(2) PGIM Investments LLC (PGIM Investments) has contractually agreed, through February 28, 2021, to limit Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses after fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements to 0.88% of average daily net assets for Class A shares, 1.63% of average daily net assets for Class B shares, 1.63% of average daily net assets for Class C shares, 0.63% of average daily net assets for Class Z shares, 1.08% of average daily net assets for Class R2 shares, 0.83% of average daily net assets for Class R4 shares, and 0.58% of average daily net assets for Class R6 shares. This contractual waiver excludes interest, brokerage, taxes (such as income and foreign withholding taxes, stamp duty and deferred tax expenses), acquired fund fees and expenses, extraordinary expenses, and certain other Fund expenses such as dividend and interest expense and broker charges on short sales. Where applicable, PGIM Investments agrees to waive management fees or shared operating expenses on any share class to the same extent that it waives such expenses on any other share class. In addition, Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses for Class R6 shares will not exceed Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses for Class Z shares. Fees and/or expenses waived and/or reimbursed by PGIM Investments may be recouped by PGIM Investments within the same fiscal year during which such waiver and/or reimbursement is made if such recoupment can be realized without exceeding the expense limit in effect at the time of the recoupment for that fiscal year. This waiver may not be terminated prior to February 28, 2021 without the prior approval of the Fund’s Board of Directors.

Portfolio Turnover. The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. During the Fund's most recent fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 37% of the average value of its portfolio.
INVESTMENTS, RISKS AND PERFORMANCE
Principal Investment Strategies. The Fund seeks investments that will increase in value, as well as pay the Fund interest and other income. The Fund generally invests in global developed market sovereign, corporate, mortgage-related, and asset-backed debt securities. The Fund may also invest in the debt securities of emerging market sovereign, quasi-sovereign, and corporate issuers.
The Fund may invest in countries anywhere in the world, and normally invests at least 65% of its total assets in income-producing debt securities of US and foreign corporations and governments, supranational organizations, semi-governmental entities or government agencies, authorities or instrumentalities, investment-grade US or foreign mortgages and mortgage-related securities and US or foreign short-term and long-term bank debt securities or bank deposits. The Fund may invest in debt securities that are denominated in US dollars or foreign currencies. The Fund may invest up to 35% of its total assets in speculative, lower-rated securities, also known as “junk” bonds, and unrated securities that the subadviser determines are of comparable quality to investment grade securities.
In managing the Fund’s assets, the subadviser uses a combination of top-down economic analysis and bottom-up research in conjunction with proprietary quantitative models and risk management systems. In the top-down economic analysis, the subadviser develops views on economic, policy and market trends. In its bottom-up research, the subadviser develops an internal rating and outlook on issuers. The rating and outlook is determined based on a thorough review of the financial health and trends of the issuer. The subadviser may also consider investment factors such as expected total return, yield, spread and potential for price appreciation as well as credit quality, maturity and risk. The Fund may invest in a security based upon the expected total return rather than the yield of such security.
Principal Risks.
All investments have risks to some degree. An investment in the Fund is not guaranteed to achieve its investment objective; is not a deposit with a bank; is not insured, endorsed or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency; and is subject to investment risks, including possible loss of your investment. The order of the below risk factors does not indicate the significance of any particular risk factor.
4 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
Credit Risk. This is the risk that the issuer, the guarantor or the insurer of a fixed income security, or the counterparty to a contract, may be unable or unwilling to make timely principal and interest payments, or to otherwise honor its obligations. Additionally, fixed income securities could lose value due to a loss of confidence in the ability of the issuer, guarantor, insurer or counterparty to pay back debt. The longer the maturity and the lower the credit quality of a bond, the more sensitive it is to credit risk.
Currency Risk. The Fund's net asset value could decline as a result of changes in exchange rates, which could adversely affect the Fund’s investments in currencies, or in securities that trade in, and receive revenues related to, currencies, or in derivatives that provide exposure to currencies. Certain foreign countries may impose restrictions on the ability of issuers of foreign securities to make payment of principal and interest or dividends to investors located outside the country, due to blockage of foreign currency exchanges or otherwise.
Debt Obligations Risk. Debt obligations are subject to credit risk, market risk and interest rate risk. The Fund's holdings, share price, yield and total return may also fluctuate in response to bond market movements. The value of bonds may decline for issuer-related reasons, including management performance, financial leverage and reduced demand for the issuer’s goods and services. Certain types of fixed income obligations also may be subject to “call and redemption risk,” which is the risk that the issuer may call a bond held by the Fund for redemption before it matures and the Fund may lose income.
Derivatives Risk. Derivatives involve special risks and costs and may result in losses to the Fund. The successful use of derivatives requires sophisticated management, and, to the extent that derivatives are used, the Fund will depend on the subadviser’s ability to analyze and manage derivatives transactions. The prices of derivatives may move in unexpected ways, especially in abnormal market conditions. Some derivatives are “leveraged” and therefore may magnify or otherwise increase investment losses to the Fund. The Funds use of derivatives may also increase the amount of taxes payable by shareholders. Other risks arise from the potential inability to terminate or sell derivatives positions. A liquid secondary market may not always exist for the Funds derivatives positions. In fact, many over-the-counter derivative instruments lack liquidity beyond the counterparty to the instrument. Over-the-counter derivative instruments also involve the risk that the other party will not meet its obligations to the Fund.
The US Government and foreign governments have adopted (and may adopt further) regulations governing derivatives markets, including mandatory clearing of certain derivatives, margin and reporting requirements. The ultimate impact of the regulations remains unclear. Additional regulation of derivatives may make derivatives more costly, limit their availability or utility, or otherwise adversely affect their performance or disrupt markets.
Economic and Market Events Risk. Events in the US and global financial markets, including actions taken by the US Federal Reserve or foreign central banks to stimulate or stabilize economic growth, may at times result in unusually high market volatility, which could negatively impact performance. Relatively reduced liquidity in credit and fixed income markets could adversely affect issuers worldwide.
Emerging Markets Risk. The risks of foreign investments are greater for investments in or exposed to emerging markets. Emerging market countries typically have economic and political systems that are less fully developed, and can be expected to be less stable, than those of more developed countries. For example, the economies of such countries can be subject to rapid and unpredictable rates of inflation or deflation. Low trading volumes may result in a lack of liquidity and price volatility. Emerging market countries may have policies that restrict investment by non-US investors, or that prevent non-US investors from withdrawing their money at will. Countries with emerging markets can be found in regions such as Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Africa.
The Fund may invest in some emerging markets that subject it to risks such as those associated with illiquidity, custody of assets, different settlement and clearance procedures and asserting legal title under a developing legal and regulatory regime to a greater degree than in developed markets or even in other emerging markets.

Foreign Securities Risk. The Fund’s investments in securities of foreign issuers or issuers with significant exposure to foreign markets involve additional risk. The securities of such issuers may trade in markets that are less liquid, less regulated and more volatile than US markets. The value of the Fund’s investments may decline because of factors affecting the particular issuer as well as foreign markets and issuers generally, such as unfavorable government actions, and political or financial instability. Lack of information may also affect the value of these securities.
Increase in Expenses Risk. Your actual cost of investing in the Fund may be higher than the expenses shown in the expense table for a variety of reasons. For example, expense ratios may be higher than those shown if average net assets decrease. Net assets are more likely to decrease and Fund expense ratios are more likely to increase when markets are volatile. Active and frequent trading of Fund securities can increase expenses.
Interest Rate Risk. The value of your investment may go down when interest rates rise. A rise in rates tends to have a greater impact on the prices of longer term or duration debt securities. When interest rates fall, the issuers of debt obligations may prepay principal more quickly than expected, and the Fund may be required to reinvest the proceeds at a lower interest rate. This is referred to as “prepayment risk.” When interest rates rise, debt obligations may be repaid more slowly than expected, and the value of the Fund's holdings may fall sharply. This is referred to as “extension risk.” The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk as a result of the US Federal Reserve Board’s rate-setting policies. The Fund may lose money if short-term or long-term interest rates rise sharply or in a manner not anticipated by the subadviser.
Junk Bonds Risk. High-yield, high-risk bonds have predominantly speculative characteristics, including particularly high credit risk. Junk bonds tend to have lower market liquidity than higher-rated securities. The liquidity of particular issuers or industries within a particular investment category may shrink or disappear suddenly and without warning. The non-investment grade bond market can experience sudden and sharp price swings and become illiquid due to a variety of factors, including changes in economic forecasts, stock market activity, large sustained sales by major investors, a high profile default or a change in the market's psychology.
Liquidity Risk. Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund could not meet requests to redeem shares issued by the Fund without significant dilution of remaining investors' interests in the Fund. The Fund may invest in instruments that trade in lower volumes and are more illiquid than other investments. If the Fund is forced to sell these investments to pay redemption proceeds or for other reasons, the Fund may lose money. In addition, when there is no willing buyer and investments cannot be readily sold at the desired time or price, the Fund may have to accept a lower price or may not be able to sell the instrument at all. The reduction in dealer market-making capacity in the fixed income markets that has occurred in recent years also has the potential to reduce liquidity. An inability to sell a portfolio position can adversely affect the Fund's value or prevent the Fund from being able to take advantage of other investment opportunities.
Market Risk. Securities markets may be volatile and the market prices of the Fund’s securities may decline. Securities fluctuate in price based on changes in an issuer’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions. If the market prices of the securities owned by the Fund fall, the value of your investment in the Fund will decline.
Mortgages and Mortgage-Related Securities Risk. When the Fund purchases mortgages or mortgage-related securities, it is subject to certain additional risks. Declines in the value of property backing these securities will negatively affect the quality of these securities and could reduce the ability of the issuer to sell the property to satisfy its outstanding obligations. The value of the property can be negatively affected by a number of factors, including changes in the neighborhood, factors affecting the particular property or the real estate market generally and poor property maintenance. Rising interest rates tend to extend the duration of mortgages and mortgage-related securities, making them more sensitive to changes in interest rates. As a result, in a period of rising interest rates, the Fund may exhibit additional volatility if it holds mortgages or mortgage-related securities. This is known as extension risk. In addition, mortgages and mortgage-related securities are subject to prepayment risk. When interest rates decline, borrowers may pay off their mortgages sooner than expected. This can reduce the returns of the Fund because it will have to reinvest that money at the lower prevailing interest rates. Mortgage-related securities are also subject to the risk that the borrower may fail to make scheduled sinking fund payments or may default and that collateral for the mortgage may be

Table of Contents
inadequate or the terms of the mortgage may be revised. There may also be delays in receiving interest payments and in realizing collateral for these instruments. Finally, there is the potential risk that illiquidity in the market for mortgage-related securities may make it difficult for the Fund to dispose of these instruments or may seriously reduce their sale price.
Non-Diversification Risk. The Fund is non-diversified for purposes of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (1940 Act). This means that the Fund may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single company or other issuer than a diversified fund. Investing in a non-diversified fund involves greater risk than investing in a diversified fund because a loss resulting from the decline in value of any one security may represent a greater portion of the total assets of a non-diversified fund.
US Government and Agency Securities Risk. US Government and agency securities are subject to market risk, interest rate risk and credit risk. Not all US Government securities are insured or guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the US Government; some are only insured or guaranteed by the issuing agency, which must rely on its own resources to repay the debt. Connecticut Avenue Securities issued by Fannie Mae and Structured Agency Credit Risk issued by Freddie Mac carry no guarantee whatsoever and the risk of default associated with these securities would be borne by the Fund. The maximum potential liability of the issuers of some US Government securities held by the Fund may greatly exceed their current resources, including their legal right to support from the US Treasury. It is possible that these issuers will not have the funds to meet their payment obligations in the future. In addition, the value of US Government securities may be affected by changes in the credit rating of the US Government.

MORE ABOUT THE FUND'S PRINCIPAL AND NON-PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES, INVESTMENTS AND RISKS
INVESTMENTS AND INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
The Fund's investment objective is to seek total return, made up of current income and capital appreciation. This means the Fund seeks investments that will increase in value, as well as pay the Fund interest and other income.
In pursuing the Fund's objective, the Fund may invest in countries anywhere in the world, and normally invests at least 65% of its total assets in income-producing debt securities of US and foreign corporations and governments, supranational organizations, semi-governmental entities or government agencies, authorities or instrumentalities, investment-grade US or foreign mortgages and mortgage-related securities and US or foreign short-term and long-term bank debt securities or bank deposits. The Fund can invest in securities of developed countries, and in developing or emerging market countries that the subadviser believes are stable. The Fund can invest in debt securities denominated in US dollars and debt securities in foreign countries denominated in US dollars or foreign currencies.
Securities of developing or emerging market countries may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements than those of developed countries. The Fund generally considers emerging market countries to be countries included in the JP Morgan Emerging Markets Bond Index Global Diversified Index (EMBI Global Diversified), the JP Morgan Government Bond Index-Emerging Markets Global Diversified Index (GBI-EM Global), the JP Morgan Emerging Local Markets Index Plus (ELMI+) or the JP Morgan Corporate Emerging Markets Bond Index Broad Diversified (CEMBI Broad Diversified).  Emerging market countries include, but are not limited to, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey.
In managing the Fund’s assets, the subadviser uses a combination of top-down economic analysis and bottom-up research in conjunction with proprietary quantitative models and risk management systems. In the top-down economic analysis, the subadviser develops views on economic, policy and market trends by continually evaluating economic data that affect the movement of markets and securities prices. This top-down macroeconomic analysis is integrated into the subadviser’s bottom-up research which informs security selection. In its bottom-up research, the subadviser develops an internal rating and outlook on issuers. The rating and outlook is determined based on a thorough review of the financial health and trends of the issuer, which include a review of the composition of revenue, profitability, cash flow margin, and leverage.
The subadviser may also consider investment factors such as expected total return, yield, spread and potential for price appreciation as well as credit quality, maturity and risk. The Fund may invest in a security based upon the expected total return rather than the yield of such security.
The subadviser may also utilize proprietary quantitative tools to support relative value trading and asset allocation for portfolio management as well as various risk models to support risk management.
Some government securities are backed by the full faith and credit of the issuing government, which means that payment of principal and interest are guaranteed but market value is not. Other government issuers may be able to borrow from a centralized treasury, while some government issuers depend entirely on their own resources to repay their debt and are subject to risk of default like private issuers.
The Fund may invest in debt securities that are “investment-grade.” This means major rating services, like S&P Global Ratings (S&P) or Moody's Investors Service, Inc. (Moody's), have rated the securities within one of their four highest quality grades. Debt obligations in the fourth highest grade are regarded as investment-grade, but have speculative characteristics and are riskier than higher rated securities. A rating is an assessment of the likelihood of the timely payment of interest and repayment of principal and can be useful when comparing different debt obligations. Ratings are not a guarantee of quality. The opinions of the rating agencies do not reflect market risk and they may, at times, lag behind the current financial condition of a company. The Fund also may invest up to 35% of its total assets in obligations that are not rated, but that the subadviser believes are of comparable quality to the obligations described

