* Portfolio holdings and weightings are historical and are presented
here for informational purposes only. They are subject to change at any
time. Negative allocations and allocations in excess of 100%, if any,
are primarily due to the Fund's unsettled trade activity.

** Credit quality is a measure of a bond issuer's ability to repay
interest and principal in a timely manner. The credit ratings shown are
based on each portfolio security's rating as provided by Standard and
Poor's, Moody's Investors Service and/or Fitch Ratings, Ltd. and
typically range from AAA (highest) to D (lowest), or an equivalent
and/or similar rating. For this purpose, when two or more of the
agencies have assigned differing ratings to a security, the highest
rating is used. Securities that are unrated by all three agencies are
reflected as such. The credit quality of the investments in the Fund's
portfolio does not apply to the stability or safety of the Fund. These
ratings are updated monthly and may change over time. Please note,
the Fund itself has not been rated by an independent rating agency.

*** The Fund will not leverage its capital structure by issuing senior
securities such as preferred shares or debt instruments. The Fund will
also not borrow money for the purpose of leverage. The Fund may invest
in reverse repurchase agreements and/or other instruments which can
increase the risks and volatility of the Fund.

**** Percentages are based on total assets. If the Fund employs
leverage, the Effective Duration is based on net assets.
