Returns-Based Characteristics

As of April 30, 2024

3 Year5 Year10 Year

A measure of risk-adjusted performance; alpha reflects the difference between a portfolio's actual return and the return that could be expected give its risk as measured by beta.


The sensitivity of a portfolio's returns to changes in the return of the market as measured by the index or benchmark that represents the market. A portfolio with a beta of 1.0 behaves exactly like the index. A beta less than 1.0 suggests lower risk than the index, while a beta greater than 1.0 indicates a risk level higher than the index.

Information Ratio
Information Ratio:

The ratio of portfolio returns in excess of a market index to the variability of those excess returns; in effect, information ratio describes the value added by active management in relation to the risk taken to achieve those returns.


The proportion of the variation in a portfolio's returns that can be explained by the variability of the returns of an index. High R-squared (close to 1.0) is usually consistent with broad diversification.

Sharpe Ratio
Sharpe Ratio:

A risk-adjusted measure calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the portfolio's historical risk-adjusted performance.

Standard Deviation
Standard Deviation:

A measure of the degree to which an individual probability value varies from the distribution mean. The higher the number, the greater the risk.

Investment Team


Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. High-Yield Securities, or "junk bonds", are rated lower than investment-grade bonds because there is a greater possibility that the issuer may be unable to make interest and principal payments on those securities. To the extent that the Fund invests in Mortgage- and/or Asset-Backed Securities, its exposure to prepayment and extension risks may be greater than investments in other fixed-income securities. U.S. Government Securities and Obligations are subject to market and interest rate risk, and may be subject to varying degrees of credit risk. 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 does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Convertible Securities are securities that are convertible into or exercisable for common stocks at a stated price or rate. The Fund may enter into Credit Default Swaps, either as a buyer or a seller of the swap. A buyer of a swap pays a fee to buy protection against the risk that a security will default. As Interest Rates rise, bond prices fall, reducing the value of the Fund's share price. Bank instruments include certificates of deposit, fixed time deposits, bankers' acceptances, and other debt and deposit-type obligations issued by banks. Changes in economic, regulatory or political conditions, or other events that affect the banking industry may have an adverse effect on bank instruments or banking institutions that serve as counterparties in transactions with the Fund. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Credit; Interest Rate; Investment Model; Liquidity; Municipal Securities; Currency; Company; Concentration; Market; Market Capitalization; Other Investment Companies'; Prepayment and Extension; Real Estate Companies and Real Estate Investment Trusts ("REITs"); Repurchase Agreements; Sovereign Debt; and Securities Lending Risks. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.
