To reduce interest rate and/or currency risk, and subject to certain regulatory thresholds, the funds may enter into long or short positions in interest rate derivatives government securities (and derivatives thereon) and/or foreign currency spot and forward contracts. In connection with certain transactions involving convertible bonds and capital structure arbitrage, the funds may enter into credit default swap contracts.
