Investment Objective

The Portfolio seeks to maximize real levels of current income consistent with reasonable investment risk, by investing primarily in inflation adjusted fixed income securities.

Investment Strategy

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing under normal circumstances at least 80% of the value of its assets in inflation protected fixed income securities. These securities will normally be U.S. dollar denominated and include securities issued by the U.S. Government, its agencies and instrumentalities, as well as other entities such as foreign governments or corporations. Inflation protected or adjusted fixed income securities are structured to provide protection against inflation by directly or indirectly adjusting the value of the bond's principal or the interest income paid based on changes in the official inflation measures reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Foreign inflation protected securities are adjusted using a comparable statistic issued by the respective government. Up to 20% of the Portfolio's assets may be invested in fixed income securities that are not inflation indexed, including unrated or below investment-grade bonds ("high yield" or "junk" bonds), convertible debt securities, convertible preferred and preferred stocks, or other securities. The Portfolio employs an active trading strategy.

Investment Risk

Investment in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal invested. You could lose money on your investment in the Portfolio or the Portfolio could underperform because of the following risks: the market prices of bonds held by the Portfolio may fall; individual investments of the Portfolio may not perform as expected; and/or the Portfolio's portfolio management practices may not achieve the desired result. Bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and credit risk. When interest rates rise, the value of fixed-income securities will generally fall. In addition, the credit quality of the securities may deteriorate, which could lead to default or bankruptcy of the issuer where the issuer becomes unable to pay its obligations when due. Inflation protected fixed income securities do not protect against changes in interest rates to the extent such changes are not attributable to inflation.

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.

Standard Deviation is a measure of a fund's risk. A standard deviation of 1 means a fund can be expected to produce an annual return that is +/-1% of its average annual return 66% of the time.
Alpha is a measure of the difference between a fund's actual returns and its expected performance, given its level of risk as measured by beta.
Beta is a measure of portfolio risk relative to the market or benchmark. A portfolio beta of 1.0 indicates a risk level equal to that of the fund's benchmark.
Excess Return is return in excess of the risk-free rate or in excess of a benchmark.
R Squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund's movements that can be explained by movements in its benchmark index.
Tracking Error is the difference in the return earned by a portfolio and the return earned by the benchmark against which the portfolio is constructed.
Information Ratio is a measure of the consistency of excess return of a mutual fund as compared to its benchmark.
Sharpe Ratio is used to measure risk-adjusted performance. It is calculated by using standard deviation and return in excess of the benchmark to determine reward per unit of risk.

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.
