Fund Investment Objective & Strategy
The Portfolio seeks a high total investment return by investing in a global portfolio of investment grade, fixed income securities. Non-U.S. dollar denominated positions may be hedged into U.S. dollars in an effort to minimize the risks of currency fluctuations. In evaluating securities, the Investment Manager will utilize its internal credit analysis resources as well as financial and economic information obtained from other sources.
Key Risks
Risk in investing in financial derivative instruments: The Portfolio is entitled to use derivative instruments for hedging and efficient portfolio management purposes which may involve additional risks. In adverse situations, the Portfolio's use of derivative instruments may become ineffective in hedging or efficient portfolio management and the Portfolio may suffer significant losses. Credit Risks - General: The Portfolio will invest in fixed-income securities (including bonds) issued by companies and other entities and the Portfolio will be subject to the risk that a particular issuer may not fulfill its payment or other obligations in respect of such fixed-income securities. Credit Risk – Downgrading Risk: The Portfolio will invest in fixed-income securities (including bonds). An issuer of such fixed-income securities may experience an adverse change in its financial condition which may in turn result in a decrease in the credit rating assigned by an internationally recognized statistical ratings organization to such issuer and fixed-income securities issued by such issuer. Credit ratings of fixedincome securities reflect the issuer's ability to make timely payments of interest or principal—the lower the rating, the higher the risk of default. The adverse change in financial condition or decrease in credit rating(s) of issuer may result in increased volatility in, and adverse impact on, the price of the relevant fixed-income security and negatively affect liquidity, making any such fixed-income security more difficult to sell. Credit Risk - Sovereign Debt Obligations: The Portfolio will be exposed to the direct or indirect consequences of political, social and economic changes in various countries by investing in the bonds of governmental entities. These political, social and economic changes in a particular country may affect a particular government's willingness or ability to make timely payment of interest or principal - these factors will in turn affect the issuer's credit rating and the bond's value may decline. Fixed Income Securities Risk - Interest Rate: As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall and vice versa. Prices of longer-term securities tend to rise and fall more than shortterm securities. Fixed Income Securities Risk - General: The Portfolio will invest in fixed-income securities where their value will change in response to fluctations in interest rates and currency exchange rates, as well as changes in credit quality of the issuer. Country Risk - General: Investments in issuers located in a particular country or geographic region may have more risk because of particular market factors affecting that country or region, including political instability or unpredictable economic conditions.
