Description

The investment seeks as high a level of current income consistent with prudent investing. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities with a dollar-weighted average maturity of less than 10 years and issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government, its agencies, or instrumentalities. It generally invests a substantial portion of its assets in mortgage-backed securities including adjustable rate mortgage securities (ARMs). The fund maintains the average dollar-weighted maturity of its fixed-rate portfolio in a range of one to five years. It may also invest in U.S. inflation-indexed securities issued by governments and municipal issuers.
