Inception
(05/01/1998)

10.11%

Inception performance is based on the Equity Series Class S inception of 05/01/1998. For periods through 03/01/2019 (the inception date of the Class W shares), performance for the Class W shares is based on the historical performance of the Class S shares. Because the Class W shares invest in the same portfolio of securities as the Class S shares, performance will be different only to the extent that the Class S shares have a higher expense ratio. Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Performance for periods greater than one year is annualized. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted.

Expense Ratio

*Reflects the Advisor's contractual agreement to waive its management fee and limit and reimburse certain other expenses. These contractual waivers may not be amended or terminated without the prior approval of the Fund's Board of Directors. The Class W shares are only available to discretionary investment accounts and other accounts managed by the Advisor. These clients pay a management fee to the Advisor that is separate from the fund's expenses.
