Strategy And Objective

The fund seeks real return consistent with reasonable investment risk.The Adviser defines real return as total return reduced by the expected impact of inflation. In seeking real return,the Adviser expects to allocate the fund's assets among four general investment categories: inflation-protected debt securities,floating rate loans,commodity-linked derivative instruments and related investments,and REITs and other real estate related investments.The fund's neutral mix,or the benchmark for its combination of investments in each category over time,is approximately 30% inflation-protected debt securities,25% floating rate loans,25% commodity-linked derivative instruments and related investments,and 20% REITs and other real estate related investments.The Adviser regularly reviews the fund's allocation and makes changes gradually over time to favor investments that it believes provide the most favorable outlook for achieving the fund's objective.By allocating investments across different types of securities,the Adviser attempts to moderate the significantrisks of each category through diversification. For purposes of these allocations, the Adviser will include the fund's investmentsin master limited partnerships (MLPs) in the commodity-linked derivative instruments and related investments category.The floating rate loan category includes floating rate loans,many of which are lower-quality debt securities (those of less than investment-grade quality, also referred to as high yield debt securities or junk bonds), and other floating rate securities such asmoney market securities, repurchase agreements, and shares of money market and short-term bond funds.The inflation-protected debt category is a passively managed investment strategy attempting to track the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) Index (Series-L). The index is composed of inflation-protected debt securities issued by the U.S.Treasury. The Adviser may use statistical sampling techniques to attempt to replicate the returns of the index using a smaller number of securities.Statistical sampling techniques attempt to match the investment characteristics of the index and the fund bytaking into account such factors as duration, maturity, interest rate sensitivity, security structure,and credit quality.Thecommodity-linked derivative instruments and related investments category includes commodity-linked notes,other commodity-linked derivative instruments,such as commodity futures and swaps,and commodity-related equity securities that seek to outperform the performance of an index chosen by the Adviser to represent the commodities market,as well as short-term investment-grade debt securities.As of September 30, 2019,the Adviser was using the Bloomberg Commodity Index Total Return to represent the commodities market.
