Important Risk Considerations
Credit and Interest: Debt securities are subject to various risks, the most prominent of which are credit and interest rate risk. The issuer of a debt security may fail to make interest and/or credit payments. Values of debt securities may rise or fall in response to changes in interest rates, and this risk may be enhanced with longer term maturities.
Municipal Market: Events negatively impacting a municipal security, or the municipal bond market in general, may cause the fund to decrease in value.
Tax Liability: Noncompliant conduct by a municipal bond issuer, or adverse interpretations, could cause interest from a security to become taxable, subjecting shareholders to increased tax liability.
Industry/Sector Concentration: A fund that focuses its investments in a particular industry or sector will be more sensitive to conditions that affect that industry or sector than a non-concentrated fund.
State and AMT Tax: A portion of income may be subject to some state and/or local taxes and, for certain investors, a portion may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax.
No Guarantee: There is no guarantee that the portfolio will meet its objective.
Leverage: When a fund leverages its portfolio, the value of its shares may be more volatile and all other risks may be compounded.
Market Volatility: Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issue, recessions, or other events could have a significant impact on the fund and its investments, including hampering the ability of the fund's portfolio manager(s) to invest the fund's assets as intended.
