Strategy And Objective

The fund has an investment objective of seeking to provide capital appreciation. As a secondary goal, the fund also seeks to provide current income. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in U.S.-traded equity securities of small-capitalization companies. U.S.-traded equity securities may include American Depositary Receipts (ADRs). As of the date of this prospectus, the fund s subadviser considers small-capitalization companies for this purpose to be those companies that, at the time of initial purchase, have market capitalizations generally within the range of companies included in the Russell 2000Index on a rolling three-year basis. On this basis, as of December 31, 2020, the total market capitalization range of companies included in the Russell 2000Index over the past three years was $2.42 million to $16.95 billion. As a result of its investment strategy, the fund may focus its investments in one or more sectors.
