The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested. • Investing in assets denominated in a currency other than that of the investor’s own currency exposes the value of the investment to exchange rate fluctuations • The Fund invests in bonds whose value generally falls when interest rates rise. This risk is typically greater the longer the maturity of a bond investment and the higher its credit quality.
