    Fund Summary 
    The investment seeks current income and capital growth. The fund is a "fund-of-funds" that invests principally in affiliated mutual funds managed by Lord, Abbett & Co. LLC (the "underlying funds"). Under normal conditions, through the underlying funds, it indirectly invests principally in U.S. equity securities and fixed income securities and select foreign (including emerging market) securities. The fund uses a "blend" strategy to gain investment exposure to both growth and value stocks, or to stocks with characteristics of both.
