Summary

If you're a conservative, income-oriented investor who wants higher current income than that generally offered by the U.S. Government Fund and you're willing to assume moderately more risk in exchange, you may find this Fund suitable. This Fund can also be an appropriate choice for investors who want to broaden and diversify their fixed income portfolio. Our experienced investment team's approach is to monitor and control the portfolio risk relative to the overall market while maintaining an average maturity within the portfolio between seven and 12 years.

Fund Objective

Current Income

Fund Strategy

  • Invest primarily in investment-grade domestic debt obligations with an average maturity, under normal circumstances, between three and 15 years, but may own, to a limited extent, securities of foreign issuers and non-investment-grade debt.
  • 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, mortgage-related and corporate securities) that we believe have the potential to provide a favorable return.
