Fund Summary 
The investment seeks high current income; capital growth is a secondary goal when consistent with achieving high current income. The fund invests mainly in bonds that are obligations of U.S. companies, are below investment-grade in quality, and have intermediate- to long-term maturities (three years or longer). The advisor may consider, among other things, credit, interest rate and prepayment risks, as well as general market conditions, when deciding whether to buy or sell investments.
