Overview

Fund Overview

A differentiated approach to asset allocation targeting strong after-inflation returns

By focusing on out of mainstream asset classes and a value-oriented, contrarian investment process, this fund may help investors enhance their long-term return potential while also improving portfolio diversification, reducing volatility and adding an explicit inflation buffer.

Why Invest In This Fund

Long-term return potential

By emphasizing assets that are fundamentally attractive and shifting away from popular asset classes when they are overvalued, the fund is managed in an effort to achieve high real returns (returns above inflation), consistent with its secondary benchmark of CPI +5% over a full market cycle.

Diversification from traditional stocks and bonds

The fund’s access to a global opportunity set may help it achieve its long-term return goals with more attractive diversification characteristics and reduced loss potential than portfolios which rely on mainstream stocks to drive portfolio growth.

Inflation protection

The strategy seeks to combat the effects of inflation through its focus on diversifying “satellite” investments including emerging market bonds and stocks, alternative investments and inflation-related assets which can have a greater responsiveness to rising inflation than mainstream stocks and bonds.

Asset allocations decisions are managed by its subadvisor, Research Affiliates, LLC, a leading tactical asset allocation firm founded by Robert Arnott.

1The distribution yield for monthly paying Funds is calculated by annualizing actual dividends distributed for the monthly period ended on the date shown and dividing by the net asset value on the last business day for the same period. The distribution yield for quarterly paying Funds is calculated by taking the average of the prior four quarterly distribution yields. The quarterly distribution yields are calculated by annualizing actual dividends distributed for the quarterly period ended on the most recent quarterly distribution date and dividing by the net asset value for the same date. The distribution yield for annual paying Funds is calculated by taking the annual distribution divided by the Fund’s net asset value on ex-date. The yield is annualized if the Fund incepted less than a year ago. The yield does not include long- or short-term capital gains distributions.
2The Subsidized yield includes contractual expense reimbursements and it would be lower without those reimbursements. The Unsubsidized 30 Day SEC yield excludes contractual expense reimbursements.
3Data does not include special cash dividends.
4Data is based on distributions since the most recent calendar year end and does not include special cash dividends.
The 30 day SEC Yield is computed under an SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days.

Performance quoted represents past performance and is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. Investment return and the principal value of an investment will fluctuate. Shares may be worth more or less than original cost when redeemed. Current performance may be lower or higher than average annual returns shown. The maximum offering price (MOP) returns take into account the contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) for Class C shares, which for this fund is 1.00%. This charge may apply to shares redeemed during the first year of ownership.

Differences in the Fund’s performance versus the index and related attribution information with respect to particular categories of securities or individual positions may be attributable, in part, to differences in the pricing methodologies used by the Fund and the index.

There is no assurance that any fund, including any fund that has experienced high or unusual performance for one or more periods, will experience similar levels of performance in the future. High performance is defined as a significant increase in either 1) a fund’s total return in excess of that of the fund’s benchmark between reporting periods or 2) a fund’s total return in excess of the fund’s historical returns between reporting periods. Unusual performance is defined as a significant change in a fund’s performance as compared to one or more previous reporting periods.

disclosures

Performance figures presented reflect the total return performance after fees and reflect changes in share price and reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions on the payable date. All periods longer than one year are annualized.
The inception date provided is for the Fund’s oldest share class, the Institutional Class. The returns presented are for Class C shares, which were first offered in 4/03. Returns measure performance from the inception of the oldest share class to the present, so some returns predate the inception of Class C. Those returns are calculated by adjusting the Institutional returns to reflect the C shares' different charges and expenses. Total return performance does not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on fund distributions or the redemption of fund shares.
Daily YTD return is from the most recent calendar year end.
Growth of $10,000 is calculated at NAV and assumes that all dividend and capital gain distributions were reinvested. It does not take into account sales charges or the effect of taxes. Results are not indicative of future performance.

Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

The Lipper Category returns and rankings are calculated by Lipper Inc., a Reuters Company, which is a nationally recognized organization that compares the performance of mutual funds with similar investment objectives. The Category returns represent the average performance of included funds, while rankings compare an individual fund's returns to those of the other funds in its category. Both are based on total return performance, with capital gains and dividends reinvested, with annual operating expenses deducted, but without including front- or back-end sales charges. Rankings begin with the actual share class inception. Rankings are relative to a peer group and do not necessarily mean that the fund had high total returns.
