Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the Fund’s net assets (plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) are invested in equity securities of small market capitalization U.S. companies. These companies have market capitalizations within the market capitalization range of the companies in the Russell 2000® Index at the time of investment. As of December 31, 2023, the Russell 2000® Index consisted of companies with market capitalizations
of $19.5 million to $15 billion. To a lesser extent, the Fund may invest in mid-capitalization and micro-capitalization companies. The Fund’s investments principally include common stocks (including dividend-paying stocks) and real estate investment trusts (“REITs”).
The Manager allocates the assets of the Fund among different sub-advisors. The Manager believes that this strategy may help the Fund outperform other investment styles over the longer term while reducing volatility and downside risk. The sub-advisors select stocks that, in their opinion, have most or all of the following characteristics (relative to the Russell 2000® Index):
above-average earnings growth potential,
below-average price to earnings ratio,
below-average price to book value ratio
below-average price to revenue ratio, and
above average free cash flow yield and return on capital.
Except for Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC (“Brandywine Global”), each of the sub-advisors determines the earnings growth prospects of companies based upon a combination of internal and external research using fundamental analysis and considering changing economic trends. The process is research driven and takes into consideration items such as a company’s tangible assets, sustainability of its cash flows, capital intensity and financial leverage.
Brandywine Global employs a primarily quantitative strategy that focuses on buying stocks deemed to be less expensive based on price to earnings ratio or price to book value ratio and that have positive price momentum.
For each sub-advisor, the decision to sell a stock is typically based on the belief that the company is no longer considered undervalued or shows deteriorating fundamentals, or that better investment opportunities exist in other stocks. The Fund may have significant exposure to the Financials sector. However, as the sector composition of the Fund’s portfolio changes over time, the Fund’s exposure to the Financials sector may be lower at a future date, and the Fund’s exposure to other market sectors may be higher.
The Fund may invest cash balances in other investment companies, including a government money market fund advised by the Manager, with respect to which the Manager also receives a management fee. The Fund may purchase and sell equity index futures contracts to gain market exposure on cash balances or reduce market exposure in anticipation of liquidity needs.
Each sub-advisor’s investment processes incorporate the sub-advisor’s environmental, social and/or governance (“ESG”) analysis as a consideration in the assessment of potential portfolio investments for which an ESG score is available or it is feasible to calculate an ESG score. Accordingly, a small portion of the securities in the portions of the Fund managed by  Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC, DePrince, Race & Zollo, Inc., and Newton Investment Management North America, LLC may not receive an ESG score and the sub-advisors may not consider ESG analysis. In addition, as ESG information is just one investment consideration, ESG considerations are not solely determinative in any investment decision made by a sub-advisor. In addition, the sub-advisors do not use ESG considerations to limit, restrict or otherwise exclude companies or sectors from the Fund’s investment universe. A sub-advisor may use ESG research and/or ratings information provided by one or more third parties in performing this analysis and considering ESG risks.
The Fund may seek to earn additional income by lending its securities to certain qualified broker-dealers and institutions.
