Fund Overview

Objective

The fund's investment objective is to seek total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation.

Key Differentiators

  • Focuses on companies with high relative dividend yields and/or long-term capital appreciation potential
  • Blends fundamental first-hand research of each security and quantitative data analysis of over 5,000 securities in order to determine whether a stock’s valuation properly reflects a company’s growth and return prospects as well as its risks

Important Risk Considerations

  • The fund may not achieve its objective and/or you could lose money on your investment in the fund.

  • Stock markets and investments in individual stocks are volatile and can decline significantly in response to issuer, market, economic, industry, political, regulatory, geopolitical, and other conditions.

  • Investments in foreign markets can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, industry, political, regulatory, geopolitical, or other conditions.

  • Real estate-related investments can be volatile because of general, regional, and local economic conditions, fluctuations in interest rates and property tax rates; shifts in zoning laws, environmental regulation and other governmental actions; increased operation expenses; lack of availability of mortgage funds; losses due to natural disasters; changes in property values and rental rates; overbuilding; losses due to casualty or condemnation, cash flows; and other factors.

  • Please see the prospectus for further information on these and other risk considerations.
