    Basic Information

    Investment Objective

    The Fund normally invests at least 80% of Managed Assets in (i) Senior Loans and investments with similar economic characteristics (such as second lien loans and unsecured loans) and (ii) Corporate Bonds. The Fund expects initially that almost all of the Senior Loans and Corporate Bonds in which it will invest will be rated below investment grade. Corporate Bonds rated below investment grade are often referred to as 'high yield' securities. Under normal market conditions, the Fund expects to invest up to 30% of its Managed Assets in CLOs.

    The following information applies to closed-end funds in general: Fund shares are not guaranteed or endorsed by any bank or other insured depository institution, and are not federally insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Shares of closed-end funds are subject to investment risks, including the possible loss of principal invested. There can be no assurance that fund objectives will be achieved. Closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value. NAV returns are net of fund expenses, and assume reinvestment of distributions.
