Strategy And Objective
The fund s investment objective is to seek total return with an emphasis on income exempt from federal income tax, but also considering capital preservation. The fund invests, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its net assets in securities and other investments, the interest on which is exempt from federal income tax. Interest from the fund s investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax. MFS (Massachusetts Financial Services Company, the fund s investment adviser) normally invests the fund s assets primarily in municipal instruments. The fund s dollar-weighted average effective maturity will normally not exceed five years. MFS generally invests substantially all of the fund s assets in investment grade quality debt instruments. MFS may invest 25% or more of the fund s total assets in municipal instruments that finance similar projects, such as those relating to education, healthcare, housing, utilities, water, or sewers. MFS may invest a significant percentage of the fund s assets in issuers in a single state, territory, or possession, or a small number of states, territories, or possessions. While MFS may use derivatives for any investment purpose, to the extent MFS uses derivatives, MFS expects to use derivatives primarily to increase or decrease exposure to a particular market, segment of the market, or security, to increase or decrease interest rate exposure, or as alternatives to direct investments. Derivatives include futures, forward contracts, options, inverse floating rate instruments, swaps, and certain complex structured securities. MFS uses an active bottom-up investment approach to buying and selling investments for the fund. Investments are selected primarily based on fundamental analysis of individual instruments and their issuers. Quantitative screening tools that systematically evaluate instruments may also be considered. In structuring the fund, MFS also considers top-down factors. For purposes of the fund s 80% policy, net assets include the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes.
