Investing in small and mid-cap stocks is more risky and more volatile than investing in large cap stocks. The Fund concentrates a significant portion of its assets in the financial services and consumer discretionary sectors, and its performance may suffer if these sectors underperform the overall stock market. Ariel Fund pursues long-term capital appreciation by investing in small- to mid-sized undervalued companies that show strong potential for growth.

Performance data quoted represents past performance of Ariel Fund for the period from 11/06/1986 to 04/30/2012. The benchmark data is that of the Russell 2000 for the period from 11/01/1986 to 04/30/2012. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
