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 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.
