Closed-end funds involve risk for investors. Closed-end funds are traded on the secondary market through a stock exchange. The closed-end fund's investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares of closed-end funds may trade above (a premium) or below (a discount) the net asset value (NAV) of the fund's portfolio. The distribution rate of the preferred shares is based on the $40 liquidation preference. Payment of distributions is not assured and is made only when declared by the Fund’s Board of Trustees. A portion of any planned distributions may be a return of capital, which may have the effect of increasing the Fund’s existing leverage. The distributions that include a return of capital should not be considered as dividend yield nor as part of the total return of an investment in the Fund.
The market price for a closed-end fund is based on supply and demand which fluctuates daily based on many factors, such as economic conditions and global events, investor sentiment, and security specific factors. The possibility of a market decline should be considered market risk. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective and you can lose money by investing in a closed-end fund. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
The use of leverage, which can be described as exposure to changes in price at a ratio greater than the amount of equity invested, through the issuance of preferred shares, magnifies both the favorable and unfavorable effects of price movements in the investments made by the Fund. The Fund’s use of leverage in its investment operations subjects it to substantial risk of loss.
