This Fund is a good choice for those long-term, income-oriented investors who are looking to diversify their investments by gaining a broad exposure to the investment-grade U.S. bond market (excluding high yield). The Core Bond Fund seeks to maximize total return consistent with reasonable risk by investing primarily in a broad range of bonds and other fixed income securities. This Fund maintains a dollar-weighted average maturity between three and 15 years.
- Invest primarily in domestic investment-grade debt obligations with an average maturity, under normal circumstances, between three and 15 years.
- Buy and sell securities using a relative value approach that employs models that analyze and compare expected returns and assumed risks.
- Emphasize securities and types of securities (such as Treasury, agency, asset-backed, mortgage-related and corporate securities) that we believe have the potential to provide a favorable return.
If you are a long-term, income-oriented investor who is looking to diversify your investments by gaining broad exposure to the U.S. bond market while eliminating your exposure to non-investment grade debt then this Fund may be right for you. It offers a diversified portfolio of bond securities primarily invested in U.S. investment-grade debt.
