Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. ●Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, event and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. ● Investments in high-yield (“junk”) bonds involve greater risk of price volatility, illiquidity, and default than higher-rated debt securities. ●Obligations of U.S. Government agencies are supported by varying degrees of credit but are generally not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. ●The risks associated with mortgage related- and asset-backed securities as well as collateralized loan obligations (CLOs) include credit, interest-rate, prepayment, liquidity, default and extension risk. ●The purchase of securities in the To-Be-Announced (TBA) market can result in additional price and counterparty risk. ●The Fund may use repurchase agreements, or reverse repurchase agreements, which can increase risk and volatility ● Use of leverage can increase market exposure, magnify investment risks, and cause losses to be realized more quickly. ●Derivatives are generally more volatile and sensitive to changes in market or economic conditions than other securities; their risks include currency, leverage, liquidity, index, pricing, and counterparty risk. ●Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments. ●Restricted securities may be more difficult to sell and price than other securities. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market
