    Closed-end fund historical distribution sources have included net investment income, realized gains, and return of capital. For more detailed information on the distributions of a specific fund, please visit the sponsor's website.

    NOTES:

    Distribution type sourced from Morningstar. 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.
