Managed Distribution Policy: This fund has adopted a Managed Distribution
Policy, designed to provide attractive, quarterly distributions throughout the course of the year. Under this policy, the fund seeks to maintain a stable quarterly distribution amount (in cents per common share), comprised of payments received from portfolio companies, as well as net realized fund portfolio capital gains and, if necessary, a return of capital (representing in some cases
net unrealized capital gains). The fund will determine the tax characteristics of all fund distributions after the end of the calendar year and will provide shareholders such information at that time.

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. Certain of these risks and considerations may include:
The possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest.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.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.The Fund’s investment program and the tax treatment of Fund distributions may be affected by IRS interpretations of the Internal Revenue Code and future changes in tax laws and regulations, including changes resulting from the “sunset” provisions that may apply to the favorable tax treatment of tax-advantaged dividends. There can be no assurance as to the percentage of a Fund’s distributions that will qualify as tax-advantaged dividends.
Your investment in the Fund is linked to the performance of the
commercial real estate markets, which may fall due to increasing vacancies, declining
rents or the failure of borrowers to pay their loans.
