Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance 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 of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data current to the most recent month end may be obtained by calling 1-855-823-3611. Returns shown for the Fund include the reinvestment of all dividends, if any. Total return calculations reflect the effect of the Advisers fee waiver agreement for the Fund. If such fee waivers had not occurred, the quoted performance would be lower. Performance for periods greater than one-year is annualized.
The Gross Expense Ratio, per the Fund’s latest prospectus, includes all categories of expenses before any expense reductions or fee waivers.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. The value of your investment in the Fund could go down as well as up. Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including market, credit, interest-rate, liquidity and reinvestment risk. Investments in asset-backed, mortgage-related and mortgage- backed securities may be more sensitive to changes in interest rates, prepayments and impairment of the value of the collateral underlying the security. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The Fund may invest in non-U.S dollar-denominated foreign securities (including emerging markets), which may be more sensitive to currency fluctuations, political and economic instability, differing government regulations and liquidity risk. The Fund may also invest in derivatives which could increase the Fund’s volatility. Multi-manager and multi-style management may lead to overlapping securities transactions and higher transaction expenses compared to single investment management styles. Outcomes depend on the skill of the sub-advisers and adviser and the allocation of assets amongst them.
