A Word About Risk
It is important to note that the Funds are not guaranteed by the U.S. Government. Fixed income investments entail interest rate risk, the risk of issuer default, issuer credit risk, and price volatility risk. Funds investing in bonds can lose their value as interest rates rise and an investor can lose principal.
Mortgage-backed and other asset-backed securities often involve risks that are different from or more acute than risks associated with other types of debt instruments.  MBS related to floating rate loans may exhibit greater price volatility than a fixed rate obligation of similar credit quality.  With respect to non-agency MBS, there are no direct or indirect government or agency guarantees of payments in pools created by non-governmental issuers.  Non-agency MBS are also not subject to the same underwriting requirements for the underlying mortgages that are applicable to those mortgage-related securities that have a government or government-sponsored entity guarantee.

Fund share prices and returns will fluctuate with market conditions, currencies, and the economic and political climates where the investments are made. Emerging markets securities carry special risks, such as less developed or less efficient trading markets, a lack of company information, and differing auditing and legal standards. The securities markets of emerging markets countries can be extremely volatile. The Fund’s investments denominated in foreign currencies will decline in value if the foreign currency declines in value relative to the U.S. dollar. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
