Nationwide Growth Fund

Overview

Investment Objective & Strategy

The Fund seeks long-term capital growth. Invests primarily in common stocks issued by large-cap companies, employing a growth style of investing. In other words, the Fund seeks companies whose earnings are expected to grow consistently faster than those of other companies. In selecting stocks, the subadviser generally employs both quantitative techniques (mathematical and statistical methods) and fundamental analysis (qualitative research) to identify companies that appear to have favorable long-term growth potential and the likelihood of positive earnings revisions, along with the financial resources to capitalize on growth opportunities.
