Fund Description

The fund will invest in a diversified portfolio of debt and equity securities and, to a lesser extent, alternative strategies. It may shift its investments from one asset class to another based on the investment manager’s analysis of the best opportunities for the fund’s portfolio in a given market. In addition, under normal market conditions, at least 40% of the fund’s net assets are invested in non-U.S. investments and in at least three different countries, either directly or through depositary receipts, including in emerging markets.
