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.
