Investment Objective

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


The Fund is sub-advised by five complementary asset managers, seeking stocks with:

  • Barrow: Below-market valuations and above-market free cash flow yield.
  • Brandywine Global: Low valuations and attractive price momentum, combining quantitative analysis with fundamental insights.
  • DRZ: Minimum dividend yield of 1%, attractive relative valuation and imminent fundamental catalyst.
  • H&W: Sustainable cash flows and strong balance sheets, undervalued relative to tangible assets and long-term normal earnings power.
  • Newton: Valuations in the bottom 40%; realizable earnings projections and cash flow; identifiable catalyst for change.


The multi-manager approach of the Fund enhances the diversification that can help lessen portfolio volatility in the long term.

  • Its bottom-up portfolio construction is well diversified at the security, industry and stock levels.
  • The primary emphasis is on finding undervalued securities with above-average earnings growth expectations.

Investing in small-capitalization stocks may involve greater volatility and lower liquidity than larger company stocks. 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. To the extent the Fund invests more heavily in particular sectors, its performance will be sensitive to factors affecting those sectors. Financial sector companies are heavily regulated and particularly sensitive to interest rate fluctuations. The Fund's incorporation of environmental, social and/or governance (ESG) considerations in its investment strategy may cause it to underperform funds that do not incorporate these considerations. The use of futures contracts for cash management may subject the Fund to losing more money than invested. The Fund participates in a securities lending program. 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.
