Fund Description

The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in bonds within its benchmark and portfolio tracking index, the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. It uses a sampling technique to create a portfolio that closely matches the overall investment characteristics of the index without investing in all of the securities in its index. The securities purchased by the fund will mainly be high-quality instruments rated in the top four credit categories by Moody's or S&P or deemed to be of the same quality by the advisors using its own credit quality analysis.
