Credit quality is a measure of a bond issuer’s ability to repay
interest and principal in a timely manner. The credit ratings
shown are based on each portfolio security’s rating as provided by
Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s Investors Service and/or Fitch
Ratings, Ltd. and typically range from AAA (highest) to D
(lowest), or an equivalent and/or similar rating. For this
purpose, Brandywine Global Investment Management assigns each
security the middle rating from these three agencies. When only
two agencies provide ratings, the lower of the two ratings will be
assigned. When only one agency assigns a rating, that rating will
be used. All securities have ratings from at least one agency. The
credit quality of the investments in the Fund’s portfolio does not
apply to the stability or safety of the Fund. These ratings are
updated monthly and may change over time. Please note, the Fund
itself has not been rated by an independent rating agency.

*** The difference between total assets and net assets, if any, is due
primarily to the Fund’s use of borrowings; net assets do not include
borrowings. The Fund may employ leverage in the form of loans,
preferred stock, reverse repurchase agreements and/or other
instruments. When the Fund engages in transactions that have a
leveraging effect on the Fund’s portfolio, the value of the Fund
will be more volatile and all other risks will tend to be compounded.
**** Percentages based on total assets.
***** Under the terms of the Fund’s managed distribution policy, the Fund
will seek to maintain a consistent distribution level derived from
the income generated from the Fund’s fixed income investments.
Shareholders should note that if the Fund’s aggregate net investment
income and net realized capital gains are less than the amount of
the distributions paid, the difference will be distributed from the
Fund’s assets and may constitute a return of the shareholder’s
capital. The Board of Directors may terminate the managed
distribution policy at any time. Any such termination could have an
adverse effect on the market price of the Fund’s shares.

An investment in the Fund involves risk, including loss of principal.
Investment return and the value of shares will fluctuate. Fixed income

risks due to currency fluctuations, changes in interest rates and other
factors. These risks are greater for emerging markets securities. The
Fund’s investments in mortgage-backed securities involve additional
risks.

The Fund may invest in foreign currencies or currency derivatives which
may increase the risk and volatility of the Fund. The Fund may invest in
illiquid securities and securities/investments that have a leveraging
effect on the portfolio which will increase the risks of the Fund. The
Fund may make significant investments in derivative instruments.

Derivative instruments can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase
losses and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance.
