Overview

Client Commitment

An actively managed U.S. growth strategy that engages in fundamental analysis to identify high-quality companies with strong growth characteristics. The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in a blend of small-, medium- and large-capitalization stocks.

Why Invest in the Fund

    High-Quality Growth Companies

  1. The Fund seeks to invest in companies with impressive management teams, low leverage and a consistent, sustainable record of growth. We believe investing in these high-quality companies can lead to competitive returns with below-average risk over a full market cycle.
  2. Bottom-Up, Meets Top-Down Approach

  3. The team utilizes a multifaceted approach when trying to identify companies for investment. This includes a bottom-up qualitative and quantitative assessment, complemented by our top-down economic and investment outlook.
  4. Experienced Team, Tested Philosophy

  5. Rather than relying on a star manager, the Fund is managed by experienced portfolio managers leveraging a time-tested investment philosophy with additional support from a skilled investment team.

Returns quoted are past performance and do not guarantee future results; current performance may be lower or higher. Investment returns and principal value will vary; there may be a gain or loss when shares are sold.
Maximum Offering Price (MOP) returns include the maximum sales charge of 5.75%. Net Asset Value (NAV) returns exclude this charge, which would have reduced returns.
