A Note about Risk: The Fund invests in underlying funds that may engage in a variety of investment strategies involving certain risks; the Fund is subject to the particular risks of an underlying fund in proportion to a respective investment. Performance of an underlying fund may be lower than the performance of the asset class it represents. Because the Fund maintains a balanced allocation among equity and fixed-income funds, it will be affected by risks associated with equity and fixed-income markets, as well as the financial condition and prospects of issuers in which the underlying funds invest. Equity securities are generally subject to more volatility and risk than fixed income securities, especially in the case of small and mid-sized company stocks. Fixed-income securities are generally subject to interest rate risk, credit risk, and liquidity risk. These risks are greater for high yield fixed income securities. Investing internationally involves risks not associated with investing solely in the United States, such as currency fluctuation, political risk, differences in accounting and the limited availability of information. The Fund is subject to the risks associated with derivatives, which may be different from and greater than the risks associated with investing directly in securities and other investments. These factors can 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 November 29, 2013, the Lord Abbett Balanced Strategy Fund changed its name to Lord Abbett Multi-Asset Balanced Opportunity Fund.
