Actively managed diversified portfolio of intermediate-term investment grade municipal bonds with an average maturity of three to ten years and duration of four to six years.
Proven bottom-up fundamental approach that incorporates a top-down macroeconomic overlay to identify what we perceive to be the most attractive opportunities on a relative value basis across geographic regions, sectors, issuers and revenue streams.
Relative value philosophy that seeks to maximize tax-exempt income while minimizing changes in its share value. The fund focuses on identifying attractive value in the investment-grade municipal bond market. We apply a strict discipline of fundamental credit research and strive to produce an attractive dividend while avoiding the long maturities that are most vulnerable to interest-rate swings.
The fund’s goal is to provide investors with as high a level of current income exempt from federal individual income tax as is consistent with preservation of capital. The fund also seeks to reduce share price volatility compared to longer-term bond portfolios.
The fund is an actively managed diversified portfolio of municipal bonds. The investment team applies a relative value framework, focusing on fundamentals and valuations to identify inefficiencies in the market. Team members are responsible for credit research, portfolio construction, trading and risk oversight and have the flexibility to source ideas across sector, geography and issuer. The strategy maintains exposure across the maturity spectrum to manage duration, hedge against interest rate fluctuations and limit taxable events.

This communication is not authorized for distribution to prospective investors in the Fund unless preceded or accompanied by an effective prospectus.
Investments carry risks, including possible loss of principal. Portfolios investing in bonds have the same interest rate, inflation, and credit risks that are associated with the underlying bonds. The value of bonds will fluctuate relative to changes in interest rates, decreasing when interest rates rise. Unlike bonds, bond funds have ongoing fees and expenses. Investments in the Fund are not FDIC insured, nor are they bank deposits or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity.
Credit quality ratings use the highest rating available from either S&P Global Ratings or Moody's Investors Service. Unrated securities are evaluated by the firm using available data and their own analysis that may be similar to that of a nationally recognized rating agency; however, such determination is not equivalent to a national agency credit rating. "NR" = Not Rated.
A bond credit rating assesses the financial ability of a debt issuer to make timely payments of principal and interest. Ratings of AAA (the highest), AA, A, and BBB are investment-grade quality. Ratings of BB, B, CCC, CC, C and D (the lowest) are considered below investment grade, speculative grade, or junk bonds.
Diversification does not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses.
Income earned from municipal bonds is exempt from regular federal and in some cases, state and local income tax. Income may be subject to the alternative minimum tax (AMT).
Neither the payment of, or increase in, dividends is guaranteed.
The laddering strategy does not assure or guarantee better performance than a non-laddered portfolio and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses.
Class I shares may not be available to all investors. Minimum investments for the I share class may be higher than those for other classes.
There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its investment objectives.
