*As of 9.30.2018, the P Class was rated, based on its risk-adjusted returns, 5 stars Overall, and 5 stars for 3 years out of 902, and 902 Intermediate-Term Bond funds, respectively.

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 3-year. 5-year, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

Data is subject to change on a daily basis. Partial year returns are cumulative, not annualized. Returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends. The securities mentioned are provided for informational purposes only and should not be deemed as a recommendation to buy or sell.

The annualized rate an investor would receive if the most recent fund distribution stayed the same going forward. This rate does not represent the total return of a fund.

SEC 30-day yield is based on net investment income for the most recent 30-day period, is annualized and is divided by the offering price at month-end.

This Fund may not be suitable for all investors. • Investments in fixed-income instruments are subject to the possibility that interest rates could rise, causing the value of the Fund’s holdings and share price to decline. • Investors in asset-backed securities, including collateralized loan obligations (“CLOs”), 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 debt securities are at a greater risk of default than investment grade bonds and may be less liquid, which may increase volatility. • The Fund’s use of leverage, through borrowings or instruments such as derivatives, may cause the Fund to be more volatile and riskier than if it had not been leveraged. The more a Fund invests in leveraged instruments, the more the leverage will magnify any gains or losses on those investments. • Investments in reverse repurchase agreements expose the Fund to many of the same risks as leveraged instruments, such as derivatives. • Investments in loans, including loan syndicates and other direct lending opportunities, involve special types of risks, including credit, interest rate, counterparty, prepayment, liquidity, and valuation risks. Loans may offer a fixed or floating interest rate and are often generally below investment grade and may be unrated. • You may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. • Please read the prospectus for more detailed information regarding these and other risks.

+ The Advisor has contractually agreed to waive fees and/or reimburse fund expenses until February 1, 2020 to limit the ordinary expenses of the fund. Read the prospectus for more information regarding fees and expenses.
