Fund Snapshot

While many short-duration funds are anchored in government securities as core investments, our focus is on corporate securities.

  • Attractive Yields: In exchange for slightly greater risk, corporate bonds provide higher income than U.S. Treasuries of comparable maturity.
  • Opportunity: Corporate bonds offer a wide range of income opportunities in fixed-rate, floating-rate, high-quality, low-quality, domestic, and international markets.
  • Diversification: Corporate bonds may add diversification to a fixed-income portfolio of government, mortgage-backed, or other fixed-income securities.

About Principal Risks

All investing involves risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its investment goal. Corporate bonds are subject to issue risk in that their value may decline for reasons directly related to the issuer of the security. Not all U.S. government securities are checked or guaranteed by the U.S. government, and different government securities are subject to varying degrees of credit risk. Mortgage-related and other asset-backed securities are subject to certain rules affecting the housing market or the market for the assets underlying such securities. The Fund is subject to liquidity risk (the risk that an investment may be difficult to purchase, value, and sell particularly during adverse market conditions, because there is a limited market for the investment, or there are restrictions on resale) and credit risk (the risk an issuer may be unable or unwilling to meet its financial obligations, risking default). High-yield/high-risk bonds (“junk bonds”) and floating-rate loans (usually rated below investment grade) have greater risk of default than higher-rated securities/higher-quality bonds that may have a lower yield. The Fund is also subject to foreign-markets risk.
