The manager receives credit quality ratings on underlying securities of the portfolio from the three major ratings agencies - S&P, Moody's and Fitch. When calculating the credit quality breakdown, the manager selects the middle rating of the agencies when all three agencies rate a security. The manager will use the lower of the two ratings if only two agencies rate a security and will use one rating if that is all that is provided. Securities that are not rated by all three agencies are reflected as such.

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 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 has the ability to invest 100% of its total assets in high yield securities.

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's investment in equity securities may rise or fall because of changes in the broad market or changes in a company's financial condition, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably. When the value of a fund's securities goes down, an investment in a fund decreases in value.

Total return assumes reinvestment of income.

The top 10 holdings listed reflect only the Fund's long-term investments. Short-term investments are excluded. Holdings are subject to change. The holdings listed should not be considered recommendations to purchase or sell a particular security. Each individual security is calculated as a percentage of the aggregate market value of the securities held in the Fund and does not include the use of derivative positions, where applicable.
