Strategy And Objective

The Fund's investment objective is to provide a high level of current income which is generally exempt from the federal regular income tax. The Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax, except when investing for defensive purposes.The Fund pursues its objective by investing its assets so that, normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax(except when investing for defensive purposes). Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to (or may be a specific preference item for purposes of) the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals (AMT). The Fund invests at least a majority of the Fund's assets in a portfolio of: (1) long-term, tax-exempt securities; and (2) medium-quality or non investment-grade, tax-exempt securities. Long-term, tax-exempt securities generally include tax-exempt securities with stated maturities of 10 years or more. The Fund also may invest in tax-exempt securities with stated maturities of less than 10 years. Investment-grade securities are securities that receive investment-grade ratings (i.e., generally ratings in the first, second, third or fourth highest rating category) by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO) or unrated securities of comparable quality. The presence of a ratings modifier, sub-category, or gradation (for example, a(+) or (-)) is intended to show relative standing within the major rating categories and does not affect the security credit rating for purposes of the Fund's investment parameters. For example, securities rated AAA, AA, A or BBB (including modifiers, sub-categories or gradations) by Standard & Poor's, an NRSRO,would be rated in the first, second, third or fourth ratings category, respectively. Securities rated below investment grade (or non investment-grade securities) are securities that do not receive investment grade ratings (i.e., generally ratings below one of the four highest rating categories) by an NRSRO or unrated securities of comparable quality. For example, securities rated B or BB (including modifiers, sub-categories or gradations) by Standard & Poor's, an NRSRO, would be noninvestment-grade securities.Medium-quality securities generally include securities rated in the third or fourth highest rating category by an NRSRO and unrated securities of comparable quality. For example, tax-exempt securities rated A and BBB by Standard & Poor's, an NRSRO, are rated in the third (A) and fourth (BBB) highest rating categories, respectively. Under relevant SEC guidance, the Fund is permitted to invest in medium-quality and other investment-grade, tax-exempt securities to a greater degreeh an a high-yield bond fund that does not invest primarily in tax-exempt municipal securities. The Fund invests at least a majority of its assets in medium-quality or noninvestment-grade, tax-exempt securities in an attempt to pursue a higher level of current income than a tax-exempt bond fund that invests purely in investment-grade securities. The Adviser may invest up to 100% of the Fund's assets in non investment-grade, tax-exempt securities.
