Under normal circumstances, the fundinvests at least 80% of net assets, plus the amount of anyborrowings for investment purposes, in common stocks andother equity securities of large US companies that are similarin size to the companies in the Russell 1000 Value Indexand that portfolio management believes are undervalued. Whilethe market capitalization range of the Russell 1000 ValueIndex changes throughout the year, as of June 30, 2016, themarket capitalization range of the Russell 1000 Value Indexwas between approximately 1.48 billion and 515.59 billion.Companies are selected for the fund’s portfolio using theCash Return on Capital Invested (CROCI ) strategy as theprimary factor, among other factors. Portfolio managementwill select stocks from among the largest US companies whichare under CROCI coverage at any given time (while thenumber of companies under CROCI coverage will vary, asof September 30, 2016, approximately 345 companies wereunder CROCI coverage). Approximately 40 companies areidentified from the selection universe for investment, though,at times, the number of stocks held may be higher or lowerthan 40 stocks at the discretion of portfolio management oras a result of corporate actions, mergers or other events.Companies are selected from the following economic sectorsclassified in accordance with the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS): Consumer Discretionary, ConsumerStaples, Energy, Financials, Health Care, Information Technology, Industrials, Materials, Telecommunications Servicesand Utilities.Management process. Portfolio management will select stocksof companies that it believes offer economic value, utilizingthe CROCI strategy as the primary factor, among other factors.The CROCI strategy is an investment process based on aproprietary valuation technique that attempts to understandthe value of a company by converting financial statementdata into a set of economic inputs that are used to calculatea valuation metric called the CROCI Economic Price Earnings Ratio which is comparable across markets, sectors andstocks. The CROCI Economic Price Earnings Ratio seeksto measure the “real” economic value rather than the“accounting” value of a company’s invested capital, and theeconomic returns thereof. Portfolio management believesthat, over time, companies with more favorable financial metrics,including CROCI Economic Price Earnings Ratios, will outperform other companies.In selecting stocks, portfolio management measures economicvalue using the CROCI Economic Price Earnings Ratio andmay adjust this by factors such as stock price volatility, asdetermined by the CROCI Investment Strategy and Valuation Group. The CROCI Investment Strategy and ValuationGroup may provide other CROCI valuation metrics whichportfolio management may use in addition to the CROCI Economic Price Earnings Ratio. All CROCI financial metricsmay be adjusted from time to time. Portfolio managementmay also use factors other than the CROCI strategy in selectinginvestments.The fund’s portfolio is reviewed periodically and adjusted inaccordance with the CROCI strategy’s rules. Portfolio management actively manages portfolio changes in an attempt toreduce market impact and transaction costs and to managethe portfolio with tax efficiency in mind.The following disclosure is added under the “MAIN RISKS” section of the fund’s summary prospectus:CROCI risk. The fund will be managed using the CROCI Investment Process which is based on portfolio management’s belief that, over time, stocks which display morefavorable financial metrics (for example, the CROCI Economic P/E Ratio) as generated by this process may outperform stocks which display less favorable metrics. This premisemay not prove to be correct and prospective investors shouldevaluate this assumption prior to investing in the fund.January 18, 2017PROSTKR-742The calculation of financial metrics used by the fund (suchas, among others, the CROCI Economic P/E Ratio) are determined by the CROCI Investment Strategy and ValuationGroup using publicly available information. This publicly available information is adjusted based on assumptions made bythe CROCI Investment Strategy and Valuation Group that,subsequently, may prove not to have been correct. As financial metrics are calculated using historical information, therecan be no guarantee of the future performance of theCROCI strategy.

