Considering the risks: A principal risk of investing in the Fund is the risk that the value of equity securities may decline. While stocks have historically outperformed other asset classes over the long term, they tend to fluctuate over the short term as a result of factors affecting the individual companies, industries or the securities market as a whole. Securities with different characteristics tend to shift in and out of favor depending upon market and economic conditions. These and other risk considerations are discussed in the Fund's prospectus and summary prospectus.

The Fund's investments are subject to changes in general economic conditions, general market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investment in securities markets. Investment markets can be volatile and prices of investments can change substantially due to various factors including, but not limited to, economic growth or recession, changes in interest rates, changes in the actual or perceived creditworthiness of issuers, and general market liquidity. The Fund is subject to the risk that geopolitical events will disrupt securities markets and adversely affect global economies and markets. Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, or other events could have a significant impact on the Fund and its investments.

Fund Objective

Long-term growth of capital and future income rather than current income.

Investment Strategy

The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objectives by investing in equity securities of U.S. companies, such as common and preferred stocks. A U.S. company is a company that generates at least 50% of its revenues or profits from business activities in the U.S., has at least 50% of its assets situated in the U.S., or has the principal trading market for its securities in the U.S. The portfolio manager selects equity securities from a number of industries based on the merits of individual companies. In seeking to satisfy the Fund’s investment objective with respect to future income, the portfolio manager will also consider companies that have the potential to pay dividends in the future.
