DIRECT LINK TO STANDARDIZED PERFORMANCE INFORMATION


Performance data quoted represents past performance.  Past performance does not guarantee future results, investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost, and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.  Investors may call 1-800-866-0614 to obtain performance data current to the most recent month-end.

You may lose money investing in the Fund. Mutual fund shares are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed or endorsed by, any bank or the U.S. government.  Securities held by the fund may be downgraded or default, lowering the value of the securities.  For single state funds, regional factors may cause the fund to decline in value more than a fund holding securities from many states.  The fund is subject to management risk, because it is an actively managed investment portfolio.  There is no guarantee that the investment objectives of the fund will be achieved.  As interest rates rise, bond prices fall.

Yield data shown is based on calculations as further explained in the Statement of Additional Information which is available upon request. The 30 Day Distribution Yield represents the annualized average dividend divided by the average number of shares for the past 30 days. The 30 Day Compound Yield represents the 30 Day Distribution Yield compounded quarterly for those shareholders who elect to reinvest dividends. NAV Per Share is defined as Net Asset Value per share.  Nominal Maturity is the dollar-weighted average number of years to final maturity of bonds held in the portfolio.  Average Effective Maturity is the dollar-weighted average of the number of years to the likely redemption date of the securities held in the portfolio, taking into account embedded options such as call features.  Duration is a measure of the interest rate sensitivity of securities held in the portfolio, taking into account embedded options such as call features.  AMT is Federal Alternative Minimum Tax.  Performance data shown represents past performance and is not a guarantee of future results.  Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so you may have a gain or loss when shares are sold. Quoted fund expenses are taken from the fee table of the most recent prospectus. 

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fundís monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance.  The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.
