Why invest in this Fund?

The fund seeks to match the total return of the Standard & Poor's 500 Composite Stock Price Index (the 'Index'). To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 95% of its assets in common stocks included in the Index.

The fund attempts to have a correlation between its performance and that of the S&P 500 Index of at least .95, before expenses. A correlation of 1.00 would mean that the fund and the S&P 500 Index were perfectly correlated.

Morningstar Rating™ as of September 30, 2019 for the Class I class shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Overall rating for the Large Blend category. Fund ratings are out of 5 Stars: Overall 4 Stars (1222 funds rated); 3 Yrs. 4 Stars (1222 funds rated); 5 Yrs. 4 Stars (1086 funds rated); 10 Yrs. 4 Stars (825 funds rated). The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products with at least a 3-year history.

Managed products; including open-end mutual funds, closed-end funds and exchange-traded funds; are considered a single population for comparative purposes. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 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. ©2018 Morningstar, Inc.

        LIPPER CLASSIFICATION S&P 500 Index Funds


        Lipper Category returns and rankings are calculated by Lipper Inc., a Reuters Company, which is a nationally recognized organization that compares the performance of mutual funds with similar investment objectives. The Category returns represent the average performance of included funds, while rankings compare an individual fund's returns to those of the other funds in its category. Both are based on total return performance, with capital gains and dividends reinvested, with annual operating expenses deducted, but without including front or back-end sales charges. Rankings begin with the actual share class inception. Rankings are relative to a peer group and do not necessarily mean that the fund had high total returns. Rankings do not reflect sales loads

        Equities are subject to market, market sector, market liquidity, issuer, and investment style risks to varying degrees.

        The fund uses an indexing strategy. It does not attempt to manage market volatility, use defensive strategies or reduce the effects of any long-term periods of poor stock performance.
