Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in the stock of small, fast-growing companies that Fred Alger Management, Inc. believes offer innovative products, services or technologies to a rapidly-expanding marketplace. Although it may invest without limit in companies of any size, the fund focuses on companies that, at the time of purchase of the securities, have a total market capitalization not exceeding the highest market capitalization of companies included in the Russell 2500 Growth Index, as reported by the index as of the most recent quarter-end.
