Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance during periods of exceptional market conditions should not be expected to be repeated in a normal market environment. Current performance may be lower or higher than that cited.
Class A performance quoted "with maximum sales load" reflects the current maximum sales charge of 2.00%. The sales load on Class C shares is deferred and will be charged if you redeem shares within one year of purchase. The contingent deferred sales load is 1.00% of the purchase or sale price of the shares, whichever is less. Please read the prospectus carefully for more information on sales charges as they do not apply in all cases and if applied are reduced for larger purchases. Any sales charges are in addition to the Fund's fees and expenses as detailed in the Fund's most current prospectus. The performance quoted at NAV or "without sales load" does not reflect any sales charge. If a sales charge were included, the performance stated above would be lower.
Total return figures reflect an expense limitation in effect during the periods shown; without such limitation, the performance shown would have been lower. Performance results assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.
The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse certain expenses through at least July 31, 2018. The Adviser is permitted to recoup fees waived/expenses reimbursed for up to 3 years after the fiscal year in which the waiver/reimbursement took place, subject to certain limitations. Please read the prospectus for details.

Barclays U.S. Government 1-3 Year Bond Index is an unmanaged index that is generally considered to be representative of the average yield on U.S. government obligations having maturities between one and three years.

An investor should consider the fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money.

All investing involves risk, including potential loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. Fixed income funds are subject to interest-rate and credit risk. Typically, when interest rates rise bond values decline. Credit risk refers to the possibility that the bond issuer will not be able to make principal and interest payments. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to higher prepayment risk than corporate bonds and notes, particularly in periods of declining interest rates as well as the risk that an unexpected rise in interest rates will extend the life of the security beyond the expected repayment time, typically reducing the security’s value. The Fund may invest in below-investment-grade debt securities (“junk bonds”) which may be less liquid and are subject to greater risk of loss than investment-grade securities. Such securities may experience greater price volatility and higher default rates during period of adverse market conditions.
