Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of small capitalization companies. The Fund considers a company to be a small capitalization company if it has a market capitalization (stock market worth), at the time of investment, similar to the market capitalizations of the companies in the Russell 2000® Index. The capitalization range of that index is subject to change over time due to market activity or changes in the composition of the index. As of March 31, 2024, the market capitalizations of the companies in the Russell 2000 Index ranged from $11.7 million to $58.4 billion. The Fund may also invest in micro-capitalization and mid-capitalization companies.
Most of the assets of the Fund are invested in U.S. common stocks the sub-advisor, Stephens Investment Management Group, LLC (“SIMG”), believes have clear indicators of future earnings growth, or that demonstrate other potential for growth of capital. The Fund may invest in other securities, including master limited partnerships (“MLPs”) and U.S. dollar-denominated foreign stock traded on U.S. exchanges. In selecting companies for the Fund, SIMG primarily employs fundamental research with a focus on earnings growth. SIMG will sell a security when appropriate and consistent with the Fund’s investment objectives and policies.
Although the Fund seeks investments across a number of sectors, from time to time, the Fund may have significant positions in particular sectors, including the Information Technology sector. However, as the sector composition of the Fund’s portfolio changes over time, the Fund’s exposure to the Information Technology sector may be lower at a future date, and the Fund’s exposure to other market sectors may be higher.
The Fund may also invest cash balances in other investment companies, including a government money market fund advised by the Manager, with respect to which the Manager receives a management fee. The Fund may seek to earn additional income by lending its securities to certain qualified broker-dealers and institutions.
