A Word About Risk: High-yield or “junk” bonds have lower credit ratings and involve a greater risk to principal. Derivative prices depend on the performance of an underlyingasset; derivatives carry market, credit and liquidity risk. Investments in smaller companies may be more volatile and less liquid than investments in larger companies. Foreignmarkets may be more volatile, less liquid, less transparent and subject to less oversight, and values may fluctuate with currency exchange rates; these risks may be greater inemerging markets. Bond prices will normally decline as interest rates rise. The impact may be greater with longer duration bonds. Unlike US Treasuries, the securities in which thefund invests are not guaranteed as to timely payment of interest and principal and are subject to greater risk.

Distribution Yield is calculated by dividing the sum of all dividend and short-term capital gain distributions in the last 12 months by the NAV on the last business day of the period. The SEC Yield is a standardized annual yield based on the most recent 30-day period. It is calculated in accordance with current Securities and Exchange Commission regulations and is subject to change. The performance number from the year of the Fund's inception is the cumulative return over a partial year.

Performance assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions. Taxes on distributions or redemptions have not been deducted. For fund's with an expense reduction, performance would be lower had the expense reduction not been in effect.
