The Diversified Equity investment strategy is designed to seek a favorable long-term rate of return through capital appreciation and investment income by investing primarily in a broadly diversified portfolio of common stocks.

The portfolio management team seeks to invest in a broadly diversified portfolio of domestic and foreign equity securities by using a combination of three investment strategies: active management, enhanced indexing, and pure indexing. The team may invest in companies of any market capitalization size or investment style (growth, blend, or value) and will invest a small percentage of its foreign investments in emerging market securities.

The benchmark for the investment strategy is a composite index that is comprised of two unmanaged indices: the Russell 3000® Index (domestic equities) and the MSCI ACWI ex-USA IMI (foreign equities). The weights in the composite index change to reflect the relative sizes of the domestic and foreign segments of portfolio.
