It includes publicly issued U.S. corporate and foreign debentures and secured notes that meet specified maturity, liquidity and quality requirements.

Issues included in the index have maturities of at least one year and have a credit rating lower than “BBB- Baa3,” but are not in default. High-yield bonds are subject to more risks than investment-grade bonds, such as greater liquidity and credit risk and increased risk of default due to the lower credit quality of the issues. Emerging Markets Debt is represented by the J.P. Morgan Emerging Markets Bond Index Plus from January 1994 to December 2006 and the J.P. Morgan Emerging Markets Index from January 1992 through December 1993. The J.P.

Multi-Sector Fixed Income is represented by the Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond Index, which is a broad-based bond index comprised of government, corporate, mortgage and asset-backed issues, rated investment grade or higher and having at least one year to maturity. Fixed income investments are subject to interest rate risk. As rates rise, the price of fixed-income securities falls. There is also a risk than an issuer will be unable to make principal and/or interest payments. High-yield bonds are subject to increased risk of default and greater volatility due to the lower credit quality of the issues. Mortgage-backed securities involve additional risk of default and greater volatility due to the lower credit quality of the issues. Mortgage-backed securities involve additional risk over more traditional fixed-income investments, including: interest rate risk, implied call and extension risks, and the possibility of premature return of principal due to mortgage prepayment, which can reduce expected yield and lead to price volatility.
