Strategy And Objective

The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation. Below is a summary of the principal investment strategies of the Fund. The Fund will, under normal circumstances, invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of small capitalization companies, which we define as companies with market capitalizations within or below the range of the Russell 2000 Index at the time of purchase. The highest market capitalization of any company in the Russell 2000 ® Index was approximately $7.3 billion as of December 31, 2019, and is expected to change frequently. If the market capitalization of a company held by the Fund moves outside this range, the Fund may, but is not required to, sell the securities. The Fund may invest in U.S. and foreign, including emerging markets, companies. Foreign companies may be traded on U.S. or non-U.S. securities exchanges, may be denominated in the U.S. Dollar or other currencies, and may include American Depositary Receipts ( ADRs ). The Fund may also invest in micro-capitalization companies. The Fund s investment portfolio is managed by two sub-advisers: Lord, Abbett & Co. LLC ( Lord Abbett ) and Peregrine Capital Management, LLC ( Peregrine ) (each, a Sub-Adviser, and collectively, the Sub-Advisers ). The Sub-Advisers seek to invest in securities of issuers with above average potential for growth. Specifically, Lord Abbett seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing principally in equity securities of micro-capitalization companies that, at the time of purchase, are similar in size to companies in the Russell Microcap ® Index or have a market capitalization that is under $1 billion. Peregrine seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in small-capitalization companies that are similar in size to issuers included in the Russell 2000 Index. GWCM maintains a strategic asset allocation of the Fund s assets with each Sub-Adviser and reviews the asset allocations on a quarterly basis, or more frequently as deemed necessary. As of the date of this Prospectus, the target asset allocation is a 15% allocation of the Fund s assets to Lord Abbett and a 85% allocation of the Fund s assets to Peregrine. Notwithstanding these target allocations, GWCM may change the asset allocations at any time and without shareholder notice or approval.
