MidCap Value Fund I (A) (PCMVX)






Class A | Class J | Class I

Total Returns



Investment results shown represent historical performance and do not guarantee future results. Investment returns and principal values fluctuate with changes in interest rates and other market conditions so the value, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original costs. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data shown.

Where gross and net expense ratios differ, the investment adviser has contractually agreed to limit the investment option's expenses. Differences also may be due to the investment adviser's decision to pay (through the same dates) certain expenses that would normally be payable by the fund.

Effective June 30, 2016, this portfolio is sub-advised by LA Capital and Victory Capital. Prior to June 30, 2016, the portfolio was sub-advised by Goldman Sachs and LA Capital. The portfolio has had various sub-advisors since its inception. Performance results displayed reflect all sub-advisors managing this portfolio during the time periods displayed.

These calculated returns reflect the historical performance of the oldest share class of the fund, adjusted to reflect a portion of the fees and expenses of this share class. For time periods prior to inception date of the fund, predecessor performance is reflected. Please see the fund's prospectus for more information on specific expenses, and the fund's most recent shareholder report for actual date of first sale.
