The investment seeks to provide current income consistent with low volatility of principal.
Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest at least 80% of its assets in fixed income securities. It will primarily invest in fixed income securities that are rated investment grade or better. The fixed income securities in which the fund invests may have maturities of any length. While the fund will primarily invest in fixed income securities that are rated investment grade, the fund may, at times, hold debt securities that are rated below investment grade as a result of downgrades in the rating of the securities subsequent to their purchase by the fund.
