Investments involve risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. The Fund may invest and concentrate investments in municipal securities which are subject to structural risks that could cause the Fund to receive taxable income or to lose money. If events occur after the security is acquired that impact the security’s tax-exempt status, the Fund and its shareholders could be subject to substantial tax liabilities. Some securities held by a Fund may be difficult to sell, or illiquid, particularly during times of market turmoil. Illiquid securities may also be difficult to value. If a Fund is forced to sell an illiquid asset to meet redemption requests or other cash needs, the Fund may be forced to sell at a loss. The credit quality and liquidity of the Fund’s investments in municipal obligations and other debt securities may be dependent in part on the credit quality of third parties, such as banks and other financial institutions, which provide credit and liquidity enhancements to the Fund’s investments. Adverse changes in the credit quality of these third parties could cause losses to the Fund and affect its share price. Changes in the financial condition of the issuer of an obligation, or economic changes that affect the issuer may impact its actual or perceived willingness or ability to make timely payments of interest or principal. The fund may invest in mortgage and asset-backed securities which are subject to prepayment risk, which is the risk that the borrower will prepay some or all of the principal owed to the owner. This could reduce the Fund’s share price and its income distributions. Events in Puerto Rico and U.S. Territories are likely to affect the Fund’s investments and its performance. These events may include economic or political policy changes, tax base erosion, territory constitutional limits on tax increases, budged deficits and other financial difficulties, and changes in the credit ratings assigned to Puerto Rico’s municipal issuers.
