Objective

Seeks to provide current income with growth of capital as a secondary objective.

Overview

A conservative fund that blends dividend-paying stocks with investment-grade corporate bonds.


Invests in a Mix of Stocks and Bonds

The Fund targets a balanced allocation of 55% bonds and 45% stocks, with fluctuations of no more than +/-5%. The bonds can provide income and help reduce volatility, while the stocks can provide growth potential.

Believe in the Power of Dividends

The Fund invests in stocks of companies with a history of above-average dividends and/or companies that are expected to increase their dividends—because those stocks have historically outperformed non-dividend paying stocks while experiencing less volatility.

Quality Bonds Help Reduce Volatility

Investment-grade corporate bonds have historically been a complement to risk assets like stocks and high yield bonds. They are complemented by a strategic allocation to high yield and emerging market debt.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. The Fund may allocate a portion of its assets to specialist portfolio managers, which may not work as intended. • Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. • For dividend-paying stocks, dividends are not guaranteed and may decrease without notice. • Different investment styles may go in and out of favor, which may cause the Fund to underperform the broader stock market. • Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political, economic and regulatory developments.
