    Fund Summary 
    The investment seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in common stocks of U.S. companies and common stocks and depositary receipts of companies. Under normal market circumstances, it seeks to stay fully invested and does not attempt to time the market. Because of the fund's value focus, it is expected that investments in the securities of U.S. companies having smaller market capitalizations and the securities in foreign companies, including companies organized under the laws of emerging market countries, will be important components of the Independence fund's investment program.
