Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of the value of its net assets in fixed income securities. Its investment advisor will select investment grade fixed income securities and unrated securities determined to be of comparable quality, but also may invest up to 15% of the fund's total assets in lower-rated debt securities ("junk bonds"). The fund normally invests in securities with short maturities, and the fund seeks to maintain a weighted average maturity of three years or less.
