Tax-Exempt Bond Inst Fund (PITEX)







Total Returns



Investment results shown represent historical performance and do not guarantee future results. Investment returns and principal values fluctuate with changes in interest rates and other market conditions so the value, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original costs. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data shown.

In situations where the net and gross total investment expense figures are different, the mutual fund or the underlying fund in which a Separate Account invests has waived/capped a portion of its management fees through the date displayed in the waiver expiration date or contractual cap expiration date column. Differences may also be shown due to the fund family choosing to pay certain expenses that would normally be payable by the fund. Returns displayed are based on net total investment expense.

The Bloomberg Municipal Index measures the performance of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Municipal bond, which covers the USD-denominated Long-Term tax exempt bond market with four main sectors: state and local general obligation bonds, revenue bonds, insured bonds and pre-refunded bonds.

These calculated returns reflect the historical performance of the oldest share class of the fund, adjusted to reflect a portion of the fees and expenses of this share class. For time periods prior to inception date of the fund, predecessor performance is reflected. Please see the fund's prospectus for more information on specific expenses, and the fund's most recent shareholder report for actual date of first sale. Expenses are deducted from income earned by the fund. As a result, dividends and investment results will differ for each share class.

Fixed-income investment options are subject to interest rate risk, and their value will decline as interest rates rise. A portion of the Fund's income may be subject to state and/or local taxes, and it may be subject to federal alternative minimum tax (AMT) for certain investors.
