Current performance may be lower or higher than what is stated.

Performance quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Offering price figures reflect the maximum contingent deferred sales charge of 1% for C Shares. See the prospectus for other fees and expenses that apply to a continued investment in the fund.


§ The fund’s expense ratio is from the most recent prospectus. The expense ratio may reflect voluntary fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements determined by the fund’s Advisor and/or its affiliates. The voluntary waivers and/or reimbursements, if applicable, are in effect up to but not including the later of 01/01/2019 or the date of the fund’s next effective prospectus. The expense ratio includes Dividends and Other Expenses Related to Short Sales. If Dividends and Other Expenses Related to Short Sales were excluded, the total net expenses would have been 2.09%.

Total returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative.

Total return may have been lower in the absence of temporary expense waivers or reimbursements.

Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.

International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards.

Investment in gold and precious metals, put options and commodities are subject to additional risks.

The fund may make short sales of securities, which involves unlimited risk including the possibility that losses may exceed the original amount invested.

An investment in an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) generally presents the same primary risks as an investment in a fund that is not exchange traded and may also be subject to other risks, such as: (i) ETF shares may trade above or below their net asset value; (ii) an active trading market for an ETF’s shares may not develop or be maintained and (iii) trading of an ETF’s shares may be halted by the listing exchange’s officials.

Absolute return investing may outperform broad markets during periods of flat or negative market performance but may not outperform stocks and bonds
during market rallies.

The fund’s use of derivative instruments involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in securities and other traditional instruments.

The fund may not achieve its objective.

After-tax returns are calculated using a standard set of assumptions. Actual after-tax returns depend on each investor’s personal tax situation, and are likely to differ from those shown. The stated returns assume the highest historical federal income and capital gains tax rates, but do not reflect the effect of any applicable state and local taxes. Return After Taxes on Distributions assumes a continued investment in the fund and shows the effect of taxes on fund distributions. Return After Taxes on Distribution and Sale of Fund Shares assumes all shares were redeemed at the end of each measurement period, and shows the effect of any taxable gain (or offsetting loss) on redemption, as well as the effects of taxes on fund distributions. After-tax returns are not relevant to investors holding shares through tax-deferred programs, such as IRA, 401(k) plans. The after-tax average annual total returns are based on the 37% tax bracket and include the 3.8% tax on net investment income.

Investors should carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing.

Please carefully read the summary prospectus or prospectus before investing.
