Focus: This Strategy typically invests in investment-grade fixed income instruments, while seeking to maintain a weighted average effective portfolio duration between 1 and 3.5 years.


Peter Strzalkowski, CFA
Portfolio Manager
Managed fund since 4/09


The portfolio manager employs "top-down," or global macroeconomic analysis of the fixed income markets, then sets strategic targets to guide decisions on interest rate sensitivity and sector allocations.  The manager then pairs these targets with "bottom-up," or security-by-security, fundamental research to make individual investment decisions and help manage risks within each bond sector.

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. May invest up to 35% in below-investment-grade ("high yield" or "junk") bonds, which are more at risk of default and are subject to liquidity risk. Asset-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk. Mortgage bonds are susceptible to risks such as default and prepayment of principal and are taxable at the state and federal levels. The timely payment of interest and principal on U.S. Treasury securities is guaranteed by the U.S. Government and interest in those securities is only taxable at the federal level. The government guarantee does not eliminate market risk, however, because it does not cover any decrease in the market value of U.S. treasury securities. It is important to note that longer maturity bonds have greater volatility and risk when compared to shorter maturity bonds. 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. 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.
