    NOTES:

    Distribution type sourced from Morningstar. In general, managed distributions may be sourced from net investment income, realized gains and return of capital. CEFConnect.com does not undertake to disclose specific information about closed-end fund distribution sources. For specific information about a fund's distribution sources, visit the fund sponsor's website.

    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.
