How it works

The fund invests in investment grade debt instruments such as, without limitation, bonds, commercial paper, bank and corporate debt. The fund will generally maintain an average duration of its investments to three years or less. This debt is issued by governments, other public bodies and companies from developed countries and, at the time of purchase, this debt is generally rated at least BBB- or Baa3 by the major rating agencies. In addition to investment grade instruments, the fund may invest in unrated instruments which are deemed to be of similar quality. The fund will purchase debt in various currencies. The fund will use financial contracts or instruments (derivatives) to manage its exposure to these currencies in an attempt to protect returns against exchange rate fluctuations.

This fund is managed by Dimensional.
