Inception performance is based on the Global Fixed Income Series Class I inception of 10/01/2012. For periods prior to 04/01/2013 (the inception date of the Class S shares), performance for the Class S shares is hypothetical and is based on the historical performance of the Class I shares adjusted for the Class S shares’ charges and expenses. 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.

Expense Ratio

Gross 0.88%
Net 0.85%*

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.

Market Cycle

---

Inception performance is based on the Global Fixed Income Series Class I inception of 10/01/2012. For periods prior to 04/01/2013 (the inception date of the Class S shares), performance for the Class S shares is hypothetical and is based on the historical performance of the Class I shares adjusted for the Class S shares’ charges and expenses. 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.

Expense Ratio

Gross 0.88%
Net 0.85%*

*Includes a shareholder servicing fee of 0.15% Reflects the Advisor’s contractual agreement to limit its fees and reimburse certain expenses. The contractual waiver may not be amended or terminated prior to the expiration date (04/30/2018) without the approval of the Fund’s Board of Directors.

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.

A Word About Risk

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. Additionally, funds whose investments are concentrated in foreign countries may be subject to fluctuating currency values, different accounting standards, and economic and political instability.
