The portfolio exposures presented above are intended to illustrate the asset class exposure present in the fund. The portfolio exposure percentage represents the notional contract value in U.S. dollars of the Fund’s futures and/or forward positions divided by the Fund’s total net assets. Notional contract values represent the aggregate exposure that a futures or currency forward contract provides to the underlying reference asset or currency, respectively. Given the nature of the Fund’s investments, the sum of the percentages above may not equal 100% and the notional contract values may not equal the net assets of the Fund.
Derivatives, primarily futures and forward contracts, generally have implied leverage (a small amount of money to make an investment of greater value). Because of this, the fund’s extensive use of derivatives may magnify any gains or losses on those investments as well as risk to the fund.
The 30-day SEC yield is a standardized calculation, calculated by dividing the net investment income per share for the 30-day period by the maximum offering price per share at the end of the period and annualizing the result.

Unsubsidized 30-day SEC yield is calculated using the gross expenses of the fund and does not include any fee waivers or reimbursement. The SEC yield is not based upon distributions of the fund and actual income distributions may be higher or lower than the 30-day SEC yield amounts.
