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 average rating is used. If only two ratings agencies assign ratings, the average rating is used. Securities that are not rated by any of the three agencies are listed as "Not Rated". Ratings breakdown does not include certain derivative instruments. Ratings do not apply to the Fund itself or to Fund shares. Ratings may change.

A WORD ABOUT RISK

All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its stated objective. The Fund's share price may fluctuate due to market risk and/or security selections that may underperform the market or relevant benchmarks. Fixed Income risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall; these risks are currently heightened because interest rates are at, or near, historical lows. Convertible securities are subject to the risks of both debt and equity securities. Loans and loan participations are also subject to nonpayment, default, collateral, liquidity, extension, prepayment and insolvency risks. 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. Investments in high-yield ("junk") bonds involve greater risk of price volatility, illiquidity, and default than higher-rated debt securities. Mortgage- and asset-backed securities' risks include credit, interest-rate, prepayment, and extension risk. Derivatives may be riskier or more volatile than other types of investments because they are generally more sensitive to changes in market or economic conditions; risks include currency, leverage, liquidity, index, pricing, and counterparty risk. Municipal securities may be adversely impacted by state/local, political, economic, or market conditions. Investors may be subject to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax as well as state and local income taxes. Capital gains, if any, are taxable. Foreign investments can be riskier and more volatile than U.S. investments due to the adverse effects of currency exchange rates, differences in market structure and liquidity, as well as political and economic developments in foreign countries and regions (e.g., "Brexit"). These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets. The Fund is non-diversified, so it may be more exposed to the risks associated with individual issuers than a diversified fund. The Fund may be adversely affected when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Privately placed, restricted (Rule 144A) securities may be more difficult to sell and value than publicly traded securities, thus they may be potentially illiquid. The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase the Fund's transaction costs and an investor's tax liability.
