About this Product

Principle Investment Strategies

  • Under normal market conditions, the Portfolio invests at least 80% of its net assets in a diversified portfolio of bonds that are limited maturity debt securities.
  • Under normal market conditions, the Portfolio maintains significant exposure to government securities.
  • The Portfolio also invests in investment-grade non-government securities, issued by companies of all sizes.


Investment Objective

The Portfolio seeks highest current income consistent with low risk to principal and liquidity. As a secondary objective, the Portfolio seeks to enhance its total return through capital appreciation when market factors, such as falling interest rates and rising bond prices, indicate that capital appreciation may be available without significant risk to principal.

Standard Deviation
Standard Deviation:

A measure of the degree to which an individual probability value varies from the distribution mean. The higher the number, the greater the risk.


The sensitivity of a portfolio's returns to changes in the return of the market as measured by the index or benchmark that represents the market. A portfolio with a beta of 1.0 behaves exactly like the index. A beta less than 1.0 suggests lower risk than the index, while a beta greater than 1.0 indicates a risk level higher than the index.

The proportion of the variation in a portfolio's returns that can be explained by the variability of the returns of an index. High R-squared (close to 1.0) is usually consistent with broad diversification.


A measure of risk-adjusted performance; alpha reflects the difference between a portfolio's actual return and the return that could be expected give its risk as measured by beta.

Sharpe Ratio
Sharpe Ratio:

A risk-adjusted measure calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the portfolio's historical risk-adjusted performance.

Information Ratio
Information Ratio:

The ratio of portfolio returns in excess of a market index to the variability of those excess returns; in effect, information ratio describes the value added by active management in relation to the risk taken to achieve those returns.

Principal Risks

Investment Risks:  You could lose money on an investment in the Portfolio. Any of the following risks, among others, could affect Portfolio performance or cause the Portfolio to lose money or to underperform market averages of other funds. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. The Fund may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance. The Fund is subject to both Credit and Interest Rate Risk. The Fund's share price and yield will be affected by interest rate movements, with bond prices generally moving in the opposite direction from interest rates. Credit Risk refers to the bond issuers and senior loan issuers ability to make timely payments of principal and interest. High-Yield Securities, or junk bonds, are rated lower than investment-grade bonds because there is a greater possibility that the issuer may be unable to make interest and principal payments on those securities. Investment Model: A manager’s proprietary model may not adequately allow for existing or unforeseen market factors or the interplay between such factors.  Volatility management techniques may not always be successful in reducing volatility, may not protect against market declines, and may limit the Portfolio’s participation in market gains. Mistakes in the construction and implementation of the investment models may create errors or limitations that might go undetected.  There is no guarantee that the use of these investment models will result in effective investment decisions.  To the extent that the Fund invests in Mortgage-Related Securities, its exposure to prepayment and extension risks may be greater than investments in other fixed-income securities. Other risks of the Portfolio include but are not limited to: Bank Instruments, Borrowing; Company; Credit Default Swaps; Currency; Liquidity; Market; Market Capitalization; Market Disruption and Geopolitical; Municipal Obligations; Other Investment Companies; Prepayment and Extension; Restricted Securities; Securities Lending; Sovereign Debt; and U.S. Government Securities and Obligations:  Investors should consult the Portfolio’s Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Portfolio’s risks.

An investment in the Portfolio is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board or any other government agency.

On March 23, 2020, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued an order providing registered funds with temporary flexibility with respect to borrowing. In connection with this order, on March 30, 2020, the Portfolio’s Board of Trustees (the “Board”) approved a policy permitting each Portfolio to deviate from its non‐fundamental policy with respect to borrowing (as set forth in the Portfolios’ Statement of Additional Information under the section titled “Fundamental and Non‐ Fundamental Investment Restrictions”) for the period from March 30, 2020 until June 30, 2020 (unless extended by the Board upon any extension of the order by the SEC).

During this time, the Portfolio may borrow money in an amount of up to 33 1/3% of the Portfolio’s total assets to meet short‐term needs, such as in connection with redemptions. The Portfolio incurs interest and other expenses when it borrows money. Borrowing creates leverage, which may increase expenses and increase the impact of the Portfolio’s other risks. The use of leverage may exaggerate any increase or decrease in the Portfolio’s net asset value causing the Portfolio to be more volatile than a fund that does not borrow.
