Investment Objective

The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of large-capitalization growth stocks. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the CRSP U.S. Large Cap Growth Index, a broadly diversified index predominantly made up of growth stocks of large U.S. companies. It attempts to replicate the target index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index.
