4 Relative to the BofA ML U.S. High Yield Index.

5 Investment Grade is a Bond Quality Rating of AAA, AA, A or BBB. Security quality ratings are derived from underlying portfolio securities by using the middle rating of Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch. If only two of Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch rates a security the higher of the two is selected. If only one of Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch rates a security the available rating is used. For securities that are not rated by Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, or Fitch a rating from a secondary Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (“NRSRO”) may be used. Ratings by any agency represent an opinion only, not a recommendation to buy or sell. Securities that are not rated by any agencies are reflected as Not Rated “NR”.
