Fund Overview
Higher income potential than traditional cash investments

Yields remain compressed, making it difficult for investors to obtain high quality income without moving beyond their risk tolerance. The fund seeks higher income potential than traditional cash investments, with less volatility than typical short-term bond strategies.


Why Invest In This Fund
High quality portfolio

An actively managed enhanced cash strategy that seeks to dynamically manage risk and liquidity, the fund invests in both high quality money market instruments and a wide range of non-money-market securities such as U.S. Treasury and Agency securities, investment grade credit and high quality structured credit.


Conservative guidelines

The fund’s conservative investment guidelines prohibit investing in high yield securities and limits exposure to other fixed income sectors, which may increase volatility in periods of financial stress. In an effort to minimize total portfolio volatility, the fund’s mandate allows for limited use of derivatives.

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. Entering into short sales includes the potential for loss of more money than the actual cost of the investment, and the risk that the third party to the short sale may fail to honor its contract terms, causing a loss to the portfolio. 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.

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.

Hollow stars represent a class of shares with inception dates that is different than the inception date of the fund. For the period prior to the inception date of these shares, performance information is based on the performance of the fund’s Institutional Class shares, adjusted to reflect the actual distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees and other expenses paid by the newer share class.
