Ariel Focus Fund is a non-diversified fund and therefore may be subject to greater volatility than a more diversified investment. The Fund is often concentrated in fewer sectors than its benchmarks, and its performance may suffer if these sectors underperform the overall stock market. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which the Fund invests may never be recognized by the broader market. Investing in small- and mid-cap stocks is riskier and more volatile than investing in large-cap stocks. Investing in equity stocks is risky and subject to the volatility of the markets.
