The fund offers long-term capital appreciation potential and income by investing in a combination of stocks, bonds, and money market securities. 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 income provided by the bond portion can help cushion changes in stock prices.
Since the majority of the portfolio is invested in stocks, the primary risk is declining share prices; the bond portion will be subject to interest rate and credit risk.
