Performance can be affected by market and investment style risk. The Fund’s investments in small- and mid- capitalization companies could experience greater volatility than investments in large-capitalization companies.

The investment performance assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions. The quoted performance for the Fund includes performance of RCM Partners Limited Partnership for periods prior to July 20, 1993. It should be noted that: (1) the Fund’s performance includes performance for periods before the Fund’s registration statement became effective; (2) the Fund was not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and, therefore, was not subject to the investment restrictions imposed by law on registered mutual funds; and (3) if the Fund had been registered during such periods, performance may have been adversely affected. The S&P 1500 Index includes all stocks in the S&P 500, S&P 400, and S&P 600. This index covers 90% of the market capitalization of U.S.stocks.  The Russell 1000® Index is an unmanaged index of the largest 1,000 stocks in the Russell 3000® Index. Indexes do not incur fees and it is not possible to invest directly in an index.
