Fund highlights

    • Seeks to identify companies that are unsustainably cheap or undervalued, with the potential to deliver future earnings improvements in excess of current analysts' expectations.
    • Implements a disciplined quantitatively based strategy grounded in fundamental research; companies are evaluated based on factors related to valuation, earnings and trading momentum.
    • Conducts a qualitative evaluation that considers influences such as management strength, industry and product positioning, and risk profiles to confirm the investment merit of a stock.
    • 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.

    Three-month and year-to-date returns are not annualized.

    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. Certain investment strategies tend to increase the total risk of an investment (relative to the broader market). This fund is exposed to foreign investment risk. Consult the fund's prospectus for additional information on these and other risks.
