The Two-Year Global Fixed Income Portfolio is a no-load mutual fund designed to maximize total returns consistent with preservation of capital. The portfolio generally invests in a universe of US and foreign debt securities maturing in two years or less. As of the date of the prospectus, most investments are made in obligations of issuers that are in developed countries, but investing in issuers located in other countries may be added in the future. The fixed income securities in which the portfolio invests are considered investment grade at the time of purchase. The portfolio will also enter into forward foreign currency contracts to attempt to protect against uncertainty in the level of future foreign currency rates, to hedge against fluctuations in currency exchange rates or to transfer balances from one currency to another. The portfolio may use derivatives, such as futures contracts and options on futures contracts, to gain market exposure on its uninvested cash pending investment in securities or to maintain liquidity to pay redemptions.

Market Risk
Even a long-term investment approach cannot guarantee a profit. Economic, political, and issuer-specific events will cause the value of securities, and the funds that own them, to rise or fall. Because the value of your investment in a fund will fluctuate, there is a risk that you will lose money.

Foreign Securities and Currencies Risk
Foreign securities prices may decline or fluctuate because of: (a) economic or political actions of foreign governments, and/or (b) less regulated or liquid securities markets. Investors holding these securities are also exposed to foreign currency risk (the possibility that foreign currency will fluctuate in value against the US dollar).

Interest Rate Risk
Fixed income securities are subject to interest rate risk because the prices of fixed income securities tend to move in the opposite direction of interest rates. In general, fixed income securities with longer maturities are more sensitive to these price changes.

Credit Risk
Credit risk is the risk that the issuer of a security may be unable to make interest payments and/or repay principal when due. A downgrade to an issuer's credit rating or a perceived change in an issuer's financial strength may affect a security's value, and thus, impact a fund's performance. Credit risk is greater for fixed income securities with ratings below investment grade. Fixed income securities that are below investment grade involve high credit risk and are considered speculative. Below-investment grade fixed income securities may also fluctuate in value more than higher-quality fixed income securities.

Risk of Banking Concentration
The fund may temporarily concentrate its assets in obligations of US and/or foreign banks and bank holding companies when the yield to maturity on eligible portfolio investments in banking industry securities as a group generally exceeds the yield to maturity on all other eligible portfolio investments as a group. Focus on the banking industry would link the performance of the fund to changes in the performance of the banking industry. For example, a change in the market's perception of the riskiness of banks compared to non-banks would cause the fund's values to fluctuate.

Income Risk
Income risk is the risk that falling interest rates will cause the fund's income to decline.
