Fund Description

Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests at least 80% of the sum of its net assets and the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes in municipal bonds that pay interest that is exempt from regular federal personal income tax. These municipal bonds include obligations issued by U.S. states and their subdivisions, authorities, instrumentalities and corporations, as well as obligations issued by U.S. territories (such as Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam) that pay interest that is exempt from regular federal personal income tax. The Fund may invest without limit in securities that generate income subject to the alternative minimum tax on individuals. For tax years beginning after December 31, 2022, income received from the Fund’s municipal bonds may affect the federal corporate alternative minimum tax for certain corporations. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will generally maintain an investment portfolio with a weighted average effective duration of less than 4.5 years.
The Fund invests significantly in lower-quality municipal bonds and may employ effective leverage through investments in inverse floaters. These investment strategies should be considered high risk relative to strategies employed by investment grade municipal bond funds.
The Fund generally invests at least 65% of its net assets in low- to medium-quality bonds rated BBB/Baa or lower at the time of purchase by at least one independent rating agency or, if unrated, judged by the Fund’s sub-adviser to be of comparable quality, although it may invest less than this amount during abnormal market conditions or periods of large cash inflows or outflows. Below investment grade municipal bonds (those rated BB/Ba or lower) are commonly referred to as “high yield” or “junk” bonds. The Fund may invest up to 10% of its net assets in defaulted municipal bonds (i.e., bonds on which the issuer has not paid principal or interest on time).
The Fund may invest in all types of municipal bonds, including general obligation bonds, revenue bonds and participation interests in municipal leases. The Fund may invest in zero coupon bonds, which are issued at substantial discounts from their value at maturity and pay no cash income to their holders until they mature.
The Fund may invest up to 15% of its net assets in municipal securities whose interest payments vary inversely with changes in short-term tax-exempt interest rates (“inverse floaters”). Inverse floaters are derivative securities that provide leveraged exposure to underlying municipal bonds. The Fund’s investments in inverse floaters are designed to increase the Fund’s income and returns through this leveraged exposure. These investments are speculative, however, and also create the possibility that income and returns will be diminished. The Fund may invest in inverse floaters that create effective leverage of up to 15% of the Fund’s total investment exposure. The Fund will only invest in inverse floating rate securities whose underlying bonds are rated A or higher.
The Fund may utilize the following derivatives: futures contracts; options on futures contracts; swap agreements, including interest rate swaps, total return swaps and credit default swaps, and options on swap agreements. The Fund may use these derivatives in an attempt to manage market risk, credit risk and yield curve risk, to manage the effective maturity or duration of securities in the Fund’s portfolio or for speculative purposes in an effort to increase the Fund’s yield or to enhance returns. The use of a derivative is speculative if the Fund is primarily seeking to enhance returns, rather than offset the risk of other positions.
The Fund’s sub-adviser uses a research-intensive investment process to identify high-yielding municipal bonds that offer attractive value in terms of their current yields, prices, credit quality, liquidity and future prospects. The sub-adviser may choose to sell municipal bonds with deteriorating credit or limited upside potential compared to other available bonds.
