Overview

Historical Returns (%) as of Sep 30, 2021

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance is for the stated time period only; due to market volatility, the Fund’s current performance may be lower or higher than quoted. Returns are historical and are calculated by determining the percentage change in net asset value (NAV) with all distributions reinvested. Returns for other classes of shares offered by the Fund are different. Performance less than or equal to one year is cumulative. Source: Eaton Vance and RIMES.

This overview does not constitute an offer or solicitation to invest in the Fund nor in any other Eaton Vance Funds and is directed at professional investors only. Forecasts may not be attained. Past performance is not a guide to future returns.

This section may contain statements that are not historical facts, referred to as forward-looking statements. The Fund’s future results may differ significantly from those stated in forward-looking statements, depending on factors such as changes in securities or financial markets or general economic conditions, the volume of sales and purchases of Fund shares, the continuation of advisory, administrative and service contracts, and other risks.

About Risk: 

An imbalance in supply and demand in the income market may result in valuation uncertainties and greater volatility, less liquidity, widening credit spreads and a lack of price transparency in the market. There can be no assurance that the liquidation of collateral securing an investment will satisfy the issuer's obligation in the event of non-payment, or that collateral can be readily liquidated. The ability to realise the benefits of any collateral may be delayed or limited. Investments in income securities may be affected by changes in the creditworthiness of the issuer and are subject to the risk of non-payment of principal and interest. The value of income securities also may decline because of real or perceived concerns about the issuer's ability to make principal and interest payments. Investments rated below the investment grade (typically referred to as "junk") are generally subject to greater price volatility and illiquidity than higher-rated investments. As interest rates rise, the value of certain income investments is likely to decline. Bank loans are subject to pre-payment risk. Changes in the value of investments entered for hedging purposes may not match those of the position being hedged. Where it is proposed that the Sub-Fund enter into a total return swap, the Investment Manager intends to minimise counterparty performance risk by only selecting counterparties with a good credit rating and by monitoring any changes in those counterparties' ratings. Additionally, any such transactions will only be concluded on the basis of standardised framework agreements (for example, ISDA with Credit Support Annex). Where the Sub-Fund receives collateral as a result of entering into a total return swap, there is a risk that the collateral held by the Sub-Fund may decline in value or become illiquid and this risk will be borne by the Sub-Fund. There can also be no assurance that the liquidation of any collateral securing a total return swap would satisfy the counterparty's obligation in the event of non-payment of the counterparty's obligations, or that such collateral could be readily liquidated. To the extent that collateral is utilised by the Sub-Fund, the terms of hedging arrangements and other derivative transactions entered into by the Sub-Fund may provide that collateral given to, or received by, the Sub-Fund may be pledged, lent, re-hypothecated or otherwise re-used by the collateral taker for its own purposes. If collateral received by the Sub-Fund is re-invested or otherwise re-used, the Sub-Fund is exposed to the risk of loss on that investment. Should such a loss occur, the value of the collateral will be reduced and the Sub-Fund will have less protection if the counterparty defaults. Similarly, if the counterparty re-invests or otherwise re-uses collateral received from the Sub-Fund and suffers a loss as a result, it may not be in a position to return that collateral to the Sub-Fund should the relevant transaction complete, be unwound or otherwise terminate and the Sub-Fund is exposed to the risk of loss of the amount of collateral provided to the counterparty. No Fund is a complete investment programme and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.
