Market Risk
Even a long-term investment approach cannot guarantee a profit. Economic, political, and issuer-specific events will cause the value of securities, and the funds that own them, to rise or fall. Because the value of your investment in a fund will fluctuate, there is a risk that you will lose money.

Interest Rate Risk
Fixed income securities are subject to interest rate risk because the prices of fixed income securities tend to move in the opposite direction of interest rates. In general, fixed income securities with longer maturities are more sensitive to these price changes.

Credit Risk
Credit risk is the risk that the issuer of a security may be unable to make interest payments and/or repay principal when due. A downgrade to an issuer's credit rating or a perceived change in an issuer's financial strength may affect a security's value, and thus, impact a fund's performance. Credit risk is greater for fixed income securities with ratings below investment grade. Fixed income securities that are below investment grade involve high credit risk and are considered speculative. Below-investment grade fixed income securities may also fluctuate in value more than higher-quality fixed income securities.

Risk of Banking Concentration
The fund may temporarily concentrate its assets in obligations of US and/or foreign banks and bank holding companies when the yield to maturity on eligible portfolio investments in banking industry securities as a group generally exceeds the yield to maturity on all other eligible portfolio investments as a group. Focus on the banking industry would link the performance of the fund to changes in the performance of the banking industry. For example, a change in the market's perception of the riskiness of banks compared to non-banks would cause the fund's values to fluctuate.

Income Risk
Income risk is the risk that falling interest rates will cause the fund's income to decline.
