Investment Objective

To provide a high level of long-term total return by investing principally in non-investment grade fixed income securities that are issued by corporate and government entities.

May be Appropriate for Investors

  • Seeking a long-term investment and who are willing to accept the risk of interest rate fluctuations
  • Seeking to diversify a portfolio by adding a bond component

Performance

There is no data available at this time.

Inception performance is based on the High Yield Bond Series Class S inception of 09/14/2009. For periods through 03/01/2019 (the inception date of the Class Z shares), performance for the Class Z shares is based on the historical performance of the Class S shares. Because the Class Z 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. Performance for periods greater than one year is annualized. 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 0.59%
Net 0.51%*

*Reflects the Advisor’s contractual agreement to limit its fees and reimburse certain expenses, where applicable. The contractual waiver may not be amended or terminated without the prior approval of the Fund’s Board of Directors. Class Z shares do not make payments to financial intermediaries.

A Word About Risk

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. 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. Investments in derivatives can be highly volatile and involve risks in addition to the risks of the underlying instrument on which the derivative is based, such as counterparty, correlation and liquidity risk. Also, the use of leverage increases exposure to the market and may magnify potential losses.
