2 The credit quality of the investments in the portfolio does not apply to the stability or safety of the Fund. Gradations of creditworthiness are indicated by rating symbols, with each symbol representing a group in which the credit characteristics are broadly the same. The AAA rating is the highest (best) rating and D is the lowest (worst) rating, the Unrated category contains bonds that are not rated by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization. MetWest receives credit quality rating on the underlying securities held by the fund from Moody's, Standard & Poors and Fitch. MetWest created the "Quality Distribution" breakdown by taking the highest rating of the three agencies when two or three of the agencies rate a security. If only one agency rated a security, MetWest will use that rating. Quality Distribution UST/AGY % includes mortgage- and asset-backed securities that are issued by the U.S. Government and government agencies. Credit quality ratings are subject to change and pertain to the underlying holdings of the Fund and not the Fund itself. Holdings ≤ B were purchased at B or better.
