To manage against capital risk while generating income and pursuing long-term capital growth.
A blend of qualitative and quantitative investment analysis, as well as an active, top-down asset allocation approach is used to create a globally diversified, multi-asset class portfolio consisting of affiliated mutual funds.
Stock exposure can range from 35% - 65%, and is focused on income oriented securities (such as dividend-paying/high free cash flow companies) as well as real estate securities (such as REITs - real estate investment trusts) with the potential for exposure, to a lesser degree, in emerging markets and companies that we believe are positioned to benefit from higher prices in an inflationary environment.
Bond exposure can range from 35% - 65%, and is focused on investment grade bonds, with exposure to a somewhat lesser degree in high yield bonds. Sector exposure can vary, with the flexibility to build concentrated exposure across fixed income sectors based on market conditions.
This Series is designed to meet investor’s income needs by addressing today’s environment and allowing for the flexibility to adjust to tomorrow’s market conditions. Strategic Income Moderate Series aims to provide income over time by way of a meaningful exposure to income-oriented equity securities. Additionally, the portfolio includes a notable allocation to fixed income in an effort to enhance income generation and provide some stability.
All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. An investment in the Series will fluctuate in response to stock market movements and changes in interest rates. Because the Series invests in a combination of other affiliated funds, it is subject to asset allocation risk as well as the risks associated with each underlying fund’s investment portfolio. These may include the risk that dividends may be discontinued or decreased; small-cap/mid-cap risk, including the risk that stocks of small- and mid-cap companies may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements than the stocks of larger companies and may be less marketable than the stocks of larger companies; risks related to investments in options, which, like all derivatives, can be highly volatile and involve risks in addition to the risks of the underlying instrument on which the derivative is based, such as counterparty, correlation and liquidity risk; risks related to the direct ownership of real estate (including REITs) such as interest rate risk, liquidity risk, and changes in property value, among others; foreign investment risk, including fluctuating currency values, different accounting standards, and economic and political instability, as well as the risk that investments in emerging markets may be more volatile than investments in developed markets; issuer-specific risk; and the increased default risk associated with higher-yielding, lower-rated securities. There is an inverse relationship between bond prices and interest rates; as interest rates rise, bond prices (and therefore the value of bond funds) fall. Likewise, as interest rates fall, bond prices and the value of bond funds rise. Additionally, a portion of the Series’ underlying holdings may be invested in business development companies (BDCs) or master limited partnerships (MLPs). BDCs are subject to additional risks, as they generally invest in less mature private companies or thinly traded U.S. public companies which involve greater risk than well-established publicly-traded companies. MLPs are subject to additional risks, including, risks associated with the specific industry or industries in which the partnership invests, such as the risks of investing in real estate, or oil and gas industries or other natural resources. Moreover, the potential tax benefits from investing in MLPs depend on their continued treatment as partnerships for federal income tax purposes.
