Strategy, Benefits, Results

Strategy

We use fundamental, bottom-up research to find innovative, fast-growing companies that meet our criteria of

  • Growth. We focus on companies with the potential to produce sustainable earnings and cash-flow growth.
  • Quality. We seek high-quality companies with strong management teams and financial strength.
  • Valuation. We assess whether the growth opportunity is already reflected in the stock price.

Benefits

  • Participate in trends moving markets. Invest in innovative sectors—technology, medicine, global communications—that we believe are poised for long-term growth.
  • Tenured and experienced. Portfolio management team has a combined 56 years of industry experience.
  • Distinct research structure. Our investment professionals are organized into collaborative sector teams.

Investing in the Fund

What Are the Risks?
  • All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • Stocks historically have outperformed other asset classes over the long term, but tend to fluctuate more dramatically over the short term.
  • Investments in fast-growing industries like the technology and healthcare sectors (which have historically been volatile) could result in increased price fluctuation, especially over the short term, due to the rapid pace of product change and development and changes in government regulation of companies emphasizing scientific or technological advancement or regulatory approval for new drugs and medical instruments.
  • The fund may also invest in small- and mid-capitalization companies, which can be particularly sensitive to changing economic conditions, and their prospects for growth are less certain than those of larger, more established companies.
  • These and other risks are described more fully in the fund’s prospectus.

Minimum Investment

$1,000.00
