Fund Overview
Aims to consistently outperform the S&P 500 Index

The Lipper-award-winning strategy aims to outperform the S&P 500 Index by investing in equity-linked instruments designed to replicate the returns of the S&P 500, plus an additional, complementary source of alpha potential.


Why Invest In This Fund
An alternative to traditional passive and active equity investing

Traditional index funds aim to match the performance of a market index by investing in all, or a representative sample, of the stocks in the index. The fund goes further, combining passive exposure to the S&P 500 Index with additional return and diversification potential provided by a complementary bond alpha strategy. This unique approach allows the fund to retain key attributes of passive equity indexing, while also seeking to deliver meaningful market outperformance.


Increased return potential

As the fund gains full exposure to the S&P 500 Index using equity-linked instruments at a money market-based cost, the goal of the bond alpha strategy is to outperform this cost thereby allowing the fund to provide the returns of the S&P 500 Index "PLUS" additional alpha and diversification potential.

A word about risk:
Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including market, interest-rate, issuer, credit, and inflation risk; investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and political risks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. Mortgage and asset-backed securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, subject to early repayment risk, and their value may fluctuate in response to the market’s perception of issuer creditworthiness; while generally supported by some form of government or private guarantee there is no assurance that private guarantors will meet their obligations. High-yield, lower-rated, securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic, and industry conditions. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Diversification does not ensure against loss.

Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. For funds with at least a 3-yr history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees) with an emphasis on downward variations and consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating is a weighted average of the performance figures for its 3-, 5- and 10-yr (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar, Inc.® 2015. All rights reserved.
