The principal risks are generally those attributable to stock investing. Holdings are subject to market, issuer, and other risks, and their values may fluctuate. Market risk is the risk that securities may decline in value due to factors affecting the securities markets or particular industries. Issuer risk is the risk that the value of a security may decline for reasons specific to the issuer, such as changes in its financial condition. More particularly, the strategy invests in smaller companies, which may be more susceptible to price swings than larger companies because they have fewer resources and more limited products, and many are dependent on a few key managers.
