The investment seeks to provide shareholders with a total return that exceeds the rate of inflation over the long-term.
The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (including the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) in inflation-protected debt securities. These securities include inflation-indexed bonds of varying maturities issued by the U.S. government and non-U.S. governments, their agencies or instrumentalities, and U.S. and non-U.S. corporations. The fund currently intends to focus on inflation-protected debt securities issued by the U.S. Treasury. It invests only in securities rated investment grade. The fund is non-diversified.
