The use of fixed-income securities entails interest rate and credit risks. Interest rate risk is the risk that debt securities will decrease in value with increases in market interest rates. Credit risk is the risk that the issuer of a bond will fail to make timely payment of interest or principal; the decline in an issuer’s credit rating can cause the price of its bonds to go down. To the extent the Fund invests more heavily in particular sectors, its performance will be sensitive to factors affecting those sectors. Financial sector companies are heavily regulated and particularly sensitive to interest rate fluctuations. The Fund’s incorporation of environmental, social and/or governance (ESG) considerations in its investment strategy may cause it to underperform funds that do not incorporate these considerations. Please see the prospectus for a complete discussion of the Fund’s risks. There can be no assurances that the investment objectives of this Fund will be met.
