About Risk

Municipal bond risks include the ability of the issuerto repay the obligation, the relative lack of information about certain issuers, and the possibility of future tax and legislative changes, which could affect the market for and value of municipalsecurities. Investing in below investment grade securitiesmay carry a greater risk of nonpayment of interest or principal than higher-rated securities.

Liquidity risk is the risk that certain securitiesmay be difficult or impossible to sell at the time that the seller would like or at the price that the seller believes the security is currently worth.

Income Risk: The Fund’s income may decline when interestrates fall or if there are defaultsin its portfolio. This decline can occur because the Fund may subsequently invest in lower-yielding securities when securitiesin its portfolio mature or the Fund otherwise needs to purchase additional securities
