Fund Overview

Investment Goal: The Fund seeks current income and preservation of capital.

Investment Strategy: The Fund is a fund-of-funds that seeks to achieve its investment goal by investing in other funds of the Trust (underlying funds). Under normal market conditions, the Fund’s exposure to the two broad asset classes of debt and equity are expected to be within the following ranges: 70–85% debt and 15–30% equity. Within the broad asset classes of debt and equity are narrower asset-class categories. The Fund invests in underlying funds to gain exposure to these broad asset classes and narrower asset-class categories.

About Principal Risks

There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its investment goal. Asset allocation and diversification do not guarantee future results, ensure a profit or protect against loss. Although diversification among asset classes can help reduce volatility over the long term, this assumes that asset classes do not move in tandem and that positive returns in one or more asset classes will help offset negative returns in other asset classes. There is a risk that you could achieve better returns by investing in an individual fund or multiple funds representing a single asset class rather than using asset allocation. A fund-of-funds does not guarantee gains, may incur losses and/or experience volatility, particularly during periods of broad market declines, and is subject to its own expenses along with the expenses of the underlying funds. It is typically exposed to the same risks as the underlying funds in which it invests in proportion to their allocations.
