All funds may experience periods of negative performance.
1 For each managed product, including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts, with
at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating TM based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly excess
performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Exchange-traded funds and open-end mutual funds are considered
a single population for comparative purposes. The top 10.0% of funds in each category, the next 22.5%, 35.0%, 22.5%, and bottom 10.0% receive 5, 4, 3, 2, or 1 star(s),
respectively. The overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-, and 10-year
(if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The rating formula most heavily weights the 3-year rating, using the following calculation: 100% 3-year rating for 36 to 59
months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60 to 119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-year rating for
120 or more months of total returns. Star ratings do not reflect the effect of any applicable sales load. As of 9/30/19, the fund was rated 4, 4, and 5 stars out of 539, 448,
and 332 intermediate core-plus bond funds for the 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods, respectively. Please note that Class I shares may not be available to all investors and that
performance of other share classes may vary. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

Fixed-income investments are subject to interest-rate and credit risk; their value will normally decline as interest rates rise or if an issuer is unable or
unwilling to make principal or interest payments. Investments in higher-yielding, lower-rated securities include a higher risk of default. Liquidity—the
extent to which a security may be sold or a derivative position closed without negatively affecting its market value, if at all—may be impaired by
reduced trading volume, heightened volatility, rising interest rates, and other market conditions. The use of hedging and derivatives could produce
disproportionate gains or losses and may increase costs. Fund distributions generally depend on income from underlying investments and may vary
or cease altogether in the future. Please see the fund’s prospectus for additional risks.
