Three-month and year-to-date returns are not annualized.
Figures quoted represent past performance, which is no guarantee of future results, and do not reflect taxes that a shareholder may pay on a fund. Investment return, principal value, and yields of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted and assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.
Net asset value (NAV) is the value of one share of the fund excluding any sales charges.
R6 Class shares are sold without a front-end sales charge or contingent deferred sales charge.
Does not include sales charges and assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. If sales charges were included, returns would be lower.
Bond values fluctuate in response to the financial condition of individual issuers, general market and economic conditions, and changes in interest rates. Changes in market conditions and government policies may lead to periods of heightened volatility in the bond market and reduced liquidity for certain bonds held by the fund. In general, when interest rates rise, bond values fall and investors may lose principal value. Interest-rate changes and their impact on the fund and its share price can be sudden and unpredictable. The use of derivatives may reduce returns and/or increase volatility. Certain investment strategies tend to increase the total risk of an investment (relative to the broader market). Securities issued by U.S. government agencies or government-sponsored entities may not be guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury. This fund is exposed to foreign investment risk and mortgage- and asset-backed securities risk. Consult the fund’s prospectus for additional information on these and other risks.