intended to be a complete investment program. An investment in the fund is not a deposit of a bank and is notinsured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit InsuranceCorporation or any other governmental agency.Although the fund can invest in stocks of any economicsector (which is comprised of two or more industries), attimes it may emphasize certain sectors, even investingmore than 25% of total assets in any one sector. The fundmay invest up to 20% of net assets in foreign securities.Stock market risk. When stock prices fall, you shouldexpect the value of your investment to fall as well. Stockprices can be hurt by poor management on the part of thestock’s issuer, shrinking product demand and other business risks. These may affect single companies as well asgroups of companies. In addition, movements in financialmarkets may adversely affect a stock’s price, regardless ofhow well the company performs. The market as a wholemay not favor the types of investments the fund makes,which could affect the fund’s ability to sell them at anattractive price. To the extent the fund invests in aparticular capitalization or sector, the fund’s performancemay be affected by the general performance of thatparticular capitalization or sector.Management process. Portfolio management employsa “relative value process” that seeks to identify securitiesthat have strong fundamentals but are at the lower endof their valuation range. Current valuations are comparedto historical valuations to make these determinations.Portfolio management seeks to achieve superior long-termrisk-adjusted returns by:䡲 Exploiting market inefficiencies through a bottom-up,relative value, research-driven approach䡲 Identifying companies with leading market positions thatare selling below long-term valuation levels䡲 Analyzing business models and market and issuer financial factors䡲 Integrating risk management into the stock selectionand portfolio construction processesTypically, portfolio management expects to invest in 60-80holdings, drawing on an analysis of economic outlooksfor various sectors and industries.Security selection risk. The securities in the fund’s portfolio may decline in value. Portfolio management could bewrong in its analysis of industries, companies, economictrends, the relative attractiveness of different securities orother matters.Portfolio management will normally sell a stock when itbelieves the stock’s reward to risk ratio has diminished, thestock’s fundamental factors have changed, other investments offer better opportunities or in the course ofadjusting the fund’s emphasis on a given industry.Value investing risk. As a category, value stocks mayunderperform growth stocks (and the stock market as awhole) over any period of time. In addition, value stocksselected for investment by portfolio management may notperform as anticipated.Derivatives. Portfolio management generally may usefutures contracts, which are a type of derivative (a contractwhose value is based on, for example, indices, currencies or securities), as a substitute for direct investment ina particular asset class, to keep cash on hand to meetshareholder redemptions or other needs while maintainingexposure to the stock market.Focus risk. To the extent that the fund focuses its investments in particular industries, asset classes or sectorsof the economy, any market price movements, regulatoryor technological changes, or economic conditions affectingcompanies in those industries, asset classes or sectorsmay have a significant impact on the fund’s performance.Derivatives risk. Risks associated with derivatives mayinclude the risk that the derivative is not well correlatedwith the security, index or currency to which it relates; therisk that derivatives may result in losses or missed opportunities; the risk that the fund will be unable to sell thederivative because of an illiquid secondary market; the riskthat a counterparty is unwilling or unable to meet its obligation; and the risk that the derivative transaction couldexpose the fund to the effects of leverage, which couldincrease the fund’s exposure to the market and magnifypotential losses.The fund may also use other types of derivatives (i) forhedging purposes; (ii) for risk management; (iii) fornon-hedging purposes to seek to enhance potential gains;or (iv) as a substitute for direct investment in a particularasset class or to keep cash on hand to meet shareholderredemptions.Securities Lending. The fund may lend securities (up toone-third of total assets) to approved institutions.Active Trading. The fund may trade actively. This couldraise transaction costs (thus lowering returns).Counterparty risk. A financial institution or othercounterparty with whom the fund does business, or thatunderwrites, distributes or guarantees any investments orcontracts that the fund owns or is otherwise exposed to,may decline in financial health and become unable tohonor its commitments. This could cause losses for thefund or could delay the return or delivery of collateral orother assets to the fund.MAIN RISKSThere are several risk factors that could hurt the fund’sperformance, cause you to lose money or cause the fund’sperformance to trail that of other investments.

In certain situations, it may be difficult orimpossible to sell an investment and/or the fund may sellcertain investments at a price or time that is not advantageous in order to meet redemption requests or othercash needs.
