Overview
The Harbor High-Yield Bond Fund is subadvised by Shenkman Capital Management, Inc. The Fund invests primarily in below investment-grade bonds of U.S. corporate issuers. The portfolio manager selects securities issued by companies that generally exhibit or are believed to have the potential for positive credit momentum and credit rating upgrade. Seeking to maximize return and minimize risk, the manager practices:
  • Bottom-up fundamental analysis
  • Broad diversification
  • Direct communication with management
  • Monitoring of high-yield issuers on a systematic basis
  • Comprehensive reporting and risk control systems

The portfolio manager reviews the securities at least four times a year and actively seeks to avoid holding any deemed to have a high risk of default. The Fund generally invests at least 80% of its assets in high-yield bonds, and may invest up to 20% in bank loans and 10% in equity securities, including common stock.

Potential Risk & Return - Fixed Income Funds

Performance data shown represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the past performance data shown. Investment returns and the value of an investment will fluctuate, and an investor's shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. You can obtain performance data current to the most recent month-end (available within seven business days after the most recent month-end) by calling 800-422-1050 or visiting www.harborfunds.com.

The Harbor Funds performance shown assumes the reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions and is net of management fees and expenses. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized.

From time to time, certain fees and/or expenses have been voluntarily or contractually waived or reimbursed, which has resulted in higher returns. Without these waivers or reimbursements, the returns would have been lower. Voluntary waivers or reimbursements may be applied or discontinued at any time without notice. Only the Board of Trustees may modify or terminate contractual fee waivers or expense reimbursements.

The BofA Merrill Lynch US High Yield Index is an unmanaged index that tracks the performance of below investment grade U.S. dollar-denominated corporate bonds publicly issued in the U.S. domestic market. All bonds are U.S. dollar denominated and rated Split BBB and below. The unmanaged indices do not reflect fees and expenses and are not available for direct investment.

The Harbor High-Yield Bond Fund received a 3-star Overall Morningstar Rating™ as of 09/30/2014 out of 566 High Yield Bond funds.

The Morningstar Rating is for the Administrative share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variations in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more 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. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

Expense ratios are expressed as an annualized percentage of a fund's average net assets paid out in expenses.
