any time. Negative allocations and allocations in excess of 100%, if
any, are primarily due to the Fund’s unsettled trade activity.
** Credit quality is a measure of a bond issuer’s ability to repay
interest and principal in a timely manner. The credit ratings shown
are based on each portfolio security’s rating as provided by
Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s Investors Service and/or Fitch Ratings,
Ltd. and typically range from AAA (highest) to D (lowest), or an
equivalent and/or similar rating. For this purpose, when two or more
of the agencies have assigned differing ratings to a security, the
highest rating is used. Securities that are unrated by all three
agencies are reflected as such. The credit quality of the
investments in the Fund’s portfolio does not apply to the stability
or safety of the Fund. These ratings are updated monthly and may
change over time. Please note, the Fund itself has not been rated by
an independent rating agency.
*** The Fund will not leverage its capital structure by issuing senior
securities such as preferred shares or debt instruments. The Fund
will also not borrow money for the purpose of leverage. The Fund may
invest in reverse repurchase agreements and/or other instruments
which can increase the risks and volatility of the Fund.
**** Percentages are based on total assets. If the Fund employs leverage,
the Effective Duration is based on net assets.
