The Small/Mid Cap Value Fund invests in small- to medium-cap companies, typically defined as those with a market cap range of $300 million to $10 billion at time of purchase. The Portfolio seeks to own securities that the manager expects to exceed Wall Street expectations that trade at a discount to our proprietary calculations of fair value. The Portfolio typically owns companies exhibiting high-quality characteristics including, but not limited to, strong balance sheets, high returns on equity, competitive advantages, high barriers to entry and above-average profit margins. To help control risks, the Portfolio is generally diversified among companies in a broad range of industries and economic sectors. Typically, no single holding in the Portfolio will exceed 5% of the Portfolio at cost or 8% of the Portfolio measured at market value.
