Basic Info

Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to maximize current income and may also consider capital appreciation by investing mainly in investment grade fixed-income securities. The portfolio consists principally of non-US government bonds, investment grade corporate bonds, mortgage-backed securities, high yield corporate bonds, emerging markets bonds, US government securities and money market securities. The fund may increase investments in emerging market debt and tactically move from high-grade to higher yielding bonds.
