Investment Objective The investment seeks to provide a high level of current income; the secondary investment objective is capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in higher yielding and generally lower quality debt securities (rated Ba1 or below or BB+ or below by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization or unrated but determined by the fund's investment adviser to be of equivalent quality), including corporate loan obligations. It may also invest a portion of its assets in securities of issuers domiciled outside the United States.
