All data as of March 31, 2013 unless otherwise noted. The composition of the Fund’s holdings is subject to change.
Data shown is historical performance for each share class and reflects reinvested distributions. Investment return and principal value will vary so that you may have a gain or loss when you sell shares. Public Offering Price (POP) performance data for Class A shares includes the maximum 5% sales charge. POP performance data for Class C shares includes the 1% Contingent Deferred Sales Charge (CDSC). Class I shares do not impose a sales charge. Only eligible investors may purchase Class I shares, as described in the prospectus. Past performance does not guarantee future results; current performance may be higher or lower than data quoted. For performance current to the most recent month-end, click here.
The Fund may use derivatives, which are financial contracts whose value depends upon or is derived from the value of an underlying asset, reference rate, or index. The Fund may use derivatives as part of a strategy designed to reduce exposure to certain risks, such as risks associated with changes in interest rates, or currency or credit risk ("hedging"). The use of derivatives may reduce the Fund's return and increase the volatility in movements in the Fund's net asset value. For additional information regarding the use of derivatives, please see the Fund's current prospectus.
The Fund is subject to interest rate risk. Bond values will generally decrease when interest rates rise and will generally increase when interest rates fall.
Bonds with lower credit ratings are more speculative and likely to default than higher quality bonds and tend to fluctuate more widely in value.
Mortgage-backed securities (MBS) are subject to prepayment risk. These risks may result in greater share price volatility.
Convertible securities are subject to the risks associated with both fixed income securities and common stocks.
Fund shares are not insured or guaranteed by the US Government or its agencies
International securities are subject to political influences, currency fluctuations and economic cycles that may be unrelated to those affecting the domestic financial markets and may experience wider price fluctuations than the securities held by other Sentinel funds.
Small- and mid-sized company stocks can be more volatile than large company stocks.
Large company stocks as a group could fall out of favor with the market and underperform investments that focus on small- and mid-sized company stocks.
The following are total annual operating expense ratios for Sentinel Conservative Strategies Fund Class A, C, & I shares; A - 1.09%, C - 1.81%, I - 1.00%. All expense ratio data is sourced from the prospectus dated March 30, 2013.

Morningstar ratings reflect historical risk-adjusted performance as of April 30, 2013 and are subject to change every month. Ratings are based on a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variations in monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees) emphasizing downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Ten percent of the funds in a category receive five stars, 22.5% four stars, 35% three stars, 22.5% two stars and 10% one star. The Overall Rating reflects a weighted average of a fund’s 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) risk adjusted performance. The peer category is Morningstar Conservative Allocation
Morningstar Load-Waived Ratings supplement Morningstar Ratings for Class A shares by recalculating measures that are load-adjusted without the effects of the front-end sales charge. Load Waived ratings should only be considered by investors who are not subject to the Fund’s front-end sales charge.
