein to the extent they have economic characteristics similar to such securities. The Adviser typically focuses a significant portion of the Fund’s investments in a limited number of issuers, which may be in the same industry, sector or geographic region.
The Adviser actively integrates sustainability into the investment process by using environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors as a lens for additional fundamental research, which can contribute to investment decision-making. The Adviser seeks to understand how environmental and social initiatives within companies can create value by strengthening durable competitive advantages, creating growth opportunities, driving profitability and/or aligning with secular growth trends. The Adviser generally engages with company management teams to discuss their ESG practices, with the aim of identifying how sustainability themes present opportunities and risks that can be material to the value of the security over the long-term. Other aspects of the investment process include a proprietary, systematic evaluation of governance policies, specifically focusing on compensation alignment on long-term value creation. Although consideration of ESG factors is incorporated into  the investment process, it is only one of many tools the Adviser utilizes to make investment decisions.
The Fund may invest up to 25% of its net assets in foreign securities, including emerging market securities and securities classified as American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”), American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) or Global Depositary Shares (“GDSs”), foreign U.S. dollar-denominated securities that are traded on a U.S. exchange or local shares of non-U.S. issuers. The Fund may invest in privately placed and restricted securities.
