Strategy And Objective

The TS&W Equity Portfolio (the Fund ) seeks maximum long-term total return, consistent with reasonable risk to principal, by investing in a diversified portfolio of common stocks of relatively large companies. Under normal circumstances, the Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities. This investment policy may be changed by the Fund upon 60 days prior written notice to shareholders. The Fund will generally invest in a diversified portfolio of common stocks of companies that are relatively large in terms of revenues and assets. Although the Fund will primarily draw its holdings from larger, more seasoned or established companies, it may also invest in companies of varying size as measured by assets, sales or market capitalization. The Fund will emphasize common stocks, but may also invest in other types of equity securities. The Fund may invest up to 20% of its total assets in American Depositary Receipts ( ADRs ), which are certificates evidencing ownership of shares of a foreign issuer that are issued by depositary banks and traded on U.S. exchanges. In selecting investments for the Fund, Thompson, Siegel & Walmsley LLC ( TSW or the Adviser ) uses a combination of quantitative screening and qualitative research to seek to identify companies that are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value based on TSW s assessment of a company s future cash flows and catalysts that may reduce the discount within the next several years, and that have an attractive risk/return profile. TSW s analysts perform rigorous fundamental analysis, exploring numerous factors that may affect the outlook for a company. They evaluate publicly available information including sell-side research, company filings, and trade periodicals. The analysts may speak with company management to hear their perspectives and outlook on pertinent business issues. They apply a consistent and disciplined review in a team environment that encourages critical thinking and analysis for each company considered for investment. A portfolio composed of 30-70 stocks is selected as a result of this process. TSW may sell a security if (i) the company s earnings are significantly below market expectations or there is a significant downward revision to the company s estimated earnings, (ii) TSW believes that the company s catalyst is achieved or is no longer valid, (iii) there is a change in the company s risk/return profile, or (iv) TSW identifies a more attractive investment opportunity.
