Summary

The investment seeks above-average total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of net assets in fixed-income securities. It is anticipated that the fund's weighted average duration will generally be between two and five years. It will purchase only investment-grade fixed-income securities. The fund may continue to hold up to 10% of its net assets in securities that are downgraded to a rating below investment-grade subsequent to their purchase if Loomis Sayles believes it is appropriate to do so.
