Disclosures

Principal Risks

Investment 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.
