Investment Objective

The Fund seeks to achieve a competitive total return through an actively managed portfolio of stocks, bonds, and money market instruments, which offer income and capital growth opportunity and which satisfy the investment criteria, including financial, sustainability and social responsibility factors.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests in a combination of stocks, bonds, and money market instruments seeking to provide a complete investment portfolio in a single product. The Fund typically invests about 60% of its net assets in stocks and 40% in bonds or other fixed-income investments. The equity portion of the Fund is primarily a large cap core U.S. domestic portfolio, although the Fund may also invest in foreign stocks and mid-cap stocks. The fixed-income investments are primarily a wide variety of investment-grade debt securities, including corporate, mortgage-backed, and other asset-backed securities. The Fund uses a multi-manager approach that combines complementary equity investment styles with Calvert's in-house, relative-value fixed-income approach. The Advisor monitors the Fund's allocation and may rebalance or reallocate the Fund's assets based on its view of economic and market factors and events. The Fund seeks to invest in companies and other enterprises that demonstrate positive environmental, social and governance performance as they address corporate responsibility and sustainability challenges.

Investment Risk

Investment in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal invested. You could lose money on your investment in the Fund or the Fund could underperform because of the following risks: the market prices of stocks or bonds held by the Fund may fall; individual investments of the Fund may not perform as expected; and/or the Fund's portfolio management practices may not achieve the desired result. There is a risk that the Advisor may allocate assets to an asset class that that underperforms other asset classes.

The 30-Day SEC Yield is a standardized measure of the current market yield on the Fund’s portfolio and is calculated by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the 30-day period by the maximum offering price per share on the last day of the period. For funds that have a contractual fee waiver and/or expense reimbursement in effect, the fund also displays the higher subsidized yield, which accounts for the effect of the waiver and/or reimbursement . The 12-month Distribution Yield takes all the interest payments made by the fund over the last 12 months, and divides it by the sum of (i) the Fund’s NAV on the last day of the period, and (ii) any capital gains distributions that were made during that period. The 30-Day SEC Yield reflects the rate at which the Fund is earning income on its current portfolio of securities, while the 12-month Distribution yield reflects the Fund's past dividends paid to shareholders.

Important Disclosure

Performance results for Class Y shares of Calvert Balanced Portfolio prior to April 30, 2013, the inception date for Class Y shares, reflect the performance of Class A shares at NAV (i.e., without deduction of any front-end sales charge).  Actual Class Y share performance would have been higher than Class A share performance because Class Y has lower class-specific expenses than Class A.

The Fund also shows the Balanced Composite Benchmark (60% Russell 1000 Index; 40% Barclays U.S. Credit Index) because it is more consistent with the Fund's portfolio construction process and represents a more accurate reflection of the Fund's anticipated risk and return patterns.

Ratings are determined by using S&P, Moody's and Fitch rating services, whose rating categories are reflected above respectively. The letter ratings generally range from AAA (judged to be of the highest quality, with minimal credit risk) to D (the lowest rated class of bonds, typically in default with respect to timely payment of principal or interest). Bonds rated by all three services are assigned the median rating; if a bond is rated by only two agencies, it is assigned the lowest rating; if it is only rated by one agency, it is assigned that rating. Government securities may be rated lower than AAA/Aaa/AAA or may not be rated, and may include foreign government securities. If a bond is not rated by any of the aforementioned rating services, it appears in the "Not Rated" category. Ratings are subject to change.
