Sub-Advised by: Wilshire Associates Incorporated


The Fund seeks to provide investors with growth and income.

Investment Style

  • This 'fund of funds' primarily invests in a diversified portfolio of underlying equity, fixed income and alternative funds. These underlying funds, in turn, invest in a variety of U.S. and foreign securities
  • The Fund will allocate a significant portion of its assets to underlying funds utilizing alternative or nontraditional investment strategies
  • The majority of the underlying funds in which the Fund invests will be affiliated funds; however the Fund has the ability to invest in unaffiliated underlying funds
  • The Fund's sub-advisor seeks to develop an optimal model allocation among underlying funds in accordance with these principles:
    • Controlled Growth - seeks growth through lower volatility and equities as well as alternative strategy exposure
    • Low Volatility - seeks lower duration and lower bond correlation
    • Attractive Income - seeks higher yielding debt to produce attractive income
  • Under normal circumstances, the Fund expects to allocate its assets among equity and fixed income funds as follows: Equity Fund Allocation: 0-25%; Fixed Income Fund Allocation: 25-50%; Alternative Fund Allocation 50-75%
The value of an investment in the Fund is based on the performance of the underlying funds in which it invests and the allocation of its assets among those funds. The Fund bears a proportionate amount of the expenses charged by the underlying funds. The Fund's ability to achieve its investment goal depends upon the sub-advisor's skill in selecting the best mix of underlying funds. The principal risks of an investment in the Fund include the principal risks of investing in the underlying funds in addition to those of the Fund. The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in foreign securities, foreign depositary receipts and emerging markets securities which carry the associated risks of economic and political instability, market liquidity, currency volatility and differences in accounting standards. The Fund invests in debt securities which can lose their value as interest rates rise and are subject to credit risk which is the risk of deterioration in the financial condition of an issuer and/or general economic conditions that can cause the issuer to not make timely payments of principal and interest also causing the securities to decline in value and an investor can lose principal. The Fund invests in non-investment grade debt securities which are considered speculative with respect to the issuers' ability to make timely payments of interest and principal, may lack liquidity and has had more frequent and larger price changes than other debt securities. The Fund invests in derivatives which may expose the Fund to additional risk than directly investing in securities and may lack a liquid market, are subject to counterparty risk and leverage risk which could result in increased volatility of returns as well as losses. Liquidity risk may exist when particular investments are difficult to purchase or sell, which can reduce an underlying fund's return. Leverage can create an interest expense that may lower the Fund's overall returns. There can be no guarantee that a leveraging strategy will be successful. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The advisor engages the sub-advisor to manage the Fund's portfolio; the sub-advisor's judgment may impact the Fund's performance.
