Minimum initial investment varies depending on the class of shares you buy and the type of account. IRAs, SIMPLEs, and SEP accounts with payroll deductions have no minimums. Please see Fund prospectuses for additional information.
A Note about Risk: The value of investments in equity securities will fluctuate in response to general economic conditions and to changes in the prospects of particular companies, including market, liquidity, currency, and political risks. Mid cap company stocks tend to be more volatile and may be less liquid than large cap company stocks. Mid cap companies typically experience a higher risk of failure than large cap companies. However, larger companies may be unable to respond quickly to certain market developments and may have slower rates of growth as compared to smaller successful companies. A company's dividend payments may vary over time, and there is no guarantee that a company will pay a dividend at all. These factors can adversely affect Fund performance.
Class A Except as noted below, returns with sales charges reflect a maximum sales charge of 5.75% for equity funds, 2.25% for all tax-free income funds, fixed income funds and multi-asset class funds. There are also ongoing 12b-1 service fees (and, in certain cases, distribution fees).
Class A Shares purchased subject to a front-end sales charge have no contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). However, certain purchases of Class A shares made without a front-end sales charge may be subject to a CDSC of 1% if the shares are redeemed before the first day of the month in which the one year anniversary of the purchase falls. The CDSC is not reflected in the performance with maximum sales charge.
With Sales Charge - Returns with sales charges reflect applicable fees and expenses and include all distributions reinvested.
Without Sales Charge - Returns shown are without sales charges and have all distributions reinvested. If a sales charge had been deducted, the results would have been lower.
Returns shown at less than a year reflect aggregate total returns.
Double-Digit Returns - instances of high double-digit returns were achieved primarily during favorable market conditions and may not be sustainable over time.
Effective September 27, 2012, the Lord Abbett Capital Structure Fund changed its name to Lord Abbett Calibrated Dividend Growth Fund, and the Fund transitioned its investment approach from investing in a mix of equity and fixed income securities to a domestic dividend oriented equity strategy. Therefore, the performance of the Fund for periods prior to September 27, 2012 is not representative of the Fund's current investment strategy. The change in investment approach may affect the Fund's performance.
