The investment seeks current income and, to the extent consistent with this goal, capital appreciation. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in fixed income securities. Its investments in fixed income securities consist primarily of fixed rate and variable rate corporate debt obligations, debt obligations of the U.S. government and its agencies, bank obligations, commercial paper, repurchase agreements and Eurodollar obligations.
