Fund Focus

The Skyline Special Equities Portfolio invests primarily in the common stocks of small-capitalization U.S. companies. Skyline Asset Management, L.P. ("Skyline") generally considers a company to be a "small-capitalization" company if its outstanding shares have an aggregate market value of less than $2.5 billion at the time of purchase. The Fund emphasizes investments in companies that have below-average valuations and above-average earnings growth prospects. The Fund may also invest in stocks that are depressed due to current problems at the company, but for which Skyline has an expectation that the company's operations will improve.

Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowing for investment purposes, in equity securities.

Where This Fund May Fit As Part Of Your Asset Allocation

The Skyline Special Equities Portfolio may be appropriate for your overall investment allocation if you are:

  • Looking to gain exposure to small-cap companies
  • Diversifying equity investments that may be primarily held in large-cap companies
  • Seeking exposure to value-oriented investments
  • Willing to accept short-term volatility of returns

A short-term redemption fee of 2% will be charged on redemption of fund shares held for 30 days or less.

The Fund's investment manager has contractually agreed, through at least May 1, 2014, to limit Fund operating expenses. The net expense ratio reflects this limitation, while the gross expense ratio does not. Please refer to the Fund's prospectus for additional information on the Fund's expenses.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each 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. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metric.

Morningstar Rating is for the share class indicated only (see ticker), other share classes may have different performance characteristics. The Ranking may reflect the waiver of all or a portion of the fund's fees. Without such waiver, the Rankings may have been lower. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
