STA Verdict



The investment seeks to provide capital appreciation. The fund invests substantially all of its assets in the SSGA Global Allocation Portfolio (the "Portfolio"), a separate series of the SSGA Master Trust with an identical investment objective as the fund. As a result, the fund invests indirectly through the Portfolio. The Portfolio typically allocates approximately 60% of its assets to equity securities, though this percentage can vary based on the Adviser's tactical decisions.
