Summary

If you are an aggressive investor seeking a high level of current income that is largely free from federal income tax, you may find this Fund provides an attractive complement to a well-diversified portfolio. The Fund is best suited for long-term higher income investors willing to assume the additional risks associated with investing in high yield securities including above-average share price fluctuations. Income from the Fund may be subject to federal alternative minimum tax (AMT), state and local taxes. The Fund invests in municipalities that issue medium and lower-quality debt. Lower-quality debt or high yield securities are commonly know as "non-investment grade debt" or "junk bonds." While offering higher current yields, these securities generally are considered speculative and are subject to greater risks than higher-rated bonds.

Fund Objective

High Current Tax-Exempt Income

Fund Strategy

  • Concentrate primarily on municipalities that issue medium (rated A and BBB) and lower-quality debt (rated BBB and below). Lower-quality debt or high-yield securities are also commonly referred to as "non-investment grade" or "junk bonds."
  • Manage to a benchmark index of 65% investment grade and 35% non-investment grade bonds.
  • Select investments on the basis of their relative value with a focus on total return.
