The Focused Value Portfolio will seek long-term growth by investing in 30 or fewer stocks that its trio of investment advisors believe to be undervalued without regard to market capitalization.

Martin Whitman of Third Avenue Funds, Phillip Davidson of American Century Investments and William Fries of Thornburg Funds will be the advisors of the fund.

Steven Neamtz, executive vice president of SunAmerica Mutual Funds said that the fund was launched because "growth and value do not move together and there are reasons to own both types of funds. Focused strategies have beaten the broad market and indexes."

The new fund will be marketed through the broker/dealer community, Neamtz said. SunAmerica funds are available though broker/dealers, and many online services including E*Trade and Waterhouse Securities. Merrill Lynch, Pain Webber and Prudential also carry the funds in their lines.

"We are advertising the SunAmerica name and AIG name though the television media," Neamtz said. "We just finished ads at the world series."

The expense ratio of A shares will be 155 basis points, Neamtz said.

Looking into the future Neamtz said the company will continue to launch one fund at a time. "This one is timely to launch at the end of year to defer capital gains. Once we have this launch out of the way we will consider more specialized funds. Maybe by sector or by region."
