Nationwide HighMark Balanced Fund

Overview

Investment Objective & Strategy

The Fund seeks capital appreciation and income. Conservation of capital is a secondary consideration in selecting portfolio investments.

The Fund, under normal market conditions, invests between 50% and 70% of its assets in equity securities, primarily common stocks, and at least 25% of its assets in fixed-income securities, primarily bonds. Within these ranges, the Fund’s specific allocation among stocks, bonds and other securities will vary depending on the subadviser’s assessment of business, economic and market conditions.
