3Effective duration is a duration calculation for bonds with embedded options. Effective duration takes into account that expected cash flows will fluctuate as interest rates change. Yield to effective maturity is the total return anticipated if a bond is held for its lifetime. The 30-day SEC yield is an estimator of the return an investor will experience with his or her bond fund investment over a longer period of time.

There are risks involved with investing, including the possible loss of principal. Bonds and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international and emerging market investments may involve risk of capital loss and unfavorable fluctuation in currency values due to differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic, or political instability in other nations. The Fund may invest in derivatives, which are often more volatile than other investments and may magnify the Fund’s gains or losses.

You should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before you invest. The Fund’s summary or full prospectus, which can be obtained above, or by calling 1-866-591-1568, contains this and other information about the fund.
