In a single offering, the fund offers, global diversification across asset classes and regions of the world, tactical views expressed through portfolio reallocations, and bottom up security selection to create an actively managed global portfolio.
The fund is subject to the unique risks of international investing, including unfavorable currency exchange rates, political or economic uncertainty abroad, or abrupt and severe price declines. These risks are heightened for investments in emerging markets. The portfolio’s investments in alternative investments and hedge funds are difficult to value and monitor when compared with more traditional investments, and may increase the fund’s liquidity risks. Diversification cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market. Derivatives are used in the fund for selective market exposures.
The fund could be an appropriate part of your overall investment strategy if you want to diversify your portfolio by adding a fund with investments in both international and domestic stocks and bonds and you are comfortable with the risks that accompany international investments (including the special risks associated with investing in emerging markets). The fund can be used in both regular and tax-deferred accounts, such as IRAs.
