Product Characteristics

As of

Total (net) expense represents the total annual operating expenses that shareholders pay (after the effect of fee waivers and/or expense reimbursement). The Fund’s investment manager (the “Manager”) contractually caps certain expenses of the Fund (excluding interest, taxes, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividend and interest expenses relating to short sales, and extraordinary expenses, if any; consequently, total (net) expenses may exceed the contractual cap) through 10/31/2023 for Institutional Class at 0.70%, Class A at 1.07%, and Class C at 1.82% (each as a % of average net assets). Absent such arrangements, which cannot be changed without Board approval, the returns may have been lower. Information as of the most recent prospectus dated February 28, 2020, as amended and supplemented.

Information Ratio (average 3-year shown) is a measure of risk-adjusted returns. The average excess return (over an appropriate benchmark or risk free rate) is divided by the standard deviation of these excess returns. The higher the measure, the higher the risk adjusted return. The Information Ratio of the benchmark will equal zero. Standard Deviation (average 3-year shown) is a statistical measure of portfolio risk that describes the average deviation of portfolio returns from the mean portfolio return over a certain period of time to show how wide this range of returns typically is. The wider the typical range of returns, the higher the Standard Deviation, and the higher the portfolio risk. Sharpe Ratio (average 3-year shown) is a measure of risk-adjusted returns that can be used to compare the performance of managers. The ratio represents the return gained per unit of risk taken. Managers with the same excess return for a period but different levels of risk will have Sharpe ratios that reflect the difference in the level of risk. Tracking error (average 3-year shown) is the standard deviation of a portfolio’s relative returns (vs. a benchmark) and measures the volatility of the return differences between the portfolio and benchmark over time. A higher tracking error implies that a portfolio is actively managed vs. its benchmark. A portfolio that mirrors its benchmark would have a very low tracking error. Weighted Average Maturity is expected average life to worst or in other words the par-weighted average time (in years) to principal repayment for securitized assets or the time (in years) to probable call/put for non-securitized assets. Weighted Average Price is computed by weighting the price of each loan or bond by its relative size in the portfolio. The number reveals whether the fund favors loans or bonds selling at prices above (premium) or below (discount) face value (premium is a value > $100; discount is a value < $100).

A fund’s 30-day SEC Yield is similar to a yield to maturity for the entire portfolio. The formula is designated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This standardized mandatory calculation is more frequently associated with bond funds. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Absent any expense cap arrangement noted above, the SEC Yield may have been lower. A negative 30-Day SEC yield results when a Fund’s accrued expenses exceed its income for the relevant period. Please note, in such instances the 30-Day SEC yield may not equal the Fund’s actual rate of income earned and distributed by the fund and therefore, a per share distribution may still be paid to shareholders. The unsubsidized 30-day SEC yields for Class A, Class C and Institutional Class are 3.22%, 2.49% and 3.62% respectively.
