Investment Objective

The Fund seeks to provide a positive total return regardless of market conditions over a full market cycle.


The Fund is sub-advised by three complementary fixed-income managers:

  • Brandywine Global: Invests long in markets with the highest real yields, short in markets with the lowest real yields.

  • Payden & Rygel: Implements a “best ideas” portfolio reflecting the most promising risk-adjusted opportunities around the globe.

  • PIMCO: Seeks an absolute-return strategy without the constraints of a benchmark or significant sector or instrument.


The Fund allocates investments across a wide
range of global investment opportunities. This
flexibility includes:

  • Investing in a number of geographic regions or
    countries, including emerging markets.

  • Allocating to fixed-income instruments without restrictions on their credit quality, although high yield bonds are limited to no more than 40% of the net exposure.

  • Using foreign currencies or currency derivative
    instruments and other derivative instruments.

Investing in derivative instruments involves liquidity, credit, interest rate and market risks. Investments in high yield securities are subject to greater levels of credit, interest rate, market and liquidity risks than investment-grade securities. Although the Fund has a flexible approach to investing, diversification does not ensure against loss. Investing in foreign and emerging market securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations and economic and political risks. Please see the prospectus for a complete discussion of the Fund’s risks. There can be no assurances that the investment objectives of this Fund will be met.
