*As of 9.30.2022, the A Class was rated, based on its risk-adjusted returns, 4 stars Overall, 3 stars for 3 years, 3 stars for 5 years, and 5 stars for 10 years among 311, 311, 265, and 126 Nontraditional 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.

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.

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 a standard yield calculation developed by the SEC that allows for fairer comparisons of bond funds. It reflects dividends and interest ("income") earned during the most recent 30-day period after the deduction of the fund’s expenses and is calculated by dividing the income per share by the maximum offering share price on the last day of the period. Unsubsidized SEC 30-day yield is what the yield would have been had no fee waivers and/or expense reimbursement been in place.

This Fund may not be suitable for all investors. • 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. • The intrinsic value of the underlying stocks in which the Fund invests may never be realized or the stock may decline in value. • When

The Advisor has contractually agreed to waive management fees of underlying affiliated funds through February 1, 2023 and to waive fees and/or reimburse expenses to limit the ordinary expenses of the fund through February 1, 2023. The Fund may have net expenses greater than the expense cap as a result of any acquired fund fees and expenses or other expenses that are excluded from the calculation. Total annual operating expenses vary by share class. See the prospectus for information on the fees and expenses that apply to each share class.
