Why Putnam for multi-sector fixed income?

  • Our funds are built for flexibility, investing across many sectors and adapting quickly as market conditions change
  • The portfolios are nimble enough to pursue opportunities that may be impractical for bigger bond funds to invest in
  • Backed by dedicated sector specialists, the funds benefit from intensive fundamental research on a global scale
  • All three funds seek to take advantage of the most attractive investment opportunities in the fixed-income markets, both in the benchmark and beyond

Consider these risks before investing: International investing involves certain risks, such as currency fluctuations, economic instability, and political developments. Additional risks may be associated with emerging-market securities, including illiquidity and volatility. Lower-rated bonds may offer higher yields in return for more risk. Funds that invest in government securities are not guaranteed. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk. The funds invest in fewer issuers or concentrate their investments by region or sector, and involve more risk than a fund that invests more broadly. The use of derivatives involves special risks and may result in losses. Funds that invest in bonds are subject to certain risks including interest-rate risk, credit risk, and inflation risk. As interest rates rise, the prices of bonds fall. Long-term bonds are more exposed to interest-rate risk than short-term bonds. Unlike bonds, bond funds have ongoing fees and expenses. The funds’ non-diversified status, which means the funds may invest in fewer issues, can increase the funds’ vulnerability to common economic forces and may result in greater losses and volatility.

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a fund before investing.
