Foreign investing poses special risks, including currency fluctuation, and economic and political risks not found in solely domestic investments. Emerging market securities may be especially volatile. The strategy may use derivatives such as options and futures, which can be illiquid and may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on performance. The strategy is subject to both credit and interest rate risk. The share price and yield will be affected by interest rate movements, with bond prices generally moving in the opposite direction from interest rates. High yield, below-investment-grade debt securities may include issues that are highly speculative and more volatile. To the extent that the strategy invests in mortgage-related securities, its exposure to prepayment and extension risks may be greater than investments in other fixed income securities. Other risks include but are not limited to borrowing/leverage risks, debt securities risks, non-diversification risks, risks associated with other investment companies, price volatility risks, inability to sell securities risks and portfolio turnover risks.
