The High Yield Bond Series seeks 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.
Available in all 50 states.
*May be waived for certain qualified retirement plans and participants in an automatic investment program.
Includes a shareholder servicing fee of 0.25%.

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.
