Important Risks: The Fund is actively managed and its characteristics will vary. Bond values fluctuate in price so the value of
your investment can go down depending on market conditions. The principal on mortgage- or asset-backed securities normally
may be prepaid at any time, which reduces the yield and market value of those securities. Obligations of U.S. govt agencies
and authorities are supported by varying degrees of credit but generally are not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S.
govt. Investing in derivatives entails specific risks relating to liquidity, leverage and credit that may reduce returns and increase
volatility. International investing includes risks related to foreign currency, limited liquidity, less government regulation and the
possibility of substantial volatility due to adverse political, economic or other developments. These risks often are heightened for
investments in emerging/developing markets or smaller capital markets. Investments in non-investment-grade debt securities
(high-yield or junk bonds) may be subject to greater market fluctuations and risk of default or loss of income and principal
than securities in higher rating categories. The fund may actively engage in short-selling, which entails special risks. If the fund
makes short sales in securities that increase in value, the fund will lose value. Any loss on short positions may or may not be
offset by investing short-sale proceeds in other investments.
1 The Morningstar Analyst Rating is not a credit or risk rating. It is a subjective evaluation performed by the mutual fund analysts of Morningstar, Inc. Morningstar evaluates funds based on
five key pillars, which are process, performance, people, parent, and price. Morningstars analysts use this five-pillar evaluation to identify funds they believe are more likely to outperform
over the long term on a risk-adjusted basis. Analysts consider quantitative and qualitative factors in their research, and the weighting of each pillar may vary. The Analyst Rating ultimately
reflects the analysts overall assessment and is overseen by Morningstars Analyst Rating Committee. The approach serves not as a formula but as a framework to ensure consistency
across Morningstars global coverage universe. The Analyst Rating scale ranges from Gold to Negative, with Gold being the highest rating and Negative being the lowest rating. A Bronzerated fund has advantages that outweigh the disadvantages across the five pillars, with sufficient level of analyst conviction to warrant a positive rating. Analyst Ratings are reevaluated
at least every 14 months. For more detailed information about Morningstars Analyst Rating, including its methodology, please go to http://corporate.morningstar.com/us/documents/
MethodologyDocuments/AnalystRatingforFundsMethodology.pdf. The Morningstar Analyst Rating should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating a mutual fund. Morningstar
Analyst Ratings are based on Morningstars current expectations about future events; therefore, in no way does Morningstar represent ratings as a guarantee nor should
they be viewed by an investor as such. Morningstar Analyst Ratings involve unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause Morningstars expectations not to occur
or to differ significantly from what we expected. 2 Rated against 913 Intermediate-Term Bond Funds, as of 12/31/14, based on risk-adjusted total return. Ratings are determined
monthly and subject to change. The Overall Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Rating
metrics. For each fund with a 3-year history, a Morningstar Rating is calculated based on risk adjusted return that account for variations in a funds monthly performance (including
sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds receive 5 stars, the next 22.5%
receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale
and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Institutional share class of the fund was rated against the following numbers of U.S.-domiciled
Intermediate-Term bond funds over the following time periods: 913, 807 and 588 in the last 3, 5 and 10 years, respectively. The fund received a Morningstar Rating of 5, 5 and 3 stars for
the 3-, 5- and 10-year periods, respectively. Other classes may have different performance characteristics. The rating provided for the 10-year period is an extended rating. Morningstar
calculates extended performance for a younger share class based on the performance of the oldest share class and will adjust the performance history of the original portfolio to reflect any
differences in fees between the original share class and the new share class.
