Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets in securities issued by the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA). GNMA certificates represent interests in pools of mortgage loans and in the cash flows from these loans. To generate additional income, the fund may purchase securities, including mortgage dollar rolls, in advance through when-issued and forward commitment transactions.
