Correlation is the extent to which the values of different types of investments move in tandem with one another in response to changing economic and market conditions. Bond Credit Rating represents the credit worthiness of the debt issued by a corporation. It is not to be confused with an individual's credit score. Credit ratings are published by credit rating agencies - S&P, Moody's - and used by investment professionals to assess the likelihood the debt will be repaid. The ratings are generally expressed as a scale from AAA to D, where higher-rated bonds are in the A's and lower-rated in the C's. Any bond rated BBB or higher is considered investment grade debt. Bond Carry is the return obtained from holding the bond as a long position, or the cost of holding it as a short position. The primary constituent of carry is the bond's coupon which is the period interest payment made by the bond issuer. Bond Duration is defined as the weighted average of the present value of the cash flows and is used as a measure of a bond price's response to changes in yield.

For Share Class A (incl. Sales Charge), performance data shown reflects the maximum sales charge of 5.00%. Share Class A (no Sales Charge), performance data shown does not reflect the deduction of the maximum 5.00% sales load. If reflected, the load would reduce the performance amount quoted. Share Class A imposes a 0.50% deferred sales charge on purchases of $1,000,000 or more that are redeemed within 12 months of purchases. Performance data does not reflect the deferred sales charge; if it had, returns would be reduced.
