Overall Morningstar RatingTM
Small Growth

Morningstar

Overall Morningstar RatingTM is calculated against 606 funds in the Small Growth category.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating,” is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds and separate accounts) with at least a 3-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive five stars, the next 22.5% receive four stars, the next 35%receive three stars, the next 22.5% receive two stars, and the bottom 10%receive one star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% 3-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent 3-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

Class A Shares star ratings do not include any front-end sales load and are intended for those investors who have access to such purchase terms.
Active Share
87 %

Active Share

Active Share measures the percentage of the Fund’s holdings that differ from those of the benchmark. It is calculated by taking the sum of the absolute difference between all of the holdings and weights in the portfolio and those of the benchmark holdings and weights and dividing the results by two.

 100%-80%  80%-60%  60%-40% 40%-20%   20%-0%
Generally, a Fund with an active share of more than 60% is considered actively managed. Active Share is not a performance measurement. A high degree of Active Share does not assure outperformance of a fund relative to its benchmark index. 
 

Overview

Overview

Actively Managed and Sub-Advised by Russell Investments Implementation Services LLC
named interim sub-advisor effective July 30, 2018

Objective

The fund seeks to achieve long-term capital growth by investing primarily in equity securities of small-cap companies.

A WORD ABOUT RISK

The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in stocks of small- and mid-cap companies, which may be subject to more erratic market movements than stocks of larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in growth stocks which may be more volatile than investing in other stocks and may underperform when value investing is in favor. The Fund invests in emerging growth companies which typically have less ability to withstand any changes to their business prospects, may involve greater risk than is customarily associated with established companies and may have heightened liquidity risk and exposure to price movements. The Fund invests in foreign securities, including depositary receipts, such as ADRs, GDRs and EDRs, which carry the associated risks of economic and political instability, market liquidity, currency volatility and differences in accounting standards. The Fund invests in other investment companies such as closed-end funds and ETFs which are subject to substantially the same risks as those associated with the direct ownership of the securities comprising the portfolios; however, the price movements of the investment companies may not track the underlying securities or market index; the value of their shares may be lower than the value of the portfolio securities, and may be illiquid and shareholders will bear, indirectly, the additional expenses of investing in other investment companies. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The advisor engages the sub-advisor to manage the Fund's portfolio; the sub-advisor's judgment may impact the Fund's performance.
