Fund Description

The Fund invests, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of purchase) (“Net Assets”) in fixed income securities issued by or on behalf of states, territories and possessions of the United States (including the District of Columbia) and the political subdivisions, agencies and instrumentalities thereof (“Municipal Securities”), the interest on which is exempt from regular federal income tax (i.e., excluded from gross income for federal income tax purposes), and is not a tax preference item under the federal alternative minimum tax. Under normal market conditions, the Fund’s investments in private activity bonds and taxable investments will not exceed, in the aggregate, 20% of the Fund’s Net Assets. The interest from private activity bonds (including the Fund’s distributions of such interest) may be a preference item for purposes of the federal alternative minimum tax. 100% of the Fund’s portfolio will be invested in U.S. dollar-denominated securities.The Fund may also seek to obtain exposure to fixed income investments through investments in affiliated or unaffiliated investment companies, including exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”).The team uses a multi-faceted approach when evaluating whether to add or maintain exposure to any individual position. A top-down approach is used to assess broad macro trends while a bottom-up analysis is used to determine relative value between individual securities. As part of the team’s fundamental investment process, the team may integrate environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors alongside traditional fundamental factors. In addition, individual securities will be considered for purchase or sale based on credit profile, risk, structure, pricing, and portfolio impact, as well as duration management, restructuring, opportunistic trading and tax loss harvesting. No one factor or consideration is determinative in the fundamental investment process.Under normal interest rate conditions, the Fund’s duration is expected to approximate that of the Bloomberg Municipal Bond 1-3 Year Blend Index, plus or minus 0.5 years. (Historically, over the last five years, the duration of the Bloomberg Municipal Bond 1-3 Year Blend Index has ranged between 2.04 and 2.25 years). The reference to “Short Duration” in the Fund’s name refers to this duration. “Duration” is a measure of a debt security’s price sensitivity to changes in interest rates. The longer the duration of the Fund (or an individual debt security), the more sensitive its market price to changes in interest rates. For example, if market interest rates increase by 1%, the market price of a debt security with a positive duration of 3 years will generally decrease by approximately 3%. Conversely, a 1% decline in market interest rates will generally result in an increase of approximately 3% of that security’s market price.The Fund’s benchmark index is the Bloomberg Municipal Bond 1-3 Year Blend Index.
