Investment Objective

The Fund seeks inflation protection and income primarily through investments in Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) issued by the U.S. Treasury Department and backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.


Unlike many other funds in this class, the Fund invests only in TIPS, in order to provide inflation protection without exposure to unnecessary risks associated with other instruments.
