The Fund is designed to maximize inflation-protected return, which means maximizing the "real return." Real return is the total of a security less the actual rate of inflation.

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

The Fund has the ability to invest in municipal securities, the income from which is exempt from federal income tax. The risk of a municipal obligation generally depends on the financial and credit status of the issuer.

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 derivatives that may be riskier than other types of investments because they may be more sensitive to changes in economic or market conditions and could result in losses that significantly exceed the Fund's original investment. Many derivatives create leverage that can cause the Fund to be more volatile than it would be if it had not used derivatives.

The Fund may invest in mortgage-related and asset-backed securities that may or may not be guaranteed by governments and their agencies, supranational organizations, corporations, or banks. The value of these assets will be influenced by factors affecting the assets underlying such securities. During periods of declining asset values, the asset-backed securities may decline in value.

The Fund's tax aware strategies may reduce the amount of taxable income that you recognize as a result of your investment in the Fund but will not eliminate it. These strategies may require trade-offs that reduce pre-tax income.

The Fund may engage in short sales. There is no guarantee that the use of long and short positions will succeed in limiting the Fund's exposure to domestic stock market movements, capitalization, sector-swings or other risk factors. Investment in a portfolio involved in long and short selling may have higher portfolio turnover rates. This will likely result in additional tax consequences. Short selling involves certain risks, including additional costs associated with covering short positions and a possibility of unlimited loss on certain short sale positions.
