The Spectrum Income Fund offers a highly diversified approach to income investing. This can help reduce risk because poor performance in one of the fund's investments can be offset by better performance in other areas. The fund's underlying holdings should provide the potential for a high level of current income and the potential for attractive long-term returns with moderate risk. The fund can serve as a bond fund core holding and can be used to diversify an equity portfolio.

The fund's risks will directly correspond to the risks of the underlying funds in which it invests. By investing in many underlying funds, the fund has partial exposure to the risks of many different areas of the market. However, the selection of the underlying funds and the allocation of the fund's assets among the various asset classes and market sectors could cause the fund to underperform other funds with a similar investment objective.
* 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.
