Putnam Global High Yield Bond A Dis






The objective of the Fund is to seek high current income. Capital growth is a secondary objective when consistent with the objective of high current income.  The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing at least two-thirds of its total assets (after deduction of ancillary liquid assets) in high-yielding, lower-rated debt securities worldwide such as those rated lower than S&P’s BBB or Moody’s Baa and listed or traded on Recognised Exchanges (including unleveraged freely transferable loan participations securitised and traded on a Recognised Exchange, zero-coupon bonds and payment-in-kind bonds) constituting a portfolio which the Investment Advisor believes does not involve undue risk to income or principal. Normally, at least 80% of the Fund’s assets will be invested in debt securities
