Whatever your view on the indexing vs. index funds debate, the following is indisputable: A group of managed funds we call Select Equity funds has, on average, consistently topped the indexes over a range of time periods — from one to 10 years.
Index funds provide what the market delivers — nothing more, nothing less. The best investment managers can offer more, including the potential to beat the market and build more wealth.
Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.
Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing.
