The Fund seeks total return through a combination of growth and income.
The Fund is classified as non-diversified and may be more susceptible to risk than funds that invest more broadly. In addition REITs may decline from deteriorating economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property, and defaults by borrowers. Small- and mid-cap equities are considered riskier than large-cap equities due to greater potential volatility and less liquidity.
