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. 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 include credit, interest-rate, prepayment, liquidity, default 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. Privately placed, restricted (Rule 144A) securities may be more difficult to sell and price than other securities. Repurchase agreements may increase the fund’s risk and volatility.
