Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the funds carefully before investing. This and other

Net Assets information is based on net asset value accounting. As such, shareholder purchases and redemptions placed on a particular business day are not
reflected in the net assets reported as of such business day and will instead generally be included in the net assets on the following business day.
Estimated Monthly Net Cash Flows include shareholder purchase and redemption orders and dividend reinvestment but exclude most cash dividends. Unlike Net
Assets information, which is based on net asset value accounting, Estimated Monthly Net Cash Flows are based on the business day when shareholder purchase
and redemption orders are received. This information is unaudited and may be revised at a later date.
A word about risk
: All investments contain risk and may lose value. Investors should refer to the Fund's prospectus for a complete detail of the applicable
Barclays U.S. Aggregate Index represents securities that are SEC-registered, taxable, and dollar denominated. The index covers the U.S. investment grade
fixed rate bond market, with index components for government and corporate securities, mortgage pass-through securities, and asset-backed securities. These
major sectors are subdivided into more specific indices that are calculated and reported on a regular basis. Morningstar Intermediate-term Bond Fund
Average has average durations that are greater than 3.5 years and less than six years. Most of the funds rotate among a variety of sectors in the bond
market, based upon which appear to offer better values. Whatever types of bonds they hold, these funds are less sensitive to interest rates, and therefore
less volatile, than funds that have longer durations. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
The performance figures presented reflect the total return performance and reflect changes in share price and reinvestment of dividend and capital gain
distributions. All periods longer than one year are annualized. The minimum initial investment for the Institutional class shares is $1 million; however,
it may be modified for certain financial intermediaries who submit trades on behalf of eligible investors.
