Principal risks include: Fixed income investments are subject to credit, market, and interest rate risks; call and redemption risk, where the issuer may call a bond held by the Fund for redemption before it matures and the Fund may lose income; foreign securities, which are subject to the risks of currency fluctuation and political uncertainty; mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities, which are subject to prepayment, extension, and interest rate risks, where the value will decline as interest rates rise; liquidity risk, which exists when particular investments are difficult to sell; high yield (“junk”) bonds, which are subject to greater credit and market risks; emerging markets risk, which are subject to greater volatility and price declines; currency risk in that the value of a particular currency will change in relation to other currencies; selling short is a form of leveraging techniques, which may magnify losses; derivatives, which may carry market, credit, and liquidity risks; U.S. government securities and U.S. Treasury bills are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, are less volatile than equity investments, and provide a guaranteed return of principal at maturity; risk of investment in loans, which include collateral and uncollateralized loans and their possible inability to meet obligations because of the financial condition of the borrower. The Fund is deemed a commodity pool and compliance with certain commodity pool regulations may cause the Fund’s expenses to increase. The nature to which regulations of commodity pools may affect the fund are uncertain. Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss in declining markets. The risks associated with the Fund are more fully explained in the prospectus. These risks may increase the Fund’s share price volatility. There is no guarantee the Fund’s objective will be achieved.

Average Maturity is the average time to maturity for a bond. Credit quality is calculated using the highest rating assigned by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO) such as Moody’s, S&P, or Fitch. The Not Rated category consists of securities that have not been rated by an NRSRO. Duration measures investment risk that takes into account both a bond's interest payments and its value to maturity. Overweight/Underweights are benchmarked against the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index, which includes investment grade securities issued by the U.S. government, its agencies, and by corporations with between 1 and 10 years remaining to maturity. An investment cannot be made directly in an index or average. All indexes and averages are unmanaged. Due to data availability, statistics may not be as of the current reporting period.
