Touchstone Large Cap Growth Fund Sub-Advised by: Navellier & Associates Inc.

Objective

The Fund seeks long-term growth of capital by investing primarily in common stocks of large-cap U.S. companies.

Investment Style

chart
  • Seeks to identify inefficiently priced stocks believed to have strong appreciation potential using a three-step process
  • Utilizes a disciplined quantitative, objective, bottom-up stock selection process to identify stocks with above average return potential
  • Applies fundamental criteria such as earnings growth, profit margins, reasonable price/earnings ratios based on expected future earnings to the stocks identified with above average return potential
  • Selects and weights stocks according to a disciplined methodology
  • Monitors and adjusts the criteria and their relative weights based upon the current financial markets
The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in stocks of large-cap companies which may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges. The Fund invests in stocks of mid-cap companies which may be subject to more erratic market movements than stocks of larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in growth stocks which may be more volatile than investing in other stocks and may underperform when value investing is in favor. The Fund may experience higher portfolio turnover which may lead to increased fund expenses, lower investment returns and higher short-term capital gains taxable to shareholders. The Fund may focus its investments in specific sectors and therefore be susceptible to positive or negative developments in the sector which may increase the Fund's volatility and magnify its effects on total return. The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a limited number of issuers and may be subject to greater risks. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The advisor engages the sub-advisor to manage the Fund's portfolio; the sub-advisor's judgment may impact the Fund's performance.
