The Fund mainly invests in high quality, U.S. dollar-denominated short-term fixed and floating rate debt securities. Floating and variable rate securities may be subject to greater liquidity risk than other debt securities, meaning that there may be limitations on the Fund's ability to sell the securities at any given time. Such securities also may lose value. The Fund's fixed income securities are subject to interest rate risk. If rates increase, the value of the Fund's investments generally declines. The Fund may invest in mortgage-related and asset-backed securities that may or may not be guaranteed by governments and their agencies, supranational organizations, corporations, or banks. The value of these assets will be influenced by factors affecting the assets underlying such securities. During periods of declining asset values, the asset-backed securities may decline in value. Because the Fund may invest a significant portion of its assets in securities of companies in the banking industry, developments affecting the banking industry may have a disproportionate impact on the Fund. Under normal conditions, the Fund will invest more than 25% of its assets in securities issued by companies in the banking industry.
