The Fund's fixed income securities are subject to interest rate risk. If rates increase, the value of the Fund's investments generally declines.

International investing involves special risks, including economic, political, and currency instability - especially in emerging markets. The Fund's investments in emerging markets could lead to more volatility in the value of the Fund's shares. The small size of securities markets and the low trading volume may lead to a lack of liquidity, which leads to increased volatility. Emerging markets may not provide adequate legal protection for private or foreign investment or private property.

Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its Assets in debt securities of issuers located in or tied economically to emerging markets that are denominated in emerging markets currencies (Local Currency Debt Securities) or in derivatives or other instruments that are used as substitutes for Local Currency Debt Securities.

The Fund may invest all or substantially all of its assets in sovereign debt securities. These investments are subject to the risk of payment delays or defaults, due, for example, to cash flow problems, insufficient foreign currency reserves, political considerations, large debt positions relative to the country's economy or failure to implement economic reforms. There is no legal or bankruptcy process for collecting sovereign debt.

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 and derivatives. Many derivatives create leverage that can cause the Fund to be more volatile than it would be if it had not used derivatives.

Total return assumes reinvestment of income.
