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.
