Operating Expenses:   Net  0.56% |  Gross  0.56%

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 8/31/06 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 10/31/02.

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.

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.

A WORD ABOUT RISK

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by allocating assets among specialist portfolio managers. 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.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 value of inflation-protected securities (IPS) generally fluctuates with changes in real interest rates, and the market for IPSs may be less developed or liquid, and more volatile, than other securities markets. Mortgage related- and asset-backed securities’ risks include credit, interest-rate, prepayment, and extension risk. 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.
