Debt securities are subject to various risks, the most prominent of which are credit and interest rate risk. The issuer of a security may fail to make payments in a timely manner. Values of debt securities may rise and fall in response to changes in interest rates. This risk may be enhanced with longer-term maturities. There is a greater level of credit risk and price volatility involved with high yield securities than investment grade securities. There may be no ready market for bank loan participation interests. The fund may have to sell the interests at a substantial discount. Such interests are subject to the credit risk of the underlying corporate borrower.
