Investment Objectives

The Fund’s investment objective is to provide income and some long-term capital growth primarily through investments in and exposure to fixed income securities and, to a lesser extent, Canadian and foreign equity securities, either directly or through investments in other mutual funds. The investment objective cannot be changed unless shareholders of the Fund approve the change at a meeting.

Investment Strategy

To achieve its objective, the Fund invests primarily in Underlying Funds. The decision to invest in an Underlying Fund is based on Russell Investments’ assessment of the market outlook and the Underlying Fund’s ability to help the Fund meet its stated investment objectives. We may replace the Underlying Funds with other Funds, change the weighting of the Underlying Funds or discontinue investing in Underlying Funds at any time without advance notice.
