Fund Overview

Anchor your portfolio with a solid core

Similar to the Total Return Strategy, which launched in 1987, the fund aims to provide investors with a combination of income, capital appreciation and preservation potential.

Why Invest In This Fund

Quality, diversification, flexibility

The fund emphasizes higher quality, intermediate-term bonds and aims to avoid concentrated risk exposure by being globally diversified. While it can invest in a broad array of sectors and instruments, it does comply with certain limits on interest rate exposure, credit risk and derivative usage.

Strong long-term returns

Since inception, the fund has helped anchor investors’ portfolios as a true core bond holding. Its flexibility and risk-focused approach have helped it deliver positive returns across varying market and interest rate environments.

A risk-focused approach

Unlike funds that simply seek the highest yield, the fund aims to provide investors with a combination of income and capital appreciation potential. It is guided by a forward-looking, risk-focused philosophy that aims to identify risk early while also being positioned to capture attractive returns.
