This fund is non-diversified, which means it may invest a greater proportion of its assets in the securities of a smaller number of issuers than a diversified fund and may therefore be subject to greater volatility. Exposure to commodity markets should only form a small part of a diversified portfolio. Investment in commodity markets may not be suitable for all investors. The fund's investment in commodity-linked derivative instruments may subject the fund to greater volatility than investment in traditional securities.

The fund offers investors easy access to the broad commodity markets, currently by investing in a combination of commodity-linked structured notes and swaps. The fund has obtained a private letter ruling from the IRS confirming that the income produced by certain types of structured notes constitutes "qualifying income" under the IRS Code of 1986, as amended.

The fund is designed to achieve positive total return relative to the performance of the Bloomberg Commodity Index Total Return.

The fund invests in commodity-linked derivative instruments, such as commodity-linked notes, that provide exposure to the investment returns of the commodities markets without investing directly in physical commodities.

The fund also intends to gain exposure to commodities markets by investing in the Subsidiary, which in turn invests in commodity-linked swap agreements and other commodity-linked derivative instruments, and by investing directly in commodity-linked structured notes. These investments will be linked to the Bloomberg Commodity Index, other commodity indices or the value of a particular commodity or commodity futures contract or subset of commodities or commodity futures contracts.
