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.
