About NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund
NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund is a closed-end fund managed by NexPoint Advisors, L.P. NHF’s investment objectives are to provide both current income and capital appreciation. NHF is invested primarily in below investment grade debt and equity securities and has the ability to hedge risk. The manager attempts to exceed the return of the Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index in a transparent, registered fund format with monthly dividends. An investment in NHF is not appropriate for all investors. No assurance can be given that NHF will achieve its investment objectives.
Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount to net asset value. The price of NHF’s shares is determined by a number of factors, several of which are beyond the control of NHF. Therefore, NHF cannot predict whether its shares will trade at, below or above net asset value. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
