The Fund is designed as a long-term investment and not as a trading vehicle. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program. Investors should carefully review and consider the risks listed below before investing.

Investment and Market Risk: An investment in common shares is subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest. Your investment in common shares represents an indirect investment in the corporate securities owned by the Fund, which generally trade in the over-the-counter markets. Your common shares at any point in time may be worth less than your original investment, even after taking into account the reinvestment of Fund dividends and distributions.Price Risk: Shares of closed-end investment companies like the Fund frequently trade at a discount to their NAV. Your common shares at any point in time may be worth less than your original investment, even after taking into account the reinvestment of Fund dividends and distributions.Leverage Risk: Each Fund’s use of leverage creates the possibility of higher volatility for the Fund’s per share NAV, market price, distributions and returns. There is no assurance that a Fund’s leveraging strategy will be successful.Issuer Credit Risk: This is the risk that a security in a Fund's portfolio will fail to make dividend or interest payments when due.Illiquid Securities Risk: This is the risk that the Fund may not be able to sell securities in its portfolio at the time or price desired by the Fund.Below-Investment Grade Risk: Investments in securities below investment grade quality are predominantly speculative and subject to greater volatility and risk of default.Unrated Investment Risk: In determining whether an unrated security is an appropriate investment for the Fund, the manager will consider information from industry sources, as well as its own quantitative and qualitative analysis, in making such a determination. However, such a determination by the manager is not the equivalent of a rating by a rating agency. Risks from Unsecured Adjustable Rate Loans or Insufficient Collateral Securing Adjustable Rate Loans: Some of the adjustable rate loans in which the Fund may invest will be unsecured or insufficiently collateralized, thereby increasing the risk of loss to the Fund in the event of issuer default. Senior Loan Risk: Senior loans, both secured and unsecured, may not be rated by a national rating agency at the time of investment, generally will not be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and generally will not be listed on a securities exchange. In addition, the amount of public information available with respect to senior loans generally is less extensive than that available for more widely rated, registered and exchange-listed securities.

** The premium/discount is calculated as (most recent price/most recent NAV) -1.


Distributions are sourced entirely from net investment income, unless noted otherwise. Distribution rates represent the latest declared regular distribution, annualized, relative to the most recent market price and NAV. Special distributions, including special capital gains distributions, are not included in the calculation.
