Investing in small- and mid-cap stocks is more risky and volatile than investing in large-cap stocks. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which the Funds invest may never be recognized by the broader market. Ariel Fund and Ariel Appreciation Fund are often concentrated in fewer sectors that their benchmarks, and their performance may suffer if these sectors underperform the overall stock market.

A growth investment strategy seeks stocks that are deemed to have superior growth potential. Growth stocks offer an established track record and are perceived to be less risky than value stocks. A value investment strategy seeks undervalued stocks that show a strong potential for growth. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which a value strategy invests may be based on incorrect assumptions or estimations, may be affected by declining fundamentals or external forces, and may never be recognized by the broader market.
