The investment seeks the maximum amount of interest income exempt from federal income tax as is consistent with reasonable risk.
In pursuing its investment objective, the fund uses the volatility of the Barclays 1-15 Year Municipal Bond Index as an approximation of reasonable risk. To pursue its investment objective, under normal conditions, it invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in municipal bonds that pay interest exempt from federal income tax.
The investment seeks a high and sustainable level of current income that is exempt from federal personal income taxes.
The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in investment-grade municipal bonds, as determined by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO) (e.g., Baa or higher by Moody's Investors Service, Inc. (Moody's)) or, if unrated, determined to be of comparable quality by the advisor. Up to 20% of the fund's assets may be invested in bonds that are rated less than investment grade by an NRSRO (e.g., less than Baa by Moody's) or, if unrated, determined to be of comparable quality by the advisor.
