Investment return and principal value fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Please note these returns have been calculated utilizing the industry standard methodology which assumes all distributions are reinvested by the shareholder. Given that the Focused Credit has not permitted reinvestments since December 9, 2015 shareholders would only realize these rates of return if they invested the proceeds paid since that date at the rate earned by the fund.
