Investing in small and mid-cap stocks is more risky and more volatile than investing in large cap stocks. Investing in equity stocks is risky and subject to the volatility of the markets. Ariel Fund and Ariel Appreciation Fund concentrate a significant portion of their assets in the financial services and consumer discretionary sectors, and their performance may suffer if these sectors underperform the overall stock market. Ariel Focus Fund is a non-diversified fund and therefore may be subject to greater volatility than a more diversified investment. The Funds pursue long-term capital appreciation. Ariel Fund invests primarily in small- to mid-sized companies, Ariel Appreciation invests primarily in mid-sized companies and Ariel Focus invests primarily in companies of any size in order to provide investors access to the best opportunities in companies of all market capitalizations.
