RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH INVESTING IN THE FUND:
The manager seeks to achieve the stated objectives. There can be no guarantee the objectives will be met.
The Fund may invest in securities that are below investment grade (i.e., “high yield” or “junk bonds”) that are generally rated in the fifth or lower rating categories of Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s Investors Service. Although these securities tend to provide higher yields than higher-rated securities, there is a greater risk that the Fund’s share price will decline.
The Fund may invest in futures contracts, options, swaps, forwards and other derivatives. Many derivatives create leverage thereby causing the Fund to be more volatile than it would be if it had not used derivatives. Derivatives may be more sensitive to changes in economic and market conditions and could result in losses that significantly exceed the Fund’s original investment.
International investing involves a greater degree of risk and increased volatility. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accounting and taxation policies outside the U.S. can raise or lower returns. Also, some overseas markets may not be as politically and economically stable as the United States and other nations. The risks associated with foreign securities are magnified in countries in “emerging markets.” These countries may have relatively unstable governments and less-established market economies than developed countries. Emerging markets may face greater social, economic, regulatory and political uncertainties. These risks make emerging market securities more volatile and less liquid than securities issued in more developed countries.
The Fund’s fixed income securities are subject to interest rate risk. If rates increase, the value of the Fund’s investments generally declines.
Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 40% of its total assets in countries other than the United States.
Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its Assets in bonds.

Total return assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions and reflects the deduction of any sales charges, where applicable. Performance may reflect the waiver of a portion of the Fund’s advisory or administrative fees for certain periods since the inception date.
