The investment seeks above-average total return over a market cycle of three to five years. The fund normally invests 80% of its assets in fixed income securities. It invests primarily in U.S. government securities, investment grade corporate bonds and mortgage- and asset-backed securities. The fund will ordinarily seek to maintain an average duration similar to that of the Barclays Capital 1-3 Year U.S. Government/Credit Index, which generally ranges between zero and three years. It may, but it is not required to, use derivative instruments for a variety of purposes, including hedging, risk management, portfolio management or to earn income.
