Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than that shown here. Return periods greater than one year reflect annualized performance.
An investment in the Fund is subject to interest rate risk, which is the possibility that a Fund's yield will decline due to falling interest rates and the potential for bond prices to fall as interest rates rise. For some investors, income may be subject to state and/or local taxes, and certain investors may be subject to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). The Fund's focus on investments in securities located in a single state makes the fund susceptible to economic, political and regulatory events that affect that state. This fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest in securities of relatively few issuers. As a result, the Fund may be more susceptible than a diversified fund to a single adverse economic or political and regulatory occurrence affecting one or more issuers. Economic or political changes may impact the ability of municipal issuers to repay principal and interest payments on securities of the Fund, which may adversely impact the Fund’s shares. The Fund may be subject to call risk, which is the risk of a bond being called prior to maturity. The Fund may be subject to prepayment risk, the risk that the principal of a fixed income security that is held by the Fund may be prepaid prior to maturity, potentially forcing the Fund to reinvest that money at a lower interest rate.

Morningstar Star Ratings:The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Ratings are for the share class shown; other classes may vary.

Lipper Ratings: Ratings for Total Return reflect fund’s historical total return performance relative to peers. Lipper Leader ratings do not take into account the effects of sales charges. The Lipper ratings are subject to change every month and are based on an equal-rated average of the percentile ranks for the Total Return metrics over three-, five- and ten-year periods, if applicable. The highest of 20% of funds in each peer group are named Lipper Leaders or a 5, the next 20% receive a rating of 4, the middle 20% a rating of 3, the next 20% a 2 rating and the lowest 20% a rating of 1.
