A Word About Risk

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. As with any stock fund, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to stock market movements. Investing in the Fund will also involve a number of other risks, including issuer-specific risk and mid-cap risk. The Fund invests primarily in dividend-paying equity securities, with a focus on mid- to large- cap companies. There is no assurance or guarantee that such companies will declare, continue to pay, or increase dividends. Stocks of mid-cap companies tend to be more volatile than those of large-cap companies, as midcap companies tend to be more susceptible to adverse business or economic events than larger, more established companies. In addition, because the Advisor manages the Fund using a disciplined screening process, the Fund is subject to the additional risk that the investment approach may not be successful. Further, the Advisor does not intend to make frequent changes to the Fund’s portfolio in response to market movements.

About The Fund Manager

Manning & Napier Advisors, LLC (Manning & Napier) provides investment advisory services to Exeter Trust Company, Trustee of the Manning & Napier Collective Investment Trust Funds. Manning & Napier is headquartered in Rochester, NY and has more than 45 years of experience managing investment objectives. The Firm’s active management approach focuses on participating in rising markets and, as important, helping to reduce the risk of large losses in sustained bear market periods. A team of investment analysts and professionals make all investment decisions in an effort to provide investors with strong risk-adjusted returns.

A Redefined Approach to Value Investing

We re-define “value portfolio” in this strategy by using a systematic, but flexible approach. This allows us to actively find areas of the market that are offering superior dividends and valuations, which has historically driven favorable risk-adjusted returns and meaningful downside risk management.

A Word About Risk

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. As with any stock fund, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to stock market movements. Investing in the Fund will also involve a number of other risks, including issuer-specific risk and mid-cap risk. The Fund invests primarily in dividend-paying equity securities, with a focus on mid- to large- cap companies. There is no assurance or guarantee that such companies will declare, continue to pay, or increase dividends. Stocks of mid-cap companies tend to be more volatile than those of large-cap companies, as midcap companies tend to be more susceptible to adverse business or economic events than larger, more established companies. In addition, because the Advisor manages the Fund using a disciplined screening process, the Fund is subject to the additional risk that the investment approach may not be successful. Further, the Advisor does not intend to make frequent changes to the Fund’s portfolio in response to market movements.
