ABS, RMBS and CMBS are subject to credit risk because underlying loan borrowers may default. Additionally, these securities are subject to prepayment risk because the underlying loans held by the issuers may be paid off prior to maturity. The value of these securities may go down as a result of changes in prepayment rates on the underlying mortgages or loans. During periods of declining interest rates, prepayment rates usually increase and the Fund may have to by the Fund may be lowered if an issuer's ﬁnancial condition changes. reinvest prepayment proceeds at a lower interest rate. CMBS are less susceptible to this risk because underlying loans may have prepayment penalties or prepayment lockout periods. There is a risk that issuers and counterparties will not make payments on securities and other investments held by the Fund, resulting in losses to the Fund. In addition, the credit quality of securities held.
Standard Deviation is a statistical measurement of volatility risk based on historical returns. Downside Deviation is a measure of downside risk that focuses on returns that fall below a minimum threshold or minimum acceptable return (MAR). A MAR of 0% was used in this calculation. Maximum Drawdown represents the largest peak-to-trough decline during a speciﬁc period of time. Sharpe Ratio is a measure of risk-adjusted performance. A risk-free rate of 2% was used in this calculation. Correlation is a statistical measure of how two investments move in relation to each other.
The Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Index provides a measure of the performance of the U.S. investment grades bonds market. The Barclays Capital U.S. High Yield Index covers the universe of ﬁxed rate, non-investment grade debt. The value of the Fund's investments in ﬁxed income securities will ﬂuctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of ﬁxed income securities. Foreign investing involves risks not typically associated with U.S. investments, including adverse ﬂuctuations in foreign currency values, adverse political, social and economic developments, less liquidity, greater volatility, less developed or less efficient trading markets, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards. Investing in emerging markets imposes risks different from, or greater than, risks of investing in foreign developed countries.
Lower-quality ﬁxed income securities, known as "high yield" or "junk" bonds, present greater risk than bonds of higher quality, including an increased risk of default. An economic downturn or period of rising interest rates could adversely affect the market for these bonds and reduce the Fund's ability to sell its bonds. The lack of a liquid market for these bonds could decrease the Fund's share price. Repayment of defaulted securities and obligations of distressed issuers (including insolvent issuers or issuers in payment or covenant default, in workout or restructuring or in bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings) is subject to signiﬁcant uncertainties. Investments in defaulted securities and obligations of distressed issuers are considered speculative as are junk bonds in general. The value of a speciﬁc security can be more volatile than the market as a whole and can perform differently from the value of the market as a whole. The value of securities of smaller issuers can be more volatile than those of larger issuers. The value of certain types of securities can be more volatile due to increased sensitivity to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Liquidity risk exists when particular investments of the Fund would be difficult to purchase or sell, possibly preventing the Fund from selling such illiquid securities at an advantageous time or price, or possibly requiring the Fund to dispose of other investments at unfavorable times or prices in order to satisfy its obligations.
The advisor's and sub-advisors' judgments about the attractiveness, value and potential appreciation of particular asset classes and securities in which the Fund invests (long or short) may prove to be incorrect and may not produce the desired results. Additionally, the advisor's judgments about the potential performance of the sub-advisor may also prove incorrect and may not produce the desired results. Overall equity and ﬁxed income securities and derivatives market risks may affect the value of individual instruments in which the Fund invests. Factors such as domestic and foreign economic growth and market conditions, interest rate levels, and political events affect the securities and derivatives markets. When the value of the Fund's investments goes down, your investment in the Fund decreases in value and you could lose money. Smaller companies may have limited product lines, markets or ﬁnancial resources, and they may be dependent on a limited management group. Securities of smaller companies may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements than those of larger, more established companies or the market averages in general. Underlying funds are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. As a result, the cost of investing in the Fund will be higher than the cost of investing directly in an underlying fund and may be higher than other funds that invest directly in stocks and bonds. Underlying funds are subject to speciﬁc risks, depending on the nature of the fund.
