Figures shown are past results and are not predictive of results in future periods. Current and future results may be lower or higher than those shown. Investment returns will vary. Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value. An investment in the money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency. Although the fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the fund. Returns with sales charge for Class B shares reflect the deduction of a contingent deferred sales charge (up to 5%) on shares sold within the first six years of purchase.

The value of fixed-income securities may be affected by changing interest rates and changes in credit ratings of the securities. Investing outside the United States involves risks, such as currency fluctuations, periods of illiquidity and price volatility, as more fully described in the prospectus. These risks may be heightened in connection with investments in developing countries.
Although the fund has 12b-1 plans for certain share classes, it is currently suspending certain 12b-1 payments in this low interest rate environment. Should payments commence, the fund's investment results will be lower.

When applicable, investment results reflect fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements, without which results would have been lower. See results without waivers and/or reimbursements. Read details about how waivers and/or reimbursements affect the results for each fund.
