Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets in municipal securities and other investments with similar economic characteristics, the interest on which is exempt from regular federal income tax but which may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax. The fund’s 80% policy may not be changed without a shareholder vote.
Municipal securities include debt obligations issued by any of the 50 states and certain other municipal issuers and their political subdivisions, agencies and public authorities, certain other governmental issuers (such as Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam) and other qualifying issuers. These securities include participation or other interests in municipal securities issued or backed by banks, insurance companies and other financial institutions.
The fund normally invests in intermediate-term and long-term municipal securities that have remaining maturities from one to more than thirty years at the time of purchase. The fund focuses on investment grade bonds (that is, securities rated in the Baa/BBB categories or above or, if unrated or deemed to be unrated by the subadviser, determined to be of comparable credit quality by the subadviser), but may invest up to 20% of its assets in below investment grade bonds (commonly known as “high yield” or “junk” bonds).
Some municipal securities, such as general obligation issues, are backed by the issuer’s taxing authority, while other municipal securities, such as revenue issues, are backed only by revenues from certain facilities or other sources and not by the issuer itself.
The fund may also invest in securities of other open-end or closed-end investment companies, including exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”), that invest primarily in municipal securities.
  
Instead of, and/or in addition to, investing directly in particular securities, the fund may use instruments such as derivatives, including options, futures contracts and inverse floating rate instruments issued in tender option bond transactions, and other synthetic instruments that are intended to provide economic exposure to the securities or the issuer or to be used as a hedging technique. The fund may use one or more types of these instruments without limit, except that these instruments are taken into account when determining compliance with the fund’s 80% policy. For additional information regarding derivatives, see “More on the fund’s investment strategies, investments and risks—Derivatives” in the Prospectus. 
The fund may also engage in a variety of transactions using derivatives in order to change the investment characteristics of its portfolio (such as shortening or lengthening duration) and for other purposes. The fund may leverage its assets by investing proceeds received through tender option bond transactions, which is considered a form of borrowing. See “More on the fund’s investment strategies, investments and risks—Tender option bonds” in the Prospectus.
