Choose another fund:

Investment Objective

The Fund seeks total return.

Investment Strategy

The Diversified Alternatives Fund is a “fund of funds” that seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in underlying funds (the “Underlying Funds”) and, to a limited extent, in direct investments, such as exchange-traded notes (“ETNs”). The Fund intends to allocate and reallocate its assets among a range of non-traditional or alternative asset classes in a flexible and dynamic way to capture return from such non-traditional or alternative sources.

Risk Considerations

The Fund is subject to different levels and combinations of risk, based on its actual allocation among the various asset classes and underlying funds. The Fund will be affected by stock and bond market risks, among others.

Foreign securities are more volatile, harder to price and less liquid than U.S. securities; and are subject to different accounting and regulatory standards, and political and economic risks. These risks are enhanced in emerging markets countries. The Fund’s investments in high-yield bonds may subject the Fund to substantial risk of loss.

The Fund invests a significant proportion of its assets in non-traditional asset classes, which may involve riskier types of securities or investments than those offered by other asset classes.

Please read the prospectus for more detailed information regarding these risks.
