The Merrill Lynch Global High Yield Constrained Index tracks the performance of below investment grade bonds of corporate issuers domiciled in countries with an investment grade foreign currency long-term debt rating (based on a composite of Moody’s and S&P). The index is weighted by outstanding issuance, but constrained such that the percentage of any one issuer may not represent more than 2% of the Index. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for emerging markets. Derivatives such as futures, forwards, and swaps involve risks different from, and in certain cases, greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments. Short sales of securities involves the risk that losses in securities may exceed the original amount invested. Non-diversified funds may be more volatile than diversified funds that hold a greater number of securities. Absolute return funds may not achieve their goals and are not intended to outperform stocks and bonds during strong market rallies and may underperform during periods of strong positive market performance.
