Investment approach: The portfolio manager employs a systematic investment approach informed by fundamental and quantitative research, to actively manage a portfolio of securities with exposure to foreign currencies. The process begins with a multifaceted analysis of several key drivers of foreign currency price movements. The manager applies the results of the analysis to a number of qualitative and quantitative investment strategies to select a broad and diversified basket of currencies that may be poised to appreciate against the U.S. dollar.  The Strategy may also have negative exposure to foreign currencies that are expected to depreciate against the U.S. dollar, while remaining invested in the currency market.

Special Risks: Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the Fund's share prices can fall. Below-investment-grade ("high yield" or "junk") bonds are more at risk of default and are subject to liquidity risk. Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Derivative instruments whose values depend on the performance of an underlying security, asset, interest rate, index or currency, entail potentially higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments. Currency derivative investments may be particularly volatile and involve significant risks. The Fund may invest a significant portion of assets in a single issuer, which may increase volatility and exposure to risks associated with a single issuer. Commodity-linked investments are considered speculative and have substantial risks, including the risk of loss of a significant portion of their principal value. The Fund may also invest through a wholly-owned Cayman Islands subsidiary, which is subject to the laws of the Cayman Islands and involves the risk that changes to those laws could negatively affect the Fund.