In the event that a security receives different ratings from different nationally recognized statistical ratings organizations (NRSROs), the Fund will treat the security as being rated in the highest rating category received from a NRSRO. If the three primary NRSROs used by the Fund (Moody’s, S&P and/or Fitch, Inc.) do not rate a security, the Fund will treat the security as being rated in the highest rating category received from Japan Credit Agency, Ltd. and DBRS (formerly, Dominion Bond Rating Service), if any.
Up to 35% of the Fund's total assets may be invested in lower-rated securities and unrated securities, including unrated securities that the subadviser determines are of comparable quality to investment grade securities. Lower rate securities are riskier than investment-grade debt obligations and considered “speculative” with respect to their capacity to pay principal and interest. The Fund's investments in high-yield or “junk” bonds will have a minimum rating of C by Moody's or S&P or an equivalent rating by another major rating service at the time they are purchased. The Fund may continue to hold such a security if it is subsequently downgraded below C or an equivalent rating or is no longer rated by a major rating service.
The Fund may invest in bonds of any duration. Duration measures the potential volatility of the price of a portfolio of bonds prior to maturity. Duration is the magnitude of the change in price of a bond relative to a given change in the market interest rate. Duration incorporates a bond's yield, coupon interest payments, final maturity, call and put features and prepayment exposure into one measure. As of October 31, 2019, the Fund’s weighted average duration was 9.1 years.
The Fund's investment objective is a fundamental policy that cannot be changed without shareholder approval. The Fund's policy of investing at least 65% of its total assets in income-producing debt securities of US and foreign corporations and governments, supranational organizations, semi-governmental entities or government agencies, authorities or instrumentalities, investment-grade US or foreign mortgages and mortgage-related securities, and US or foreign short-term and long-term bank debt securities or bank deposits is not a fundamental investment policy. The Board can change investment policies that are not fundamental without shareholder approval.
The Fund is non-diversified. This means that the Fund may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single company or other issuer than a diversified fund. Investing in a non-diversified fund involves greater risk than investing in a diversified fund because a loss resulting from the decline in value of any one security may represent a greater portion of the total assets of a non-diversified fund.
Mortgages and Mortgage-Related Securities
The Fund invests in investment-grade US or foreign mortgages and mortgage-related securities issued or guaranteed by US governmental entities or private issuers. These securities are usually pass-through instruments that pay investors a share of all interest and principal payments from an underlying pool of fixed or adjustable rate mortgages. Mortgage-related securities issued by the US Government include GNMAs and mortgage-related securities issued by agencies of the US Government as well as securities issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The US Government or the issuing agency directly or indirectly guarantees the payment of interest and principal on these securities (see discussion above). Privately issued mortgage-related securities that are not guaranteed by US governmental entities generally have one or more types of credit enhancement to ensure timely receipt of payments and to protect against default. Private issuer mortgage-backed securities may include loans on commercial or residential properties.
Mortgage pass-through securities include collateralized mortgage obligations, multi-class pass-through securities and stripped mortgage-backed securities. A collateralized mortgage obligation (CMO) is a security backed by an underlying portfolio of mortgages or mortgage-backed securities that may be issued or guaranteed by a bank or by US governmental entities. A multi-class pass-through security is an equity interest in a trust composed of underlying mortgage assets. Payments of principal of and interest on the mortgage assets and any reinvestment income thereon provide funds to pay debt service on the CMO or to make scheduled distributions on the multi-class pass-through security. A stripped mortgage-backed security (MBS strip) may be issued by US governmental entities or by private institutions. MBS strips take the pieces of a debt security (principal and interest) and break them apart. The resulting securities may be sold separately and may perform differently.

Table of Contents
The values of mortgage-related securities vary with changes in market interest rates generally and changes in yields among various kinds of mortgage-related securities. Such values are particularly sensitive to changes in prepayments of the underlying mortgages. For example, during periods of falling interest rates, prepayments tend to accelerate as homeowners and others refinance their higher rate mortgages; these prepayments reduce the anticipated duration of the mortgage-related securities. Conversely, during periods of rising interest rates, prepayments can be expected to decelerate, which has the effect of extending the anticipated duration at the same time that the value of the securities declines. MBS strips tend to be even more highly sensitive to changes in prepayment and interest rates than mortgage-related securities and CMOs generally.
Structured Product Securities include secured loans backed by commercial real estate, residential real estate, commercial or consumer loans such as agency and non-agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) (including commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS), residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), and CMOs), asset-backed securities (ABS) (including collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) such as collateralized bond obligations (CBOs) and collateralized loan obligations (CLOs)), and other similar securities and related instruments. The Fund generally may not invest more than 5% of its total assets in unregistered or privately issued structured product securities (excluding structured products offered and sold in the US in reliance on Rule 144A or Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933) that, at the time of purchase, (i) are classified as illiquid, and (ii) for which there is no current market price (Other Unregistered Structured Products). If an identifiable market for the structured product develops after the Fund’s purchase of the security, the structured product will no longer be subject to this 5% limitation.
Adjustable/Floating Rate Securities
The Fund can invest in adjustable or floating rate securities whose interest rate is calculated by reference to a specific index and is reset periodically. The value of adjustable or floating rate securities does not respond as quickly to changing interest rates as do fixed rate securities.
Investments in Affiliated Funds
The Fund may invest its assets in affiliated short-term bond funds and/or money market funds. The affiliated funds are registered investment companies under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the 1940 Act). The Fund can invest its free cash balances in the affiliated funds to obtain income on short-term cash balances while awaiting attractive investment opportunities, to provide liquidity in preparation for anticipated redemptions or for defensive purposes. Such an investment could also allow the Fund to obtain the benefits of a more diversified portfolio available in the affiliated funds than might otherwise be available through direct investments in those asset classes, and will subject the Fund to the risks associated with the particular asset class. As a shareholder in the affiliated funds, the Fund will pay its proportional share of the expenses of the affiliated funds, but the affiliated funds do not pay a management fee to the investment manager, since the investment manager only receives reimbursement for its expenses. Thus, shareholders of the Fund are not paying management fees for both the Fund and the affiliated funds. The investment results of the portions of the Fund’s assets invested in the affiliated funds will be based on the investment results of the affiliated funds.
Asset-Backed Securities
The Fund may invest in asset-backed securities. An asset-backed security is a type of pass-through instrument that pays interest based upon the cash flow of an underlying pool of assets, such as mortgages, automobile loans or credit card receivables. Asset-backed securities may also be collateralized by a portfolio of corporate bonds, including junk bonds, or other corporate and municipal securities.
Derivative Strategies
Derivatives are financial instruments whose value depends upon, or is derived from, the value of something else, such as one or more underlying investments, indexes or currencies. The Fund may use various derivative strategies to try to improve the Fund's returns. The subadviser may also use hedging techniques to try to protect the Fund's assets. A derivative contract will obligate or entitle the Fund to deliver or receive an asset or cash payment based on the change in value of one or more investments, indexes or currencies. Derivatives may be traded on organized exchanges, or in individually negotiated transactions with other parties (these are known as “over-the-counter” derivatives). When the
12 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
Fund uses derivative strategies, the Fund designates certain assets as segregated or otherwise covers its exposure, as required by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although the Fund has the flexibility to make use of derivatives, it may choose not to for a variety of reasons, even under very volatile market conditions.
Because the Fund is a global fund and invests in securities denominated in different foreign currencies, the Fund may use currency derivative positions. Currency derivative positions can help protect the Fund’s net asset value from declining if a particular foreign currency were to decrease in value compared to the US dollar, but can also decline in value should the currency derivative position move against the Fund.
Foreign Currency Forward Contracts. The Fund may enter into foreign currency forward contracts to protect the value of its assets against future changes in the level of foreign exchange rates or to enhance returns. A foreign currency forward contract is an obligation to buy or sell a given currency on a future date and at a set price or to make or receive a cash payment based on the value of a given currency at a future date. Delivery of the underlying currency is expected, the terms are individually negotiated, the counterparty is not a clearing corporation or an exchange, and payment on the contract is made upon delivery, rather than daily.
Futures Contracts and Related Options. The Fund may purchase and sell financial futures contracts and related options on financial futures. A futures contract is an agreement to buy or sell a set quantity of an underlying asset at a future date, or to make or receive a cash payment based on the value of a securities index, or some other asset, at a stipulated future date. The terms of futures contracts are standardized. In the case of a financial futures contract based upon a broad index, there is no delivery of the securities comprising the underlying index, margin is uniform, a clearing corporation or an exchange is the counterparty and the Fund makes daily margin payments based on price movements in the index. An option gives the purchaser the right to buy or sell securities or currencies, or in the case of an option on a futures contract, the right to buy or sell a futures contract in exchange for a premium.
Swap Transactions. The Fund may enter into swap transactions. Swap agreements are two-party contracts entered into primarily by institutional investors for periods typically ranging from a few weeks to more than one year. In a standard “swap” transaction, two parties agree to exchange the returns (or differentials in rates of return) earned or realized on particular predetermined investments or instruments, which may be adjusted for an interest factor. There are various types of swaps, including but not limited to credit default swaps, interest rate swaps, total return swaps and index swaps.
Dollar Rolls
The Fund may enter into dollar rolls in which the Fund sells securities to be delivered in the current month and repurchases substantially similar (same type and coupon) securities to be delivered on a specified future date by the same party. The Fund is paid the difference between the current sales price and the forward price for the future purchase as well as the interest earned on the cash proceeds of the initial sale.
Equity and Equity-Related Securities
From time to time, the Fund may purchase or hold equity or equity-related securities incidental to the purchase or ownership of fixed income instruments or in connection with a reorganization of a borrower. These include common stock, preferred stock or securities that may be converted into or exchanged for common stock—known as convertible securities—like rights and warrants.
Loan Participations and Assignments
The Fund may invest in fixed and floating rate loans (secured or unsecured) arranged through private negotiations between a company as the borrower and one or more financial institutions as lenders. These types of investments can be in the form of loan participations or assignments.
Loan participations and assignments are nonconvertible corporate debt instruments of varying maturities. With participations, the Fund has the right to receive payments of principal, interest and fees from the lender conditioned upon the lender's receipt of payment from the borrower. In participations, the Fund generally does not have direct

Table of Contents
rights against the borrower on the loan, which means that if the borrower does not pay back the loan or otherwise comply with the loan agreement, the Fund will not have the right to make it do so. With assignments, the Fund has direct rights against the borrower on the loan, but its rights may be more limited than the original lender's.
Options. The Fund may purchase and sell put and call options on debt securities, aggregates of debt securities, financial indexes, and currencies traded on US or foreign securities exchanges or in the over-the-counter market. An option gives the purchaser the right to buy or sell securities or such currencies in exchange for a premium. The Fund will sell only covered options.
Options on Securities and Financial Indexes. The Fund may purchase and sell put and call options on securities and financial indexes traded on US or non-US securities exchanges, on NASDAQ or in the over-the-counter market. An option gives the purchaser the right to buy or sell securities in exchange for a premium. The Fund will sell only options that are secured either by the Funds ownership of the underlying security or by cash or other liquid assets segregated or earmarked within the Fund’s account at the custodian or in a separate account at the custodian.
Other Debt Securities
The Fund can invest up to 35% of its total assets in other debt securities such as convertible securities.
Repurchase Agreements
The Fund may enter into repurchase agreements, where a party agrees to sell a security to the Fund and then repurchases it at an agreed-upon price at a stated time. This creates a fixed return for the Fund, and is, in effect, a loan by the Fund. Repurchase agreements are used for cash management purposes only.
Reverse Repurchase Agreements
The Fund may enter into reverse repurchase agreements, where the Fund sells a security with an obligation to repurchase it at an agreed-upon price and time. Reverse repurchase agreements that involve borrowing to take advantage of investment opportunities, a practice known as leverage, could magnify losses. If the Fund borrows money to purchase securities and those securities decline in value, then the value of the Fund's shares will decline faster than if the Fund were not leveraged. In addition, interest costs and investment fees relating to leverage may exceed potential investment gains. Borrowing, including any reverse repurchase agreements that involve borrowing, shall not exceed 33 13% of the value of the Fund’s total assets.
Securities Lending
Consistent with applicable regulatory requirements, the Fund may lend portfolio securities with a value up to 33 13% of its total assets to brokers, dealers and other financial organizations to earn additional income. Loans of portfolio securities will be collateralized by cash. Cash collateral will be invested in an affiliated prime money market fund.
Short Sales
The Fund may make short sales of a security. This means that the Fund may sell a security that it does not own, which it may do, for example, when the subadviser thinks the value of the security will decline. The Fund generally borrows the security to deliver to the buyers in a short sale. The Fund must then replace the borrowed security by purchasing it at the market price at the time of replacement. The Fund may make short sales “against the box.” In a short sale against the box, at the time of sale, the Fund owns or has the right to acquire the identical security at no additional cost through conversion or exchange of other securities it owns.
Stripped Securities
The Fund can invest up to 10% of total assets in “stripped securities” of US and foreign debt securities. Stripped securities are those with the principal and interest sold separately.
Temporary Defensive Investments
In response to adverse market, economic or political conditions, the Fund may take a temporary defensive position and invest up to 100% of its investable assets in money market instruments, including short-term obligations of, or securities guaranteed by, the US Government, its agencies or instrumentalities, or in high-quality obligations of
14 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
domestic or foreign banks and corporations, and may hold up to 100% of its investable assets in cash or cash equivalents. Investing heavily in these securities is inconsistent with and limits the Funds ability to achieve its investment objective, but may help to preserve the Funds assets.
Zero Coupon Bonds
The Fund may invest in zero coupon bonds. Zero coupon bonds do not pay interest during the life of the security. An investor purchases the security at a price that is less than the amount the investor will receive when the borrower repays the amount borrowed (face value).
Other Investments
In addition to the strategies and securities discussed above, the Fund may use other strategies or invest in other types of securities as described in the Statement of Additional Information (SAI). The Fund might not use all of the strategies or invest in all of the types of securities as described in the Prospectus or in the SAI.
The table below summarizes the investment limits applicable to the Fund’s principal investment strategies and certain non-principal investment strategies.

RISKS OF INVESTING IN THE FUND
The order of the below risk factors does not indicate the significance of any particular risk factor.
Adjustable and Floating Rate Securities Risk. The value of adjustable and floating rate securities may lag behind the value of fixed rate securities when interest rates change. Such securities may be subject to extended settlement periods (longer than seven days) and in unusual market conditions, with a high volume of shareholder redemptions, may present a risk of loss to the Fund or may impair the Fund’s ability satisfy shareholder redemption requests.
Asset-Backed Securities Risk. Asset-backed securities are subject to credit risk, market risk and interest rate risk. Asset-backed securities are also subject to prepayment risk, which is the risk that the underlying debt instruments may be partially or wholly prepaid during periods of falling interest rates, which could require the Fund to reinvest in lower yielding debt instruments. Asset-backed securities are also subject to extension risk, which is the risk that rising interest rates may cause the underlying debt instruments to be repaid more slowly by the debtor, causing the value of the securities to fall. Asset-backed securities are subject to illiquidity risk, which is the risk that the securities may be difficult to value precisely and to sell at the time or price desired.
Convertible Securities Risk. Investments in convertible securities subject the Fund to the risks associated with both fixed income securities, including credit risk and interest rate risk, and equity securities.

