The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets in long and short positions in credit-related instruments. For purposes of this 80% requirement, credit-related instruments will include any type of fixed-income security, such as corporate bonds, convertible fixed-income securities, preferred stocks, U.S. government and agency securities, securities of foreign governments and supranational entities, mortgage-related and asset-backed securities, and loan participations. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to provide current income and capital growth.
The fund invests primarily in a portfolio of debt securities including corporate bonds and debentures (including high yield bonds commonly known as "junk bonds"), bank loans, convertible and preferred securities, credit default swaps and other debt instruments and derivatives that the fund's investment adviser believes have debt-like characteristics. It invests in both domestic and foreign debt securities. The principal types of derivatives in which the fund may invest are credit default swaps, interest rate swaps, total return swaps, futures and options.
