 Floating rate loans have historically performed well in varying interest-rate environments1

 Since the rates on floating rate loans reset often, they are less sensitive to changes in interest rates. This relative stability
 has allowed floating rate loans to only have one down year over the past 19 years.

  The Fund’s net annual operating expense ratio as of the current prospectus is 1.20%. The gross annual operating expense ratio of 1.21% is reduced
  due to a contractual expense reimbursement, which is in effect until at least 12/31/12 and may be terminated by the Adviser any time after this
  date. The Adviser may recapture operating expenses reimbursed subsequent to 1/1/09, for a period of three years following the beginning of the
  month in which the reimbursement occurred. expenses for other share classes will vary, which will affect returns. Performance figures assume that
  all distributions are reinvested. Performance quoted without sales charges would be reduced if the sales charges were applied.
  For performance data current to the most recent month end, contact your financial professional or call John Hancock Funds at 1-800-225-5291.
  The performance data contained within this material represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The return and
  principal value of an investment will fluctuate, so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. The Fund’s
  current performance may be higher or lower and is subject to substantial changes.

6 The s&P/lsTa Performing loan Index is a subset of the s&P/lsTa leveraged loan Index tracking returns in the leveraged loan market and capturing a broad cross-section of the U.s.
  leveraged loan market, including dollar-denominated, U.s.-syndicated loans to overseas issuers and excluding those in default. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
  Fixed-income investments are subject to interest-rate and credit risk; their value will normally decline as interest rates rise or if the
  creditor is unable or unwilling to make principal or interest payments. Investments in higher-yielding, lower-rated securities involve
  additional risks as these securities include a higher risk of default and loss of principal. If the Fund invests in illiquid securities, it may be
  difficult to sell them at a price approximating their value. Foreign investing, especially in emerging markets, has additional risks, such as
  currency and market volatility and political and social instability. The Fund may invest its assets in a small number of issuers. Performance
  could suffer significantly from adverse events affecting these issuers. The distribution rate and income amounts reflect past amounts
  distributed and may not be indicative of future rates or income amounts. The distribution amounts paid by the Fund generally depend
  on the amount of income and/or dividends received by the Fund’s investments. The Fund may not be able to pay distributions or may
  have to reduce its distribution level if the amount of such income and/or dividends received from its investment decline. Therefore,
  distribution rates and income amounts can change at any time. For additional information on these and other risk considerations, please
  see the Fund’s prospectus.
  A fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses should be considered carefully before investing. The prospectus contains
  this and other important information about the Fund. To obtain a prospectus, call John Hancock Funds at 1-800-225-5291 or visit our
