Fund Focus

The Fund seeks current income by investing in a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities.

The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in investment-grade debt securities (those rated above Ba1/BB+ by Moody's/Standard & Poor's). In addition to investment-grade securities, the Fund may also invest in debt securities issued by any of the following: public and private U.S. companies, foreign companies, the U.S. government and its agencies, such as the Federal Home Loan Bank, state and local governments issuing taxable municipal securities, and foreign governments, their agencies and instrumentalities.

The Fund may also invest in mortgage-backed debt securities, asset-backed debt securities and restricted securities, and may invest up to 15% of its assets in common and preferred stock, convertible securities that an owner has the option to exchange for common stock at a pre-stated price, and debt securities carrying warrants to purchase equity securities. Up to 20% of this mutual fund's assets may be invested in below-investment grade securities (those rated Ba1/BB+ or lower by Moody's/Standard & Poor's).

While the Fund may purchase debt securities of any maturity, it will primarily invest in debt securities with 7- to 15-year maturities.
