International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards. Prices of emerging-markets securities can be significantly more volatile than the prices of securities in developed countries, and currency risk and political risks are accentuated in emerging markets.
Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.
High-yield, lower-rate securities generally entail greater market, credit/default and liquidity risk and may be more volatile than investment-grade securities.
The fund’s benchmark is a custom index comprised of four separate indexes which track various security types. The weightings assigned to each component index of the benchmark are fixed, but do not necessarily reflect the fund’s allocation to the type of fixed-income securities represented by the component indexes, which will vary.
