An investor should consider the Funds’ investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money. This and other important information may be found in the Funds' prospectus. To obtain a prospectus, please call 800-432-7856 or visit Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

In addition to stocks of large companies, the Funds invest in small- and mid-sized companies that are generally less liquid and more volatile than large companies. The Mid Cap Value and Value Plus Funds invest in a smaller number of stocks (generally 30 to 60 and 40 to 70, respectively) than the average mutual fund. The performance of these holdings generally will increase the volatility of the Funds’ returns. 

Value investments are subject to the risk that their intrinsic value may not be recognized by the broad market.
