in advising on global real estate securities and has a team of over 60
professionals located around the world. Also, Jones Lang LaSalle, the parent
company, is one of the world's largest property managers.
The Alto(TM) Monthly Income and Global Growth Portfolio features a
moderate aggressive investment profile that is global in nature, and provides
a flow of income and higher potential for long-term capital growth. The new
