Investment Objective The investment seeks to track the performance of an index of extended-duration zero-coupon U.S. Treasury securities. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Treasury STRIPS 20-30 Year Equal Par Bond Index. This index includes zero-coupon U.S. Treasury securities (Treasury STRIPS)- which are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government- with maturities ranging from 20 to 30 years. The fund invests by sampling the index. At least 80% of the fund's assets will be invested in U.S. Treasury securities held in the index.
