Investing in small- and mid-cap stocks is more risky and volatile than investing in large cap stocks. Investing in equity stocks is risky and subject to the volatility of the markets. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which Ariel Fund invests may never be recognized by the broader market. Ariel Fund often invests a significant portion of its assets in companies within 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/mid-sized undervalued companies that show strong potential for growth.
