Summary

The investment seeks total return. The fund invests in commodity-linked derivative instruments backed by a portfolio of fixed income instruments. It invests in commodity-linked derivative instruments (a contract whose value is based on a particular commodity), such as commodity-linked swap contracts, commodity-linked structured notes, options and futures contracts, to gain exposure to the investment return of assets that trade in the commodity markets, without investing directly in physical commodities. The fund may gain exposure to the commodity markets by investing up to 25% of the fund's total assets in a wholly-owned subsidiary.