Table of Contents
Credit Risk. This is the risk that the issuer, the guarantor or the insurer of a fixed income security, or the counterparty to a contract, may be unable or unwilling to make timely principal and interest payments, or to otherwise honor its obligations. Additionally, fixed income securities could lose value due to a loss of confidence in the ability of the issuer, guarantor, insurer or counterparty to pay back debt. The longer the maturity and the lower the credit quality of a bond, the more sensitive it is to credit risk.
Currency Risk. The Fund's net asset value could decline as a result of changes in exchange rates, which could adversely affect the Fund’s investments in currencies, or in securities that trade in, and receive revenues related to, currencies, or in derivatives that provide exposure to currencies. Certain foreign countries may impose restrictions on the ability of issuers of foreign securities to make payment of principal and interest or dividends to investors located outside the country, due to blockage of foreign currency exchanges or otherwise.
Cyber Security Risk. Failures or breaches of the electronic systems of the Fund, the Funds manager, subadviser, distributor, and other service providers, or the issuers of securities in which the Fund invests have the ability to cause disruptions and negatively impact the Funds business operations, potentially resulting in financial losses to the Fund and its shareholders. While the Fund has established business continuity plans and risk management systems seeking to address system breaches or failures, there are inherent limitations in such plans and systems. Furthermore, the Fund cannot control the cyber security plans and systems of the Funds service providers or issuers of securities in which the Fund invests.
Debt Obligations Risk. Debt obligations are subject to credit risk, market risk and interest rate risk. The Fund's holdings, share price, yield and total return may also fluctuate in response to bond market movements. The value of bonds may decline for issuer-related reasons, including management performance, financial leverage and reduced demand for the issuer’s goods and services. Certain types of fixed income obligations also may be subject to “call and redemption risk,” which is the risk that the issuer may call a bond held by the Fund for redemption before it matures and the Fund may lose income.
Derivatives Risk. Derivatives involve special risks and costs and may result in losses to the Fund. The successful use of derivatives requires sophisticated management, and, to the extent that derivatives are used, the Fund will depend on the subadviser’s ability to analyze and manage derivatives transactions. The prices of derivatives may move in unexpected ways, especially in abnormal market conditions. Some derivatives are “leveraged” and therefore may magnify or otherwise increase investment losses to the Fund. The Funds use of derivatives may also increase the amount of taxes payable by shareholders. Other risks arise from the potential inability to terminate or sell derivatives positions. A liquid secondary market may not always exist for the Funds derivatives positions. In fact, many over-the-counter derivative instruments lack liquidity beyond the counterparty to the instrument. Over-the-counter derivative instruments also involve the risk that the other party will not meet its obligations to the Fund.
The US Government and foreign governments have adopted (and may adopt further) regulations governing derivatives markets, including mandatory clearing of certain derivatives, margin and reporting requirements. The ultimate impact of the regulations remains unclear. Additional regulation of derivatives may make derivatives more costly, limit their availability or utility, or otherwise adversely affect their performance or disrupt markets.
Dollar Rolls Risk. Dollar rolls involve the risk that the market value of the securities that the Fund is committed to buy may decline below the price of the securities the Fund has sold. These transactions may involve leverage.
Economic and Market Events Risk. Events in the US and global financial markets, including actions taken by the US Federal Reserve or foreign central banks to stimulate or stabilize economic growth, may at times result in unusually high market volatility, which could negatively impact performance. Relatively reduced liquidity in credit and fixed income markets could adversely affect issuers worldwide.
Emerging Markets Risk. The risks of foreign investments are greater for investments in or exposed to emerging markets. Emerging market countries typically have economic and political systems that are less fully developed, and can be expected to be less stable, than those of more developed countries. For example, the economies of such countries can
16 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
be subject to rapid and unpredictable rates of inflation or deflation. Low trading volumes may result in a lack of liquidity and price volatility. Emerging market countries may have policies that restrict investment by non-US investors, or that prevent non-US investors from withdrawing their money at will. Countries with emerging markets can be found in regions such as Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Africa.
The Fund may invest in some emerging markets that subject it to risks such as those associated with illiquidity, custody of assets, different settlement and clearance procedures and asserting legal title under a developing legal and regulatory regime to a greater degree than in developed markets or even in other emerging markets.
Equity and Equity-Related Securities Risk. The value of a particular security could go down and you could lose money. In addition to an individual security losing value, the value of the equity markets or a sector in which the Fund invests could go down. The Fund's holdings can vary significantly from broad market indexes and the performance of the Fund can deviate from the performance of these indexes. Different parts of a market can react differently to adverse issuer, market, regulatory, political and economic developments.
Foreign Securities Risk. The Fund’s investments in securities of foreign issuers or issuers with significant exposure to foreign markets involve additional risk. The securities of such issuers may trade in markets that are less liquid, less regulated and more volatile than US markets. The value of the Fund’s investments may decline because of factors affecting the particular issuer as well as foreign markets and issuers generally, such as unfavorable government actions, and political or financial instability. Lack of information may also affect the value of these securities.
Increase in Expenses Risk. Your actual cost of investing in the Fund may be higher than the expenses shown in the expense table for a variety of reasons. For example, expense ratios may be higher than those shown if average net assets decrease. Net assets are more likely to decrease and Fund expense ratios are more likely to increase when markets are volatile. Active and frequent trading of Fund securities can increase expenses.
Interest Rate Risk. The value of your investment may go down when interest rates rise. A rise in rates tends to have a greater impact on the prices of longer term or duration debt securities. When interest rates fall, the issuers of debt obligations may prepay principal more quickly than expected, and the Fund may be required to reinvest the proceeds at a lower interest rate. This is referred to as “prepayment risk.” When interest rates rise, debt obligations may be repaid more slowly than expected, and the value of the Fund's holdings may fall sharply. This is referred to as “extension risk.” The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk as a result of the US Federal Reserve Board’s rate-setting policies. The Fund may lose money if short-term or long-term interest rates rise sharply or in a manner not anticipated by the subadviser.
Periods of very low or negative interest rates may lead to lower total returns for the Fund in the future.  Certain countries have recently experienced negative interest rates on certain fixed income instruments. Very low or negative interest rates may magnify interest rate risk. Changing interest rates, including rates that fall below zero, may have unpredictable effects on markets, may result in heightened market volatility and may detract from Fund performance to the extent the Fund is exposed to such interest rates.
Junk Bonds Risk. High-yield, high-risk bonds have predominantly speculative characteristics, including particularly high credit risk. Junk bonds tend to have lower market liquidity than higher-rated securities. The liquidity of particular issuers or industries within a particular investment category may shrink or disappear suddenly and without warning. The non-investment grade bond market can experience sudden and sharp price swings and become illiquid due to a variety of factors, including changes in economic forecasts, stock market activity, large sustained sales by major investors, a high profile default or a change in the market's psychology.
Liquidity Risk. Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund could not meet requests to redeem shares issued by the Fund without significant dilution of remaining investors' interests in the Fund. The Fund may invest in instruments that trade in lower volumes and are more illiquid than other investments. If the Fund is forced to sell these investments to pay redemption proceeds or for other reasons, the Fund may lose money. In addition, when there is no willing buyer and investments cannot be readily sold at the desired time or price, the Fund may have to accept a lower price or may not

Table of Contents
be able to sell the instrument at all. The reduction in dealer market-making capacity in the fixed income markets that has occurred in recent years also has the potential to reduce liquidity. An inability to sell a portfolio position can adversely affect the Fund's value or prevent the Fund from being able to take advantage of other investment opportunities.
Loan Investments Risk. The Fund's ability to receive payments of principal and interest and other amounts in connection with loans (whether through participations, assignments or otherwise) will depend primarily on the financial condition of the borrower. The failure by the Fund to receive scheduled interest or principal payments on a loan because of a default, bankruptcy or any other reason would adversely affect the income of the Fund and would likely reduce the value of its assets. Even with loans secured by collateral, there is the risk that the value of the collateral may decline, may be insufficient to meet the obligations of the borrower, or be difficult to liquidate. In the event of a default, the Fund may have difficulty collecting on any collateral and would not have the ability to collect on any collateral for an uncollateralized loan. Further, the Fund's access to collateral, if any, may be limited by bankruptcy laws. Due to the nature of the private syndication of senior loans, including, for example, lack of publicly-available information, some senior loans are not as easily purchased or sold as publicly-traded securities. In addition, loan participations generally are subject to restrictions on transfer, and only limited opportunities may exist to sell loan participations in secondary markets. As a result, it may be difficult for the Fund to value loans or sell loans at an acceptable price when it wants to sell them. Extended trade settlement periods may, in unusual market conditions with a high volume of shareholder redemptions, present a risk to shareholders regarding the Fund's ability to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time periods stated in the Prospectus. In some instances, loans and loan participations are not rated by independent credit rating agencies; in such instances, a decision by the Fund to invest in a particular loan or loan participation could depend exclusively on the subadviser's credit analysis of the borrower, or in the case of a loan participation, of the intermediary holding the portion of the loan that the Fund has purchased. To the extent the Fund invests in loans of non-US issuers, the risks of investing in non-US issuers are applicable. Loans may not be considered to be “securities” and as a result may not benefit from the protections of the federal securities laws, including anti-fraud protections and those with respect to the use of material non-public information, so that purchasers, such as the Fund, may not have the benefit of these protections.
Market Risk. Securities markets may be volatile and the market prices of the Fund’s securities may decline. Securities fluctuate in price based on changes in an issuer’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions. If the market prices of the securities owned by the Fund fall, the value of your investment in the Fund will decline.
Mortgages and Mortgage-Related Securities Risk. When the Fund purchases mortgages or mortgage-related securities, it is subject to certain additional risks. Declines in the value of property backing these securities will negatively affect the quality of these securities and could reduce the ability of the issuer to sell the property to satisfy its outstanding obligations. The value of the property can be negatively affected by a number of factors, including changes in the neighborhood, factors affecting the particular property or the real estate market generally and poor property maintenance. Rising interest rates tend to extend the duration of mortgages and mortgage-related securities, making them more sensitive to changes in interest rates. As a result, in a period of rising interest rates, the Fund may exhibit additional volatility if it holds mortgages or mortgage-related securities. This is known as extension risk. In addition, mortgages and mortgage-related securities are subject to prepayment risk. When interest rates decline, borrowers may pay off their mortgages sooner than expected. This can reduce the returns of the Fund because it will have to reinvest that money at the lower prevailing interest rates. Mortgage-related securities are also subject to the risk that the borrower may fail to make scheduled sinking fund payments or may default and that collateral for the mortgage may be inadequate or the terms of the mortgage may be revised. There may also be delays in receiving interest payments and in realizing collateral for these instruments. Finally, there is the potential risk that illiquidity in the market for mortgage-related securities may make it difficult for the Fund to dispose of these instruments or may seriously reduce their sale price.
18 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
Non-Diversification Risk. The Fund is non-diversified for purposes of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (1940 Act). This means that the Fund may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single company or other issuer than a diversified fund. Investing in a non-diversified fund involves greater risk than investing in a diversified fund because a loss resulting from the decline in value of any one security may represent a greater portion of the total assets of a non-diversified fund.
Reinvestment Risk. Reinvestment risk is the risk that income from the Fund's portfolio will decline if and when the Fund invests the proceeds from matured, traded or called fixed income instruments at market interest rates that are below the portfolio's current earnings rate. A decline in income could affect the Fund's NAV or its overall return.
Repurchase Agreements Risk. Repurchase agreements could involve certain risks in the event of default or insolvency of the seller, including losses and possible delays or restrictions upon the Fund’s ability to dispose of the underlying securities. To the extent that, in the meantime, the value of the securities that the Fund has purchased has decreased, the Fund could experience a loss.
Reverse Repurchase Agreements Risk. Reverse repurchase agreements involve leverage, which may exaggerate the increase or decrease of the value of the Fund’s assets during the term of the agreement.
Risks of Investing through the Bond Connect Program. The Fund may invest in Chinese bonds traded on the China Interbank Bond Market (“CIBM”) through the China-Hong Kong Bond Connect program (“Bond Connect”). In China, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority Central Money Markets Unit holds securities purchased via Bond Connect on behalf of ultimate investors (such as the Fund) in accounts maintained with a China-based custodian. This recordkeeping system subjects the Fund to various risks, including the risk that the Fund may have a limited ability to enforce rights as a bondholder.
The Bond Connect program is relatively new; laws, rules, regulations, policies, notices, circulars or guidelines relating to the program, as published or applied by the relevant authorities of the PRC and Hong Kong, are untested and are subject to change from time to time. There can be no assurance that the Bond Connect program will not be restricted, suspended or abolished. In addition, the trading, settlement and IT systems required for non-Chinese investors in Bond Connect are relatively new. In the event of systems malfunctions or extreme market conditions, trading via Bond Connect could be disrupted. There can be no assurance as to the program’s continued existence or whether future developments regarding the program may restrict or adversely affect the Fund’s investments or returns.
Bond Connect is only available on days when markets in both the PRC and Hong Kong are open. As a result, prices of securities purchased through Bond Connect may fluctuate at times when a Fund is unable to add to or exit its position and, therefore, may limit the Fund’s ability to trade when it would be otherwise attractive to do so. Uncertainties in the PRC tax rules governing taxation of income and gains from investments via Bond Connect could result in unexpected tax liabilities for the Fund.
Securities Lending Risk. Securities lending involves the risk that the borrower may fail to return the securities in a timely manner or at all. As a result, the Fund may lose money and there may be a delay in recovering the loaned securities. Additionally, losses could result from the reinvestment of collateral received on loaned securities in investments that decline in value, default, or do not perform as well as expected. The affiliated prime money market fund in which cash collateral generally is invested may impose liquidity fees or temporary gates on redemptions if its weekly liquid assets fall below a designated threshold. If this were to occur, the Fund may lose money on its investment of cash collateral in the affiliated prime money market fund, or the Fund may not be able to redeem its investment of cash collateral in the affiliated prime money market fund, which might cause the Fund to liquidate other holdings in order to return the cash collateral to the borrower upon termination of a securities loan. These events could trigger adverse tax consequences for the Fund.
Short Sales Risk. Short sales involve costs and risks. The Fund must pay the lender interest on the security it borrows, and the Fund will lose money to the extent that the price of the security increases between the time of the short sale and the date when the Fund replaces the borrowed security. Although the Fund’s gain is limited to the price at which it

sold the securities short, its potential loss is limited only by the maximum attainable price of the securities, less the price at which the security was sold and may, theoretically, be unlimited. When selling short against the box, the Fund gives up the opportunity for capital appreciation in the security.
Spread Risk. Spread risk is the risk that wider credit spreads and decreasing market values typically represent a deterioration of the fixed income instrument's credit soundness and a perceived greater likelihood or risk of default by the issuer. Fixed income instruments generally compensate for greater credit risk by paying interest at a higher rate. As the spread on a security widens (or increases), the price (or value) of the security generally falls.
Stripped Securities Risk. Stripped securities are more volatile than securities where the principal and interest have not been separated. These securities do not make periodic interest payments, and generally lose value when interest rates rise. The value of stripped securities generally fluctuates more in response to interest rate movements than the value of traditional bonds. Interest-only stripped securities generally have greater risk of loss compared to principal-only stripped securities.
Structured Products Risk. Holders of structured product securities bear risks of the underlying investments, index or reference obligation. Certain structured products may be thinly traded or have a limited trading market, and as a result may be characterized as illiquid, which could make structured securities more difficult for the Fund to value accurately, which may also result in additional costs. Structured products are subject to issuer repayment and counterparty risk. Structured products are also subject to credit risk; the assets backing the structured product may be insufficient to pay interest or principal. In addition to the general risks associated with investments in fixed income, structured products carry additional risks, including, but not limited to: the possibility that distributions from collateral securities will not be adequate to make interest or other payments; the quality of the collateral may decline in value or default; and the possibility that the structured products are subordinate to other classes.
US Government and Agency Securities Risk. US Government and agency securities are subject to market risk, interest rate risk and credit risk. Not all US Government securities are insured or guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the US Government; some are only insured or guaranteed by the issuing agency, which must rely on its own resources to repay the debt. Connecticut Avenue Securities issued by Fannie Mae and Structured Agency Credit Risk issued by Freddie Mac carry no guarantee whatsoever and the risk of default associated with these securities would be borne by the Fund. The maximum potential liability of the issuers of some US Government securities held by the Fund may greatly exceed their current resources, including their legal right to support from the US Treasury. It is possible that these issuers will not have the funds to meet their payment obligations in the future. In addition, the value of US Government securities may be affected by changes in the credit rating of the US Government.
Zero Coupon Bond Risk. Zero-coupon bonds may experience greater volatility in market value due to changes in interest rates. The Fund accrues income on the discount amortization of these investments, which it is required to distribute each year. The Fund may be required to sell investments to obtain cash needed for income distributions.
Please note that, in addition to the risks discussed above, there are many other factors that may impact the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective and which could result in a loss of all or a part of your investment.

