Investment Objective

The Fund’s objective is total return, measured in U.S. dollars. The Fund invests in a combination of equity securities and debt instruments of issuers located in developed and emerging market countries. Historically the Fund has invested approximately 60% of its assets in equity securities and 40% of its assets in debt instruments, but these allocations may vary generally between 30% and 75% in equity securities and 25% and 70% in debt instruments. The Fund generally focuses its equity investments in larger companies it believes to be undervalued compared to their perceived worth (value companies). The Fund generally focuses its debt investments in corporate, government and mortgage backed debt instruments. The Fund invests substantially all of its debt investments in investment grade debt instruments.
