It invests at least 80% of its assets in corporate bonds that are rated below Baa by Moody's Investors Service- Inc. (Moody's); have an equivalent rating by any other independent bond-rating agency; or- if unrated- are determined to be of comparable quality by the fund's advisor. The fund's high-yield bonds and loans mostly have short- and intermediate-term maturities.
