Fund Facts

Option-adjusted duration estimates how much the value of a bond portfolio would be affected by a change in prevailing interest rates. It takes into account options embedded in the individual securities that might result in early repayment of principal, thereby shortening their duration. The longer a portfolio's duration, the more sensitive it is to changes in interest rates.

Average Maturity refers to the average time to maturity (the date a principal amount of a security becomes due or payable) of all the debt securities held in a portfolio. A relatively short average maturity results in smaller price fluctuations in response to changes in market rates of interest. A short average maturity subjects the owner of a debt portfolio to the risk that maturing debt will be replaced with debt carrying a lower interest rate.
