Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term growth of capital and future income rather than current income. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objectives by investing at least 80% of its net assets under normal circumstances in equity securities- such as common and preferred stocks. It invests primarily in a limited number of large- and medium-sized companies (meaning companies with a market capitalization of $2 billion or more) that the portfolio manager believes have above-average growth histories and/or growth potential.
