John Hancock Makes Short Duration Credit Opportunities And Global High Yield Mutual Funds Available To Retail Investors

Fixed-income investments are subject to interest-rate and credit risk; their value will normally decline as interest rates rise or if the creditor is unable or unwilling to make principal or interest payments. Investments in higher-yielding, lower-rated securities involve additional risks as these securities include a higher risk of default and loss of principal. Foreign investing, especially in emerging markets, has additional risks, such as currency and market volatility and political and social instability. Currency transactions are impacted by fluctuations in exchange rates, which may adversely affect the U.S. dollar value of a fund's investments. The use of hedging and derivatives transactions could produce disproportionate gains or losses and may increase volatility and costs. Mortgage and asset-backed securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, subject to early repayment risk, and their value may fluctuate in response to the market's perception of issuer creditworthiness. If the fund invests in illiquid securities, it may be difficult to sell them at a price approximating their value. Loan participations and assignments involve special types of risks, including credit risk, interest-rate risk, counterparty risk, liquidity risk and the risks of being a lender. For additional information on these and other risk considerations, please see the Fund's prospectus.
