How we invest your money
The Fund seeks to track a bond index by matching the distribution of the risk and return factors of the index. The tracking is accomplished through "stratified sampling which involves breaking the Index into "cells of securities that have similar risk and return factors and then building a portfolio to match the risk characteristics of each of these cells. The factors considered are interest-rate risk, credit risk and specific (security) risk.