Subject to the supervision of the Board, PGIM Investments is responsible for conducting the initial review of prospective subadvisers for the Fund. In evaluating a prospective subadviser, PGIM Investments considers many factors, including the firm's experience, investment philosophy and historical performance. Subject to the Board’s oversight, PGIM Investments is also responsible for monitoring the performance of the Fund's subadviser and recommending its termination and replacement when deemed appropriate. PGIM Investments may provide a subadviser with additional investment guidelines consistent with the Fund's investment objective and restrictions.
PGIM Investments and the Fund operate under an exemptive order (the Order) from the SEC that generally permits PGIM Investments to enter into or amend agreements with unaffiliated subadvisers without obtaining shareholder approval. This authority is subject to certain conditions, including the requirement that the Board must approve any new or amended agreements with a subadviser. Shareholders of the Fund still have the right to terminate these agreements at any time by a vote of the majority of the outstanding shares of the Fund. The Fund will notify shareholders of any new subadvisers engaged or material amendments to subadvisory agreements made pursuant to the Order. Any new subadvisory agreement or amendment to the Fund’s management agreement or current subadvisory agreement that directly or indirectly results in an increase in the aggregate management fee rate payable by the Fund will be submitted to the Fund’s shareholders for their approval. PGIM Investments does not currently intend to retain unaffiliated subadvisers.
A discussion of the basis for the Board's approvals of the management and subadvisory agreements is available in the Fund's Annual Report to shareholders dated October 31..
On September 16, 2019, PGIM Investments, the investment manager for the Fund, and an affiliate, AST Investment Services, Inc. (ASTIS), reached a settlement with the SEC relating to certain former securities lending and foreign tax reclaim practices in connection with other funds that they manage. The practices do not relate to the Fund covered in this Prospectus. PGIM Investments and ASTIS self-reported the practices to the SEC, revised its procedures, and made restitution payments to the affected funds. Under the settlement, PGIM Investments and ASTIS agreed to pay to the SEC disgorgement of fees and a civil penalty. The settlement does not relate to the Fund or affect PGIM Investments’ ability to manage the Fund.

DISTRIBUTOR
Prudential Investment Management Services LLC (“PIMS” or the “Distributor”) distributes each class of the Fund's shares under a Distribution Agreement with the Fund. The Fund has Distribution and Service Plans (the “Plans”) pursuant to Rule 12b-1 under the 1940 Act, applicable to certain of the Fund's shares. Under the Plans and the Distribution Agreement, the Distributor pays the expenses of distributing the shares of all share classes of the Fund. The Distributor also provides certain shareholder support services. Under the Plans, certain classes of the Fund pay distribution and other fees to the Distributor as compensation for its services. These fees—known as 12b-1 fees—are set forth in the “Fund Fees and Expenses” tables.
Because these fees are paid from the Fund's assets on an ongoing basis, over time these fees will increase the cost of your investment and may cost you more than paying other types of sales charges.
DISCLOSURE OF PORTFOLIO HOLDINGS
The Fund's policies and procedures with respect to the disclosure of the Fund's portfolio securities are described in the Fund's SAI and on the Fund's website at www.pgiminvestments.com.

FUND DISTRIBUTIONS AND TAX ISSUES
DISTRIBUTIONS
The Fund distributes dividends to shareholders out of any net investment income. For example, if the Fund owns ACME Corp. stock and the stock pays a dividend, the Fund will pay out a portion of this dividend to its shareholders, assuming the Fund’s income is more than its costs and expenses. The dividends you receive from the Fund will be subject to taxation whether or not they are reinvested in the Fund, unless your shares are held in a qualified or tax-deferred plan or account.
The Fund also distributes any net realized capital gains to shareholders. Capital gains are generated when the Fund sells its assets for a profit. For example, if the Fund bought 100 bonds of ACME Corp. for a total of $1,000 and more than one year later sold the bonds for a total of $1,500, the Fund has net long-term capital gains of $500, which it will pass on to shareholders (assuming the Fund's remaining total gains are greater than any losses it may have).
For your convenience, distributions of dividends and net capital gains are automatically reinvested in the Fund without any sales charge. If you ask us to pay the distributions in cash, we will send you a check if your account is with Prudential Mutual Fund Services LLC (“PMFS” or the “Transfer Agent”). Otherwise, if your account is with a broker, you will receive a credit to your account. Either way, the distributions may be subject to income taxes, unless your shares are held in a qualified or tax-deferred plan or account. If your dividend distribution check remains uncashed for more than six months, your check may be invested in additional shares of the Fund at the net asset value (“NAV”) calculated on the day of the investment. For more information about automatic reinvestment and other shareholder services, see “Additional Shareholder Services” in the next section.
The chart below sets forth the expected frequency of dividend and capital gains distributions to shareholders. Various factors may impact the frequency of dividend distributions to shareholders, including but not limited to adverse market conditions or portfolio holding-specific events.
Expected Distribution Schedule*  
Dividends Monthly
Short-Term Capital Gains Annually
Long-Term Capital Gains Annually
*Under certain circumstances, the Fund may make more than one distribution of short-term and/or long-term capital gains during a fiscal year.
TAX ISSUES
Investors who buy Fund shares should be aware of some important tax issues. For example, the Fund distributes dividends of net investment income and realized net capital gains, if any, to shareholders. Fund distributions and gain from the sale of Fund shares are subject to federal income taxes, unless you hold your shares in a 401(k) plan, an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or some other qualified or tax-deferred plan or account. Dividends and distributions from the Fund also may be subject to state and local income tax in the state where you live.
The following briefly discusses some of the important income tax issues you should be aware of, but is not meant to be tax advice. For tax advice, please speak with your tax adviser.
Fund Distributions
Fund distributions of net capital gains are taxed differently depending on how long the Fund holds the security. If the Fund holds a security for more than one year before selling it, any gain is treated as long-term capital gain which is generally taxed at rates of up to 15% or 20% for non-corporate US shareholders, depending on whether their incomes exceed certain threshold amounts, which are adjusted annually for inflation. If the Fund holds the security for one year or less, any gain is treated as short-term capital gain, which is taxed at rates applicable to ordinary income, subject to a maximum tax rate of 37%. Different rates apply to corporate shareholders.
24 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
Dividends from net investment income paid to a non-corporate US shareholder that are reported as qualified dividend income will generally be taxable to such shareholder at the long-term capital gain tax rate. Dividends of net investment income that are not reported as qualified dividend income will be taxable to shareholders at ordinary income rates. Also, a portion of the dividends paid to corporate shareholders of the Fund will be eligible for the dividends received deduction to the extent the Fund’s income is derived from certain dividends received from US corporations. Between 2018 and 2025, the Fund may report dividends eligible for a 20% “qualified business income” deduction for non-corporate US shareholders to the extent the Fund’s income is derived from ordinary REIT dividends, reduced by allocable Fund expenses.
A US shareholder that is an individual, estate or certain type of trust is subject to a 3.8% Medicare contribution tax on the lesser of (1) the US shareholder’s “net investment income,” including Fund distributions and net gains from the disposition of Fund shares, and (2) the excess of the US shareholder’s modified adjusted gross income for the taxable year over $200,000 (or $250,000 for married couples filing jointly). For this purpose, net investment income includes interest, dividends, annuities, royalties, capital gain and income from a passive activity business or a business of trading in financial instruments or commodities.
Form 1099
For every year the Fund declares a dividend, you will receive a Form 1099, which reports the amount of ordinary income distributions and long-term capital gains we distributed to you during the prior year unless you own shares of the Fund as part of a qualified or tax-deferred plan or account. If you do own shares of the Fund as part of a qualified or tax-deferred plan or account, your taxes are deferred, so you will not receive a Form 1099 annually, but instead you will receive a Form 1099 when you take any distribution from your qualified or tax-deferred plan or account.
Fund distributions are generally taxable to you in the calendar year in which they are received, except when we declare certain dividends and distributions in the fourth quarter, with a record date in such quarter, and actually pay them in January of the following year. In such cases, the dividends and distributions are treated as if they were paid on December 31st of the prior year.
Cost Basis Reporting
Mutual funds must report cost basis information to you and the IRS when you sell or exchange shares acquired on or after January 1, 2012 in your non-retirement accounts. The cost basis regulations do not affect retirement accounts, money market funds, and shares acquired before January 1, 2012. The cost basis regulations also require mutual funds to report whether a gain or loss is short-term (shares held one year or less) or long-term (shares held more than one year) for all shares acquired on or after January 1, 2012 that are subsequently sold or exchanged. The Transfer Agent is not required to report cost basis information on shares acquired before January 1, 2012. However, in most cases the Transfer Agent will provide this information to you as a service.
Withholding Taxes
If federal tax law requires you to provide the Fund with your taxpayer identification number and certifications as to your tax status and you fail to do this, or if you are otherwise subject to backup withholding, we will withhold and pay to the US Treasury a portion of your distributions and sale proceeds, based on the backup withholding rate.
Taxation of Non-US Shareholders
For a discussion regarding the taxation of non-US shareholders, please see the SAI and contact your tax adviser.
If You Purchase on or Before a Record Date
If you buy shares of the Fund on or before the record date for a distribution (the date that determines who receives the distribution), we will pay that distribution to you. As explained above, the distribution may be subject to taxes. You may think you've done well since you bought shares one day and soon thereafter received a distribution. That is not so, because when dividends are paid out, the value of each share of the Fund decreases by the amount of the dividend to reflect the payout, although this may not be apparent because the value of each share of the Fund also will be affected by market changes, if any. However, the timing of your purchase does mean that part of your investment may have come back to you as taxable income.

Qualified and Tax-Deferred Retirement Plans
Retirement plans and accounts allow you to defer paying taxes on investment income and capital gains. Contributions to these plans may also be tax-deductible, although distributions from these plans generally are taxable. In the case of Roth IRA accounts, contributions are not tax-deductible, but distributions from the plan may be tax-free. Please contact your financial adviser for information on a variety of PGIM Funds that are suitable for retirement plans offered by Prudential.
IF YOU SELL OR EXCHANGE YOUR SHARES
If you sell any shares of the Fund for a profit, you have realized a capital gain, which is subject to tax unless the shares are held in a qualified or tax-deferred plan or account. As mentioned above, the maximum capital gains tax rate is up to 15% or 20% for individuals, depending on whether their incomes exceed certain threshold amounts, which are adjusted annually for inflation.
If you sell shares of the Fund at a loss, you may have a capital loss, which you may use to offset capital gains you have, plus, in the case of non-corporate taxpayers, ordinary income of up to $3,000. If you sell shares and realize a loss, you will not be permitted to use the loss to the extent you replace the shares (including pursuant to the reinvestment of a dividend) within a 61-day period (beginning 30 days before and ending 30 days after the sale of the shares). Under certain circumstances, if you acquire shares of the Fund and sell or exchange your shares within 90 days, you may not be allowed to include certain charges incurred in acquiring the shares for purposes of calculating gain or loss realized upon the sale or exchange of the shares.
If you exchange your Fund shares for shares of another class of the Fund, this is generally not a taxable event and should not result in realization of a capital gain or loss by you. If you exchange your shares of the Fund for shares of another PGIM Fund, this is considered a sale for tax purposes. In other words, it's a taxable event. Therefore, if the shares you exchanged have increased in value since you purchased them, you have capital gains, which are subject to the taxes described above. Unless you hold your shares in a qualified or tax-deferred plan or account, you or your financial adviser should keep track of the dates on which you buy and sell—or exchange—Fund shares, as well as the amount of any gain or loss on each transaction. For tax advice, please see your tax adviser.
Automatic Conversion of Class B Shares
The conversion of Class B shares into Class A shares—which happens automatically approximately seven years after purchase—is not a taxable event for federal income tax purposes. Effective on or about the close of business on June 26, 2020, all of the issued and outstanding Class B shares of the Fund will be converted into Class A shares of the Fund. For more information about the automatic conversion of Class B shares, see Class B Shares Automatically Convert to Class A Shares in How to Buy, Sell and Exchange Fund Shares.
Automatic Conversion of Class C Shares
The conversion of Class C shares into Class A shares—which happens automatically approximately 10 years after purchase—is not a taxable event for federal income tax purposes. For more information about the automatic conversion of Class C shares, see Class C Shares Automatically Convert to Class A Shares in How to Buy, Sell and Exchange Fund Shares.

