Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term, tax-efficient capital appreciation. Under normal conditions, the Aggressive Growth Fund invests at least 65% of its total assets in equity securities of domestic issuers listed on a nationally recognized securities exchange or traded on the NASDAQ System. It invests, in general, in markets and industries with strong growth potential, focusing primarily on the market leaders in these areas as these companies often garner a disproportionate share of the positive financial returns.
