SI = Since Inception. Fund Inception: 09/30/1998
Operating Expenses:   Net  0.71% |  Gross  0.76%

Share Class Inception: 2/28/17
Class F-shares performance prior to 2/28/17 reflects Class I-shares performance and operating expenses, and, prior to 5/31/07 the performance and operating expenses of Class A-shares (excluding sales charges). Performance for Class F-shares prior to its inception date would have differed if Class F- operating expenses had been reflected. Since Inception (SI) performance is calculated from 9/30/98.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.

If S&P, Moody's, and Fitch assign different ratings, the median rating is used. If only two agencies assign ratings, the lower rating is used.

A WORD ABOUT RISK

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee a fund will achieve its stated objective. 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, 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. 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. These risks may be greater for investments in emerging markets. Privately placed, restricted (Rule 144A) securities may be more difficult to sell and price than other securities.
