The performance data quoted represents past performance, and is no guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your accumulation units or shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above. Performance may reflect waivers or reimbursements of certain expenses. Absent these waivers or reimbursement arrangements, performance results would have been lower. Since Inception performance shown is cumulative for funds that have less than one year of performance history. For investments with exceptional performance, please note that performance fluctuates and currently may be lower than noted here.

1The fund's Institutional Class began operations on 03/31/2006. Performance shown for the Since Inception period and prior to the inception of the Premier Class is based on the performance of the fund's Institutional Class.

2The Merrill Lynch BB/B Cash Pay Issuer Constrained Index measures the performance of securities that pay interest in cash and have a credit rating of BB or B. Merrill Lynch uses a composite of Fitch Ratings, Moody's and Standard and Poor's credit ratings in selecting bonds for this index. These ratings measure the risk that the bond issuer will fail to pay interest or to repay principal in full. You cannot invest directly in this index.
