Description

The investment seeks high current income while attempting to limit changes in the fund's net asset value per share caused by interest rate changes. The fund seeks current income with an emphasis on maintaining low volatility and overall short duration by investing primarily in higher quality, more liquid securities across 14 bond market sectors. It invests at least 80% of its assets in bonds, which are fixed income debt obligations of various types of issuers. The fund invests in a diversified portfolio of primarily short-term fixed income securities having an expected dollar-weighted average maturity of three years or less.
