Summary

If you are an aggressive investor seeking high current income and the potential for capital appreciation for a portion of your assets, you may find this Fund provides an attractive complement to a well-diversified portfolio. This Fund may be a good choice for long-term investors willing to assume the additional risks associated with investing in high yield securities including above-average share price fluctuations. Our knowledgeable investment team focuses primarily on high-yielding, lower-rated corporate bonds (those rated BB or below; these are commonly referred to as "non-investment grade" or "junk bonds"). We believe these securities offer the opportunity for higher income and greater total return potential than is generally available from high-quality, investment-grade securities.
