Principal Investment Strategies and Risks of Investing in the Fund
The fund seeks long-term growth of capital by investing in mid-cap stocks. The fund uses a disciplined, risk-controlled investment approach with a multi-tiered quantitative model. Securities are selected on the basis of quantitative algorithms that focus on specific criteria for different types of stocks. Valuation criteria, such as price/earnings and price/book ratios, are the most important for slow-growing companies. Indicators of future growth such as estimate revisions are the most important for rapidly growing firms. Research focuses on refining quantitative models, risk controls, and trading efficiency.
The fund's total return will fluctuate over a wide range, consistent with its reliance on investing in stocks. Investors in the fund should have a long-term investment horizon. The fund is not a complete investment program and returns may lag the returns of a balanced portfolio with comparable risk. The fund's emphasis on mid-cap stocks may cause it to lag the returns of the broad U.S. stock market. The fund's strategy for outperforming its benchmark may cause it to lag the benchmark as the strategy relies on predictions and incurring trading costs through security turnover. Your investment in the fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the F.D.I.C. or any other government entity. It is possible to lose money investing in the fund and returns may not keep pace with inflation.

Prior to July 2002, actual historical performance data has been adjusted for fees and/or designs for multiple manager funds that are specific to the FRS. Beta is the average percent change in the fund's return if there is a 1% change in the benchmark's return. Tracking Error is the standard deviation of the statistically unexplained difference between the fund's return and the benchmark return. Performance alarms are a statistical measure of underperformance relative to the benchmark. Multiple alarms may imply a higher risk of future underperformance.
