Summary

You may find this Fund ideal if you are an investor who favors current income exempt from regular federal income tax. It is particularly well suited for income-oriented investors in higher tax brackets willing to assume some risk. Income from the Fund may be subject to federal alternative minimum tax (AMT), state and local taxes. We concentrate on producing conservative tax-free income while managing portfolio risk. We believe investing in a broad range of municipal securities with intermediate-term maturities can provide greater stability of principal than is generally available from longer-term, higher-yielding bonds. The Fund is "non-diversified" under the Investment Company Act of 1940, and may invest more of its assets in fewer issuers than "diversified" mutual funds.

  • Maintain a dollar-weighted average maturity range, under normal circumstances, between three and 10 years.
