Investment Objective The investment seeks to provide inflation protection and income consistent with investment in inflation-indexed securities. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in inflation-indexed bonds issued by the U.S. government- its agencies and instrumentalities- and corporations. It may invest in bonds of any maturity; however- its dollar-weighted average maturity is expected to be in the range of 7 to 20 years. At a minimum- all bonds purchased by the fund will be rated investment-grade or- if unrated- will be considered by the advisor to be investment-grade.
