Voya GNMA Income Fund - Class A

Class T shares of the Fund are not currently offered.

Fund Description


  • Primarily invests in GNMA securities with maturities in excess of one year and which have the same credit quality as U.S. Treasury securities, but higher yields to compensate for prepayment uncertainty
  • Seeks to deliver attractive income and returns by selecting GNMAs that can better withstand the impacts of changing interest rates and prepayment volatility
  • One of the oldest mortgage-backed securities funds and the one with the longest manager tenure

Investment Objective

The Fund seeks a high level of current income, consistent with liquidity and safety of principal, through investment primarily in Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA) mortgage-backed securities (also known as GNMA Certificates) that are guaranteed as to the timely payment of principal and interest by the U.S. Government. While the Fund invests in securities of this nature, its shares are not insured or guaranteed.

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance information shown. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Portfolio will fluctuate, so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. See above “Average Annual Total Returns %” for performance information current to the most recent month-end. Returns for the other share classes will vary due to different charges and expenses. Performance assumes reinvestment of distributions and does not account for taxes.

Total investment return at net asset value has been calculated assuming a purchase at net asset value at the beginning of the period and a sale at net asset value at the end of the period; and assumes reinvestment of dividends, capital gain distributions and return of capital distributions/allocations, if any, in accordance with the provisions of the dividend reinvestment plan. Net asset value equals total Fund assets net of Fund expenses such as operating costs and management fees. Total investment return at net asset value is not annualized for periods less than one year.

Benchmark Disclosures

Bloomberg Barclays GNMA Index

The Barclays GNMA Index is an unmanaged index covering mortgage-backed pass-through securities of the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA). The Index does not reflect fees, brokerage commissions, taxes or other expenses of investing. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.

Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. As Interest Rates rise, bond prices fall, reducing the value of the Fund's share price. To the extent that the Fund invests in asset-backed, Mortgage-Backed or Mortgage-Related Securities, its exposure to prepayment and extension risks may be greater than investments in other fixed-income securities. While the Fund invests in securities guaranteed by the U.S. Government as to timely payments of interest and principal, the Fund shares are Not Insured or Guaranteed. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Credit Risks; Extension Risks; Other Investment Companies' Risks; Prepayment Risks; U.S. Government Securities and Obligations Risks; and Securities Lending Risks. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.
