Fixed income investing entails credit risks and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the fund's share price can fall. Below investment grade ("high yield" or "junk") bonds are more at risk of default than other bond investments and are subject to liquidity risk. A portion of a municipal bond fund's distributions may be subject to tax and may increase taxes for investors subject to Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). May invest substantially in Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories, commonwealths and possessions, and could be exposed to their local political and economic conditions. Inverse floaters can be more volatile than conventional fixed-rate bonds and entail the use of leverage. The Fund may invest in the segment of the municipal bond market that is unrated by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization ("NRSRO"). Under certain market conditions, some unrated securities may trade less actively than rated securities.
Shares of mutual funds are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not guaranteed by any bank, are not insured by the FDIC or any other agency, and involve investment risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.
