The Fund seeks high current income by actively managing a diversified portfolio of U.S. and international high yield and investment-grade debt securities. It selects sector concentrations driven by evaluation of capital markets. The Fund actively adjusts a blend of fixed-income securities to manage risk, seek enhanced yield, and offer total return potential.
PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE
"Having the flexibility to invest in a broad range of issuers and segments of the debt securities markets across countries and regions, sectors and industries, helps us identify what we believe to be the best opportunities for above-average total return. We strive to meet this objective through a combination of top-down, fixed-income macro-analysis and bottom-up fundamental research on individual securities."

The 30-day SEC yield is based on the hypothetical annualized earning power (investment income only) of the Fund's portfolio securities during the period indicated.
The Average Maturity of certain funds might not be a useful measure if they contain securities with principal paydowns, such as mortgage passthroughs. Instead, market participants calculate Average Life, which reflects the average time to receipt of principal payments (scheduled principal payments and projected prepayments).