HOW TO BUY, SELL AND EXCHANGE FUND SHARES
HOW TO BUY SHARES
In order to buy Fund shares, simply follow the steps described below.
Opening an Account
Shares may be purchased through an account with the Transfer Agent, or through an account with a financial intermediary that has an agreement with the Distributor to sell Fund shares. In order to open an account with the Transfer Agent contact PMFS at (800) 225-1852 or write to:
Prudential Mutual Fund Services LLC
P.O. Box 9658
Providence, RI 02940
PMFS will accept purchases of shares by check or wire. We do not accept cash, money orders, non-US checks, credit card checks, payable through checks or travelers checks. To purchase by wire, call the number above to obtain an application. After PMFS receives your completed application, you will receive an account number. For additional information, see the back cover page of this Prospectus. Your purchase order must be in good order to be accepted and processed, which means that all necessary processing requirements have been satisfied. We have the right to reject any purchase order (including an exchange into the Fund) or suspend or modify the Fund's sales of its shares under certain circumstances. These circumstances include, but are not limited to, failure by you to provide additional information requested, such as information required to verify the source of funds used to purchase shares, your identity or the identity of any underlying beneficial owners of your shares. Furthermore, we are required by law to close your account if you do not provide the required identifying information. This would result in the redemption of shares at the then-current NAV and the proceeds would be remitted to you via check. We will attempt to verify your identity within a reasonable time frame (e.g., 60 days), which may change from time to time. For further information, please contact PMFS (for shares purchased through the Transfer Agent) or your financial professional (for shares purchased through a financial intermediary).
With certain limited exceptions, Fund shares are only available to be sold in the United States, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Guam.
Choosing a Share Class
The Fund offers the following share classes. Certain classes of shares may have additional specific eligibility or qualification requirements, which are explained below.
Share Class Eligibility
Class A** Retail investors
Class B Retail investors*
Class C** Retail investors
Class Z** Certain group retirement plans, institutional investors and certain other investors
Class R2 Certain group retirement plans and certain other investors
Class R4 Certain group retirement plans and certain other investors
Class R6 Certain group retirement plans, institutional investors and certain other investors
* Note:  Class B shares are closed to all purchase activity except for exchanges from Class B shares of another fund.  See “Closure of Class B Shares” below for more information.
** The Fund’s Class A, Class C and Class Z shares were generally closed to investments by new group retirement plans effective June 1, 2018. Please see “Closure of Certain Share Classes to New Group Retirement Plans” in this section of the Prospectus for more information.
Multiple share classes let you choose a cost structure that meets your needs:
Class A shares purchased in amounts of less than $500,000 require you to pay a sales charge at the time of purchase, but the operating expenses of Class A shares are lower than the operating expenses of Class C shares. Prior to July 15, 2019, investors who purchased $1 million or more of Class A shares and sell these shares within
Visit our website at www.pgiminvestments.com 27

Table of Contents
  12 months of purchase are also subject to a contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) of 1.00%. Effective July 15, 2019, investors who purchase $500,000 or more of Class A shares and sell these shares within 12 months of purchase are also subject to a contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) of 1.00%. The CDSC is waived for certain retirement and/or benefit plans.
Class C shares do not require you to pay a sales charge at the time of purchase, but do require you to pay a CDSC if you sell your shares within 12 months of purchase. The operating expenses of Class C shares are higher than the operating expenses of Class A shares.
When choosing a share class, you should consider the following factors:
The amount of your investment and any previous or planned future investments, which may qualify you for reduced sales charges for Class A shares under Rights of Accumulation or a Letter of Intent.
The length of time you expect to hold the shares and the impact of varying distribution fees. Over time, these fees will increase the cost of your investment and may cost you more than paying other types of sales charges. For this reason, Class C shares are generally appropriate only for investors who plan to hold their shares for no more than 3 years.
The different sales charges that apply to each share class—Class A's front-end sales charge (and, in certain instances, CDSC) vs. Class C's CDSC.
Class C shares purchased in single amounts greater than $500,000 are generally less advantageous than purchasing Class A shares. Purchase orders for Class C shares above this amount generally will not be accepted.
If you purchase Class Z shares through a broker acting solely as an agent on behalf of its customers pursuant to an agreement with PIMS, the broker may charge you a commission in an amount determined and separately disclosed to you by the broker.
Because Class Z and Class R6 shares have lower operating expenses than Class A or Class C shares, as applicable, you should consider whether you are eligible to purchase such share classes.
See “How to Sell Your Shares” for a description of the impact of CDSCs.
If your shares are held through a financial intermediary, you should discuss with your intermediary which share classes of the Fund are available to you and which share class may best meet your needs. Certain financial intermediaries through which you may purchase shares of the Fund may impose their own investment minimums, fees, policies and procedures for purchasing, exchanging and selling Fund shares, which are not described in this Prospectus or the SAI, and which will depend on the policies, procedures and trading platforms of the financial intermediary. Consult your financial intermediary about share class availability and the intermediary’s policies, procedures and other information. The availability of certain sales charge waivers and discounts will depend on whether you purchase your shares directly from the Fund or through a financial intermediary. See “Appendix A: Waivers and Discounts Available From Certain Financial Intermediaries” for additional information. The Fund has advised financial intermediaries of the share class features and guidelines, per the Prospectus, and it is their responsibility to monitor and enforce these guidelines with respect to shareholders purchasing shares through financial intermediaries.
Share Class Comparison. Use the following chart to help you compare the different share classes. The discussion following this chart will tell you whether you are entitled to a reduction or waiver of any sales charges.

Notes to Share Class Comparison Table:
° The minimum initial and subsequent investment requirements do not apply to employee savings plan accounts, payroll deduction plan accounts, or when exchanging all shares of an account to an existing account with the same registration. The minimum initial and subsequent investment for AIP accounts is $50 (if your shares are held through a broker or other financial intermediary, the broker or intermediary is responsible for determining the minimum initial and subsequent investment for AIP accounts). In addition, the minimum initial and subsequent investment requirements do not apply with respect to Class A and C shares when offered at NAV on fee-based programs, mutual fund “wrap” or asset allocation programs, mutual fund “supermarket” programs, and group retirement plans.
° If the value of your Class A, Class B, Class C, or Class Z account with PMFS is less than $10,000, the Fund will deduct a $15 annual account maintenance fee from your account. The $15 annual account maintenance fee will be assessed during the 4th calendar quarter of each year. Any applicable CDSC on the shares redeemed to pay the $15 account maintenance fee will be waived. The $15 account maintenance fee will not be charged on: (i) accounts during the first six months from inception of the account, (ii) accounts which are authorized for electronic delivery of account statements, transaction confirmations, prospectuses and fund shareholder reports, (iii) omnibus accounts or accounts for which a broker or other financial intermediary is responsible for recordkeeping, (iv) institutional accounts, (v) group retirement plans, (vi) AIP accounts or employee savings plan accounts, (vii) accounts with the same registration associated with multiple share classes within the Fund, provided that the aggregate value of share classes with the same registration within the Fund is $10,000 or more, or (viii) clients with assets of $50,000 or more across the PGIM family of mutual funds. For more information, see “Purchase, Redemption and Pricing of Fund Shares—Account Maintenance Fee” in the SAI.
° For more information about the CDSC and how it is calculated, see “How to Sell Your Shares—Contingent Deferred Sales Charge (CDSC).”
° Prior to July 15, 2019, investors who purchased $1 million or more of Class A shares and redeem those shares within 12 months of purchase are subject to a CDSC of 1.00%, but are not subject to an initial sales charge. Effective July 15, 2019, investors who purchase $500,000 or more of Class A shares and redeem those shares within 12 months of purchase are subject to a CDSC of 1.00%, but are not subject to an initial sales charge. The CDSC is waived for purchases by certain retirement and/or benefit plans.
° These distribution and service (12b-1) fees are paid from the Fund's assets on a continuous basis. The service fee for Class A, Class B and Class C shares is 0.25%. The distribution fee for Class A shares is limited to 0.25% (including up to 0.25% as a service fee), and 0.25% for Class R2 shares. Class B shares and Class C shares pay a distribution fee (in addition to the service fee) of 0.75%.
* Note: Class B shares are closed to all purchase activity except for exchanges from Class B shares of another fund. See “Closure of Class B Shares” below for more information.
** The Fund’s Class A, Class C and Class Z shares were generally closed to investments by new group retirement plans effective June 1, 2018. Please see “Closure of Certain Share Classes to New Group Retirement Plans” in this section of the Prospectus for more information.
Closure of Class B Shares
Class B shares are closed to all purchase activity effective June 23, 2014. This means that no new accounts in Class B shares may be established, and no additional Class B shares may be purchased or acquired, except through an exchange from the Class B shares of another fund or through the reinvestment of dividends and/or capital gains.
Shareholders owning Class B shares may continue to hold their Class B shares until the shares automatically convert to Class A shares under the conversion schedule, or until the shareholder redeems their Class B shares. Any redemption of Class B shares will continue to be subject to any applicable CDSC. In addition, as noted above, shareholders owning Class B shares will continue to have exchange privileges with the Class B shares of any other fund that offers Class B shares.

Automatic Investment Plan (AIP). Shareholders who purchase Class B shares through the Automatic Investment Plan (AIP) are no longer able to purchase Class B shares and are required to select a different share class of the Fund or another fund in order to continue to make automatic investments. Selection of a different share class will be subject to the eligibility requirements of such share class. If a shareholder does not designate a different share class for AIP investments, future purchases of Class B shares will be rejected. New AIPs in Class B shares may not be established.
IRAs & Employer-Sponsored Retirement Plans. Class B shareholders may continue to hold Class B shares in IRA and SIMPLE IRA accounts or in employer-sponsored retirement plans, but contributions must be made in a different share class.

Closure of Certain Share Classes to New Group Retirement Plans
Effective June 1, 2018 (the “Effective Date”), the Fund’s Class A, Class C, Class R and Class Z shares, as applicable, were closed to investments by new group retirement plans, except as discussed below. Existing group retirement plans as of the Effective Date may keep their investments in their current share class and may continue to make additional purchases or exchanges in the Fund. As of the Effective Date, all new group retirement plans wishing to add the Fund as a new addition to the plan generally will be into one of the available Class R6 shares, Class R4 shares, or Class R2 shares of the Fund, as applicable. A short-term investment in a PGIM affiliated money market fund shall not be deemed a new group retirement plan investment for purposes of this policy.
In addition, on the Effective Date, the Class R shares of any fund were closed to all new investors, except as discussed below. Due to the closing of the Class R shares to new investors, effective on the Effective Date new IRA investors may only purchase Class A, Class C, Class Z or Class R6 shares of the Fund, as applicable, subject to share class eligibility.

To satisfy the purchase amounts above, you can:
Use your Rights of Accumulation, which allow you or an eligible group of related investors to combine (1) the current value of Class A, Class B and Class C PGIM Fund shares you or the group already own, (2) the value of money market shares (other than Direct Purchase money market shares) you or an eligible group of related investors have received for shares of other PGIM Funds in an exchange transaction, and (3) the value of the shares you or an eligible group of related investors are purchasing; or
Sign a Letter of Intent, stating in writing that you or an eligible group of related investors will purchase a certain amount of shares in the Fund and other PGIM Funds within 13 months.
Visit our website at www.pgiminvestments.com 31

Table of Contents
Purchases made prior to the effective date of the Letter of Intent will be applied toward the satisfaction of the Letter of Intent to determine the level of sales charge that will be paid pursuant to the Letter of Intent, but will not result in any reduction in the amount of any previously paid sales charge.
An “eligible group of related investors” includes any combination of the following:
All accounts held in your name (alone or with other account holders) and taxpayer identification number (“TIN”);
Accounts held in your spouse's name (alone or with other account holders) and TIN (see definition of spouse below);
Accounts for your children or your spouse's children, including children for whom you and/or your spouse are legal guardian(s) (e.g., UGMAs and UTMAs);
Accounts in the name and TINs of your parents;
Trusts with you, your spouse, your children, your spouse's children and/or your parents as the beneficiaries;
With limited exclusions, accounts with the same address (exclusions include, but are not limited to, addresses for brokerage firms and other intermediaries and Post Office boxes); and
Accounts held in the name of a company controlled by you (a person, entity or group that holds 25% or more of the outstanding voting securities of a company will be deemed to control the company, and a partnership will be deemed to be controlled by each of its general partners), including employee benefit plans of the company where the accounts are held in the plan's TIN.
A “spouse” is defined in this Prospectus as follows:
The person to whom you are legally married. We also consider your spouse to include the following:
An individual of the same gender with whom you have been joined in a civil union, or legal contract similar to marriage;
A domestic partner, who is an individual (including one of the same gender) with whom you have shared a primary residence for at least six months, in a relationship as a couple where you, your domestic partner or both provide for the personal or financial welfare of the other without a fee, to whom you are not related by blood; or
An individual with whom you have a common law marriage, which is a marriage in a state where such marriages are recognized between a man and a woman arising from the fact that the two live together and hold themselves out as being married.
The value of shares held by you or an eligible group of related investors will be determined by the value of your existing Class A shares calculated at current NAV plus maximum sales charge with Class B and Class C shares calculated at current NAV.
Note: Class Z shares and Class R6 shares cannot be aggregated with any other share class for purposes of reducing or waiving Class A's initial sales charge.
If your shares are held directly by the Transfer Agent, and you believe you qualify for a reduction or waiver of Class A’s or Class C's sales charges, you must notify the Transfer Agent at the time of the qualifying share purchase in order to receive the applicable reduction or waiver. If your shares are held through a broker or other financial intermediary, and you believe you qualify for a reduction or waiver of Class A’s or Class C's sales charges, you must notify your broker or intermediary at the time of the qualifying purchase in order to receive the applicable reduction or waiver. Shares held through a broker or other financial intermediary will not be systematically aggregated with shares held directly by the Transfer Agent for purposes of receiving a reduction or waiver of Class A’s or Class C's sales charges. The reduced or waived sales charge will be granted subject to confirmation of account holdings.
If your shares are held directly by the Transfer Agent, you must identify the eligible group of related investors. Although the Transfer Agent does not require any specific form of documentation in order to establish your eligibility to receive a waiver or reduction of Class A’s or Class C's sales charges, you may be required to provide appropriate documentation if the Transfer Agent is unable to establish your eligibility.
32 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
If your shares are held through a financial intermediary, the financial intermediary is responsible for determining the specific documentation, if any, that you may need in order to establish your eligibility to receive a waiver or reduction of Class A’s or Class C's sales charges. Your financial intermediary is also responsible for notifying the Transfer Agent if your share purchase qualifies for a reduction or waiver of Class A’s or Class C's sales charges.
Purchases of $500,000 or More. If you purchase $500,000 or more of Class A shares, you will not be subject to an initial sales charge, although a CDSC may apply, as previously noted.
Mutual Fund Programs. The initial sales charge on Class A shares will be waived for participants in any fee-based program or trust program sponsored by Prudential or an affiliate that includes the Fund as an available option. The initial sales charge will also be waived for clients of financial intermediaries in programs that are sponsored by or available through financial intermediaries that offer Class A shares without an initial sales charge, relating to:
Mutual fund “wrap” or asset allocation programs, where the sponsor places fund trades, links its clients' accounts to a master account in the sponsor's name and charges its clients a management, consulting or other fee for its services; or
Mutual fund “supermarket” programs, where the sponsor links its clients' accounts to a master account in the sponsor's name and the sponsor charges a fee for its services.
Financial intermediaries sponsoring these mutual fund programs may offer their clients more than one class of shares in the Fund in connection with different pricing options for their programs. Investors should consider carefully any separate transaction and other fees charged by these programs in connection with investing in each available share class before selecting a share class.
Group Retirement Plans. Class A’s and Class C’s sales charges will be waived for group retirement plans (including defined contribution plans, defined benefit plans and deferred compensation plans) available through a retirement plan recordkeeper or third party administrator. If Prudential Retirement Services is the recordkeeper for your group retirement plan, you may call Prudential at (800) 353-2847 with any questions. Otherwise, investors in group retirement plans should contact their financial intermediary with any questions regarding availability of Class A and Class C shares at net asset value.
Other Types of Investors. Certain other types of investors may purchase Class A shares without paying the initial sales charge, including:
Certain directors, officers, current employees (including their spouses, children and parents) and former employees (including their spouses, children and parents) of Prudential and its affiliates, the PGIM Funds, and the subadvisers of the PGIM Funds; former employees must have an existing investment in the Fund;
Persons who have retired directly from active service with Prudential or one of its subsidiaries;
Registered representatives and employees of broker-dealers (including their spouses, children and parents) that offer Class A shares;
Investors in IRAs, provided that: (a) the purchase is made either from a directed rollover to such IRA or with the proceeds of a tax-free rollover of assets from a Benefit Plan for which Prudential Retirement (the institutional Benefit Plan recordkeeping entity of Prudential) provides administrative or recordkeeping services, in each case provided that such purchase is made within 60 days of receipt of the Benefit Plan distribution, and (b) the IRA is established through Prudential Retirement as part of its “Rollover IRA” program (regardless of whether or not the purchase consists of proceeds of a tax-free rollover of assets from a Benefit Plan described above); and
Clients of financial intermediaries, who (i) offer Class A shares through a no-load network or platform, (ii) charge clients an ongoing fee for advisory, investment, consulting or similar services, or (iii) offer self-directed brokerage accounts or other similar types of accounts that may or may not charge transaction fees to customers.
To qualify for a waiver of the Class A or Class C sales charges at the time of purchase (including exchange of share classes within the Fund), you must notify the Transfer Agent, or the Distributor must be notified by the financial intermediary facilitating the purchase, that the transaction qualifies for a waiver of the Class A or Class C sales charges. The waiver will be granted subject to confirmation of your account holdings.

