Exposures and breakdowns are asset-weighted using the current market value of bonds held in the portfolio, as well as the full amount and exposure of bonds held in a tender option bond (TOB) trust, even though the fund owns only the residual inverse floater in its portfolio and managed assets.

This may not be fully consistent with generally accepted accounting principles.

An investment in this fund presents a number of risks and is not suitable for all investors. Investors should carefully review and consider potential risks before investing. For more detailed information on the specific risks associated with this fund, please view the Overview tab.
