Seeks long-term total return.
The value and/or returns of a portfolio will fluctuate with market and economic conditions. The fund's investments in fixed income securities are subject to the risks associated with debt securities including credit, price and interest rate risk. Generally, as interest rates rise, the value of the securities held in the fund will decline. The opposite is true when interest rates decline. International investing involves special risk considerations, including economic and political conditions, inflation rates and currency fluctuations. Diversification does not assure a profit nor does it protect against loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the investment objectives will be met. Dividends and yields represent past performance and there is no guarantee that they will continue to be paid.
