NVIT Multi-Manager Mid Cap Value
Objective And StrategyObjective
Seeks long term capital appreciation
Under normal conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities issued by mid-cap companies. It employs a "value" style of investing, which means investing in equity securities that the fund's subadvisers believe to be trading at prices that do not reflect a company's intrinsic value. The fund may invest in stocks of mid-cap companies that are located outside the United States. It may invest in any economic sector and, at times, emphasize one or more particular sectors.
* This portfolio invests in securities of foreign issuers which involves risks not typically associated with domestic issuers, including currency fluctuations and the possibility of political and economic instability. Emerging markets involve risks in addition to those generally associated with foreign securities, because political and economic structures in many emerging markets may be undergoing significant evolution and rapid development.
* This portfolio invests (or may invest) in securities of companies with micro-, small-, or mid-capitalization. Any investment in micro-, small-, or mid-capitalization companies involves greater risk than that customarily associated with investments in larger, more established companies because of the greater business risks of smaller size, limited markets and financial resources, narrower product lines, and frequent lack of management depth. As such, micro- or small-cap companies may be more subject to erratic and abrupt market movements than securities of larger, more established companies.
* This Fund may invest in publicly issued equity securities, including common stocks. Investments in common stocks are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time.
* The investment styles employed by the money managers may not be complementary. A multi-manager approach could result in a concentration of certain types of securities and higher portfolio turnover.
