Investment Objective The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of small-capitalization stocks. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the CRSP US Small Cap Index- a broadly diversified index of stocks of small U.S. companies. The advisor attempts to replicate the target index by investing all- or substantially all- of its assets in the stocks that make up the index- holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index.
