Description

Fund Objective
The fund has two primary investment objectives. It seeks (1) to provide a level of current income that exceeds the average yield on U.S. stocks generally and (2) to provide a growing stream of income over the years. The fund's secondary objective is to provide growth of capital.
Distinguishing Characteristics
This globally diversified strategy focuses on prudently generating a growing stream of income that exceeds the yield paid by U.S. companies in general. This flexible equity-income strategy uses a mix of stocks and bonds in pursuit of its income objective, which has historically led to equity-like returns with relatively less volatility than global markets and better downside resilience versus the MSCI ACWI.
Types of Investments
Normally, at least 50% of assets will be invested in common stocks of large, established companies with proven records of increasing dividends. May also invest in preferred stocks, convertibles, bonds and cash.
Holdings Outside the U.S.
May invest up to 50% of assets outside the U.S.
Portfolio Restrictions
Normally, at least 90% of the fund's portfolio will be invested in income-producing securities.
