The fund focuses primarily on income and, secondarily, on capital growth; it offers the lowest risk/reward ratio of the Personal Strategy Funds. The common stock portion of the portfolio has the potential to grow faster than inflation over the long term to help protect purchasing power, while the bond portion can help cushion changes in stock prices. The manager can rebalance the investment mix, within defined ranges, based on the economic outlook, interest rates, and financial markets.
Investing equally in stocks and bonds, the fund carries the same risks as its counterparts, albeit to a lesser degree, while money-market securities help provide stability.