Additional Information About Reducing or Waiving Class A’s and Class C's Sales Charges. The Fund also makes available free of charge, on the Fund's website, in a clear and prominent format, information relating to the Fund's Class A and Class C sales charges, and the different ways that investors can reduce or avoid paying the initial sales charge. The Fund's website includes hyperlinks that facilitate access to this information.
You may need to provide your financial intermediary through which you hold Fund shares with the information necessary to take full advantage of reduced or waived Class A or Class C sales charges.
The Distributor may reallow the Class A sales charge to dealers.
Class B Shares Automatically Convert to Class A Shares
Effective on or about the close of business on June 26, 2020, all of the issued and outstanding Class B shares of the Fund will be converted into Class A shares of the Fund. Effective on or about April 1, 2019, if you bought Class B shares and hold them for approximately seven years, we will automatically convert them into Class A shares without charge. At that time, we will also convert any Class B shares that you purchased with reinvested dividends and other distributions. Since the distribution and service (12b-1) fees for Class A shares are lower than for Class B shares, converting to Class A shares lowers your Fund expenses. Class B shares acquired through the reinvestment of dividends or distributions will be converted to Class A shares according to the procedures utilized by the broker-dealer through which the Class B shares were purchased, if the shares are carried on the books of that broker-dealer and the broker-dealer provides subaccounting services to the Fund. Otherwise, the procedures utilized by PMFS or its affiliates will be used. The use of different procedures may result in a timing differential in the conversion of Class B shares acquired through the reinvestment of dividends and distributions.
When we do the conversion, you will get fewer Class A shares than the number of converted Class B shares if the price of the Class A shares is higher than the price of the Class B shares. The total dollar value will be the same, so you will not have lost any money by getting fewer Class A shares. Conversions are monthly for Class B shares (prior to April 1, 2019 the conversions were quarterly).
If you hold Class B share certificates, the certificates must be received by the Transfer Agent in order for your Class B shares to convert from Class B to Class A shares. Certificate deposited shares will convert during the next monthly conversion.
A financial intermediary may sponsor and/or control accounts, programs or platforms that impose a different conversion schedule or different eligibility requirements for the exchange of Class B shares for Class A shares (see Appendix A: Waivers and Discounts Available From Certain Financial Intermediaries of the Prospectus). Please consult with your financial intermediary if you have any questions regarding your shares’ conversion from Class B shares to Class A shares.
Class C Shares Automatically Convert to Class A Shares
Effective on or about April 1, 2019, Class C shares became eligible for automatic conversion into Class A shares on a monthly basis if held for ten years from the original date of purchase (the “Conversion Date”). Conversion will take place based on the relative NAV of the two classes, without the imposition of any sales load, fee or other charge. All such automatic conversions of Class C shares will constitute tax-free exchanges for federal income tax purposes. See page 3 of the Prospectus for the annual fund operating expenses for Class A shares and Class C shares.
For shareholders investing in Class C shares through retirement plans or omnibus accounts, and in certain other instances, the Fund and its agents may not have transparency into how long a shareholder has held Class C shares for purposes of determining whether such Class C shares are eligible for automatic conversion into Class A shares, and the relevant financial intermediary may not have the ability to track purchases in order to credit individual shareholders’ holding periods. In these circumstances, the Fund will not be able to automatically convert Class C shares into Class A shares as described above. In order to determine eligibility for conversion in these circumstances, it is the responsibility of the financial intermediary to notify the Fund that the shareholder is eligible for the conversion of Class C shares to Class A shares, and the financial intermediary may be required to maintain and provide the Fund with records that
34 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
substantiate the holding period of Class C shares. It is the financial intermediary’s (and not the Fund’s) responsibility to keep records of transactions made in accounts it holds and to ensure that the shareholder is credited with the proper holding period based on such records or those provided to the financial intermediary by the shareholder. Please consult with your financial intermediary for the applicability of this conversion feature to your shares.
A financial intermediary may sponsor and/or control accounts, programs or platforms that impose a different conversion schedule or different eligibility requirements for the exchange of Class C shares for Class A shares (see Appendix A: Waivers and Discounts Available From Certain Financial Intermediaries of the Prospectus). Please consult with your financial intermediary if you have any questions regarding your shares’ conversion from Class C shares to Class A shares.
Qualifying for Class Z Shares
Institutional Investors. Various institutional investors may purchase Class Z shares, including corporations, banks, governmental entities, municipalities, hospitals, insurance companies and IRS Section 501 entities, such as foundations and endowments. Institutional investors are responsible for indicating their eligibility to purchase Class Z shares at the time of purchase. Certain financial intermediaries may require that investments by their institutional investor clients in Class Z shares be placed directly with the Fund's Transfer Agent. Please contact the Transfer Agent at (800) 225-1852 for further details.
Mutual Fund Programs. Class Z shares can be purchased by participants in any fee-based program or trust program sponsored by Prudential or an affiliate that includes the Fund as an available option. Class Z shares also can be purchased by investors in certain programs sponsored by financial intermediaries who offer Class Z shares of the Fund, or whose programs are available through financial intermediaries that offer Class Z shares of the Fund, for:
Mutual fund “wrap” or asset allocation programs where the sponsor places fund trades, links its clients' accounts to a master account in the sponsor's name and charges its clients a management, consulting or other fee for its services;
Mutual fund “supermarket” programs where the sponsor links its clients' accounts to a master account in the sponsor's name and the sponsor charges a fee for its services; or
Fee- or commission-based retail brokerage programs of certain financial intermediaries that offer Class Z shares through such programs and that have agreements with PIMS to offer such shares when acting solely on an agency basis for their customers for the purchase or sale of such shares. If you transact in Class Z shares of the Fund through one of these programs, you may be required to pay a commission and/or other forms of compensation to the broker or financial intermediary for effecting such transaction. Because the Fund is not a party to any commission arrangement between you and your broker, any transactions in Class Z shares will be made by the Fund at net asset value (before imposition of the commission). Any such fee is paid by you, not by the Fund, and the imposition of any such fee or commission by your broker or financial intermediary does not impact the net asset value for such Fund shares. Shares of the Fund are available in other share classes that have different fees and expenses.
Financial intermediaries sponsoring these mutual fund programs may offer their clients more than one class of shares in the Fund in connection with different pricing options for their programs. Investors should consider carefully any separate transaction and other fees charged by these programs in connection with investing in a share class offered by the program before selecting a share class.
Group Retirement Plans. Group retirement plans (including defined contribution plans, defined benefit plans and deferred compensation plans) available through a retirement plan recordkeeper or third party administrator may purchase Class Z shares. If Prudential Retirement Services is the recordkeeper for your group retirement plan, you may call Prudential at (800) 353-2847 with any questions. Otherwise, investors in group retirement plans should contact their financial intermediary with any questions regarding availability of Class Z shares.

Other Types of Investors. Class Z shares also can be purchased by any of the following:
Certain participants in the MEDLEY Program (group variable annuity contracts) sponsored by Prudential for whom Class Z shares of the PGIM Funds are an available option;
Current and former Directors/Trustees of mutual funds managed by PGIM Investments or any other affiliate of Prudential;
Current and former employees (including their spouses, children and parents) of Prudential and its affiliates; former employees must have an existing investment in the Fund;
Prudential (including any program or account sponsored by Prudential or an affiliate that includes the Fund as an available option);
PGIM Funds, including PGIM funds-of-funds;
Qualified state tuition programs (529 plans); and
Investors working with fee-based consultants for investment selection and allocations.
Qualifying for Class R2 and Class R4 Shares
Group Retirement Plans. Class R2 and Class R4 shares are offered for sale to group retirement plans (including defined contribution plans, defined benefit plans and deferred compensation plans) available through a retirement plan recordkeeper or third party administrator. Class R2 and Class R4 shares are also offered to retirement plans, both where Prudential serves as the retirement plan administrator and where a third party serves as the retirement plan administrator. If Prudential Retirement Services is the recordkeeper for your group retirement plan, you may call Prudential at (800) 353-2847 with any questions. Otherwise, investors in group retirement plans should contact their financial intermediary with any questions regarding availability of Class R2 and Class R4 shares.
Qualifying for Class R6 Shares
Group Retirement Plans. Group retirement plans (including defined contribution plans, defined benefit plans and deferred compensation plans) available through a retirement plan recordkeeper or third party administrator may purchase Class R6 shares. If Prudential Retirement Services is the recordkeeper for your group retirement plan, you may call Prudential at (800) 353-2847 with any questions. Otherwise, investors in group retirement plans should contact their financial intermediary with any questions regarding availability of Class R6 shares.
Institutional Investors. Various institutional investors may purchase Class R6 shares, including, but not limited to, corporations, governmental entities, municipalities, hospitals, insurance companies and IRS Section 501 entities, such as foundations and endowments and other institutional investors who meet requirements as detailed below. Institutional investors are responsible for indicating their eligibility to purchase Class R6 shares at the time of purchase.
Other Types of Investors. Class R6 shares may also be purchased by Prudential, certain programs or accounts sponsored by Prudential (the SmartSolution IRA offered by Prudential Retirement), and PGIM Funds, including PGIM funds-of-funds. Investors in SmartSolution IRA accounts through Prudential’s Personal Retirement Services unit can call (888) 244-6237 with any questions regarding how to purchase shares.
Class R6 shares may only be purchased from financial intermediaries who offer such shares.
Class R6 shares are offered to eligible investors provided that the Fund or its affiliates are not required to make or pay any type of administrative, sub-accounting, networking or revenue sharing payments or similar fees paid to intermediaries.
How Financial Intermediaries are Compensated for Selling Fund Shares
The PGIM Funds are distributed by Prudential Investment Management Services LLC (the “Distributor”), a broker-dealer that is licensed to sell securities. The Distributor generally does not sell shares of the PGIM Funds directly to the public, but instead markets and sells the PGIM Funds through other broker-dealers, 401(k) providers, retirement plan administrators, and other financial intermediaries. Each PGIM Fund is managed by the Manager.
36 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
Only persons licensed with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”), as a registered representative (often referred to as a broker or financial adviser) and associated with a specific financial services firm may sell shares of a mutual fund to you, or to a retirement plan in which you participate.
Rule 12b-1 Fees & Sales Charges. The Distributor has agreements in place with financial intermediaries defining how much each firm will be paid for the sale of a particular mutual fund from front-end sales charges, if any, paid by Fund shareholders and from fees paid to the Distributor by the Fund pursuant to Rule 12b-1 under the 1940 Act (Rule 12b-1). These financial intermediaries then pay their registered representatives who sold you the Fund some or all of what they received from the Distributor. The registered representatives may receive a payment when the sale is made and can, in some cases, continue to receive ongoing payments while you are invested in the Fund. The Distributor may change at any time, without prior notice, the amount of Rule 12b-1 fees that it pays (when the sale is made and/or any ongoing payments) to financial intermediaries and registered representatives so that the Distributor may retain all or a portion of such fees.
“Revenue Sharing” Payments. In addition to the compensation received by financial intermediaries as described above, the Manager or certain of its affiliates (but not the Distributor) may make additional payments (which are often referred to as “revenue sharing” payments) to the financial intermediaries from the Manager's or certain affiliates' own resources, including from the profits derived from management or other fees received from the Fund, without additional direct or indirect cost to the Fund or its shareholders, provided that no such additional payments to financial intermediaries are made with respect to the Fund’s Class R6 shares. Revenue sharing payments are in addition to the front-end sales charges paid by Fund shareholders or fees paid pursuant to plans adopted in accordance with Rule 12b-1. The Manager or certain of its affiliates may revise the terms of any existing revenue sharing arrangement, and may enter into additional revenue sharing arrangements with other financial intermediaries in the future.
Revenue sharing arrangements are intended to foster the sale of Fund shares and/or to compensate financial intermediaries for assisting in marketing or promotional activities in connection with the sale of Fund shares. In exchange for revenue sharing payments, the Fund generally expects to receive the opportunity for the Fund to be sold through the financial intermediaries' sales force or access to third-party platforms or other marketing programs, including but not limited to mutual fund “supermarket” platforms or other sales programs. To the extent that financial intermediaries receiving revenue sharing payments sell more shares of the Fund, the Manager and Distributor benefit from the increase in Fund assets as a result of the management and distribution fees they receive from the Fund, respectively. Increased sales of Fund shares also may benefit shareholders, since an increase in Fund assets may allow the Fund to expand its investment opportunities, and increased Fund assets may result in reduced Fund operating expenses.
Revenue sharing payments, as well as the other types of payments described above, may provide an incentive for financial intermediaries and their registered representatives to recommend or sell shares of the Fund to you and in doing so may create conflicts of interest between the firms' financial interests and their duties to customers.
If your Fund shares are purchased through a retirement plan, the Manager or certain of its affiliates (but not the Distributor) may also make revenue sharing payments to the plan's recordkeeper or an affiliate, which generally is not a registered broker-dealer.
It is likely that financial intermediaries that execute portfolio transactions for the Fund will include those firms with which the Manager and/or certain of its affiliates have entered into revenue sharing arrangements. Neither the Manager nor any subadviser may consider sales of Fund shares as a factor in the selection of broker-dealers to execute portfolio transactions for the Fund. The Manager and certain of its affiliates will not use Fund brokerage as any part of revenue sharing payments to financial intermediaries.
Revenue sharing payments are usually calculated based on a percentage of Fund sales and/or Fund assets attributable to a particular financial services firm. Payments may also be based on other criteria or factors, for example, a fee per each transaction. Specific payment formulas are negotiated based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, reputation in the industry, ability to attract and retain assets, target markets, customer relationships and scope and

