Investment Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. 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. The Fund is subject to both Credit and Interest Rate Risk. The Fund's share price and yield will be affected by interest rate movements, with bond prices generally moving in the opposite direction from interest rates. Credit Risk refers to the bond issuers and senior loan issuers ability to make timely payments of principal and interest. 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-Related Securities, its exposure to prepayment and extension risks may be greater than investments in other fixed-income securities. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Company; Credit Default Swaps; Currency; Investment Model; Market; Market Capitalization; Municipal Obligations; Other Investment Companies'; Price Volatility; Prepayment and Extension; Securities Lending; Sovereign Debt and U.S. Government Securities and Obligations Risks. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.

The Overall Morningstar risk-adjusted return rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar Ratings are for the A and I share classes only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each 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. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.)

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund(s) carefully before investing.
