  • Overview

Investment Objective

A multi-manager Fund seeking long-term capital appreciation and current income primarily through investments in large market capitalization U.S. stocks.


The Fund is sub-advised by four complementary asset managers that select stocks as follows:

  • Barrow: Bottom-up analysis, with P/E and P/B ratios below the market and dividend yield above the market.

  • Brandywine Global: Substantially undervalued, with dividend-paying companies receiving greater emphasis.

  • H&W: Sustainable cash flows and strong balance sheets, undervalued relative to tangible assets and long-term normal earnings power.

  • MFS: Undervalued, high-quality companies with sustainable, durable franchises, significant free cash flow and strong management teams.


  • The multi-manager approach brings diversification to the Fund and helps protect it from single-manager risk.

  • The Fund’s bottom-up portfolio construction is well diversified at the security, industry and stock levels.

  • The Fund’s assets may also include preferred stocks, convertible securities, American Depositary Receipts and foreign stocks traded on U.S. exchanges.

  • As larger-cap companies return to their historical valuations, the Fund is well positioned to take advantage of this.

Investing in value stocks may limit downside risk over time; however, the Fund may produce more modest gains than riskier stock funds as a trade-off for this potentially lower risk. Investing in foreign securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations and economic and political risks. The use of futures contracts for cash management may subject the Fund to losing more money than invested. Please see the prospectus for a complete discussion of the Fund’s risks. There can be no assurances that the investment objectives of this Fund will be met.