quality of services provided. The Manager and/or certain of its affiliates make such payments to financial intermediaries in amounts that generally range from 0.02% up to 0.20% of Fund assets serviced and maintained by the financial intermediaries or from 0.10% to 0.25% of sales of Fund shares attributable to the firm. In addition, the Manager and/or certain of its affiliates may pay flat fees on a one-time or irregular basis for the initial set-up of the Fund on a financial services intermediary’s systems, participation or attendance at a financial services firm's meeting, or for other reasons. These amounts are subject to change. In addition, the costs associated with visiting the financial intermediaries to make presentations, and/or train and educate the personnel of the financial intermediaries, may be paid by the Manager and/or certain of its affiliates, subject to applicable FINRA regulations.
Please contact the registered representative (or his or her firm) who sold shares of the Fund to you for details about any payments the financial intermediary may receive from the Manager and/or certain of its affiliates. You should review your financial intermediary’s disclosure and/or talk to your financial intermediary to obtain more information on how this compensation may have influenced your financial intermediary’s recommendation of the Fund. Additional information regarding these revenue sharing payments is included in the SAI which is available to you at no additional charge.
Other Payments Received by Financial Intermediaries
Administrative, Sub-Accounting and Networking Fees. In addition to, rather than in lieu of, the fees that the Fund may pay to financial intermediaries as described above, and the fees the Fund pays to the Transfer Agent, the Transfer Agent or its affiliates may enter into additional agreements on behalf of the Fund with financial intermediaries pursuant to which the Fund will pay financial intermediaries for certain administrative, sub-accounting and networking services, provided that no such additional payments to financial intermediaries are made with respect to the Fund’s Class R6 shares. These services include maintenance of shareholder accounts by the firms, such as recordkeeping and other activities that otherwise would be performed by the Transfer Agent. Sub-accounting services encompass activities that reduce the burden of recordkeeping to the Fund. Administrative fees are paid to a firm that undertakes, for example, shareholder communications on behalf of the Fund. Networking services are services undertaken to support the electronic transmission of shareholder purchase and redemption orders through the National Securities Clearing Corporation (“NSCC”).
These payments, as discussed above, are paid out of Fund assets and generally based on either (1) a percentage of the average daily net assets of Fund shareholders serviced by a financial intermediary or (2) a fixed dollar amount for each account serviced by a financial services firm. From time to time, the Manager or certain of its affiliates (but not the Distributor) also may pay a portion of the fees for the services to the financial intermediaries at their own expense and out of their own resources.
In addition, the Fund reimburses the Distributor for NSCC fees that are invoiced to the Distributor as the party to the Agreement with NSCC for the administrative services provided by NSCC to the Fund and its shareholders. These administrative services provided by NSCC to the Fund and its shareholders include transaction processing and settlement through Fund/SERV, electronic networking services to support the transmission of shareholder purchase and redemption orders to and from financial intermediaries, and related recordkeeping provided by NSCC to the Fund and its shareholders. These payments are generally based on a transaction fee rate for certain administrative services plus a fee for other administrative services.
Shareholder Services Fee. The Fund has adopted a Shareholder Services Plan with respect to Class R2 and Class R4 shares. Under the terms of the Shareholder Services Plan, the Fund's Class R2 and Class R4 shares are authorized to pay to PMFS, its affiliates or third-party service providers, as compensation for services rendered to the shareholders of such Class R2 or Class R4 shares, a shareholder service fee at an annual rate of 0.10% of the Fund’s average daily net assets attributable to Class R2 or Class R4 shares of the Fund, as applicable.
Pursuant to the Shareholder Services Plan, the Fund's Class R2 or Class R4 shares may pay for shareholder services and/or account maintenance services and other similar personal services and/or services related to the maintenance of shareholder accounts as contemplated by FINRA Rule 2341 or any successor thereto. Because service fees are ongoing, over time they will increase the cost of an investment in the Fund. With respect to the Class R2 shares, these services are in addition to those services that may be provided under the distribution plan for Class R2 shares.

Anti-Money Laundering
In accordance with federal law, the Fund has adopted policies designed to deter money laundering. Under the policies, the Fund will not knowingly engage in financial transactions that involve proceeds from unlawful activity or support terrorist activities, and shall file government reports, including those concerning suspicious activities, as required by applicable law. The Fund will seek to confirm the identity of potential shareholders to include both individuals and entities through documentary and non-documentary methods. Non-documentary methods may include verification of name, address, date of birth and tax identification number with selected credit bureaus. The Fund has also appointed an Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Officer to oversee the Fund's anti-money laundering policies.
Understanding the Price You'll Pay
The price you pay for each share of the Fund is based on the share value. The share value of a mutual fund—known as the net asset value or NAV—is determined by a simple calculation: it's the total value of the Fund (assets minus liabilities) divided by the total number of shares outstanding. For example, if the value of the investments held by Fund XYZ (minus its liabilities) is $1,000 and there are 100 shares of Fund XYZ owned by shareholders, the value of one share of the Fund—or the NAV—is $10 ($1,000 divided by 100).
  
Mutual Fund Shares
The NAV of mutual fund shares changes every day because the value of a fund's portfolio changes constantly. For example, if Fund XYZ holds ACME Corp. bonds in its portfolio and the price of ACME bonds goes up, while the value of the Fund's other holdings remains the same and expenses don't change, the NAV of Fund XYZ will increase.
The Fund's NAV will be determined every day on which the Fund is open as of the close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) (generally, 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time). The Fund's portfolio securities are valued based upon market quotations or, if market quotations are not readily available, at fair value as determined in good faith under procedures established by the Board. These procedures include pricing methodologies for determining the fair value of certain types of securities and other assets held by the Fund that do not have quoted market prices, and authorize the use of other pricing sources, such as bid prices supplied by a principal market maker and evaluated prices supplied by pricing vendors that employ analytic methodologies that take into account the prices of similar securities and other market factors.
If the Fund determines that a market quotation for a security is not reliable based on, among other things, events or market conditions that occur with respect to one or more securities held by the Fund or the market as a whole, after the quotation is derived or after the closing of the primary market on which the security is traded, but before the time that the Fund's NAV is determined, the Fund may use “fair value pricing,” which is implemented by a valuation committee (“Valuation Committee”) consisting of representatives of the Manager or by the Board. The subadviser often provides relevant information for the Valuation Committee meeting. In addition, the Fund may use fair value pricing determined by the Valuation Committee or Board if the pricing source does not provide an evaluated price for a security or provides an evaluated price that, in the judgment of the Manager (which may be based upon a recommendation from the subadviser), does not represent fair value. Equity securities that are traded on foreign exchanges are valued using pricing vendor services that provide fair value model prices. The models generate an evaluated adjustment factor for each security, which is applied to the local closing price to adjust it for post closing market movements. Utilizing that evaluated adjustment factor, the vendor provides an evaluated price for each security. Non-US securities markets are open for trading on weekends and other days when the Fund does not price shares. Therefore, the value of the Fund’s shares may change on days when you will not be able to purchase or redeem the Fund’s shares.
Investments in open-end non-exchange-traded mutual funds will be valued at their NAV as determined as of the close of the NYSE on the date of valuation, which will reflect the mutual fund’s fair valuation procedures.
Visit our website at www.pgiminvestments.com 39

Table of Contents
Different valuation methods may result in differing values for the same security. The fair value of a portfolio security that the Fund uses to determine its NAV may differ from the security's quoted or published price. If the Fund needs to implement fair value pricing after the NAV publishing deadline but before shares of the Fund are processed, the NAV you receive or pay may differ from the published NAV price. The prospectuses of any other mutual funds in which the Fund invests will explain each fund’s procedures and policies with respect to the use of fair value pricing.
Fair value pricing procedures are designed to result in prices for the Fund's securities and its NAV that are reasonable in light of the circumstances which make or have made market quotations unavailable or unreliable, and may have the effect of reducing arbitrage opportunities available to short-term traders. There is no assurance, however, that fair value pricing will more accurately reflect the market value of a security than the market price of such security on that day or that it will prevent dilution of the Fund's NAV by short-term traders.
What Price Will You Pay for Shares of the Fund? For Class A shares, you'll pay the public offering price, which is the NAV next determined after we receive your order to purchase, plus an initial sales charge (unless you're entitled to a waiver). For all other share classes, you will pay the NAV next determined after we receive your order to purchase (remember, there are no up-front sales charges for these share classes). Your broker may charge you a separate or additional fee for purchases of shares. Unless regular trading on the NYSE closes before 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, or later than 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, your order to purchase must be received by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time in order to receive that day's NAV. In the event that regular trading on the NYSE closes before 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, you will receive the following day's NAV if your order to purchase is received after the close of regular trading on the NYSE. The Fund will not treat an intraday unscheduled disruption in NYSE trading as a closure of the NYSE and will price its shares as of 4:00 p.m., if the particular disruption directly affects only the NYSE. We deem an order received when it is received by the Transfer Agent at its processing center. If you submit your order through a broker or other financial intermediary, it may be deemed received when received by the broker or financial intermediary.
Each business day, the Fund's current NAV per share is made available at www.pgiminvestments.com (click on “Performance & Yields,” and then click on “Prices”).
Additional Shareholder Services
As a Fund shareholder, you can take advantage of the following services and privileges:
Automatic Reinvestment. As we explained in the “Fund Distributions and Tax Issues” section, the Fund pays out—or distributes—its net investment income and net capital gains to all shareholders. For your convenience, we will automatically reinvest your distributions in the Fund at NAV, without any sales charge. If you want your distributions paid in cash, you can indicate this preference on your application, or by notifying your broker or the Transfer Agent in writing (at the address below) at least five business days before the date we determine who receives dividends. For accounts held at the Transfer Agent (PMFS), distributions of $10.00 or less on non-retirement accounts will not be paid out in cash, but will be automatically reinvested into your account.
Prudential Mutual Fund Services LLC
P.O. Box 9658
Providence, RI 02940
Automatic Investment Plan (AIP). You can make regular purchases of the Fund by having a fixed amount of money automatically withdrawn from your bank or brokerage account at specified intervals. The minimum for subsequent investments through newly-established AIP accounts must be at least $50 monthly.
Note: New AIPs in Class B shares may not be established. Class B shareholders may not make automatic investments in Class B shares through an AIP. A Class B shareholder must designate a different share class of the same fund or another fund for purchases. Shareholders may select another share class which they are eligible to purchase.

Retirement Plan Services. Prudential offers a wide variety of retirement plans for individuals and institutions, including large and small businesses. For information on IRAs, including Roth IRAs or SEP-IRAs for a one-person business, please contact your financial adviser. If you are interested in opening a 401(k) or other company-sponsored retirement plan (SIMPLE IRAs, SEP plans, Keoghs, 403(b)(7) plans, pension and profit-sharing plans), your financial adviser will help you determine which retirement plan best meets your needs. Complete instructions about how to establish and maintain your plan and how to open accounts for you and your employees will be included in the retirement plan kit you receive in the mail.
Note: Class B shareholders can continue to hold Class B shares in IRA and SIMPLE IRA accounts or in employer-sponsored retirement plans, but new contributions must be made in another share class.
Systematic Withdrawal Plan. A Systematic Withdrawal Plan is available that will provide you with monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual redemption checks. The Systematic Withdrawal Plan is not available to participants in certain retirement plans. Please contact PMFS at (800) 225-1852 for more details.
Reports to Shareholders. Every year we will send you an annual report (along with an updated summary prospectus) and a semi-annual report, which contain important financial information about the Fund. To reduce Fund expenses, we may send one annual shareholder report, one semi-annual shareholder report and one summary prospectus per household, unless you instruct us or your financial intermediary otherwise. If each Fund shareholder in your household would like to receive a copy of the Fund's summary prospectus and shareholder reports, please call us toll free at (800) 225-1852. We will begin sending additional copies of these documents within 30 days of receipt of your request.
Important Note:  Effective January 1, 2021 you will no longer receive mailed copies of the annual and semi-annual reports, unless you elect to continue to receive these mailings.  See the front cover of this Prospectus for more information.
HOW TO SELL YOUR SHARES
You can sell your Fund shares for cash at any time, subject to certain restrictions. For more information about these restrictions, see “Restrictions on Sales” below.
When you sell shares of the Fund—also known as redeeming your shares—the price you will receive will be the NAV next determined after the Transfer Agent or your financial intermediary receives your order to sell (less any applicable CDSC).
Shares Held by Financial Intermediaries. If your financial intermediary holds your shares, your financial intermediary must receive your order to sell no later than the time regular trading on the NYSE closes—which is usually 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time—to process the sale on that day. In the event that regular trading on the NYSE closes before 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, you will receive the following day's NAV if your order to sell is received after the close of regular trading on the NYSE.
Shares Held by the Transfer Agent. If the Transfer Agent holds your shares, PMFS must receive your order to sell no later than the time regular trading on the NYSE closes—which is usually 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time—to process the sale on that day. In the event that regular trading on the NYSE closes before 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, you will receive the following day's NAV if your order to sell is received after the close of regular trading on the NYSE.

Payment for Shares You Have Sold
Shares Held by Financial Intermediaries. Typically, if your order to sell shares is received in good order, payment will be credited to your account within 1 to 3 business days after the order is received, but in any event within seven days. Your broker may charge you a separate or additional fee for sales of shares.
Shares Held by the Transfer Agent. Typically, if your order to sell shares is received in good order, we will send payment on the next business day, but in any event within seven days, regardless of the method of payment (e.g., payment by check, wire or electronic transfer (ACH)).
Restrictions on Sales
If you are selling shares you recently purchased with a check, we may delay sending you the proceeds until your check clears, which can take up to seven days from the purchase date.
As a result of restrictions on withdrawals and transfers imposed by Section 403(b) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, we may consider a redemption request to not be in good order until we obtain information from your employer that is reasonably necessary to ensure that the payment is in compliance with such restrictions, if applicable. In such an event, the redemption request will not be in good order and we will not process it until we obtain information from your employer.
In addition, there are certain times when you may not be able to sell shares of the Fund or when we may delay paying you the proceeds from a sale. As permitted by the SEC, the former may happen only during unusual market conditions or emergencies when the Fund is unable to determine the value of its assets or sell its holdings. For more information, see the SAI.
If you hold your shares directly with the Transfer Agent, you will need to have the signature on your sell order Medallion signature guaranteed if:
You are selling more than $100,000 of shares;
You want the redemption proceeds made payable to someone that is not in the Transfer Agent’s records;
You want the redemption proceeds sent to an address that is not in the Transfer Agent’s records;
You are a business or a trust; or
You are redeeming due to the death of the shareholder or on behalf of the shareholder.
The Medallion signature guarantee may be obtained from an authorized officer from a bank, broker, dealer, securities exchange or association, clearing agency, savings association, or credit union that is participating in one of the recognized Medallion guarantee programs (STAMP, SEMP, or NYSE MSP), but not from a notary public. The Medallion signature guarantee must be appropriate for the dollar amount of the transaction. The Transfer Agent reserves the right to reject sale transactions where the value of the transaction exceeds the value of the surety coverage indicated on the Medallion imprint. The Fund may change the signature guarantee requirements from time to time without prior notice to shareholders. For more information, see the SAI.
How the Fund Pays for Shares You Have Sold
Under normal market conditions, the Fund expects to pay for shares that you have sold primarily by using cash or cash equivalents in its portfolio or selling portfolio assets to generate cash. Supplementally, the Fund may also raise cash to pay for sold shares by short-term borrowing in the form of overdrafts permitted by the Fund’s custodian bank and/or by short-term borrowing from a group of banks through an unsecured credit facility, which is intended to provide the Fund with a temporary additional source of liquidity. In certain circumstances the Fund reserves the right to pay for sold shares by giving you securities from the Fund’s portfolio. If you receive securities, you would incur transaction costs in converting the securities to cash, and you may receive less for the securities than the price at which they were valued for redemption purposes.
During stressed market conditions, it may be impractical or impossible to raise sufficient cash to pay for sold shares through the primary methods described above. In these circumstances, the Fund would be more likely to rely more heavily on the credit facility as a source of liquidity, as described above.

