Investment Objective

Investment Objective
The Fund seeks to provide investment results approximating the aggregate price and dividend performance of securities included in the Russell 1000 Value® Index.

Investment Strategy

Investment Strategy
Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest substantially all, and normally at least 80% of its total assets, in the equity securities of the companies that make up the Russell 1000 Value® Index, in weightings that approximate the relative composition of the securities contained in the Russell 1000 Value® Index. The Fund is passively managed, which means it tries to duplicate the investment composition and performance of the Russell 1000 Value® Index while using computer programs and statistical procedures. As a result, the sub-adviser does not use traditional methods of investment management for the Fund, such as selecting securities on the basis of economic, financial and market analysis. Rather, the sub-adviser buys and sells securities in response to changes in the Russell 1000 Value® Index.

Investment Suitability

Investment Suitability

This Fund may be suitable for investors who seek higher, long-term rates of return, can accept significant short-term fluctuations in account value and want to diversify their portfolio by adding a potentially higher return, higher risk option of value stocks. This Fund is subject to value investing risk. This involves the risk that an investment in companies whose securities are believed to be undervalued, relative to their underlying profitability, will not appreciate.

Economic, market, political and other conditions and events can cause the value of equity securities to fluctuate. This description of risks is provided as a summary of the principal investment risks associated with this mutual fund. Refer to the Fund’s prospectus for more detailed risk information.

Price-to-Earnings Ratio — A ratio used to compare the price of a fund’s stocks with their per-share earnings.

Price-to-Book Ratio — A ratio used to compare the book value of a fund’s stocks with their market value.

Weighted Average Market Cap — An index of stocks in which companies that have a greater overall market capitalization are more strongly represented than companies with smaller market capitalizations.

Standard Deviation — Depicts how widely returns varied over a certain period of time. A high standard deviation implies greater volatility and greater risk.

R-squared — Shows the percentage of a fund's performance that is explained by movements in the benchmark index. An R-squared of 100% indicates that all movements of a fund can be explained by movements in the benchmark.

Beta vs. Benchmark — Beta is a measure of a fund's sensitivity to market movements as defined by a fund’s benchmark. A fund with a higher beta relative to the benchmark is more volatile than the benchmark.

Beta vs. S&P 500® Index — Beta is a measure of a fund’s sensitivity to market movements as defined by the S&P 500® Index. A fund with a higher beta relative to the S&P 500® Index is more volatile than the S&P 500® Index.

Sharpe Ratio — A risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better a fund's historical risk-adjusted performance.

Information Ratio — Measures how much a fund outperformed the benchmark per unit of additional risk taken.

Net Asset Value — The Net Asset Value (NAV) is calculated by taking the closing market value of all the investments owned by a fund, plus all other assets such as cash, subtracting all liabilities, then dividing the result (total net assets) by the total number of shares outstanding.

Record Date — The distribution that an investor receives is calculated based on the number of shares that an investor owns on Record Date, typically using the share balance in an investor's account at the close of that day’s business.

Pay/Reinvest Date — The date on which distributions are posted to accounts for reinvestment or paid to shareholders who take distributions in cash.

Dividends — Dividends are income distributions to shareholders out of income from a fund’s investments.

Short-term Capital Gains — Distributions to shareholders derived from the profit of the sale of stocks or bonds held within a fund for a period of one year or less.

Long-term Capital Gains — Distributions to shareholders derived from the profit of the sale of stocks or bonds held within a fund for a period of more than one year.
