Seeks to provide current income to the portfolio and potential for that income to grow over time primarily through investments in equity securities, with fixed income instruments used to supplement income and modestly dampen portfolio volatility.
The portfolio’s 7-10 year investment horizon typically results in an investment strategy concentrated in equity securities across multiple asset classes, including international equity securities (both developed and emerging market) and fixed income investments offering income and the potential to diversify some of the portfolio's equity investment risks. The portfolio is constructed by our asset allocation, security selection, and risk management processes.
All investments in securities, including this portfolio, include a risk of loss of principal (invested amount) and any profits that have not been realized. Performance of any investment is not guaranteed. Markets fluctuate substantially over time, and have experienced increased volatility in recent years due to global and domestic economic events. Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. In a rising interest rate environment, the value of fixed-income securities generally declines. Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss. Investments in international and emerging markets securities include exposure to risks such as currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and regulations, and the potential for illiquid markets and political instability.
