*Standard & Poor’s fund ratings are based on analysis of credit quality, market price exposure and management. According to Standard & Poor’s rating criteria, the AAAm rating signifies excellent safety of invested principal and a superior capacity to maintain a $1.00 per share net asset value and the AAAf rating signifies that a portfolio’s holdings provide extremely strong protection against losses from credit defaults. However, it should be understood that these ratings are not “market” ratings or a recommendation to buy, hold or sell the securities.
