The Fund is actively managed against the Bloomberg Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Index and it generally maintains a duration range of +/- 10% of that benchmark’s duration. However, the Fund has the flexibility to reduce duration for defensive purposes during extreme rising interest-rate environments. With a maximum duration of seven years, the Fund’s goal is to outperform the benchmark, net of fees, over a full market cycle using a high-quality strategy with less risk, lower volatility and low turnover.
