Investment Objective The investment seeks to track a benchmark index that measures the investment return of small- and mid-capitalization stocks. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of S&P Completion Index- a broadly diversified index of stocks of small and mid-size U.S. companies. It invests by sampling the index- meaning that it holds a broadly diversified collection of securities that- in the aggregate- approximates the full index in terms of key characteristics. These characteristics include industry weightings and market capitalization- as well as certain financial measures- such as price/earnings ratio and dividend yield.
