Investors should be able to withstand short-term fluctuations in the fixed income markets in return for potentially higher returns over the long term. The value of portfolios changes every day and can be affected by changes in interest rates, general market conditions and other political, social and economic developments.
Investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed.
Income from municipal bonds may be subject to state and local taxes and at times the alternative minimum tax.
The strategy also invests in derivative instruments, investments whose values depend on the performance of the underlying security, assets, interest rate, index or currency and entail potentially higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments.
As the strategy's exposure in any one municipal revenue sector backed by revenues from similar types of projects increases, a portfolio will also become more sensitive to adverse economic, business or political developments relevant to these projects.
Holdings are subject to change. Totals may not sum due to rounding.
Effective duration is a measure of the portfolio’s return sensitivity to changes in interest rates.
Credits: Obligations such as bonds, notes, loans, leases and other forms of indebtedness, except for Cash and Cash Equivalents, issued by obligors other than the U.S. Government and its agencies, totaled at the level of the ultimate obligor or guarantor of the Obligation.
