For the latest TIP Prospectus, which includes MAF, see the link below.

The fund may use leverage; invests in illiquid securities, non-US securities, small capitalization stocks, derivatives, below investment grade bonds and engages in short-selling. Non-US securities may entail political, economic, and currency risks different from those of US securities and may be issued by entities adhering to different accounting standards than those governing US issuers. Small capitalization stocks may entail different risks than larger capitalization stocks, including potentially lesser degrees of liquidity. The fund or certain of its money managers invest routinely and, at times, significantly in derivatives, certain of which are deemed by the SEC to be highly speculative. Short selling of securities may increase the potential for loss if a manager has difficulty covering a short position. Leverage may accelerate the velocity and magnitude of potential losses. Not more than 20% of the fund's assets may be invested in debt obligations rated below investment grade (i.e., having a rating lower than BBB by Standard & Poor's or Baa by Moody's) or unrated but deemed to be of similar quality. Bonds rated below investment grade are commonly referred to as "junk bonds." As a multi-manager fund, the fund may experience higher transaction costs than a fund managed by a single manager, and the fund may not be able to combine money managers such that their styles are complementary.
