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.
