There are risks involved with investing including the possible loss of principal. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Diversification does not ensure profits or prevent losses. Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the fund before investing.

The market price of a security may decline due to general market conditions that are not specifically related to a particular company, changes in the general outlook for corporate earnings, changes in interest or currency rates, or adverse investor sentiment. The prices of fixed income securities respond to economic developments as well as to changes in an issuer’s credit rating or market perceptions about the creditworthiness of an issuer. High yield bonds are debt securities rated below investment grade and are speculative, involve greater risks of default, downgrade or price declines and are more volatile and tend to be less liquid than investment-grade securities. While the Sub-Advisers believe that the integration of ESG analysis as part of the investment process contributes to its risk management approach, the Fund’s consideration of ESG criteria in making its investment decisions may affect the Fund’s exposure to risks associated with certain issuers, industries and sectors, which may impact the Fund’s investment performance.
