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.

SI = Since Inception. Fund Inception: 09/30/1998

Share Class Inception: 3/1/21.
Class R6-share performance prior to 3/1/21 reflects the performance and operating expenses of Class Y-shares. Performance for Class R6 shares prior to its inception date would have differed if the operating expenses of Class R6 had been reflected. SI performance is calculated from 9/30/98.

The Fund’s Class R6 shares have not been in operation for 10 years. Therefore, the Calendar Year Returns (R6 Shares) chart includes performance and operating expenses of another class. For more information, see the prospectus.

Credit exposure is the credit ratings for the underlying securities of the Fund as provided by Standard and Poor's (S&P), Moody's Investors Service, or Fitch and typically range from AAA/Aaa (highest) to C/D (lowest). 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. Securities that are not rated by any of the three agencies are listed as "Not Rated." Ratings do not apply to the Fund itself or to Fund shares. Ratings may change.

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. • 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, economic and regulatory developments. • Integration of environmental, social, and/or governance (ESG) characteristics into the investment process may not work as intended. • 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, regulatory and counterparty risk. • Restricted securities may be more difficult to sell and price than other securities.
