  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks capital appreciation; income is a secondary objective.
The fund seeks to achieve its investment goals by allocating its assets among the broad asset classes of equity and fixed income investments through a variety of investment strategies or "sleeves" managed by the investment manager or its affiliates. Under normal market conditions, it allocates approximately 60% of its assets to the equity asset class and 40% of its assets to the fixed income asset class by allocating the fund's assets among the various sleeves.
  Morningstar Category: Moderate Allocation
Funds in allocation categories seek to provide both income and capital appreciation by primarily investing in multiple asset classes, including stocks, bonds, and cash. These moderate strategies seek to balance preservation of capital with appreciation. They typically expect volatility similar to a strategic equity exposure between 50% and 70%. 
  Investment Risks
There are no additional fund specific investment risks (e.g. liquidity risk, currency risk, foreign investment risk, etc.) associated with this fund beyond the normal risks generally associated with investing in a mutual fund.
