Investment Approach

The RS Growth Team seeks to deliver long-term capital growth through a disciplined, research-intensive approach that discovers and invests in dynamic, small-cap companies exhibiting sustainable earnings growth potential that can grow to mid- and large-cap companies. 

Philosophy and Process

Emphasize innovation – Search for pioneering, disruptive businesses that we believe can change an industry to drive sustainable earnings growth over time.
Focus on the long term– Highlight companies that are aligned with the team’s fundamental beliefs and that rank highly on key quantitative metrics.
Manage risk– Seek an attractive risk/reward profile at the time of purchase and deploy a three-stage risk management screen on all holdings to help mitigate the negative impact of any single position.

Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance during periods of exceptional market conditions should not be expected to be repeated in a normal market environment. Current performance may be lower or higher than that cited.

Class A performance quoted "with maximum sales load" reflects the current maximum sales charge of 5.75%. The sales load on Class C shares is deferred and will be charged if you redeem shares within one year of purchase. The contingent deferred sales load is 1.00% of the purchase or sale price of the shares, whichever is less. Please read the prospectus carefully for more information on sales charges as they do not apply in all cases and if applied are reduced for larger purchases. Any sales charges are in addition to the Fund's fees and expenses as detailed in the Fund's most current prospectus. The performance quoted at NAV or "without sales load" does not reflect any sales charge. If a sales charge were included, the performance stated above would be lower.

Total return figures reflect an expense limitation in effect during the periods shown; without such limitation, the performance shown would have been lower. Performance results assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse certain expenses through at least July 31, 2018. The Adviser is permitted to recoup fees waived/expenses reimbursed for up to 3 years after the fiscal year in which the waiver/reimbursement took place, subject to certain limitations. Please read the prospectus for details.

Class R and Y shares of the Fund are only available to investors that meet certain eligibility requirements.

Returns are average annual total returns, except those for periods of less than one year, which are cumulative.

The Russell 1000® Growth Index is an unmanaged market-capitalization-weighted index that measures the performance of those companies in the Russell 1000® Index (which consists of the 1,000 largest U.S. companies based on total market capitalization) with higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth values. Index results assume the reinvestment of dividends paid on the stocks constituting the index. You may not invest in the index, and, unlike the Fund, the index does not incur fees and expenses.

An investor should consider the fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money. This and other important information about the fund can be found in the fund’s prospectus, or, if applicable, the summary prospectus. To obtain a copy, visit the prospectus page. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

All investing involves risk, including potential loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. Investing in mid-size companies can involve risks such as having less publicly available information, higher volatility, and less liquidity than in the case of larger companies. Narrowly focused investment strategies can be subject to greater market fluctuation. Overweighting investments in certain sectors or industries increases the risk of loss due to general declines in the prices of stocks in those sectors or industries.

The Funds are distributed by Victory Capital Advisers, Inc. ("VCA"), member FINRA and SIPC. Find out more about the background of this firm on FINRA's BrokerCheck.

Victory Capital Management Inc., an affiliate of VCA, is the investment advisor to the Funds and receives a fee from the Funds for its services.

Characteristics
Weighted harmonic average is the average market capitalization of all companies in a portfolio with each company weighted according to its percent of the portfolio. Market capitalization is the total dollar value of all outstanding shares computed as number of shares times current market price. Avg Price/Earnings Ratio (Last 12 Months & Next 12 Months) Shows the multiple of earnings at which a stock sells. Determined by dividing current stock price by earnings per share for the relevant 12 month period. Earnings per share for the P/E ratio are determined by dividing earnings for the relevant 12 month period by the number of common shares outstanding. Average Price/Book Ratio: Compares a stock’s market value to the value of total assets less total liabilities (book value). Dividend yield is total cash dividends paid as a percent of market capitalization at the end of the period. The yield for the index is the total of all dividends paid over twelve months divided by the total market capitalization. Return on Equity is net income divided by common equity. A measure of how well a company used reinvested earnings to generate additional earnings. EPS is the portion of a company's profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock. Earnings per share serves as an indicator of a company's profitability. Long-Term Debt/Capitalization is an indicator of financial leverage. Shows long-term debt as a proportion of the capital available. Determined by dividing long-term debt by the sum of long-term debt, preferred stock and common stockholder's equity.

