Fund Description

The fund utilizes an asset allocation strategy to invest in a global portfolio of uncorrelated assets that can include exposure, through underlying vehicles, to stocks, bonds, commodities and other investments. It invests primarily in ETFs and similar products, which generally pursue a passive index-based strategy as well as actively managed closed-end management investment companies ("closed-end funds") and exchange-traded notes ("ETNs" and collectively with ETFs and closed-end funds, "underlying funds").
