NAV: Unless you are eligible for a waiver, the public offering price you pay when you buy Class A shares of the Fund is the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the shares plus an initial sales charge. The initial sales charge varies depending upon the size of your purchase. No sales charge is imposed where Class A or Class C shares are issued to you pursuant to the automatic investment of income dividends or capital gains distribution. It is the responsibility of the financial intermediary to ensure that the investor obtains the proper “breakpoint” discount. Class C, Class I and Class Y do not have an initial sales charge; however, Class C does charge a contingent deferred redemption charge. See the prospectus and summary prospectus for more information.
Mutual fund investing involves risk. Please see each Fund’s landing page for more complete information, including fund-specific risks. You can lose money by investing in any fund. Any investment in a fund should be part of an overall investment program, not a complete program. Please see the prospectus for information on these and other risk considerations. Bonds and bond funds will decrease as interest rates rise.
Performance quoted represents past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than average annual returns shown. Investment return and the principal value of an investment will fluctuate. Shares may be worth more or less than their original cost when redeemed.
Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. An investor should consider investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the investment company carefully before investing. The prospectus and summary prospectus contain this and other information. Please read them carefully before investing.
