Fund highlights

    • Emphasizes undervalued companies that are likely to exceed earnings expectations while maintaining characteristics similar to the S&P 500 Index.
    • Implements a disciplined quantitatively based strategy grounded in fundamental research; companies are evaluated based on factors related to valuation, earnings, and trade momentum.
    • Consistently seeks to add value relative to the benchmark while actively managing portfolio risk using risk modeling and optimization tools.
    • Consistency and objectivity of research: Quantitative investment process forms the foundation of the strategy and provides a systematic way to assess relative valuation, operational and financial performance, and stock price behavior.
    • Specialized tools enable comprehensive management of risk and return trade-offs: The team's experience using optimization and risk management tools helps to manage potential volatility.
    • Experienced portfolio craftsmanship: While quantitative models provide a reliable foundation for stock selection, the team's qualitative overlay sheds light on additional information that may not be reflected in model ranks or that may be difficult to measure such as information related to corporate actions, mergers, earnings announcements, and unusual price behavior.

    Figures quoted represent past performance, which is no guarantee of future results, and do not reflect taxes that a shareholder may pay on a fund. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted and assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

    Net asset value (NAV) is the value of one share of the fund excluding any sales charges.

    R6 Class shares are sold without a front-end sales charge or contingent deferred sales charge.

    Does not include sales charges and assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. If sales charges were included, returns would be lower.

    Stock values fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions. The use of derivatives may reduce returns and/or increase volatility. Consult the fund's prospectus for additional information on these and other risks.
