Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities.
Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities.
The fund invests in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for investments in emerging markets.
The fund may use leverage which may cause the effect of an increase or decrease in the value of the portfolio securities to be magnified and the Fund to be more volatile than if leverage was not used.
Derivatives involve special risks including correlation, counterparty, liquidity, operational, accounting and tax risks. These risks, in certain cases, may be greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments.
Investing in emerging markets has more risk such as increased volatility, relatively unstable governments, social and legal systems that do not protect shareholders, economies based on only a few industries and securities markets that are substantially smaller, less liquid and more volatile with less government oversight than more developed countries.
