The Portfolio Turnover rate is a measure of the Fund’s trading activity which represents the portion of the Fund’s holdings that has changed over a year. There is no assurance that the Fund will maintain its current level of turnover.
The Weighted Average Maturity (WAM) of a fund is dollar-weighted based upon the market value of a fund’s securities at the time of the calculation.  Maturity of a bond will generally be determined using a portfolio security’s final maturity date (date on which the final principal payment of a bond is scheduled to be paid); however, for securitized products, such as mortgage-backed securities and certain other asset-backed securities, maturity will be determined on an average life basis (weighted average time to receipt of all principal payments) by the investment adviser. Because pre-payment rates of individual mortgage pools vary widely, the average life of a particular pool cannot be predicted precisely. For securities with embedded demand features, such as puts or calls, either the demand date or the final maturity date will be used depending on interest rates, yields and other market conditions.
The Average Duration is a measure of an individual bond’s sensitivity to interest rates, expressed in years. Calculations of duration generally take into account the bond’s yield, interest payments, maturity date and call features. Weighted Average Duration is a measure of the duration of all bonds in a fund’s portfolio, also expressed in years, based on the market value weighted average duration of each bond in the portfolio.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. International investments entail risks not ordinarily associated with U.S. investments including fluctuation in currency values, differences in accounting principles, or economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors, as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. Concentration in infrastructure-related securities involves sector risk and concentration risk, particularly greater exposure to adverse economic, regulatory, political, legal, liquidity, and tax risks associated with MLPs and REITs. The Fund may invest in derivatives, which are often more volatile than other investments and may magnify the Fund’s gains or losses.
