Holdings subject to change.

Holdings include all trades that were made prior to month end. The cash listed (money market fund) may include amounts that will be used to settle trades that had not reached their settlement date as of the end of the month.

Portfolio holdings are subject to change daily without notice and may not represent current or past portfolio composition. The holdings presented above include those directly held by the Fund and exclude cash, cash equivalents, collateral held on behalf of the RidgeWorth Funds’ securities lending program, as well as certain other assets and liabilities. Unlike the fund's regulatory filings, the portfolio data and its presentation in this document are not required to conform to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) presentation requirements. Therefore, the information provided may differ from a fund's holdings disclosed in its annual/semi-annual report and Form N-Q due to the exclusions noted above.

For information related to the Fund's collateral investments and other items mentioned above, please refer to the most recent Form N-Q or the annual/semi-annual report in the above 'Related Resources' scrolling section of the page. Forms N-Q are available on the SEC’s website at

Investment performance may reflect voluntary fee waivers which may be discontinued at any time. Without these fee waivers performance would have been lower. For information regarding historical prices, please call 1-888-784-3863.

Bonds offer a relatively stable level of income, although bond prices will fluctuate providing the potential for principal gain or loss. Intermediate-term, higher-quality bonds generally offer less risk than longer-term bonds and a lower rate of return. Generally, a fund’s fixed income securities will decrease in value if interest rates rise and vice versa. The geographical concentration of portfolio holdings in a fund may involve increased risk. A fund’s income may be subject to certain state and local taxes and, depending on your tax status, the federal alternative minimum tax. The net asset value (NAV) per share of a fund will fluctuate as the value of the securities in the portfolio changes. Read our description of share classes and share values [NAV and POP].

*Credit Ratings noted herein are calculated based on S&P, Moody’s and Fitch ratings. Generally, ratings range from AAA, the highest quality rating, to D, the lowest, with BBB and above being called investment grade securities. BB and below are considered below investment grade securities. If the ratings from all three agencies are available, securities will be assigned the median rating based on the numerical equivalents. If the ratings are available from only two of the agencies, the more conservative of the ratings will be assigned to the security. If the rating is available from only one agency, then that rating will be used. Ratings do not apply to a fund or to a fund’s shares. Ratings are subject to change.

#For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation 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. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and is rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating™ for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating™ metrics. Morningstar Rating™ is for the share class selected only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.
