    Why AVUVX?

    • Invests in a broad set of U.S. small-cap companies and is designed to increase expected returns* by focusing on firms trading at what we believe are low valuations with higher profitability ratios**.

    • Pursues the benefits associated with indexing (diversification, low turnover, transparency of exposures), but with the ability to add value by making investment decisions using information in current prices.

    • Efficient portfolio management and trading process that is designed to enhance returns with the goal of reducing unnecessary risks and costs for investors.

    • Built to fit seamlessly into an investor's asset allocation.

    For detailed descriptions of indices or investing terms referenced above, refer to our glossary.

    *Expected Returns: Valuation theory shows that the expected return of a stock is a function of its current price, its book equity (assets minus liabilities) and expected future profits, and that the expected return of a bond is a function of its current yield and its expected capital appreciation (depreciation). We use information in current market prices and company financials to identify differences in expected returns among securities, seeking to overweight securities with higher expected returns based on this current market information. Actual returns may be different than expected returns, and there is no guarantee that the strategy will be successful.

    **Profitability-to-Book: The profitability-to-book ratio is used to measure a company's profitability relative to its book value. A company's profitability is generally calculated by subtracting operating expenses from its gross profit. Book value is generally a firm's reported assets minus its liabilities on its balance sheet.
