The performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be lower or higher. Investment return and principal value of the fund will fluctuate, and shares may be worth more or less than their original cost when redeemed. Click quarter-end or month-end to obtain the most recent fund performance. The High Yield Fund imposes a 2.00% redemption fee on shares held for 90 days or less. Performance data does not reflect the redemption fee. If it had, return would be reduced.

C Shares inception is 12/31/2012. Returns shown for C Shares for the periods prior to its inception are derived from the historical performance of I Shares of the Fund during such periods and have been adjusted to reflect the higher total annual operating expenses of the C Shares. Returns shown without sales charge do not reflect the Contingent Deferred Sales Charge (CDSC) of 1.00% for the first year; if reflected, performance would be lower than shown. Returns shown reflect the deduction of the 1.00% CDSC. C Shares convert automatically to A Shares approximately eight years after purchase. A Shares are subject to lower annual expenses than C Shares.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.  Diversification does not assure a profit nor protect against loss in a declining market. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investment by the fund in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The Fund may invest in derivative securities, which derive their performance from the performance of an underlying asset, index, interest rate or currency exchange rate. Derivatives can be volatile and involve various types and degrees of risks. Depending on the characteristics of the particular derivative, it could become illiquid. Investment in Asset Backed and Mortgage Backed Securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of such as credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. The Fund may invest in foreign as well as emerging markets which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods.

The Growth of $10,000 Since Fund Inception chart reflects a hypothetical $10,000 investment in the class of shares noted with no sales charges applied. Assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Performance for other share classes will vary.

Investment performance reflects fee waivers in effect. In the absence of such waivers, total return would be reduced. The Advisor has contractually agreed to fee waivers to limit Fund net expenses through October 31, 2018.
