Important disclosure

For Class A shares, the maximum front-end sales charge is 5.75%. Performance including sales charge assumes the sales charge for the corresponding time period.
Public offering price (POP) is the price of one share of a fund including any sales charges. Net asset value (NAV) is the value of one share of the fund excluding any sales charges. Had sales charges been included, performance would be lower. Returns for periods of less than one year are not annualized.

Important disclosure

The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted-average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) ratings, based on risk-adjusted returns.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The Fund

The Wells Fargo Advantage Diversified Income Builder Fund seeks long-term total return by principally investing in an actively managed portfolio of fixed-income and equity securities, with an emphasis on fixed income.

Competitive Advantages

  • Asset class flexibility: Within its guidelines of keeping approximately 70%-90% of the fund in fixed income and 10%-30% in equities, the team has flexibility in the types of investments it can own. Within the fixed-income universe, the team focuses on high-yield bonds and could buy a company's regular debt or its convertible debt, depending on which offers better value. Within the equity universe, the team can invest across market capitalizations and purchase common or preferred stock. The team believes this flexibility offers the opportunity to add value.


Balanced funds may invest in stocks and bonds. Stock values fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions. Bond values fluctuate in response to the financial condition of individual issuers, general market and economic conditions, and changes in interest rates. In general, when interest rates rise, bond values fall and investors may lose principal value. Certain investment strategies tend to increase the total risk of an investment (relative to the broader market). This fund is exposed to foreign investment risk and high-yield securities risk. Consult the fund's prospectus for additional information on these and other risks.

Figures quoted represent past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance shown without sales charges would be lower if sales charges were reflected. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted and assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Current month-end performance is available at the funds' website, wellsfargo.com/advantagefunds.
