Principal Risks of Investing
There is a risk that you could lose all or a portion of your investment in the Fund. The value of your investment in the Fund will go up and down with the prices of the securities in which the Fund invests. Listed below are some of the principal risks associated with investing in the Fund.
General Investment Risk. Investors could lose all or a portion of their investment in the Fund. Investors should not invest in the Fund unless they can readily bear the consequences of such loss.
Suitability Risk. Investors are expected to select investments whose investment strategies are consistent with their financial goals and risk tolerance.
Market Risk. The prices of securities held by the Fund may go down due to general market and economic conditions.
Fixed-Income Securities Risk. The value of fixed-income or debt securities may be susceptible to general movements in the bond market and are subject to interest-rate and credit risk. As a special note on bond funds, return of principal is not guaranteed and there are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning shares of bond funds. The market value of bond funds tends to rise when prevailing interest rates fall and falls when interest rates rise.
Credit Risk. Credit risk is the risk of an issuer's financial health deterioriating, which may result in a credit rating downgrade and the issuer's inability to make timely bond payments.
Inflation Risk. The Fund's principal investment may not maintain the same purchasing power in the future if inflation rises.
Leverage Risk. Leveraging magnifies changes, favorable or unfavorable, in the value of the portfolio's securities.
Interest Rate Risk. Bond prices fall as interest rates rise, and rise as interest rates fall. Bond portfolios are riskier when interest rates rise. Long maturity bonds have more interest rate risk.
Yield Curve Risk. Yield curve risk refers to the risk that the Fund will be adversely impacted by changes in the differences between interest rates on shorter term and longer term debt instruments.
Spread Risk. Spread risk is the risk that changes in the difference between the yields of debt instruments (whether due to credit quality or otherwise) could adversely affect the Fund.
Call Risk. If a callable bond is redeemed before maturity, the Fund may be forced to reinvest the principal at a lower interest rate.
Prepayment Risk. Homeowners may pay off their mortgages early. This forces the Fund to reinvest the principal sooner than expected, which could be at a lower interest rate.
Liquidity Risk. When the Fund has difficulty in selling an asset quickly, it faces liquidity risk.
Convertible Securities Risk. Convertible securities are affected by interest rates, the risk that the issuer may default, and the value of the common stock into which these securities may convert.
Derivatives Risk. For some derivatives, the Fund could lose more than the amount invested. If the Fund uses derivatives to ""hedge"" portfolio risk, the hedge may not succeed.
Foreign Securities Risk. Non-U.S. securities have risks related to exchange rates, politics, economics, lack of information, low market liquidity and lack of strict financial controls.
Emerging Markets Risk. Emerging markets involve smaller sized, less liquid markets; unpredicatble inflation rates and political conditions; less stringent regulations; and lack of timely information.
High Yield Risk. High yield (""junk"") bonds are speculative, with greater risk of non-payment of bonds, higher price sensitivity and reduced liquidity during volatile economic conditions.
Active Trading Risk. The Fund may engage in frequent trading to achieve its investment objective. If the Fund does trade frequently, it may incur increased costs, which can lower the Fund's return.
Management Risk. The investment techniques and risk analyses used by the Fund's portfolio managers may not produce the desired results.
Securities Lending Risk. The Fund or the vehicles in which it invests may may participate in securities lending programs. The lending fund bears the risk of investment loss associated with any reinvestment of securities lending collateral held by the lending fund.
Increase in Expenses Risk. The actual cost of investing may be higher than the expenses listed in the expense table for a variety of reasons, including termination of a voluntary fee waiver or losing portfolio fee breakpoints if average net assets decrease. The risk of expenses increasing because of a decrease in average net assets is heightened when markets are volatile.
Not FDIC Insured Risk. The investment is not a deposit or obligation of, or guaranteed or endorsed by, any bank and is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board, or any other U.S. governmental agency.
Accounts of Affiliates of the Investment Manager. Affiliated managers may trade in securities at the same time as the Fund and, therefore, may potentially affect prices or available opportunities.
No Securities Registration. The Fund is exempt from registration with the SEC. Units of the Fund are exempt from registration with the SEC. Neither is registered with any state securities regulator.
No CFTC Registration. The Fund is not registered as a commodity pool with the CFTC because the Trustee is exempt from having to register as a commodity pool operator under CFTC Rule 4.5.
