Fund Fact Sheet:Download
Investment Objective:The Fund seeks to maximize total return through capital gains and current income while preserving capital value.
Investment Strategy:The Fund is actively managed and invests in a diversified portfolio composed primarily of global fixed income securities with an average dollar-weighted duration normally between three to ten years.
Investment Suitability:This Fund may be suitable for investors who have a medium to long-term investment horizon, seek higher returns than those offered by a shorter maturity bond fund, can accept short-term fluctuations in account value and want to diversify their portfolio with a globally diversified fixed-income investment option.

This Fund may invest, to a large extent, in high yield securities, commonly known as "junk bonds". While offering higher current yields, these securities may be considered speculative and are subject to greater risks than higher-rated bonds.Securities of emerging countries may involve additional risks including price volatility, reduced liquidity, currency fluctuation and financial reporting requirements as well as political and economic instability. 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. To the extent that the investment advisor misjudges current market conditions, the fund’s volatility may be amplified by its use of short sales and derivatives, and by its ability to select sub-advisers to allocate assets. Short sales by a fund theoretically involve unlimited loss potential since the market price of securities sold short may continuously increase. Leverage may increase the risk of loss and cause fluctuations in the market value of the fund’s portfolio to have disproportionately large effects or cause the NAV of the fund generally to decline faster than it would otherwise.
