  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks long-term total return using a strategy that seeks to protect against U.S. inflation.
The fund invests substantially all of its assets in investment-grade debt securities. To help protect against U.S. inflation, under normal conditions the fund will invest over 50% of its assets in inflation-indexed debt securities. It also may invest in debt securities that are not inflation-indexed. The fund also may invest in derivative instruments, provided that such investments are in keeping with the fund's investment objective.
  Morningstar Category: Inflation-Protected Bond
Inflation-protected bond portfolios invest primarily in debt securities that adjust their principal values in line with the rate of inflation. These bonds can be issued by any organization, but the U.S. Treasury is currently the largest issuer for these types of securities. 
  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.
