    Fund Summary

    The investment seeks high current income with preservation of capital as its secondary objective. The fund invests mainly in bonds and securitized debt instruments (such as mortgage-backed investments) that are obligations of the U.S. government, its agencies and instrumentalities and accordingly are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States (e.g., U.S. Treasury bonds and Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed bonds) or by only the credit of a federal agency or government-sponsored entity; and that have short- to long-term maturities. It may also use derivatives, such as futures, options and swap contracts, for both hedging and non-hedging purposes. View More
