The Short Duration Income Fund is a bond fund with an investment objective of generating current income consistent with preserving capital. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets in debt securities, which may include U.S. Government and agency securities, corporate bonds, mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities and securities issued by foreign governments.  The Fund may invest up to 15% of its total assets in debt securities which are non-investment grade or unrated.  The Fund may also invest in derivative instruments.  The Fund may also invest in common stocks, preferred stocks and securities convertible into stocks.

Effective December 16, 2016, the Short Duration Income Fund expects to manage its portfolio to have an average effective duration of between one and 3½ years.
