Issuer risk is the risk that the value of fixed income securities will decline for a number of reasons directly related to the issuer.

Prepayment risk is the risk that, upon prepayment, the actual outstanding debt on which the Fund earns interest income will be reduced.

A mortgage-backed security can be adversely affected by the quality of the underlying mortgages to that security and by the structure of its issuer. For example, if a mortgage underlying a particular mortgage title defaults, that security’s value may decrease. In addition, a downturn in residential or commercial real estate markets or a general economic downturn could negatively affect both the price and liquidity of mortgage-backed securities issued by the private sector. A portion of the Fund’s managed assets may be invested in subordinated classes of mortgage backed securities. These subordinate classes are subject to a higher risk of non-payment than the senior classes of the same issuer or agency.

To the extent that a fund invests in floating or variable rate bonds which use the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) as the benchmark interest rate, it is subject to LIBOR risk. The UK Financial Conduct Authority, which regulates LIBOR, will stop offering LIBOR as a benchmark rate over a phase-out period that will begin immediately after December 31, 2021.

The main risks associated with the use of futures contracts are (a) the imperfect correlation between the change in the market value of the instruments or indices underlying the futures contracts and the price of the futures contracts; (b) the possible absence of a liquid secondary market for a futures contract and the resulting inability to close a futures contract when desired; (c) losses caused by unforeseen market movements, which are potentially unlimited; (d) the failure of the investment adviser to correctly forecast the direction of securities prices, interest rates, currency exchange rates and other economic factors; and (e) the possibility that the counterparty will default in the performance of its obligations.

If the price of a security sold short increases, the Fund may have to hedge its short position at a higher price than the short sale price, resulting in a loss.

Repo agreements are subject to the risk of failure. If the Fund’s counterparty defaults and the Fund is delayed or prevented from recovering the collateral, or if the value of the collateral is insufficient, the Fund may realize a loss.
