Delivering Opportunity for High Income with Interest Rate Protection

AIG Senior Floating Rate Fund

Class A: SASFX • Class C: NFRCX • Class W: NFRWX

The AIG Senior Floating Rate Fund invests primarily in bank loans to offer the potential for high current income and protection from rising interest rates. As interest rates increase, the loans’ adjustable coupons are structured to reset, providing attractive dividend yield and a hedge against interest rate risk.

With rates expected to continue increasing, bank loans may help diversify your portfolio and provide the opportunity for high income and capital appreciation. As illustrated below, this asset class has historically outperformed more traditional bond investments during rising interest environments.

Senior floating rate funds are not money market funds; their NAVs will fluctuate and may lose value. Investment in these loans involves certain risks, including among others: risks of nonpayment of principal and interest; collateral impairment; non-diversification and borrower industry concentration; and lack of full liquidity. High yield debt instruments carry a greater default risk and may be more volatile, less liquid, more difficult to value and more susceptible to adverse economic conditions or investor perceptions than other debt instruments.