Contingent Deferred Sales Charge (CDSC)
If you sell Class B shares within six years of purchase or Class C shares within 12 months of purchase, you will have to pay a CDSC. In addition, prior to July 15, 2019, if you purchased $1 million or more of Class A shares, although you are not subject to an initial sales charge, you are subject to a 1.00% CDSC for shares redeemed within 12 months of purchase. Effective July 15, 2019, if you purchase $500,000 or more of Class A shares, although you are not subject to an initial sales charge, you are subject to a 1.00% CDSC for shares redeemed within 12 months of purchase. The CDSC is waived for purchases by certain retirement and/or benefit plans. To keep the CDSC as low as possible, we will sell amounts representing shares in the following order:
Amounts representing shares you purchased with reinvested dividends and distributions,
Amounts representing the increase in NAV above the total amount of payments for shares made during the past 12 months for Class A shares (in certain cases), six years for Class B shares, and 12 months for Class C shares, and
Amounts representing the cost of shares held beyond the CDSC period (12 months for Class A shares (in certain cases), six years for Class B shares, and 12 months for Class C shares).
Since shares that fall into any of the categories listed above are not subject to the CDSC, selling them first helps you to avoid—or at least minimize—the CDSC.
Having sold the exempt shares first, if there are any remaining shares that are subject to the CDSC, we will apply the CDSC to amounts representing the cost of shares held for the longest period of time within the applicable CDSC period.
The CDSC is calculated based on the lesser of the original purchase price or the net asset value at redemption. The rate decreases on the anniversary date of your purchase.
The holding period for purposes of determining the applicable CDSC will be calculated from the anniversary date of the purchase, excluding any time Class B or Class C shares were held in a money market fund.
Waiver of the CDSC—Class A Shares
The CDSC will be waived if the Class A shares are sold:
After a shareholder is deceased or permanently disabled (or, in the case of a trust account, after the death or permanent disability of the grantor). This waiver applies to individual shareholders, as well as shares held in joint tenancy, provided the shares were purchased before the death or permanent disability;
To provide for certain distributions—made without IRS penalty—from a qualified or tax-deferred retirement plan, benefit plan, IRA or Section 403(b) custodial account; and
To withdraw excess contributions from a qualified or tax-deferred retirement plan, IRA or Section 403(b) custodial account.
For more information, see the SAI.
Waiver of the CDSC—Class B Shares
The CDSC will be waived if the Class B shares are sold:
After a shareholder is deceased or permanently disabled (or, in the case of a trust account, after the death or permanent disability of the grantor). This waiver applies to individual shareholders, as well as shares held in joint tenancy, provided the shares were purchased before the death or permanent disability;
To provide for certain distributions—made without IRS penalty—from a qualified or tax-deferred retirement plan, benefit plan, IRA or Section 403(b) custodial account;
To withdraw excess contributions from a qualified or tax-deferred retirement plan, IRA or Section 403(b) custodial account; and
On certain redemptions effected through a Systematic Withdrawal Plan.
For more information, see the SAI.
Waiver of the CDSC—Class C Shares
The CDSC will be waived if the Class C shares are sold:

Involuntary Redemption of Small Accounts Held by the Transfer Agent
If the value of your account with PMFS is less than $500 for any reason, we may sell your shares (without charging any CDSC) and close your account. We would do this to minimize the Fund's expenses paid by other shareholders. The involuntary sale provisions do not apply to Automatic Investment Plan (AIP) accounts, employee savings plan accounts, payroll deduction plan accounts, retirement accounts (such as a 401(k) plan, an IRA or other qualified or tax-deferred plan or account), omnibus accounts, and accounts for which a broker or other financial intermediary is responsible for recordkeeping. Prior thereto, if you make a sale that reduces your account value to less than the threshold, we may sell the rest of your shares (without charging any CDSC) and close your account; this involuntary sale does not apply to shareholders who own their shares as part of a retirement account. For more information, see “Purchase, Redemption and Pricing of Fund Shares—Involuntary Redemption” in the SAI.
Account Maintenance Fee for Accounts Held by the Transfer Agent
If the value of your account with PMFS is less than $10,000, with certain exclusions, a $15 annual account maintenance fee will be deducted from your account during the 4th calendar quarter of each year. Any applicable CDSC on the shares redeemed to pay the account maintenance fee will be waived. For more information, see “Purchase, Redemption and Pricing of Fund Shares—Account Maintenance Fee” in the SAI.
90-Day Repurchase Privilege
After you redeem your shares, you have a 90-day period during which you may reinvest back into your account any of the redemption proceeds in shares of the same Fund without paying an initial sales charge. In order to take advantage of this privilege, you must notify the Transfer Agent or your broker at the time of the repurchase. This privilege can only be used once in a 12-month period. For more information, see the SAI.
The terms of this privilege may vary by financial intermediary. For more information, see “Appendix A: Waivers and Discounts Available From Certain Financial Intermediaries.”
Retirement Plans
To sell shares and receive a distribution from your retirement account, call your broker or the Transfer Agent for a distribution request form. There are special distribution and income tax withholding requirements for distributions from retirement plans and you must submit a withholding form with your request to avoid delay. If your retirement plan account is held for you by your employer or plan trustee, you must arrange for the distribution request to be signed and sent by the plan administrator or trustee. For additional information, see the SAI.
HOW TO EXCHANGE YOUR SHARES
You can generally exchange your shares of the Fund for shares of the same class in certain other PGIM Funds—including PGIM Government Money Market Fund—if you satisfy the minimum investment requirements. However, Class R2 and Class R4 shares may not be exchanged for shares of the same class in the Prudential Day One Funds. In addition, Class R6 shares may not be exchanged for Class R6 shares of the Prudential Day One Funds or the PGIM 60/40 Allocation Fund.
44 PGIM Global Total Return Fund

Table of Contents
For example, you can exchange Class A shares of the Fund for Class A shares of other funds in the PGIM Funds mutual fund family, but you can’t exchange Class A shares for a different share class of another fund. After an exchange, at redemption, any CDSC will be calculated from the date of the initial purchase, excluding any time that Class B or Class C shares were held in PGIM Government Money Market Fund. We may change the terms of any exchange privilege after giving you 60 days' notice.
Note: Class B shares may not be purchased or acquired by any Class B shareholder except by exchange from Class B shares of another fund or through dividend and/or capital gains reinvestment.
There is no sales charge for exchanges. However, if you exchange—and then sell—shares within the applicable CDSC period, you must still pay the applicable CDSC. At the time of exchange, CDSC liable shares and free shares move proportionally according to the percentage of total shares you are exchanging. If you have exchanged Class B or Class C shares into PGIM Government Money Market Fund, the time you hold the Class B or Class C shares in the money market fund will not be counted in calculating the required holding period for CDSC liability.
For investors in certain programs sponsored by financial intermediaries that offer shares of the Fund, or whose programs are available through financial intermediaries that offer shares of the Fund for mutual fund “wrap” or asset allocation programs or mutual fund “supermarket” programs, an exchange may be made from Class A to Class Z shares of the Fund in certain limited circumstances. Contact your program sponsor or financial intermediary with any questions.
Exchanging Shares Held by a Financial Intermediary. If you hold shares through a financial intermediary, you must exchange shares through your financial intermediary.
Exchanging Shares Held by the Transfer Agent. If you hold shares through the Transfer Agent, contact your financial advisor or PMFS at (800) 225-1852 or write to PMFS at:

If you participate in any fee-based program where the Fund is an available investment option, you may arrange with the Transfer Agent or your recordkeeper to exchange your Class A shares, if any, for Class Z shares when you elect to participate in the fee-based program. When you no longer participate in the program, you may arrange with the Transfer Agent or your recordkeeper to exchange all of your Class Z shares, including shares purchased while you were in the program, for Class A shares.
Remember, as we explained in the section entitled “Fund Distributions and Tax Issues—If You Sell or Exchange Your Shares,” exchanging shares is considered a sale for tax purposes. Therefore, if the shares you exchange are worth more than the amount that you paid for them, you may have to pay capital gains tax. For additional information about exchanging shares, see the SAI.
Frequent Purchases and Redemptions of Fund Shares
The Fund seeks to prevent patterns of frequent purchases and redemptions of Fund shares by its shareholders. Frequent purchases and sales of shares of the Fund may adversely affect Fund performance and the interests of long-term investors. When a shareholder engages in frequent or short-term trading, the Fund may have to sell portfolio securities to have the cash necessary to redeem the shareholder's shares. This can happen when it is not advantageous to sell any securities, so the Fund's performance may be hurt. When large dollar amounts are involved, frequent trading can also make it difficult to use long-term investment strategies because the Fund cannot predict how much cash it will have to invest. In addition, if the Fund is forced to liquidate investments due to short-term trading activity, it may incur increased brokerage and tax costs. Similarly, the Fund may bear increased administrative costs as a result of the asset level and investment volatility that accompanies patterns of short-term trading. Moreover, frequent or short-term trading by certain shareholders may cause dilution in the value of Fund shares held by other

shareholders. Funds that invest in non-US securities may be particularly susceptible to frequent trading because time zone differences among international stock markets can allow a shareholder engaging in frequent trading to exploit fund share prices that may be based on closing prices of non-US securities established some time before the Fund calculates its own share price. Funds that invest in certain fixed income securities, such as high-yield bonds or certain asset-backed securities, may also constitute an effective vehicle for a shareholder's frequent trading strategy.
The Fund does not knowingly accommodate or permit frequent trading, and the Board has adopted policies and procedures designed to discourage or prevent frequent trading activities by Fund shareholders. In an effort to prevent such practices, the Fund's Transfer Agent monitors trading activity on a daily basis. The Fund has implemented a trading policy that limits the number of times a shareholder may purchase Fund shares or exchange into the Fund and then sell those shares within a specified period of time (a “round-trip transaction”) as established by the Fund's Chief Compliance Officer (“CCO”). The CCO is authorized to set and modify the parameters of the trading policy at any time as required to prevent the adverse impact of frequent trading on Fund shareholders.
The CCO has defined frequent trading as one or more round-trip transactions in shares of the Fund within a 30-day period. If this occurs, the shareholder’s account will be subject to a 60-day warning period. If a second round-trip occurs before the conclusion of the 60-day warning period, a trading suspension will be placed on the account by the Fund’s Transfer Agent that will remain in effect for 90 days. The trading suspension will relate to purchases and exchange purchases (but not redemptions) in the Fund in which the frequent trading occurred. Exceptions to the trading policy will not normally be granted.
Transactions in the PGIM money market funds, exchange traded funds and PGIM Short-Term Corporate Bond Fund are excluded from this policy. In addition, transactions by affiliated PGIM Funds or certain unaffiliated funds, which are structured as “funds-of-funds,” and invest primarily in other mutual funds within the PGIM Fund family, are not subject to the limitations of the trading policy and are not considered frequent or short-term trading.
This policy does not apply to systematic purchases and redemptions (e.g., payroll purchases, systematic withdrawals and rebalancing transactions or other similar transactions not initiated by a shareholder or financial professional on the transaction date). Generally, purchases and redemptions will not be considered “systematic” unless the transaction is pre-established or scheduled for a specific date.
The Fund reserves the right to reject or cancel, without prior notice, all additional purchases or exchanges into the Fund by a shareholder. Moreover, the Fund may direct a broker-dealer or other intermediary to block a shareholder account from future trading in the Fund. The Transfer Agent will monitor daily trading activity above a certain threshold, which may be changed from time to time, over a rolling 90-day period. If a purchase into the Fund is rejected or canceled, the shareholder will receive a return of the purchase amount.
If the Fund is offered to qualified plans on an omnibus basis or if Fund shares may be purchased through other omnibus arrangements, such as through a financial intermediary such as a broker-dealer, a bank, an insurance company separate account, an investment adviser, or an administrator or trustee of a retirement plan (“Intermediaries”) that holds your shares in an account under its name, Intermediaries maintain the individual beneficial owner records and submit to the Fund only aggregate orders combining the transactions of many beneficial owners. The Fund itself generally cannot monitor trading by particular beneficial owners. The Fund has notified Intermediaries in writing that it expects the Intermediaries to impose restrictions on transfers by beneficial owners. Intermediaries may impose different or stricter restrictions on transfers by beneficial owners. Consistent with the restrictions described above, investments in the Fund through retirement programs administered by Prudential Retirement will be similarly identified for frequent purchases and redemptions and appropriately restricted.
The Transfer Agent also reviews aggregate omnibus net flows above a certain threshold. In cases where the activity is considered unusual, the Intermediary may be contacted by the Transfer Agent to obtain additional information. The Transfer Agent has the authority to cancel all or a portion of the trade if the information reveals that the activity relates

to potential offenders. Where appropriate, the Transfer Agent may request that the Intermediary block a financial adviser or client from accessing the Fund. If necessary, the Fund may be removed from a particular Intermediary’s platform.
Shareholders seeking to engage in frequent trading activities may use a variety of strategies to avoid detection and, despite the efforts of the Fund to prevent such trading, there is no guarantee that the Fund, the Transfer Agent or Intermediaries will be able to identify these shareholders or curtail their trading practices. The Fund does not have any arrangements intended to permit trading of its shares in contravention of the policies described above.
Telephone Redemptions or Exchanges
You may redeem your shares of the Fund if the proceeds of the redemption do not exceed $250,000 or exchange your shares in any amount by calling the Fund at (800) 225-1852 and communicating your instructions in good order to a customer service representative before 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. You will receive a redemption or exchange amount based on that day's NAV. Certain restrictions apply; please see the section entitled “How to Sell Your Shares—Restrictions on Sales” above for additional information. In the event that regular trading on the NYSE closes before 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, you will receive the following day's NAV if your order to sell or exchange is received after the close of regular trading on the NYSE.
The Transfer Agent will record your telephone instructions and request specific account information before redeeming or exchanging shares. The Fund will not be liable for losses due to unauthorized or fraudulent telephone instructions if it follows instructions that it reasonably believes are made by the shareholder. If the Fund does not follow reasonable procedures, it may be liable.
In the event of drastic economic or market changes, you may have difficulty in redeeming or exchanging your shares by telephone. If this occurs, you should consider redeeming or exchanging your shares by mail or through your broker.
The telephone redemption and exchange procedures may be modified or terminated at any time. If this occurs, you will receive a written notice from the Fund.
Expedited Redemption Privilege
If you have selected the Expedited Redemption Privilege, you may have your redemption proceeds sent directly to your bank account. Expedited redemption requests may be made by telephone or letter, must be received by the Transfer Agent prior to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time to receive a redemption amount based on that day's NAV and are subject to the terms and conditions regarding the redemption of shares. In the event that regular trading on the NYSE closes before 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, you will receive the following day's NAV if your order to sell is received after the close of regular trading on the NYSE. For more information, see the SAI. The Expedited Redemption Privilege may be modified or terminated at any time without notice.

APPENDIX A: WAIVERS AND DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE FROM CERTAIN FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES
The availability of certain sales charge waivers and discounts will depend on whether you purchase your shares directly from the Fund or through a financial intermediary. Intermediaries may have different policies and procedures regarding the availability of front-end sales load waivers or contingent deferred (back-end) sales load (CDSC) waivers, which are discussed below. In all instances, it is the purchaser's responsibility to notify the Fund or the purchaser's financial intermediary at the time of purchase of any relationship or other facts qualifying the purchaser for sales charge waivers or discounts. For waivers and discounts not available through a particular intermediary, shareholders will have to purchase Fund shares through the applicable intermediary to receive these waivers or discounts.
Shareholders purchasing Fund shares through a Merrill Lynch platform or account are eligible only for the following load waivers (front-end sales charge waivers and contingent deferred, or back-end, sales charge waivers) and discounts, as applicable, which may differ from those disclosed elsewhere in this Fund's Prospectus or SAI.
Front-end Sales Load Waivers on Class A Shares available at Merrill Lynch

Employees and registered representatives of Merrill Lynch or its affiliates and their family members
