Identifying strategies to help generate income in a low-yield world
With sustained low interest rates, investors must look beyond high-grade debt for income potential
Managing market uncertainty
When market uncertainty leads to disruption in the equity markets, the diversification many bond funds can provide is critical.
An issuer may be unable to meet interest and/or principal payments, thereby causing its instruments to decrease in value and lowering the issuer’s credit rating.
Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa.
Non-investment grade securities may be subject to greater price volatility due to specific corporate developments, interest-rate sensitivity, negative perceptions of the market, adverse economic and competitive industry conditions and decreased market liquidity.
Diversification does not guarantee a profit or eliminate the risk of loss.
You could lose money by investing in the Fund. Although the Fund seeks to preserve your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the Fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time.
