Important Legal Information

The risks associated with higher yielding, lower rated securities include higher risk of default and loss of principal. These securities carry a greater degree of credit risk relative to investment-grade securities. In addition to having sensitivity to other factors, securities issued by utility companies are particularly sensitive to interest rate movements. The Fund's share price and yield will be affected by interest rate movements. Special risks are associated with foreign investing, including currency volatility, economic instability and political developments of countries where the Fund invests. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors, in addition to those associated with their relatively small size and lesser liquidity. The Fund is actively managed but there is no guarantee that the manager's investment decisions will produce the desired results.
