Investment Objective:The Fund seeks to provide current income and modest capital appreciation.
Investment Strategy:The Fund, through investments in the Select Funds, combines a greater percentage of fixed income securities with a smaller percentage of equity securities. The following potential ranges are used to allocate the Fund’s assets among the Select Funds or other investments: Fixed Income 50-80%; Equities 20-40%; Real Assets 0-15%; Alternatives 0-15%.
This Fund may be suitable for investors who have a short- to medium-time investment horizon, possess a relatively low tolerance for risk and want some exposure to the growth potential of the stock market tempered by a larger allocation to short-term, fixed-income securities.
This fund is subject to interest rate risk. Meaning, when interest rates rise, the value of the existing bonds decrease and vice versa. Changes in interest rates have a bigger impact on long duration holdings than on short duration holdings.
The Fund attempts to achieve its objective by investing in the GuideStone Select Funds. By investing in the Fund you will also incur the expenses and risks of the underlying Select Funds. The principal risks of the Funds will change depending on the asset mix of the Select Funds in which they invest. You may directly invest in the Select Funds. The Funds’ value will go up and down in response to changes in the share prices of the investments that they own. It is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund.
