Thornburg Bond Funds

Thornburg Bond Funds BrochureMost investors view bonds as a relatively conservative investment and seek a steady income while keeping risk in check. Thornburg Investment Management applies a disciplined philosophy to fixed-income management. Since the launch of our first fixed-income fund over two decades ago, we have been conducting fundamental, bottom-up research in an effort to identify bonds which we believe provide the best return for a given level of risk. We are very organic in our approach, avoiding leverage or complex strategies which could backfire in periods of market uncertainty.

Important Information

Investments in the Funds carry risks, including possible loss of principal. Special risks may be associated with investments outside the United States, especially in emerging markets, including currency fluctuations, illiquidity, volatility, and political and economic risks. Investments in small capitalization companies may increase the risk of greater price fluctuations. Funds investing in bonds have the same interest rate, inflation, and credit risks that are associated with the underlying bonds. The principal value of bonds will fluctuate relative to changes in interest rates, decreasing when interest rates rise. This effect is more pronounced for longer-term bonds. Unlike bonds, bond funds have ongoing fees and expenses. Investments in mortgage backed securities (MBS) may bear additional risk. Investments in lower rated and unrated bonds may be more sensitive to default, downgrades, and market volatility; these investments may also be less liquid than higher rated bonds. Investments in derivatives are subject to the risks associated with the securities or other assets underlying the pool of securities, including illiquidity and difficulty in valuation. Investments in the Funds are not FDIC insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity.

Class I shares may not be available to all investors. Minimum investments for the I share class may be higher than those for other classes.

Before investing, carefully consider the Fund’s investment goals, risks, charges, and expenses. For a prospectus or summary prospectus containing this and other information, contact your financial advisor or visit our literature library. Read them carefully before investing.

°°The share price of the fund is not guaranteed by the U.S. Government.

Diversification does not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses.

Lipper’s Large Company universe is currently comprised of fund families with more than $40 billion in total net assets. For the 2008 award, Lipper’s large firm universe was comprised of fund families with more than $28 billion in total net assets. Only fund families with at least five bond funds were eligible. Risk-adjusted returns are calculated with dividends reinvested and without sales charges. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The individual funds may not have ranked number one in their categories.
