Weighted average life (WAL) to worst represents the weighted average number of years for which each dollar of unpaid principal on a fixed-income security remains outstanding. This calculation is made by making the worst-case scenario assumptions on the issue, assuming any prepayment, call, or sinking fund options are used by the issuer.
Weighted average effective duration of the securities comprising the fund portfolio or the index. Effective duration takes into account any embedded options (i.e., a put or a call) and reflects the expected change in future cash flows caused by the options in response to changing interest rates.
Yield to Maturity (YTM) is the total return anticipated on a bond if the bond is held until the end of its lifetime.
Average Price excludes zero coupon, interest only and principal only bonds, preferred securities not priced at 100 par, and other alternative sector buckets when applicable
Credit Quality (% of Gross Assets)
Cash & Cash Equivalents
Source: BlackRock Solutions and Bloomberg Barclays. The fund credit quality ratings are measured on a scale that generally ranges from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). All securities except for those labeled “Not Rated” or “Other Fixed Income” have been rated by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (“NRSRO”). For purposes of this presentation, when ratings are available from more than one NRSRO, the highest rating is used. Guggenheim Investments converts ratings to the equivalent S&P rating.
Unrated securities do not necessarily indicate low credit quality.
Other includes non-fixed-income holdings such as equity, alternatives, non-fixed-income investment vehicles, and derivatives.

Class P Shares launched on May 1, 2015.
On 1/13/2012, the Municipal Income Fund (the "Fund") acquired the assets and assumed the liabilities of TS&W/Claymore Tax-Advantaged Balanced Fund (the "Predecessor Fund"), a closed-end fund which used different investment strategies and had different investment advisers. Class A shares of the Fund have assumed the performance, financial and other historical information of the Predecessor Fund's Common Shares. The performance of Class A shares of the Fund shown reflects the NAV performance of the Predecessor Fund. Performance has not been restated to reflect the estimated annual operating expenses of Class A shares of the Fund. Please note, the Predecessor Fund's expense ratio was higher than the Fund's current gross expense ratio. With load performance reflects maximum sales charges or contingent deferred sales charges (CDSC) as applicable. Class A-shares have a maximum sales charge of 4.75%. Class C-shares have a maximum CDSC of 1% for shares redeemed within 12 months of purchase.
Performance displayed represents past performance which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized. Load performance reflects maximum sales charges or contingent deferred sales charges (CDSC) as applicable. Class A-shares have a maximum sales charge of 4.00%. Effective 10/1/2015 the A-Class maximum front-end sales charge was changed from 4.75% to 4.00%. For performance periods that begin prior to 10/1/2015, a 4.75% load was used and for performance periods that begin after 10/1/2015, a 4.00% load was used. Class C-shares have a maximum CDSC of 1% for shares redeemed within 12 months of purchase. For additional information, see the fund's prospectus.
Data is subject to change on a daily basis. Partial year returns are cumulative, not annualized. Returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends.
This Fund may not be suitable for all investors. • The Fund will be significantly affected by events that affect the municipal bond market, which could include unfavorable legislative or political developments and adverse changes in the financial conditions of state and municipal issuers or the federal government in case it provides financial support to the municipality. Income from municipal bonds held by the Fund could be declared taxable because of changes in tax laws. The Fund may invest in securities that generate taxable income. A portion of the Fund’s otherwise tax-exempt dividends may be taxable to those shareholders subject to the alternative minimum tax. • Certain sectors of the municipal bond market have special risks that can affect them more significantly than the market as a whole. Because many municipal instruments are issued to finance similar projects, conditions in these industries can significantly affect the Fund and the overall municipal market. • Municipalities currently experience budget shortfalls, which could cause them to default on their debt and thus subject the Fund to unforeseen losses. • Like other funds that hold bonds and other fixed-income investments, the Fund’s market value will change in response to interest rate changes and market conditions among other factors. In general, bond prices rise when interest rates fall and vice versa. • The Fund’s exposure to high yield securities may subject the Fund to greater volatility. • When market conditions are deemed appropriate, the Fund will leverage to the full extent permitted by its investment policies and restrictions and applicable law. Leveraging will exaggerate the effect on net asset value of any increase or decrease in the market value of the Fund’s portfolio. • The Fund may invest in derivative instruments, which may be more volatile and less liquid, increasing the risk of loss when compared to traditional securities. Certain of the derivative instruments are also subject to the risks of counterparty default and adverse tax treatment. • Instruments and strategies (such as reverse repurchase agreements, unfunded commitments, tender option bonds and borrowings) may expose the Fund to many of the same risks as investments in derivatives and may provide leveraged exposure to a particular investment, which will magnify any gains or losses on those investments. • The Fund’s investments in other investment vehicles subject the Fund to those risks and expenses affecting the investment vehicle. • The Fund’s investment in foreign securities which carry additional risks when compared to U.S. securities, due to the impact of diplomatic, political or economic developments in the country in question (investments in emerging markets securities are generally subject to an even greater level of risks). • Investments in syndicated bank loans generally offer a floating interest rate and involve special types of risks. • The Fund is subject to active trading risks that may increase volatility and impact its ability to achieve its investment objective. • You may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. • It is important to note that the Fund is not guaranteed by the U.S. government. • Please read the prospectus for more detailed information regarding these and other risks.
