The portfolio seeks current income through short-, intermediate-, and long-term U.S. government, agency, and corporate bonds, and securitized investment-grade foreign bonds issued in currencies other than the U.S. dollar (but hedged by Vanguard to minimize currency exposures) and long-term capital appreciation through broadly diversified exposure to the major stock markets in and outside the United States.
