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.
Stylebox: The Morningstar Equity style box reveals a fund's investment strategy by displaying the fund's investment style and the market capitalization of the stocks owned.
Index Description: The index shown is a custom blend index comprised of 60% MSCI World High Dividend Yield Index and 40% Barclays Multiverse Index. Barclays Multiverse Index is comprised of securities that represent the global bond market. MSCI World High Dividend Yield Index is designed to reflect the performance of equities (excluding REITs) with higher than average dividend yields that are both sustainable and persistent, first calculated on 5/31/2006.
Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement: Through July 31, 2014, 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 expenses for Class A shares at 1.35%, Class B shares at 2.30%, Class C shares at 2.02%, Class E shares at 1.33%, Class I shares at 0.91% and Class Y shares at 1.17%. Prior to that date, the expense limitation may not be terminated by IICO, IFDI, WISC or the Board of Trustees.
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.
For periods prior to December 8, 2003, the performance shown below is the performance of the Class A shares of Advantus International Balanced Fund which along with its other classes of shares was reorganized on December 8, 2003 into Class A shares of Ivy Global Income Allocation Fund. For that time period, the Fund would have had substantially similar annual returns because the shares would have been invested in a similar portfolio of securities, but would differ to the extent that the Fund has different expenses. Performance prior to December 8, 2003, has not been restated to reflect the estimated annual operating expenses of Ivy Global Income Allocation Fund. If those expenses were reflected, performance shown below would differ.
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.
Morningstar Ratings: For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of all sales charges), placing emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund and rated separately.) A fund's overall rating is derived from a weighted average of the 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) rating metrics. Morningstar Rating is for the share classes specified; other classes may have different performance characteristics.
