Investment Objectives

The objective of the Fund is to provide income generation with an emphasis on capital preservation. This Fund invests primarily in government and corporate debt securities from developed and emerging markets. It also invests in U.S. government and agency securities and high yield bonds. The Fund may also invest in preferred shares and other types of debt securities.

Investment Strategy

In managing the Fund, the portfolio sub-advisors allocate assets based on analyses of economic factors such as projected international interest rate movements, industry cycles and political trends. However, the portfolio sub-advisors may invest up to 100% of the Fund’s assets in any one sector. Within each sector, the portfolio sub-advisors look for securities that are appropriate for the overall Fund in terms of yield, credit quality, structure and industry distributions.
