Disclosures

Principal Risks

Investment Risks: You could lose money on an investment in the Fund. Any of the following risks, among others, could affect Fund performance or cause the Fund to lose money or to underperform: Company: The price of a company’s stock could decline or underperform. Convertible Securities are subject to the usual risks associated with debt instruments, such as interest rate and credit risk in addition to market risk. Credit: The price of a bond or other debt instrument is likely to fall if the issuer’s actual or perceived financial health deteriorates. The Fund may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance. Foreign Investing poses special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. As Interest Rates rise, bond prices fall, reducing the value of the Fund's share price. Because the Fund may invest in Other Investment Companies, you may pay a proportionate share of the expenses of that other investment company, in addition to the expenses of the Fund. A manager’s proprietary investment model may not adequately allow for existing or unforeseen market factors or the interplay between such factors.  Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: CurrencyLiquidity, Market, Market Capitalization, and Securities Lending. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.
