Investment Objectives

Maximize total return by investing primarily in investment-grade debt instruments of issuers anywhere in the world while following a sustainable investment approach.

Investment Strategy

The Fund may invest in debt instruments of any maturity, but will normally maintain a portfolio whose average effective duration is within 30% of the average duration of the U.S. bond market as a whole, as estimated by the sub-advisor.
