Holdings may vary and are subject to change without notice.

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. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Holdings of inverse floating rate securities show the amount of the residual inverse floater, and not the amount of the underlying bond and an associated liability to the holder of the associated floating rate security, and therefore may not be fully consistent with generally accepted accounting principals.

An investment in this fund presents a number of risks and is not suitable for all investors. Investors should carefully review and consider potential risks before investing. For more detailed information on the specific risks associated with this fund, please view the Overview tab.


Totals may not add to 100% due to rounding.
