The Funds investment objective is to seek total return. The Fund invests mainly in debt securities of foreign government and corporate issuers. A debt security is a security representing money borrowed by the issuer that must be repaid. The terms of a debt security specify the amount of principal, the interest rate or discount, and the time or times at which payments are due. The Fund can invest in various types of debt securities, generally referred to as bonds, including government bonds, corporate debt obligations, structured notes, participation interests in loans, zero coupon or stripped securities,certain mortgate-related securities or asset-backed securities and other debt obligations. Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in debt securities, and in derivatives and other instruments that have economic characteristics similar to such securities. The Fund typically invests in at least three countries other than the United States. The Fund invests in debt securities of issuers in both developed and emerging markets throughout the world. The Fund may buy securities issued by companies of any size or market capitalization range and at times might emphasize securities of issuers in a particular capitalization range. It can invest in debt securities having short, intermediate or long maturities. The Fund does not limit its investments to a particular credit quality or rating category and can invest without limit in securities rated below investment grade (commonly called junk bonds). Investment grade debt securities are rated in one of the top four categories by nationally recognized statistical rating organizations such as Moodys Investors Service or S&P Global Ratings (S&P). The Fund may also invest in unrated securities,in which case the Funds investment adviser may internally assign ratings to certain of those securities, after assessing their credit quality, in investment- grade or below-investment-grade categories similar to those of nationally recognized statistical rating organizations. There can be no assurance, nor is it intended, that the investment advisers credit analysis is consistent or comparable with the credit analysis process used by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization. The Fund may also invest in certain restricted securities including securities that are only eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933 (referred to as Rule 144A Securities).
