Bond funds are subject to interest-rate and credit risk similar to individual bonds. As interest-rates rise or credit quality suffers, an investor is susceptible to loss of principal. Additional financial instruments that the Fund may use, including high-yield bonds, foreign bonds, and derivatives, are subject to additional risks. Additionally, asset-backed/mortgage-backed securities risk, call risk and emerging market risk are principal risks associated with investment in the fund.
