Investment Objective The investment seeks current income while maintaining limited price volatility. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in short-term bonds issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government and its agencies and instrumentalities- many of which are not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. It is expected to maintain a dollar-weighted average maturity of 1 to 4 years.
