Strategy And Objective

Long-term capital appreciation. The Fund is not a passively managed index fund. The Fund pursues its objective by seeking to enhance its performance over that of its benchmark index by 1) changing the relative weighting in the Funds portfolio of growth versus value style securities in the index (style tilt) and 2) utilizing computer-aided, quantitative analysis of valuation, growth, dividend yield, industry, and other factors to attempt to compensate for the exclusion of certain index securities due to the Funds values-based screening policies. In implementing its investment strategies, the Fund applies a set of values-based screens to use its best efforts to avoid investing in companies that are determined by Crossmark, pursuant to screening guidelines approved by the Funds Board of Directors, to be: (1) materially involved in the production, distribution, retail, supply or licensing of alcohol or related products; (2) materially involved in the production, distribution, retail, supply or licensing of tobacco or related products (to include vaping and other alternative smoking products); (3) materially involved in gambling (to include the manufacture, distribution and operation of facilities and equipment whose intended use is gambling); (4) directly participating in providing abortions and/or the production of drugs marketed with the primary intent to terminate pregnancy; (5) directly engaged in scientific research using stem cells derived from human embryos, fetal tissue or human embryo cloning techniques; (6) directly involved in the production, distribution or retail of adult entertainment; or (7) directly involved in the production, distribution, retail, supply or licensing of psychoactive recreational cannabis or derivative products. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its assets in the securities of companies included in the Funds benchmark.The Funds benchmark index is a widely recognized broad-based small-mid cap index and is the same index identified in the Average Annual Total Returns table below. The FunDs investments are allocated in an attempt to match the characteristics of a blend of the benchmark and varied weightings from time to time of two indices that are subcomponents of the benchmark: a small-mid cap growth index and a small-mid cap value index. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its assets in the securities of small- to mid-cap companies.* Small- to mid-cap companies are defined by the market capitalization range of the Funds benchmark index from time to time. For the Funds current benchmark index, this market capitalization range, as of June 30, 2020, is $77.276 million to $14.009 billion. The companies included in the benchmark index represent a broad spectrum of the U.S. economy and are generally U.S. issuers. Fund investments may also include other investment companies and real estate investment trusts. In addition to its investment in securities of companies included in the benchmark index, the Fund may invest up to 5% of its total assets in securities of non-U.S. issuers not generally included in the benchmark index. Also, the Fund may not invest more than 2% of its total assets in securities of companies in emerging market countries. In the event of changes to the companies included in the benchmark index, changes in the portfolio managers evaluation of the relative performance of growth versus value style securities, or the development of a material misweighting, the portfolio managers will rebalance the portfolio in an attempt to match the characteristics of a blend of its benchmark index and varied weightings from time to time of two indices that are subcomponents of the benchmark: a small-mid cap growth index and a small-mid cap value index. Because the Fund uses its best efforts to avoid investments in companies that do not pass the values-based screening criteria, it will divest itself, in a timely manner, of securities that are subsequently added to the list of prohibited securities.
