All investments involve some level of risk. Simply defined, risk is the possibility that you will lose money or not make money. Before you invest, please make sure you understand the risks that apply to the fund. As with any mutual fund, you could lose money over any period of time. Investments in the fund are not bank deposits and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Principal risk factors for the fund include:

BELOW INVESTMENT GRADE SECURITIES RISK:

Below investment grade securities are regarded as being predominantly speculative as to the issuer’s ability to make payments of principal and interest.

COLLATERALIZED LOAN OBLIGATIONS RISK:

CLOs are subject to the risk of substantial losses due to actual defaults, decrease of market value due to collateral defaults and disappearance of subordinate tranches, marker anticipation of defaults, and aversion to CLO securities as a class

CONFLICT OF INTEREST RISK:

Affiliates of Credit Suisse may act as underwriter, lead agent or administrative agent for loans and participate in the secondary market for loans

CONVERTIBLE SECURTIES RISK:

The market value of a convertible security performs like that of a regular debt security; that is, if market interest rates rise, the value of a convertible security usually falls.

CREDIT RISK:

The issuer of a security or the counterparty to a contract, including derivatives contracts, may default or otherwise become unable to honor a financial obligation.

DERIVATIVES RISK:

The fund’s use of derivative instruments involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in securities and other traditional investments. Derivatives are subject to a number of risks such as commodity exposure risks, interest rate risk, market risk and credit risk.

EXTENSION RISK:

An unexpected rise in interest rates may extend the life of a mortgage-backed security beyond the expected prepayment time, typically reducing the security's value

FOREIGN SECURITIES RISK:

A fund that invests outside the U.S. carries additional risks that include:

Currency Risk: Fluctuations in exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and foreign currencies may negatively affect an investment. Information Risk: Key information about an issuer, security or market may be inaccurate or unavailable.

Political Risk: Foreign governments may expropriate assets, impose capital or currency controls, impose punitive taxes, or nationalize a company or industry. Any of these actions could have a severe effect on security prices and impair the fund’s ability to bring its capital or income back to the U.S. Other political risks include economic policy changes, social and political instability, military action and war.

The fund seeks total return.

The fund pursues its investment objective of total return by investing in a broad range of debt instruments. "Strategic" in the fund's name means that the fund seeks both current income and capital apprecation as elements of total return.

In seeking to achieve its investment objective, the fund adjusts its portfolio's exposure amongst the various types of debt instruments based on market conditions and outlook.

At any given time, the fund may have a substantial weighting in any one asset class. Accordingly, the fund will, at times, be invested in debt instruments of various credit qualities and maturities, while at other times, the fund may emphasize one particular credit quality or maturity.
