Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.

The fund’s Institutional Share class is a new class of shares which commenced operations on March 30, 2012. For the period prior to the commencement of operations for the Institutional Shares, the performance information shown is for the fund’s Class A Shares. The performance of the Class A Shares has not been adjusted to reflect the expenses of the Institutional Shares since the Institutional Share class is estimated to have a lower expense ratio than the expense ratio of the Class A Shares. The performance of the Class A Shares has been adjusted to remove any voluntary waiver of the fund’s expenses related to the Class A Shares that may have occurred during the period prior to the commencement of operations of the Institutional Share class.

Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.

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.

High-yield, lower-rated securities generally entail greater market, credit/default and liquidity risks and may be more volatile than investment-grade securities.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Investors should carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing.
