(1) The Fund’s portfolio is actively managed, and its portfolio composition will vary over time.

(2) Excludes exposures obtained via derivatives (e.g., swaps).

(3) Credit quality ratings shown are based on those assigned by Standard & Poor’s, a division of the McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. (“S&P”), to individual portfolio holdings. S&P is an independent ratings agency. Rating reflected represents S&P individual debt issue credit rating. While S&P may provide a credit rating for a bond issuer (e.g., a specific company or country); certain issues, such as some sovereign debt, may not be covered or rated and therefore are reflected as non-rated for the purposes of this table.

(4) S&P downgraded long-term US government debt on August 5, 2011 to AA+. Other rating agencies continue to rate long-term US government debt in their highest ratings categories. The Fund’s aggregate exposure to AA rated debt as of June 30, 2012 would include the percentages indicated above for AA, US Treasury and US Agency debt but has been broken out into three separate categories to facilitate understanding.

(5) Includes agency debentures and agency mortgage-backed securities.
