  • The Fund’s investment in debt securities may be affected by changes in interest rates, credit ratings, and fluctuation in exchange rates of currencies in which these investments are denominated. Investment in bonds issued or guaranteed by governments may involve political, economic, default, or other risks.
  • The Fund may invest in emerging market securities and may be subject to additional risks arising from political, economic, regulatory and market factors.
  • If the Fund invests in debt securities which are below investment grade or unrated, including high yield bonds, it may, as a result, be subject to liquidity, volatility, default and counterparty risk.
