The Portfolio's investment objective is to maximize total returns from price appreciation and income. The Portfolio's investments in sovereign debt obligations and non-US corporate fixed-income securities emphasize countries that are included in the JP Morgan Emerging Markets Bond Index Global or are considered at the time of purchase to be emerging markets or developing countries.
