Seeks total return that exceeds the rate of inflation as measured in the US over the long term, measured in US dollars. Primarily invests in inflation-adjusted US Treasury securities but may also invest in inflation-adjusted debt instruments issued by other US and foreign government and corporate entities, and non-inflation-adjusted debt instruments.
