To provide a high level of long-term total return, which is a combination of income and capital appreciation.
Under normal circumstances, the Series will invest at least 80% of its assets in bonds that are rated below investment-grade (junk bonds) and those securities, principally exchange-traded funds, that are designed to track the performance of non-investment grade securities.
There is an inverse relationship between bond prices and interest rates; as interest rates rise, bond prices (and therefore the value of bond funds) fall. Likewise, as interest rates fall, bond prices and the value of bond funds rise. Investments in higher-yielding, lower-rated securities involve additional risks, including a higher risk of default and loss of principal.

Inception performance is based on the High Yield Bond Series Class S inception of 09/14/2009. For periods through 08/01/2012 (the inception date of the Class I shares), performance for the Class I shares is based on the historical performance of the Class S shares. Because the Class I shares invest in the same portfolio of securities as the Class S shares, performance will be different only to the extent that the Class S shares have a higher expense ratio. Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted.

Credit quality ratings are measured on a scale that generally ranges from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). Not Rated (NR) is used to classify securities for which a rating is not available. Credit quality ratings for each issue are obtained from Bloomberg using ratings derived from Moody’s Investors Services (Moody’s) or Standard & Poor’s. When ratings from Moody’s are not available, ratings from Standard & Poor’s are used.
