Fund Description
Fund Objective
To seek to provide total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation.

Investment Approach
The fund is a non-diversified fund that seeks to achieve its objective by investing in debt securities that are predominately denominated in local currencies of emerging market countries, as well as derivative investments that provide investment exposure to such debt securities. The manager utilizes both a top-down and bottom-up approach to security selection. The top-down approach focuses on numerous factors including the global risk environment, interest rate forecasts and currency forecasts. The bottom-up analysis focuses on specific investments and their perceived value based on a number of criteria including credit and currency opportunities, duration and yield curve, and diversification benefits.

Risk Factors: As with any mutual fund, the value of the Fund's shares will change, and you could lose money on your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. These and other risks are more fully described in the fund's prospectus. Not all funds or fund classes may be offered at all broker/ dealers.

Pricing: All prices and year-to-date returns are based on closing quotes unless noted, as supplied to the NASDAQ by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Index Description: The JP Morgan GBI-EM Global Diversified tracks the performance of emerging market debt. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Performance results for some funds may include the effect of expense reduction arrangements. If those arrangements had not been in place, the performance results would have been lower.

Through January 31,2016, Ivy Investment Management Company (IICO), the Fund’s investment manager, Ivy Funds Distributor, Inc. (IFDI), the Fund’s distributor, and/or Waddell & Reed Services Company, doing business as WI Services Company (WISC), the Fund’s transfer agent, have contractually agreed to reimburse sufficient management fees, 12b-1 fees and/or shareholder servicing fees to cap the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses for the Fund’s Class A shares at 1.25%, Class C shares at 2.00%, Class E shares at 1.40%, Class I shares at 1.00%, Class R shares at 1.50% and Class Y shares at 1.25%. Prior to that date, the expense limitation may not be terminated by IICO, IFDI, WISC or the Board of Trustees.

Unsubsidized yields reflect what the yield would have been without the effect of reimbursements and waivers. The adviser and its affiliates have or may voluntarily waive a portion of their fees (including, but not limited to, distribution and service (12b-1) fees) and reimburse certain expenses. There is no guarantee that the fund will avoid a negative yield. Such undertaking may be amended or withdrawn at any time.

30-Day SEC Yield: is calculated based on a formula mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that calculates a fund's hypothetical annualized income, as a percentage of its assets. A security's income, for the purposes of this calculation, is based on the current market yield to maturity (in the case of bonds) or projected dividend yield (for stocks) of the fund's holdings over a trailing 30 day period. This hypothetical income will differ (at times, significantly) from the fund's actual experience; as a result, income distributions from the fund may be higher or lower than implied by the SEC yield.

12-Month Trailing Distribution Yield: at NAV refers to the 12-month historical cash flow paid over the past 12 months in dividends, divided by the past months ending NAV.

When a fund's share class has less than a year of performance to report, the returns shown are cumulative.

Information is subject to change and is not intended to represent any past or future investment recommendations.

Quality: Our preference is to always use ratings obtained from Standard & Poor's. For securities not rated by Standard & Poor's, ratings are obtained from Moody's. We do not evaluate these ratings, but simply assign them to the appropriate credit quality category as determined by the rating agency.

The Fund is subadvised by Pictet Asset Management Limited (Pictet UK). Pictet UK delegates to its affiliate, Pictet Asset Management (Singapore) PTE Ltd (Pictet Singapore, and collectively with Pictet UK, Pictet), portfolio management responsibilities for Fund assets allocated to Asian investments. References to Pictet Asset Management include both entities.

Please remember that an investment in a mutual fund involves risk. Investment return and principal value of a mutual fund investment will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

YTD Prices can be updated 3 to 4 hours after the Daily Pricing information which can result in mismatching data.
