The fund invests primarily in the common stock of large-sized U.S. companies. The investment adviser's investment strategy utilizes a large-cap growth approach by selecting most of its investments from companies listed in the Russell 1000® Growth Index. The fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) are invested in large-cap investments.
