Duration 2.41

Effective duration is the standard measurement of sensitivity of a bond’s price to change in interest rates. Effective duration is expressed in years. When interest rates are rising, the price of bonds is declining. Conversely, when interest rates are declining, the price of bonds is increasing. The effective duration is the approximate percentage that the value of the bond will increase or decrease for a 1% change in interest rates. For example, a portfolio with an effective duration of 7 years would fall approximately 7% in value if interest rates increased by 1%. Due to the effect of inflation on TIPS, the effective duration of a portfolio with substantial TIPS holdings will measure only the approximate change in the value of the portfolio for a 1% change in interest rates. Therefore, effective duration should only be used as an estimate of the anticipated behavior of the Fund’s NAV given a change in interest rates.

Certain investments in debt securities of energy companies may be convertible into equity securities or may be accompanied by warrants, options or other forms of equity participation. As a result of such investments, the Fund may also hold equity securities of the issuers of debt securities in which the Fund invests. The Adviser will generally evaluate these investments based primarily on their debt characteristics.
