    Fund Summary 
    The investment seeks high current income consistent with prudent risk. The fund invests mainly in bonds that are securitized debt instruments (such as mortgage-backed investments) and other obligations of companies and governments worldwide denominated in U.S. dollars, are either investment-grade or below-investment-grade in quality (sometimes referred to as "junk bonds") and have intermediate- to long-term maturities (three years or longer). It typically uses to a significant extent derivatives, such as futures, options, and swap contracts, for both hedging and non-hedging purposes.
