The Fund’s expense ratio has been deducted from the Fund performance. The performance data quoted here represents past performance. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted above. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. The Fund's investment advisor has contractually agreed to reduce its fees and/or absorb expenses of the Fund, at least until March 31, 2015, to ensure that the net annual Fund operating expenses will not exceed 1.99 percent, subject to possible recoupment from the Fund in future years. Without these waivers, the Fund's total annual operating expenses would be 24.8 percent. Please review the Fund’s prospectus for more information regarding the Fund’s fees and expenses.

This distribution policy is subject to change. The Fund may make distributions that are treated as return of capital. A return of capital may occur for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in a Fund is paid back to you. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect a Fund’s investment performance and should not be confused with “yield,” “income” or “profit.” The Fund’s distribution amounts were calculated based on the ordinary income received from the underlying investments, including net investment income. Shareholders should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net profit. A portion of the distributions consist of a return of capital based on the character of the distributions received from the underlying holdings, primarily Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT). The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of all distributions in 2014 will be made after the end of the year. Shareholders should note that return of capital will reduce the tax basis of their shares and potentially increase the taxable gain, if any, upon disposition of their shares. There is no assurance that the Company will continue to declare distributions or that they will continue at these rates.

*To calculate the quarterly distribution, the Fund’s management will take the income received from the Fund’s portfolio, subtract expenses and divide the result by the total number of shares the Fund’s investors own.

**Target yield is measured at the Fund level and is not equal to actual returns for an investor. As portfolio and market conditions change, future distributions will vary and target yields may not be obtained in the future.

*** Maximum Offering Price (MOP) for Class A shares includes the Fund’s maximum sales charge of 6.5%.

A portion of the distributions consist of a return of capital based on the character of the distributions received from the underlying holdings, primarily Real Estate Investment Trusts. The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of all distributions in 2015 will be made after the end of the year. Shareholders should note that return of capital will reduce the tax basis of their shares and potentially increase the taxable gain, if any, upon disposition of their shares.

Investing involves risk. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, and an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Alternative investment funds, ETFs, mutual funds and closed-end funds are subject to management and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. Preferred securities are subject to credit risk and interest rate risk. Convertible securities are typically issued as bonds or preferred shares with the option to convert to equities. As a result, convertible securities are hybrids that have characteristics of both bonds and common stocks and are subject to risks associated with both debt securities and equity securities. Issuers of debt securities may not make scheduled interest and principal payments, resulting in losses to the Fund. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities. The use of leverage, such as borrowing money to purchase securities, will cause the Fund to incur additional expenses and magnify the Fund's gains or losses.

There currently is no secondary market for the Fund's shares and the Fund expects that no secondary market will develop. Limited liquidity is provided to shareholders only through the Fund's quarterly repurchase offers. Investments in lesser-known, small and medium capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations. The Fund will not invest in real estate directly, but because the Fund will concentrate its investments in securities of REITs, its portfolio will be significantly impacted by the performance of the real estate market. There are risks associated with REITs. Risks include declines from deteriorating economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property, and defaults by borrowers. The sales of securities to fund repurchases could reduce the market price of those securities, which in turn would reduce the Fund's NAV.
