Nationwide Small Company Growth Fund

Overview

Investment Objective & Strategy

The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation. Current income is a secondary consideration in selecting portfolio investments. Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in common stocks of small-capitalization 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.
