Strategy And Objective

The Fund seeks monthly investment results, before fees and expenses, of 200% of the calendar month performance of the Index. The Fund does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective for a period of time different than a full calendar month. The Fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in securities of the Index, exchange-traded funds("ETFs") that track the Index and other financial instruments that provide monthly exposure to the Index or to ETFs that track the Index. The financial instruments in which the Fund most commonly invests are swap contracts which are intended to produce economically leveraged investment results. On a day-to-day basis, the Fund is expected to hold money market funds, deposit accounts with institutions with high quality credit ratings, and/or short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements. The Index measures the performance of approximately 2,000 small-capitalization companies in the Russell 3000 Index, based on a combination of their market capitalization and current index membership. As of October 31, 2019, the Index consisted of 1,994 holdings, which had an average market capitalization of $2.3 billion, total market capitalizations ranging from $15.1 million to $7 billion and were concentrated in the financial services, health care, and industrials sectors.The components of the Index and the percentages represented by various sectors in the Index may change over time. The Fund will concentrate its investment in a particular industry or group of industries (i.e., hold 25% or more of its total assets in the stocks of a particular industry or group of industries) to approximately the same extent as the Index isso concentrated.The Fund may invest in the securities of the Index, an ETF that tracks the Index, or utilize derivatives such as swaps on the Index, swaps on an ETF that tracks the Index or a substantially similar index as the Fund, or futures contracts to obtain leveraged exposure to the securities or a representative sample of the securities in the Index that have aggregate characteristics similar to those of the Index. Derivatives are financial instruments that derive value from the underlying reference asset or assets, such as stocks, bonds, or funds (including ETFs), interest rates or indexes. Certain of the derivative instruments in which the Fund may invest may be traded in the over-the-counter market, which generally provides for less transparency than exchange-traded derivative instruments. The Fund seeks to remain fully invested at all times consistent with its stated investment objective.
