Nationwide Geneva Mid Cap Growth Fund



Investment Objective & Strategy

The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation with an investment focus on U.S. companies whose market capitalization is generally within the market capitalization range of the companies represented in the Russell Midcap Index at time of purchase. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets plus borrowings in U.S. mid-cap companies. In selecting growth stocks for the Fund, the subadviser emphasizes a “bottom-up” fundamental analysis (i.e., developing an understanding of the specific company through any of research, meetings with management and analysis of the company’s financial statements and public disclosures). The subadviser’s “bottom-up” approach is supplemented by “top-down” considerations (i.e., reviewing general economic conditions andanalyzing their effect on various industries).
