Equity securities generally have greater price volatility than fixed-income securities and are subject to issuer risk and market risk. The Stock Index Fund pursues its objective by investing substantially all of its assets in another pooled investment vehicle (a “master fund”). The ability of the Stock Index Fund to meet its investment objective is directly related to the ability of the master fund to meet its investment objective. Index funds may hold securities of companies that present risks that an investment adviser researching individual securities might otherwise seek to avoid and are subject to tracking error risk.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 Stock Index is a broad-based measure of U.S. stock market performance and includes 500 widely held common stocks. Indices are unmanaged and investors cannot invest directly in an index. Unless otherwise noted, performance of indices do not account for any fees, commissions or other expenses that would be incurred. Returns include reinvested dividends.
Index funds are subject to tracking risk, the risk that the fund’s return will not closely track the return of the index.
The expense ratio shows the percentage of fund assets deducted annually to cover operating costs. Fund expense ratios shown here do not include acquired fund fees and expenses. If applicable, these additional costs are disclosed in the prospectus. For some funds, the investment advisor has agreed voluntarily or contractually (for at least the current fiscal year) to waive or reimburse a portion of expenses. The net expense ratio is the expense ratio minus the portion of expenses waived or reimbursed. Please see the current prospectus for additional details.
