    Fund Summary 
    The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation and growth of income. 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 select fixed income securities and 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.
