To receive a distribution, you must be a registered shareholder of the fund on the record date. Distributions are paid to shareholders on the payment date.

Past distributions are not indicative of future distributions. Please consult your tax professional or financial adviser for more information regarding your tax situation.
The price used to calculate market returns (“Market Price”) of the Fund generally is determined using the midpoint between the bid and the ask on the primary securities exchange on which shares of the Fund are listed for trading, as of the time that the Fund’s NAV is calculated. The Fund’s Market Price may be at, above or below its NAV. Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The risks associated with Senior Loans are similar to the risks of below investment grade securities, although Senior Loans are typically senior and secured in contrast to other below investment grade securities, which are often subordinated and unsecured. Below investment grade securities may involve greater levels of interest rate, credit, liquidity, and valuation risk than higher-rated instruments. Narrowly focused funds typically exhibit higher volatility.
