The investment seeks as favorable a long-term total return through income as is consistent with preserving capital, primarily from investment-grade fixed-income securities.
The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in bonds. For these purposes, bonds include fixed-income securities of all types. It primarily invests in a broad range of investment-grade bonds and fixed-income securities, including, but not limited to, U.S. government securities, corporate bonds and mortgage-backed and other asset-backed-securities. The fund may also invest in other fixed-income securities, including those of non-investment grade quality.
