Risks and Other Considerations
Risk Considerations Investors should consider the following risk factors and special considerations associated with investing in the fund, which may cause you to lose money, including the entire principal amount that you invest. Credit Risk: The Fund could lose money if the issuer or guarantor of a fixed-income instrument or a counterparty to a transaction is unable or unwilling, or perceived to be unable or unwilling, to pay interest or repay principal on time or defaults. The issuer, guarantor or counterparty could also suffer a rapid decrease in credit quality rating, which would adversely affect the volatility of the value and liquidity of the instrument. Interest Rate Risk: As interest rates rise, the value of fixed-income securities held by the fund are likely to decrease. Securities with longer durations tend to be more sensitive to interest rate changes, making them more volatile than securities with shorter durations. Income Risk: Falling interest rates may cause the fund’s income to decline. Municipal Securities Risk: Municipal securities may be subject to credit, interest, prepayment, liquidity and valuation risks. In addition, Municipal securities can be affected by unfavorable legislative or political developments and adverse changes in the economic and fiscal conditions of state and municipal issuers or the federal government in case it provides financial support to such issuers. Asset-Backed Securities Risk: Investors in asset-backed securities generally receive payments that are part interest and part return of principal. These payments may vary based on the rate loans are repaid. Some asset-backed securities may have structures that make their reaction to interest rates and other factors difficult to predict, making their prices volatile and they are subject to liquidity and valuation risk. High-Yield and Unrated Securities Risk: High yield, below investment grade and unrated high risk debt securities may present additional risks because these securities may be less liquid, and therefore more difficult to value accurately and sell at an advantageous price or time, present more credit risk than investment grade bonds and subject to greater volatility and risk of default. Foreign Securities Risk: The fund may invest in U.S. and non-U.S. dollar-denominated bonds of foreign corporations, governments, agencies and supra-national agencies, which have different risks than investing in U.S. companies. Emerging Markets Risk: Investment in securities of issuers based in developing or “emerging market” countries entails all of the risks of investing in securities of non-U.S. issuers, as previously described, but to a heightened degree. Financial Sector Risk: The financial sector can be significantly affected by changes in interest rates, government regulation, the rate of defaults on corporate, consumer and government debt, the availability and cost of capital, and the impact of more stringent capital requirements. Active Management Risk: The fund is subject to management risk because it is an actively managed portfolio. In managing the fund’s portfolio securities, the Investment Advisor will apply investment techniques and risk analyses in making investment decisions for the fund, but there can be no guarantee that these will produce the desired results. Please read the prospectus for additional information.

*The Morningstar Rating for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products with at least a three-year history and does not include the effect of sales charges. Exchange-traded funds and open-end mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.
