Summary

You may find this Fund ideal, if you are a conservative investor who prefers the income and quality assurance offered by government securities. It is best suited for investors with relatively low-risk profiles and can provide a solid-core holding for income-oriented investors of all ages. Our approach is to select high-quality securities with maturities between one and 10 years, issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Government, as we manage risk exposure to achieve reasonable returns. We believe investing in a broad range of U.S. Government securities with intermediate-term maturities can provide greater stability of principal than is generally available from longer-term, higher-yielding bonds. The principal value and investment return of the Fund are neither guaranteed or insured by the U.S. Government.
