NATIONWIDE FUND

Mutual Fund Details From Nationwide

Overview

Investment Objective & Strategy

The Fund seeks total return through a flexible combination of capital appreciation and current income. The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of common stocks to produce an overall blended equity portfolio consisting of various types of stocks that offer the potential for capital growth and/or dividend income. The Fund's subadvisers both employ bottom-up approaches (i.e., based on the characteristics of individual companies, rather than broad economic trends) to construct a diversified portfolio, although each subadviser uses its own unique processes or style.