Target metrics reflect our stated goals and are not absolute limits as these are affected by various factors like market fluctuations.
Percentage allocations listed above may not sum to 100% due to rounding methodology.

Fees & Expenses

Annual fund operating expenses are listed below. Victory Capital is committed to being fully transparent about fees and expenses, enabling investors to make informed decisions.

This calculator is intended to help you assess the impact of the operating expenses of the Class A, C, R, or Y shares of the Fund on the Fund’s potential returns. The calculator allows you to assume that you have made a hypothetical investment of any amount in Class A, C, R, or Y shares of the Fund for a 10-year period, and that your investment earns a 5% return each year. The example assumes that the Fund’s net operating expenses through Year 1 and 2 are the same as those shown in the Annual Fund Operating Expenses table of the Fund’s Prospectus under “Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver/Expense Reimbursement” and for all subsequent periods are the same as those shown under “Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses.” The example reflects the impact of sales loads where applicable. Your actual costs may be higher or lower. Based on these assumptions, the calculator shows, for each year and cumulatively for all 10 years, (1) the fees and the costs (the “Expenses”) associated with your investment and (2) the difference (the “Dollar Impact on Return”) between your return if the Fund had not incurred the Expenses and your return after giving effect to the Expenses.

Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance during periods of exceptional market conditions should not be expected to be repeated in a normal market environment. Current performance may be lower or higher than that cited.

Class A performance quoted "with maximum sales load" reflects the current maximum sales charge of 5.75%. The sales load on Class C shares is deferred and will be charged if you redeem shares within one year of purchase. The contingent deferred sales load is 1.00% of the purchase or sale price of the shares, whichever is less. Please read the prospectus carefully for more information on sales charges as they do not apply in all cases and if applied are reduced for larger purchases. Any sales charges are in addition to the Fund's fees and expenses as detailed in the Fund's most current prospectus. The performance quoted at NAV or "without sales load" does not reflect any sales charge. If a sales charge were included, the performance stated above would be lower.

Total return figures reflect an expense limitation in effect during the periods shown; without such limitation, the performance shown would have been lower. Performance results assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse certain expenses through at least July 31, 2018. The Adviser is permitted to recoup fees waived/expenses reimbursed for up to 3 years after the fiscal year in which the waiver/reimbursement took place, subject to certain limitations. Please read the prospectus for details.

Class R and Y shares of the Fund are only available to investors that meet certain eligibility requirements.

Returns are average annual total returns, except those for periods of less than one year, which are cumulative.

The Russell 1000® Growth Index is an unmanaged market-capitalization-weighted index that measures the performance of those companies in the Russell 1000® Index (which consists of the 1,000 largest U.S. companies based on total market capitalization) with higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth values. Index results assume the reinvestment of dividends paid on the stocks constituting the index. You may not invest in the index, and, unlike the Fund, the index does not incur fees and expenses.

An investor should consider the fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money.

Fees & Expenses

Annual fund operating expenses are listed below. Victory Capital is committed to being fully transparent about fees and expenses, enabling investors to make informed decisions.

This calculator is intended to help you assess the impact of the operating expenses of the Class A, C, R, or Y shares of the Fund on the Fund’s potential returns. The calculator allows you to assume that you have made a hypothetical investment of any amount in Class A, C, R, or Y shares of the Fund for a 10-year period, and that your investment earns a 5% return each year. The example assumes that the Fund’s net operating expenses through Year 1 and 2 are the same as those shown in the Annual Fund Operating Expenses table of the Fund’s Prospectus under “Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver/Expense Reimbursement” and for all subsequent periods are the same as those shown under “Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses.” The example reflects the impact of sales loads where applicable. Your actual costs may be higher or lower. Based on these assumptions, the calculator shows, for each year and cumulatively for all 10 years, (1) the fees and the costs (the “Expenses”) associated with your investment and (2) the difference (the “Dollar Impact on Return”) between your return if the Fund had not incurred the Expenses and your return after giving effect to the Expenses.
