Moderately aggressive investors have the opportunity for an attractive level of federal tax-free income through this investment-grade bond fund. The fundís focus on longer-term bonds means it offers higher income potential than shorter-term, federal tax-free funds but with greater price volatility.

Yield and share price will vary with interest rate changes. Investors should note that if interest rates rise significantly from current levels, bond fund total returns will decline and may even turn negative in the short term. There is also a chance that one of the fundís holdings will have its credit rating downgraded or will default.
* Funds are placed in general risk/return categories based on their 10-year standard deviation (as of December 2015) or, for newer funds, the standard deviation of the types of securities in which they invest. There is no assurance past trends will continue.
